  1. Optimum Range: Goerz 14" Red Dot Artar

    What's the optimum range of a Goerz Red Dot Artar 14" lens? These lenses are known to be excellent at closer distances. But, how close?

    Put another way, at what distance do images from an RD...

    Re: Agitation and highlight density

    With too little agitation for HP5 (30 seconds each minute), I had problems with mottled negatives. I increased agitation to 30 seconds at the beginning, and then 10 seconds each minute thereafter. ...

    Re: exposure with filter and spotmeter

    Respectifully, I tend to be skeptical about these kinds of manufacturers' statements. For one thing, it's out of context, since it refers to conventional exposure determination, which is...

    Re: New here and looking for lens advice

    Don't exactly recall, but isn't the 210mm HD Caltar a Tessar?

    If so, it has an adequate, though not a generous, image circle.

    Here's a snip from another EBay listing for a 300mm HR Caltar...
  7. Re: Is the obsession with analogue gearing an obstacle to art?

    More likely, they leave shaking their head.

    I don't think it's an obstacle to black and white photographic art; but, it sure is for color, for multiple reasons.

    Color film has gone sky high. ...

    Re: Red Bellow vs Black Bellow

    Red might also be an advantage if you photograph landscapes during hunting season. I would also avoid wearing anything that was brown. And definitely, no fur coats.

  11. Re: About Joe Cornish and the scope of the Large Format Photography Forum

    There was a time years and years ago when no commercialization was permitted on this forum, and that included selling equipment, LF or otherwise. So, rules can change.

  26. Re: Assessing film speed and development time without a darkroom.

    For standard black and white film like Tri-X, HP5, or TMax 400, you're pretty safe in using a speed that's half the manufacture's recommended ASA. (e.g., 200ASA for 400ASA film, 60ASA for 125ASA...
