  1. Re: Is there such as thing as a modern, fast, compact 360 for 8x10?

    What do you need the f6.8 for? I ask as most LF lenses are not performing at their best at wide open.

    I use the 355mm G Claron a lot. One thing that always surprises me is the brightness of the...

  3. Re: Are there alternatives for Schneider Super Angulon XL 210mm to cover 11x14"?

    Filters are a pain for the big 210mm’s.

    I have 2 Polarisers for my 210mm SA, but have not seen any contrast filters available (127mm).

    Would love a deep yellow or orange filter....

    For the OP's design:

    Is there any reason that the sides are timber? For portability, couldn't you have a skeletal design with fabric (infill) sides/back to reduce weight? I understand that the...
  6. Re: Stacking center filter with other filters

    I used to mount the Pol filter behind the CF on my 72mm.

    No issues as far as I could tell.
  7. Re: Lee Filters - anyone using these or Cokin et al squares?

    Both Lee and Cokin produce horrible colour casts for positives. Very difficult to correct.

    Companies like Kase, Nisi and Breakthrough have left them in the dust with newer optical coatings.
  8. Re: Grad ND, Contrast and Color FIlter Setup with Center Filter

    When I had the same setup with a 90mm f5.6 (and the 72mm), I would simply Blutac the Grad in place.

    Cut with a wet diamond saw. No dust issues. I’m rebuilding my 7x17 to have a lot of CF. Using a tile saw to cut the pieces. The blade has its own reservoir and dust isn’t an issue.

    Perhaps the subject of a new...

    Re: Epson V700 High Resolution lens

    Didn’t the V750 also come with the wet mount system as standard?

    I don’t think that the differentiation was solely based on the lens’ coating; it was a better “system” than the V700.

    Re: Lee 105mm CPL Filter Factor?

    It depends on the wavelength of the light and the filter’s ability to transmit them. So, yes. I will make a difference.
