  1. Re: Wide angle soft or diffuse focus lenses to cover 8x10?

    Thanks Daniel, but I'm lookin for wide angle lenses, say in the range of 180mm -> 250mm
  2. Wide angle soft or diffuse focus lenses to cover 8x10?

    While soft or diffuse "portrait" focal lengths lenses are plentiful, I'm wondering if there are any in wider focal lengths that would cover 8x10.
    Any wide angle lenses that diffuse highlights,...

    Any historians out there who might know which camera was the first to incorporate a bail back system of loading holders?

    Re: Lubricant for Deardorff wood.

    for the wood on wood parts, I use a touch of Howard's Feed n' Wax which is locally available most places. Home Depot has it. It has always worked great for me. Been using it for well over 15 years.

    Re: Toyo 810M vs 810MII visual differences

    The newer model actually has the words "Toyo 810MII" embossed right into the metal on the lower part of the front standard, directly in front of the locking knob. It's not easy to see, as it is black...
  7. Re: Calumet C1 8x10 tight focus. Adjustment? Lubricant?

    Well you were on the right track (no pun intended).
    Although the locking knobs weren't dragging, the three inch plate that they screw into (and grab the rail to lock) was sticking to the rail from...
  8. Re: Calumet C1 8x10 tight focus. Adjustment? Lubricant?

    Cleaned it thoroughly and locking screws are ok. Lubed grooves with white lithium grease but still feels tight, almost grinding. It's as if the wheels (which are thin, like washers) are too tight for...
  9. Calumet C1 8x10 tight focus. Adjustment? Lubricant?

    One of my two Calumet C1 cameras is a tad tough to focus and the action isn't as smooth as the other. Has anyone experience this, and, if so, what did you do to fix the problem? Camera is clean. I...

    Re: Toyo field 810m

    ...I'll add this: I also have a Deardorff V8 and an 8x10 Gandolfi Precision. They're also fantastic cameras and quite beautiful. But I'd always opt for the Toyo when shooting important projects in...

    Re: Toyo field 810m

    I have two 810MII. Best designed back I've ever worked with. Holders glide in. Everything locks down tight. Nothing budges. I use it for field portraits. Silky smooth geared focusing. If you can find...

    Steve, from what I'm reading Frank is no longer doing repairs.
    I trying calling the number I found (540-867-9671) but "mailbox is full".

    Thats good info.
    Thanks Steve.
  16. Re: Ilex Universal No. 5 shutter issue. Stuck in "open" focus mode. Suggestions plea

    Thanks Mark.
    The shutter was CLA'd just a few years back.
    Adam at Grimes is now working only on Copal shutters these days, due to part shortages on Universals.
    He might be able to fix it if it...

    Thank you, John!
    I guess the only real suggestion I can make is to be sure there's a consistency within the series. I'll add also that whatever series you are working on should be coming from the...
  27. Re: Canned-air discharge caused mark on lens. Removal suggestions?

    Ok now THAT'S an interesting idea. The same concept is used to remove a water stain from fine wood furniture. I might try this on the lens with a hair dryer!

    Thank you, Jim. It really is an honor.
    Gear-wise I use a Toyo 810MII. A variety of Ektar lenses, mostly wide field. But also a nice and very tiny 18cm Hugo Meyer, a Dagor design, which covers 8x10,...
  30. Re: LF photo member wins 2018 Lensculture Portrait Series Award

    This is one of my favorites as well, Pere. I used a 14" Ektar.

    Drew, which compressor are you using?
  40. Re: Canned-air discharge caused mark on lens. Removal suggestions?

    Thanks for responding, Pfsor. Yes, I figured it wouldn't cause an effect on the images. But it would be nice to remove, if at all possible, on an otherwise very clean piece of glass : )
