    Re: Linhof Master Technika how much ?

    Camera alone, in excellent cosmetic and working condition, should go for about $2,000. I can't tell enough about the other stuff is to speculate on its value.

    Re: Enlarging Easel what is the best

    Salt Hill, if you can find one and if by best you mean sturdy, precise, solid, well-built, etc. But there are others that do just fine and that are a lot easier to find.

    Re: A good read......"Art and Fear"

    Bruce Barnbaum handed out a copy of "Art And Fear" to each of the participants in one of his workshops some years ago. Excellent book.
  4. Re: I'm going to stop using a 4x5 BTZS focusing "tube" and get a dark cloth. Suggesti

    Yes, you have to remove it to get the holder in the camera after focusing and composing. Putting it on to compose and focus, then removing it to insert the holder, wasn't a problem for me but if...
  5. Re: Some film holders are missing the "L" locks, can I insert some?

    All of my holders had those "L" things but I never bothered using them for the reason you mentioned - too many of them were loose and rotated away from the top of the dark slide. I also didn't use...

    Don't sell or throw away your BTZS hood. I started out in LF photography with a classic "blanket" dark cloth bought from Zone VI Studios I think. Heavy, hot, inconvenient to take on and off then...

    Toyo boards are a different size than Linhof boards so I doubt your Linhof recessed board would work on your Ebony without an adapter. I had an Ebony 45Te and used my Linhof boards with it. They...

    Re: Shift Movement - 35mm Equivalent

    Yes, you're correct. 10mm of shift using 33mm film would be about 27% of the film in the long dimension. To get 27% of 4x5 film in the long dimension would require 33.75mm of shift. The focal length...
