  1. Re: Does a Photograph's medium change your opinion of it?

    I say the medium can enhance the effect of the image, but is not the sole factor. I've seen plenty of ugly images created in every possible medium.

    Re: Gradients on short edge of 4x5 Negs

    Are the thin gray borders around the images ones that you added digitally? If so, they are not helpful here. It would be helpful to show a scan of the entire negative, all of the rebate to include...

    When I saw that this thread was about social media arguing between 2 or more people I usually ignore it. It is past time to lock this unproductive and reductive thread.

    Re: A quick comparison of three 135mm 4x5 lenses

    I think shooting all of them at near wide open, like f/5.6 would have been more interesting to see things like how out of focus areas look, possible distortion, etc.
  5. Re: Bought a nice Linhof Master Technika Classic. Can I do the CLA myself to save mon

    No, you did not buy a "nice Linhof Master Technika Classic" - you got one with serious problems which should have been disclosed prior to the sale. I would return it and shop wisely next time.

    Re: 4x5 sheets with a white "triangle"

    Not a lens problem. You have fogging of the film from light leaking around a badly seated bellows or lensboard perhaps.

    Well, if you "commission" someone to build a camera, then they are building the camera. Or, do you want to build one from scratch, or from a kit?
    I suggest you buy one from this forum, or ask...

    It will be easier with a camera without a fixed front bed, so a Canham 4x5 DLC, with normal or bag bellows.

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    The greater sharpness in the Howtek scan makes a HUGE difference in tonal and object separation. That is the main barrier to getting a great scan from the Epson - sharpness.
