    Re: 8x10 Camera + Accessories: Advice

    Just about anything will work, but some work much better than others. Any low power magnifier could be pressed into service---more critical is how that gizmo suits your way of working.

    Glad to hear you had a good time with your son! That'll be a special memory to treasure.
  3. Re: Beginner-friendly developer for 8x10 HP5 and Tri-X in 8x10"

    D-76 and ID-11 are pretty basic. I'm not thrilled with the latest D-76 from Alaris though so I switched to Clayton---I'm not sure if Clayton is available in Australia---so you might want to try...

    Re: Filthy Flange - possibilities.

    Make Nachos! Save the juice from the Jalapeno rings and put that flange in the jar. I should be gleaming by the time the nachos are gone;)

    It's drying up pretty quickly on the Western slope however the Eastern side had a brush with the monsoons this week, so I can't say for certain as the skeeter situation depends a lot on standing...

    I'll use a Agfa Ansco with both 4x5 and 5x7 backs. Good 'nuf for what I need.
  9. Re: Camping suggestions on the west coast or western states?

    Sure it's realistic if the State Parks reopen this year. All it takes is time & gas. And the camp grounds have to be open. Most are still closed but who knows what the future holds? As far as...

  14. Re: Camping suggestions on the west coast or western states?

    Dispersed car camp is the way to go if not back packing. Most spurs and passes off of 395 have good spots. Maybe inquire at the Ranger Station in Bridgeport.
  15. Re: Buying large format lenses... (Newby question)

    You can also make your own. Just take careful measurements.
  16. Re: Camping suggestions on the west coast or western states?

    How about a trip up 395? Lots of classic Sierra scenery without the hassle of the National Parks unless you want it. Plenty of dispersed car camping opportunities as well.

    Re: I rode on YARTS!

    Probably not, but check their website.
    If so, you'd have wait a long time between buses.
    For example there are only three buses a day on the Hwy 41 route.

    Re: Light weight 810 system

    Leaving the tripod head at home will lose you some weight.
    Probably my most used lens for hiking is a 240mm G Claron because of it's size, light weight and coverage.

    Which 4x5 lenses do you have? Not many, but some will cover 8x10 adequately with minimal wiggle room, when stopped down

    Analogue photography is slow, it is very slow (and expensive if not). I know to some extent that can be a good thing, as it forces one to slow down and think....
