    Thanks Roger. Sounds like it may just be do-able. Now then, I'm curious on the big Copal units; 5.6 of what?? 5.6 of 2.95 would be a 16.5" lens. If you're working with a 240mm lens is there a...
  3. Re: Help needed with Wollensak f:4, 11.5 inch Verito

    John, I just measured my 11.5 Verito. The glass area matches the math. 4 into 11.5 gives 2 7/8" glass area and that's exactly what I measured. So can someone who has one of these big Copal's...

  5. Re: Help needed with Wollensak f:4, 11.5 inch Verito

    With big lenses that will give you the effect you're wanting remember that the size of the Sinar Copal will act as a choke. So if the glass area of the Verito is 2.85 inches, and you use a shutter...

    Beautiful and interesting. Why do you think they are invisible to the emulsion? Do you have a color snapshot from the phone or something to compare how our eyes see them compared to the collodion?

    I fiddled with this years ago. They are such fine lenses. The 127 4.7 should also cover. The 250 being a true tele-photo does not. Nor does the 75 f5.6 or either of the 105's.

    A beautiful image. Usually to get edge swirl there has to be stuff like tree branches out beyond the focused plain. Things roughly in or near the plane of focus don't swirl much.
