    Re: Looking for a Pittsburgh connection

    I'm in SWPA - specifically in Westmoreland County about 10 minutes from New Stanton. Since Pittsburgh Filmmakers closed in 2019, I don't know if there's much around that's non-digital. There are...
  2. Re: quality problem with printfile negative pages

    Re: Chamonix vs. Xxxxx?

    Another vote for the Chamonix. I have the 4x5 N-1, purchased in 2013. I don't shoot as often as I wish, but it's easy to pack into a bag that I can haul through the woods (for reference, I'm 5'5" and...

    Re: Lens board too thin

    I'll try to take some pics to show, but I don't think there is a spacer ring (so that's probably part of it). While there is an anti-rotation pin, that isn't what's blocking the board. If the board...

    Lens board too thin

    Hi all. I bought a 300mm lens which I originally intended to use with my Chamonix, but then decided to use it on a 5x7. I bought a lens board that fits the camera fine and fits the Copal 3 shutter...

  20. Re: Weird, Odd, and Unlikely Lenses - Recommendations Please

    I have one lower section with lens from a pair of binoculars glued to a lens board. It's only sharp-ish in the middle, but looks kinda cool sometimes (and sometimes it's just bad).

    Re: Advice on possible light leak issue.

    As Sanford posted, this is how Polaroid film looks when it's old. The pod isn't breaking evenly so the chemicals aren't spreading evenly.

    +1. Elements can be purchased on the App Store if your MBP has a recent enough OS. It's sometimes on sale around $30-$50. It does pretty everything the older versions of full PS could do.
