    Re: How about some infrared images

    nice aerochrome. I have a grafmatic loaded up with 6 sheets of it, may shoot them this week up in the mountains.

    hi Laurent -

    nicely done. Images of the cams have been posted before. I will see if I can find some copies of them to post. The lensboard should really have a ring on the back as a light trap /...
  3. Re: Lightweight 4x5 Rangefinder camera build (Polaroid Mod)

    I shoot the saber handheld all the time with 100-speed film. f/11 - f/16 @ 1/125 or 1/60 is easily doable in good light.

    hi Laurent -

    those are nice fabrications, whomever made those was doing some nice work. If you can find the original piece, that will be your best bet, since it allows all film holders to fit...
  6. Re: Cambo TWR 54 - 4x5 Twin Lens Reflex (like Gowlandflex) Question...

    The original film holder piece is a spring-loaded clamp that can allow basically any holder to fit, including grafmatics. Sadly, they are not easy to come by, you would likely have to fabricate...

  8. Re: Performance Between Apo Symmar and Apo Symmar-L?

    Actually if you extract the images and overlay them (from the 150mm) you see that the original APo Symmar is better nearly everywhere than the L verison, ironically particularly in the corners, at...

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    I have a DLC2, it's a superb camera. I should use it more than I do. Very well made. That said, with any camera that has movements, there's always the possibility for them to be off somewhat.

    Re: 7 1/2 inch Kodak Ektar F4.5 question

    If this is the 190mm ektar that came on the Graflex RB Super D, it's a great lens. As mentioned 8x10 might work close up, but it's hard to say. This lens is every bit the same quality as the...

    the Nikkor 150 SW is a great choice, almost certainly the best option in that coverage range and focal length.

    a 50mm lens for a 35mm SLR can be very cheap and well built, and is about an 8-10x loupe, that's what I use.

    pictures would help. I have a 45-vxl but haven't had trouble with the elevation lock. I rarely lock it anyway, it generally stays put (motorized elevation with counterweighting, I recall).
