    Re: Darkroom vs Scanning

    Your experience raises an interesting point. You have to see the actual print you want to buy before buying it. If you order over the web, the version you get might not be to your liking.

    Mark, That isn't correct. The Chamonix axis on my 45H-1 is not below the frame but about 1/5 the distance above the bottom of the frame. So the picture stays in focus in the frame where the axis is....

  5. Re: Which first Rear Movement and Asymmetrical Tilt Chamonix 45F2

    With the Chamonix 45H-1 I have, the axis is about 1/5 of the way from the bottom. Often in a landscape, that line is in the sky where you don;t want to focus or really can't becasue there's no...
  6. Re: Which first Rear Movement and Asymmetrical Tilt Chamonix 45F2

    Yes that;s correct.

    Also, it may be easier to use the iterative front tilt method if the asymmetrical lines don't line up with the focus points you're interested in. That saves the time to raise...

  12. Re: Which first Rear Movement and Asymmetrical Tilt Chamonix 45F2

    Respectfully, I checked the focus after doing the tilt and it didn't move. No refocusing was necessary on my Chamonix 45H-1. Which asymmetrical camera did you try that required refocusing?
  13. Re: Which first Rear Movement and Asymmetrical Tilt Chamonix 45F2

    Mark, That's not correct. No secondary focusing has to be done with asymmetrical tilts. That's the whole point of them.

    The line on the ground glass is in the same position as the hinge on the...

    Re: New here and looking for lens advice

    Consider filters. If you use them or will, you want to get filters for the largest size lens. Then use an adapter to fit the filter on the smaller-sized required lenses.

    Those emulsions I believe use T grain which has different grain than the traditional films like Tri-x. Ektar negative color also uses them I believe.

    Eye fatigue is a problem. We adapt to what we look at for too long. One check is to view the histogram. If you do that, you can readily see the right space is empty.
