    Re: Suggestions for LF field camera

    I think the problem is that still life/macro and landscape are a bit at odds with each other. The first one wants a heavy stable monorail the second one a light wood foldable camera (other options...
  2. Re: Any telephoto (360mm or above) recommendations for a 4x5 (TK45S)?

    I find the Fuji 400mm a very good lens, and being a tele your below extension for infinity would be 10.4Ē which means a pretty stable configuration in the open. Itís also quite cheap relatively...
  3. Re: Any telephoto (360mm or above) recommendations for a 4x5 (TK45S)?

    I think the natural step would be to go to at least 400 or 450mm. I see no point in 360mm if you already have 300mm.

    The Fuji T 400mm (relative cheap, not too heavy) or the Nikkor M 450mm (more...

    Re: Chamonix Whole Plate Camera!

    Plenty of time to jump to 8x10, ULF, get into carbon printing and all those fun things... even WP if you really wanted ;-)

    Re: Chamonix Whole Plate Camera!

    I hope yíall realize ours is a race against time. The WP crew are just slightly ahead of the 8x10 folks, somewhat more so than the 4x5 folks, and about on par with the ULF folks. Ok maybe itís not...

    Re: Tripods in lightning storms?

    Taking shots of lighting is something I will definitely use my 35mm gear for. Iíll bring the 200-500mm zoom and do it from a safer distance (nothing is 100% safe). They also sell you this trigger...

  14. Re: Disastrous Consequences (solved: fog with Intrepid lensboard)

    I tend to agree that we're beating a dead horse and this thread should now be closed by the moderators.
  15. Re: Disastrous Consequences (solved: fog with Intrepid lensboard)

    Sometimes we just read too fast. He wrote "Their aluminum prices are twice that for the same thickness in aluminum sheet, and around $15 /sq. ft. for aluminum plate."
    So he's comparing 3 items: FR4,...
  16. Disastrous Consequences (solved: fog with Intrepid lensboard)

    Since you can at least get 4 boards from one square foot sheet, the cost difference is either $2.67 in FR4 or $5.35 in aluminum sheet or $3.75 for plate. None of that has a strong bearing on the...
  17. Re: Disastrous Consequences (solved: fog with Intrepid lensboard)

    Go to eBay and buy a CNC aluminum lens board from Luland for like $13.99 free shipping.
    No issues, and will last forever.
  18. Re: Disasterous Consequences

  26. Any telephoto (360mm or above) recommendations for a 4x5 (TK45S)?

    Weíre not really comparing apples to apples here. The Fuji C is not a tele and will require that much in bellow extension. The Nikkor at 500 will require about 350mm bellow extension for infinity...
  27. Any telephoto (360mm or above) recommendations for a 4x5 (TK45S)?

    Any experience with the tele Congoís? Thereís 300, 400, and 500mm that are usually quite economical. I wonder how theyíd compare to a tele Arton or a Fuji 400mm T in optical quality?

    3D printed can also be sometimes...
