    Re: Wobbly Ries Tripod Head

    I shld clarify - do you mean the camera can still tilt side to side such as when you're setting up your shot, or do you mean it just feels loose and wobbly ?

    ok, just looked at my A250 and I can only see a couple of places that could cause the sloppiness, if the side tilt lever is tight. If you take the head off the tripod, there are four Allen bolts (no...

    Re: 13x18 film holder in 5x7 camera?

    what's Stefan said. the holders will work with the camera but while 5x7 film can be used, it won't sit snugly in the holder. so expect uneven rebates and or possible slippage off the rails.

    Re: Multiple Print Washers?

    I have two washers, an 11x14 Summitek, and a 16x20 Kostiner. The Summitek washes 8x10 and sometimes 11x14, otherwise the Kostiner handles 11x14, and occasionally 16x20.

    since we're talking about 8x10, my go to for most photographs is a 300 5.6. I've used a 210 Fuji (inside lettering) for full and waist up portraits when I wanted more breathing room in the photo.

    Re: (possibly) taking the large jump

    I'd suggest looking into 5x7 (am presuming you're shooting 4x5) and making contacts. I find 4x5 too small for contacts(ymmv) but 5x7 (and 8x10 for that matter) is almost a sweet spot.
