    Re: Chamonix Camera Rental Services

    Yes we can do that, but you have to wait for about three months as our next batch of 11x14 cameras comes out in October. PM or email me in a few weeks if interested.

    Film holders is a good idea, especially those unusual sizes. Not sure about tripod due the high costs of shipping.

    Over the years, people often ask me if they can try our cameras first before their purchase. They usually have our bigger cameras in their minds when they asked me this because the...

    Re: Kodak D-76 8x10 in Expert drum

    I use Jobo 3005 with D76 at 1:1 all the time. 800ml for four sheets of 8x10 is not a problem at all.
  8. Re: Schneider Corp. of America (Kern) Gold Dot Dagor 14" f/8 (355/8)

    That lens is good one for 8x10. You will have soft corners for 11x14 if you shoot at infinity. I found this out on a trip with my 11x14 camera a few years ago. Incredibly sharp where it covers. I use...

    Re: View camera as extinction light meter

    What I don't get is

    Super-XX at f/16 like this: f/8 32 seconds, f/16 8 seconds, f/22 2 seconds, and f/64 1/2 second.

    I thought smaller aperture need more time.

    Re: View camera as extinction light meter

    I am still trying to make sense of this:

    Then there is a chart for Super-XX at f/16 like this: f/8 32 seconds, f/16 8 seconds, f/22 2 seconds, and f/64 1/2 second.

    If you can build something like this, I think many 810 camera users will be interested. Something with 100 degree coverage.
