    I did see that and contacted the seller on the same. The previous auction did drive to a close but the seller had a nonpayer.

    Older Deardorff Camera

    Ahhh, the auction sites. Sometimes they do lead to the occasional impulse purchase. What do you think? and any advice for when this comes? Thanks!

    It is a good point Jon about separating the components into two bags. If anyone else has creative suggestions (or even a photo!) please share.

    Lugging a 8x10 Kodak 2D around

    I'd like something to carry around a 8x10 Kodak 2D. I'd need to carry it a quarter mile or so. A large tote bag appeals to me, but I worry that the camera pieces (such as the extension board) will...

    Re: 5x7 versus 8x10

    Cost is not the reason for x-ray film. I simply want to experiment. The good news is I have a new camera coming. It is the venerable Kodak 2D 8x10!

    5x7 versus 8x10

    If you were going to experiment with X-ray film and light sensitive paper, which format would you go with? 5x7 or 8x10? For example, based on availability of these types of film for the two formats...

  32. Lens focal length versus magnification - in an indoor setting

    I've heard that you have to take the focal length of a lens and times it by two to reach a 1:1 magnification. So I gather a 90mm lens would need 180mm bellows length. In terms of varying focal...
