    Re: Large Format Shells

    Something I did on a recent rainy day. It was lit using a fiber-optic illuminator about a foot away, which acted like a point source. This was my favorite of several "poses".

    Re: 300mm lens 4x5" landscape

    Any 300mm f/5.6 lens will be in a Copal 3 or comparable shutter so it will be big and heavy.

    Re: new (and first) 4x5 camera

    The Intrepid has a lot going for it as a first camera. It's inexpensive, decently made, and as you're in Europe support isn't that far away. If you buy a new one you'll get the latest version with...

    Re: 20x24 enlarger easel options

    I have a straight 20x24 Speed EZ-EL but find it difficult to use given the limitations of my working space. The paper has to go in from a short side; I've got walls in the way and it's too easy to...

    Re: 20x24 enlarger easel options

    Printing a 20x24 in my micro-darkroom is a challenge as the space under my enlarger isn't wide enough to accommodate any commercially-made easel I know of, and it can't be made wider. A Saunders...

    Re: orthochromatic film?

    And if you have a supply of Ortho film you can also use it for unsharp masks. It allows you to work under a dim red safelight, much easier (for me, at least) than doing it all by feel in total...

    Re: 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 cameras?

    That yatsugiri-wide format is pretty cool. The image-area dimensions would be very close to the golden ratio (if you're into that sort of thing). In that regard it's very close to 7x11 but the...

    Monty, one thing you may need to take into account in your studio design is your latitude. I suspect the split between roof-based and side-based windows will be very different in North Carolina and...

    Richard, in the McMaster-Carr catalog it says only that some of the footswitches have "quick connects" but it doesn't say what kind. Do you recall if the parts Zone VI used specifically said RJ-11?

  17. Re: Longest focal length telephoto lens with bellows draw under 300 mm

    I forgot to mention the Congo (Osaka) 400mm f/8. Compared to the Fujinon, it's about the same size, has a slightly shorter flange focal length, and weighs 150gm (almost 6oz) less. Coverage is less...
  18. Re: Longest focal length telephoto lens with bellows draw under 300 mm

    The 500mm f/9.5 Tele-Congo has a 287mm flange focal length according to my notes, which would give you a closest focus of around 20 feet or so without an extended lens board. It just covers 4x5...
  19. Re: Print Washers, again. Interested in the 'tray type'.

    It's probably not the kind of plumbed tray you're considering, but I used to use a Kostiner flat tray washer. It has little jets all around and is a bit over 16x20 inside. There's no way to...

    Re: Favorite Current 8x10 B&W Film?

    Consider TMAX400 (TMY) if you intend to do any alt-process printing that requires UV exposure. Because it has no UV-blocking your print exposures will be much shorter than with other films. Yes,...

    Not all 210mm f/9 Graphic Kowa cells will fit a Copal 1. I have a recollection that some versions don't allow removal of one of the cells (rear, I think, but I'm not sure). And I could be wrong. ...
