    Re: Budget 5x7/8x10 cameras with front tilt

    My 5x7 Ansco field camera has front tilt and definitely qualifies as budget. It's pretty heavy though

    Re: 5x7 Filmholders

    Maybe contact a member here named "Bush". If you check his posts you'll see he had an old 5x7 Linhof that he says takes one sided holders. He even had a photo of them.

    I LOVE TMY and wish that I could afford to buy several boxes. I hope it happens and maybe one day I can buy a ton of it. There is no better film made today for contact printing.

    I found some Azo postcard stock from 1921 and was able to print on it, which amazed me. This was 5 years ago.

    Re: 210mm / 240mm or 300mm for 5x7

    You might be able to find a G-Claron in 210 or 240 for that price. It's a sharp lens and will have lots of coverage for 5x7. I don't know how well it would suit portraiture though.

    Hi Luke. Welcome to the LF Forum.

    I think maybe we've met before. Did you come to Cambridge to buy a Canonet from me a few years ago?

    After going back & forth between 4x5, 5x7, & 8x10, I've decided that 5x7 suites me best. I contact print & just love the size. Big gems.

    You can develop 4x5 in a 5x7 tray without issues, though some prefer a larger tray. For developing by inspection, try a red safelight (very dim) for TMY. Green just doesn't work with this film for...

    Re: 165mm 6.8 Angulon image circle

    I've owned and used one on 8x10. It will certainly cover, but not by much. The corners looked fine to me without movements, but seemed to get soft pretty quick with some rise.

    You could pull the back off, insert the holder, and put it back on. I do that sometimes when I have a holder that won't slide in smoothly.
