    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Corran, I don't do color work anymore, but regarding b&w I do recall AA suggesting the use of a #47 (C5) deep blue filter to enhance the 3D effect of distant bluish haze. But the rather large filter...
  2. Re: Strange marks on re-washed negative that won’t come out?

  5. Re: Distance optimization for '60s-vintage Super Angulons and Symmars?

    Thanks for the links via "the list." I found what I needed to know in the Symmar Brochure 1962, already in English. Here is a .png that isolates the info.
