    Re: High-Speed Sync for Speed Graphic

    One big reason to be able to use faster shutter speeds with flash is to be able to balance ambient light with flash output. Synching any electronic flash to properly expose an entire sheet of film at...

    Re: High-Speed Sync for Speed Graphic

    You can only properly synch an electronic flash with a for shutter if the flash is fired when the curtain opening covers the entire film area. That will only be at slower speeds on your camera.

  7. Re: Fujinon 180mm. f/9 - Curious about some specs.

    Why do that? It is easier, and faster, to carry them separately and then just mount the lens on the camera. It’s a snap in procedure.

    Re: How the Linhof Technika became Super…

    Movements are not designed to be handheld on a Technika.

    The top flap started with the Master.

    Wide angle is much more convenient on the Master as well as the V. It is most convenient on the...

    Re: Cameras with geared swing movement

    Not to forget that the movements are silky smooth, without lubricants, each movement has separate locks and tilts, on the S version, has a removable detent.

    Re: Cameras with geared swing movement

    No, more gearing man’s more weight.
    A LInhof TK 45S will do everything you want, and then more, but with no geared movements othe then focus.
  24. Re: 8x10" at which length, is an auxiliary bellows support necessary?

  25. Re: Official length of Linhof Kardan TL 8x10" bellows?

    Where?
  26. Re: 8x10" at which length, is an auxiliary bellows support necessary?

    Shouldn’t be necessary. If the bellows develops sag just take it off and rotate it 90°. If you want, since the rail is flat on top just put a paper cup under the bellows.
  27. Re: Official length of Linhof Kardan TL 8x10" bellows?

    As long as you aren’t using the longer rail accessory. Longest one I sold was a meter long.

    Re: Using filters on LF lenses

    Focus shift is focus shift. If you place a filter behind the lens, and that lens was not designed for a rear filter, then you have created a focus shift.

    Re: Using filters on LF lenses

    Any dirt, dust smudges, etc will effect the lens from behind much more then in front. And there will be a focus shift.
