    Re: Hole Saw For Commercial Ektar Lens

    I simply shoot a hole in my boards. 20 or 12 Gauge works for most lenses.

    Re: Help Identifying Brass Lens

    I believe Hyatt's "Rival" lens was advertised as a "symmetrical" or RR. Their petzval was the "Special Portrait" lens.

    Re: Dallmeyer 8X10 Rapid Rectilinear

    I've used one for years for wetplate. They're a good, sharp lens. Not much wild character (read: aberrations).

    Or simply shoot a soft focus, wide open. The softness makes a "zone of Kindafocus". Verito on 5x7:
