    Re: 4x10 Photography

    Here in north Florida a cold front is moving in. The sky is that same cobalt blue with few if any clouds. We were walking the dog and saw a bald eagle thermaling above us. No 4x10 camera with me, but...

    Re: Rethinking my 4x5 Field Camera choice

    I have a 4x5 Technika IV, but for wide angle "field" use I prefer the Linhof Bi Kardan. An old camera but well made. I have the 5x7 back. The front has a kardan board that takes the 4x5 Linhof...

  4. Re: Camera confusion: Beginner Puzzles over Chamonix et al

    Back in 1973 when I started in 4x5 photography I got a 1955 Linhof Technika III with one lens the 135 Symmar. I spoiled myself and got a mirror attachent for the back so I wouldn't struggle with a...

    Doppel Anastigmat Symmar f:6.8

    I understand the Schneider-Kreuznach Doppel Anastigmat Symmar f:6.8 is a Dagor copy with 80 degree angle of view. I have three of these:

  6. Re: Which lenses fold up into your field camera? Linhof Tecnika, Horseman, etc. quest

    With my Technika IV both the 120 and 135 lenses fold up into the closed body. Also if I remember correctly both the 90mm and 120mm f/6.8 angulons are small enough to fold up as well.
  7. Re: Which labs still make traditional optical enlargements from 4x5 color negatives?

    Long time ago I shot 4x5 transparencies (E6) and had made Cibachrome prints. Later (10 years ago?) the only option was printing on Fuji print material that was almost as good as Cibachrome. Are there...
  8. Re: Kit recommendations for a complete beginner

    I agree about using a monorail in 4x5 - they are almost given away today. As for lenses the old Symmars are hard to beat for the price. As for pre-WW2 lenses Zeiss Jena are good value and if you can...
  9. Re: How to decide for a set of three lenses for a Linhof Technika IV

    With the Technika IV you have to drop the bed to the lowest setting to use a 90mm or less lens. I had a 65mm SA on one of those special focusing devices - what a pain! The 75mm SA was a good...

    Re: Trying to decide on a 90mm Lens for 4x5

    I thought I "needed" a 90mm for 4x5 but it was hard to use on my old Technika. I had a 90mm f/5.6 Super Angulon that was big and heavy. Now I prefer a slightly longer lens such as the 105mm f/8 Fuji...

  14. Re: Thoughts About Linhof 4x5 Technikardan 45s ?

    Congratulations on this camera, it is quite something. I used to have a "point and shoot" Fotoman with a 121 Super Angulon and a 90 f/5.6 Super angulon (more of a 4x8). I sold these and got a 4x10...
