  1. Re: Is it a linear progression between 90mm and 150mm?

    120 or 125mm is a perfectly fine focal length, if it suits you, but really the only way to know is to try it. When I started up with LF, I got a Tachihara 4x5 and a Schneider 120/5.6 APO-Symmar. I've...
  2. Re: Epson 4990 Scanner & Mac Catalina Driver

    Have you tried VueScan? It will probably work just fine, and you can test it out for free. If you buy it, it's lifetime, no subscriptions or re-purchases. I have it to keep my Nikon Coolscan 9000...
  3. Re: Epson 4990 Scanner & Mac Catalina Driver

    Epson Scan 2 will be in a folder called "Epson Software" in your applications folder, or it least it should be if the software installed properly.
  4. Re: Best 75mm / 90mm lens?......totally kidding, but not really...read on pls

    Long ago, I shot Ektachrome E100VS with the 80/4.5 SSXL and, looking over those scans, I do see a bit of corner vignetting. It doesn't bother me, but, of course, if it bothers someone, they'd need...
  5. Re: Best 75mm / 90mm lens?......totally kidding, but not really...read on pls

    The Schneider 80/4.5 SSXL is a modern lens, takes 67mm filters, isnít huge, and has a 211mm image circle @ f/22. I bought mine new many years ago, so I donít know if the used ones are in your price...

    Re: What's your Go To LF body & lens?

    Although there are some who own very many cameras, I'd imagine most LF shooters own just one. In my case, although I have two TravelWide cameras (one set up with the 90, one previously set up with a...
  7. Re: "Camera Work" A Photographic Quarterly. Online
