  1. Re: I am beyond disappointed.

    I have no problem with threads where the discussion gets heated or impassioned or even "boils over." Personal attacks is where I would draw the line, not disagreements about ideology.

  3. Re: dealing with medium format technical cameras here in the Forum

    Perhaps a sheet film forum, then?

  5. Re: dealing with medium format technical cameras here in the Forum

    Personally, I'd prefer this place to be a view camera forum, which would include the cameras Paul is talking about but ecxlude DSLRs.

    But that dead horse has sailed.

    Iris clamp / universal lens mount. Not having to make/buy lens boards for all those vintage flange-less barrel lenses is a blessing.

    I've always found this Steichen image to be visually striking despite--or beacuse of?--the fact that the background is in focus and subject isn't, not to mention the cropped head and torso.

    Re: Favorite Lenses for shallow DOF (4x5)

    I'm partial to my 6" and 6.5" Cinephor projection Petzvals for 4x5 use, both around f/2.8. One is coated and one isn't. They were dirt cheap, too. Why do I like them? I just like the look, I guess.
