    Well, whenever I’ve “abandon a shot” it was because despite all hope and prior belief, the light wasn’t perfect, the composition looked great in my mind but not on the GG, and the stars weren’t...

    Doesn’t your camera have focusing scales on the bed? That’s the fast way: estimate subject distance, set focus using the bed scale, and shoot.

    Yup. Some operate on more of a shoe-string. But no matter... Involvement in standards development requires a big investment. Each SDO and each standards working group has its own personality.

    Re: Moved?

    It possibly has to do with this forum’s definition of ‘large format’. They define by the negative size rather than the camera used or final print size.

  23. Re: Lubricant for Grafic RH/20 roll film holder

    Much more affordable, easier to source, and the stuff is great for that type of application. I’ve used the WD-40 version and FinisLine, which is at every bike shop it seems.
  24. Re: Lubricant for Grafic RH/20 roll film holder

    Personally, I’ve never lubricated the rollers on my roll film holders. I’ll have to check them and see if the need it. I’ll probably substitute a liquid Teflon dry lube though.
