  1. Re: De Vere 5108, negative carrier and timer questions

    A friend of mine spent a lot of time having a custom spring-loaded negative carrier made. In the end, he went back to using glass. It doesn't involve punching holes, it keeps the negative flatter,...
  2. Re: De Vere 5108, negative carrier and timer questions

    I'm afraid not. I have two 504 carriers, but I don't have a 5108. I used to, though. Think two sheets of 1/8" thick aluminum, hinged on one end, with space for metal inserts or class plates.
  3. Re: De Vere 5108, negative carrier and timer questions

    I may have a spare De Vere Universal Timer, if I can find it. No, anti-Newton glass is needed whenever the shininess of the film, whether base or emulsion, is just right with the humidity...

  5. Re: studio space problems with soft boxes

    It looks like it'll work fine. My last studio was a bit smaller, and it didn't have any windows.
  6. Re: studio space problems with soft boxes

    Bounce light. Use black v-flats or fabric as subtractive fill if needed.

    I agree, Alan. I have a kinda similar cart, but mine...there's something in the geometry of it that makes it unpleasant for me to pull it. How is yours?

    Re: 210mm or 240mm for Portraits?

    I agree with Bernice. How a lens is used will also affect it's out-of-focus rendering, which changes with how close one is to the subject, f stop, distance to background, lighting...

    Hard in what way? I'm not disagreeing, I'm just not sure what you mean. I did also photograph the scene with a Verito, but I won't be able to get to editing that one for awhile.

    "can be lost" doesn't entail that important data is lost. Your statement seems to say that the big danger in applying a gamma to the scan data is that the endpoints shouldn't be clipped. I agree...
  23. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    The superiority of a linear scan for standard photo work is debatable. It certainly wasn't standard practice for high-end scanning during the heyday of film scanning. Steven can correct me, but I...
