    Re: Sekonic Home Studio Tips

    With the virus, my wife is home, and her job has her doing daily virus-related video Zoom calls, videos for distribution online, etc. So, I'm...

    Re: Reading a Luna-Pro

    I found your problem:

    "This is a bit embarrassing, but its been many many years since I used the Gossen Luna-Pro in the closet."

    Step out of the closet! No light there.

  3. Re: Better lens for my Crown Graphic?

    Simply repeating what I've read: swapping out lenses, even if same (front?) focal length, doesn't guarantee the cam will work. Probably due to reason stated above. Also heard that the Xenars vary...

    Re: Film availability in India?

    I think I'll carry it on. I checked on Amazon.in for HP5+, and it is available for about $125 USD. I believe that price is partly due to my logging in from the U.S. Perhaps it is cheaper if I ordered...

    You're right, courtesy is not always enough. My experience is that some of the security personnel are low level without any independent ability to make judgements. It can be super frustrating. Also,...

    Re: Film availability in India?

    I'd be very interested in B&W 4X5 availability in Bangalore. Our early April trip to visit my wife's folks is cancelled due to virus issues. As they are aging, it's troubling. But we will go when we...
  11. Re: Photo travel by vehicle, what's your favorite?

    Yes I do-- magical indeed--but no I won't. Still working on proper exposures, processing. About to make my first print. I'll stick to the camera on a cyle, but thanks!

    Got it. I figured, but thought maybe it referred to some action of the camera.

    Your LF lenses are agnostic to that branding. Nikon or Canon iis all about their TTL proprietary systems. Not an issue with LF shutters actually. Which I like. I purchased Nikon trigger for my LF...
  18. Re: Folding problem with Intrepid 4x5 MK4 camera

    After examining my Intrepid MK4 further, I discovered I only had damage on one side, and that was very slight, likely because I didn't fold it very often at all. Maybe just once.

    I contacted...

  22. Re: Folding problem with Intrepid 4x5 MK4 camera

    Thanks for birddogging this. As I said, I'm traveling and don't have my Intrepid handy. It's a real disappointment. I'd hoped it was my folding particulars that were the problem. Iwonder if this is a...
  23. Re: Folding problem with Intrepid 4x5 MK4 camera

    Yes, I agree. That's why I said earlier that I assumed I must have refolded with the settings not being adjusted properly. Then, due to a change in my short-term priorities, I got a Crown Graphic and...

    Re: Chroma 4x5 camera - review

    Thanks for the detailed Chroma review. For me, it was either the Chroma or the Intrepid. I'm about 3 months into this Large Format trip. I started with a brand new Intrepid 4x5 at about the same...

    Your journey mirrors mine. I just started using my Intrepid 4x5 in the studio, with Flashpoint R2 trigger (Godox) and Godox QS1200ii mono lights. Or Godox AD200's. Using Rodenstock lens, but as...
