    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Nice shot Jerry, colors, tilts. Good scanning and processing. I guess colour perfect helps get them right.
  2. Re: Is it a linear progression between 90mm and 150mm?

    Obviously, the different formats make comparison difficult. How do you compare 4x5 large format to 3:2 full-frame 35mm or 6x7 or 6x6 on 120 film? Here a chart that gives angles of view...
  3. Poll: Re: What's your #1 anxiety about LF (in your personal life)?

    At 75, I started 4x5 LF this year and my back is giving out. My heavy medium format kit isn't helping the situation either.
  4. Re: Best 75mm / 90mm lens?......totally kidding, but not really...read on pls

    Is it true with old LF lenses (Nikkor, Rodenstock, Fuji, and Schneider) that the sharper more expensive ones are better wide open? But once you start to stop down, they're all about the same?
  5. Re: AA's "Holy Grail" Sells for $6.4 Million

    Some pictures are nicer than others. The Clearing Storm, even if there are more copies of them, that went for over $600K, is a lot nicer than many of the more mundane pictures that went for $20K.
  6. Re: Is it a linear progression between 90mm and 150mm?

    Here's a handy calculator to figure out the various angles of views for different lenses on different formats.

  7. Re: Brexit trade (custom) treaty - and Global Shipping Program (for EU trades)

    In the US, even if you take possession, you don't pay sales tax if the product is resold.
    The distributor just furnishes a "resale certificate" so the sales tax is waived. So for example, if a New...

    My wife I vacationed in the Caribbean Islands. We had the store where we bought something ship it back to our home in NYC because it was too large to carry with us on the plane. I thought nothing...
  10. Re: Brexit trade (custom) treaty - and Global Shipping Program (for EU trades)

    That's true. If a state has a sales tax on a particular good, they must charge that whether the goods are manufactured within that state or imported from another state or foreign country. That's to...
  11. Re: Brexit trade (custom) treaty - and Global Shipping Program (for EU trades)

    Curious. Why is there a VAT add on with a private item when importing into the EU now when there wasn't for private items before. Doesn't VAT have to do with original sales and manufacturing?
  12. Re: Brexit trade (custom) treaty - and Global Shipping Program (for EU trades)

    Isn't that the same as if you bought a used camera privately from me in the US? After all, the UK is like the US or any other non-European country now. They're not in the EU.
  13. Re: Brexit trade (custom) treaty - and Global Shipping Program (for EU trades)

    Ron, what difference would that make? Weren't the VAT taxes included when they were a member? Aren't the final prices now the same?
  14. Re: Best 75mm / 90mm lens?......totally kidding, but not really...read on pls

    1) Why don't 35mm lenses have that falloff? Why are their designs different?
    2) If it's a simple formula, why do different people say the falloff varies? There seem to be arguments on this point. ...
  15. Re: Best 75mm / 90mm lens?......totally kidding, but not really...read on pls

    Couldn't someone actually measure this by shooting at a white wall? Then measuring the intensity of the scan by sampling different areas of the image to see the falloff in stops?

    Re: Chamonix vs. Xxxxx?

    So what your suggesting is that I use reverse vignetting in Lightroom to lighten the darker edges caused by falloff? Are there any downsides in processing this way? Is there a way to determine an...

    Yes, I noticed that. But I usually don't vignette my shots deliberately. But since it was there anyway, I decided to use the effect. But you're right. That's why I haven't bought a CF for the...

    A Chamonix in 4x5 is $1300 or so, much less than other new cameras.

    Re: Chamonix vs. Xxxxx?

    The MicroOrbix sounds like asymmetrical tilting which I have on the rear standard of my Chamonix 45H-1. Unfortunately, there are no gears. So the tilt adjustment is a little rougher.
