    Re: New here and looking for lens advice

    I just confirmed that my Chamonix 45H-1 is built so that the order is the lens, ground glass with grain side toward the lens, Fresnel, then your eye. If I use a loupe with a fixed focal plane, I'm...

    Re: New here and looking for lens advice

    So do you need an adjustable loupe? Most fixed loupes focus on the surface the loupe sits on which is not the grain side of the GG. Right?

    So if my camera uses a GG and fresnel lens, do I need a loupe that adjusts the focal point?

    Your experience raises an interesting point. You have to see the actual print you want to buy before buying it. If you order over the web, the version you get might not be to your liking.

  21. Re: Which first Rear Movement and Asymmetrical Tilt Chamonix 45F2

    Yes that;s correct.

    Also, it may be easier to use the iterative front tilt method if the asymmetrical lines don't line up with the focus points you're interested in. That saves the time to raise...

    Respectfully, I checked the focus after doing the tilt and it didn't move. No refocusing was necessary on my Chamonix 45H-1. Which asymmetrical camera did you try that required refocusing?

    Mark, That's not correct. No secondary focusing has to be done with asymmetrical tilts. That's the whole point of them.

    Consider filters. If you use them or will, you want to get filters for the largest size lens. Then use an adapter to fit the filter on the smaller-sized required lenses.
