  2. Re: Worth fixing a Schneider Kreuznach xenar 210mm in compound shutter

    If you need to see how the lens performs before a CLA you could find a low light subject that let's you use B or T. Or use an ND filter. Naturally this won't help if you normally photograph in...

    Why not just screw a lens hood on your lens? Not perfect but it will help when using a lens with 8x10 coverage on a 4x5. You need 360 degree coverage for ground reflections. A compendium shade is...

  13. Re: 9x12 camera and all the things that come with it

    For enlarging I just use a glass carrier with a black construction paper mask. Works Ok for me. If there is any roll film holder options for your camera you could do color easily that way.
