    Re: November Portraits

    Wonderful!
  2. Re: Can anyone recommend a sturdy tall carbon fiber tripod and ball head/pan-tilt hea

    Arca Swiss d4.

    Very smooth, very stable, very precise.

    And very pricey.

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    I'd say the previous one is better, or something in between if you want a more dramatic look. I think this is too dark and all the shadows lack any detail whatsoever.

  5. Re: Can anyone recommend a sturdy tall carbon fiber tripod and ball head/pan-tilt hea

    Just to be the odd man out, I did the same search for a tripod here and elsewhere, for similar cameras (Arca Swiss 4x5 and Rolleiflex 6008i) and ended up with a Novoflex Triopod. It's among the...

    Re: Best cheap large format negative scanner

    One last point to the OP, regardless of what you get, you can always sell it when the project is done, probably for about what you bought it for. So you might view it as a temporary expenditure.

    Re: B's 4x5 reel, experiences?

    I've not used the B's reels, but would not want to use any reel or system that exposed the major part of the image surface to another surface like that, it seems like a really risky design.

  13. Re: Light Meter for Large Format (4x5) Landscape Photography

    As I said, sometimes I have to get creative to find a spot that fits in the 5 degree circle. Sometimes I have to extrapolate, find something closer or out of frame that's a similar value, or measure...
  14. Re: Light Meter for Large Format (4x5) Landscape Photography

    Hi Alan,

    It attaches to the meter's head and has a viewfinder with a circle demarcating the 5 degree zone. Point and click, I use it as if it were a 1 degree meter, only that due to the larger...
  15. Re: Light Meter for Large Format (4x5) Landscape Photography

    I have 2 meters, both bought new.

    A Gossen Variosix-F that I've probably had for 20 years, with the 5 degree spot attachment (wish it did 1 degree, but oh well) has been my main meter through...

    How does rear tilt affect front tilt?

    I’m out in the field (on the camping trip mentioned in another thread) and wondered how using rear tilt to accentuate different elements of a composition affects front tilt and getting the plane of...
  22. Re: Camping suggestions on the west coast or western states?

    Probably won't do all of that in a single week. Looks like it will be up the 395 and back down the 395, there are enough places to see and things to do. Was still considering a detour to see the...
  23. Re: Camping suggestions on the west coast or western states?

    Hi Drew,

    as I mentioned earlier, this is still in the planning phase. If it's super crowded, we'll go elsewhere, and nothing is finalized yet.

    John,

    since you seem to have become the unofficial tour guide for CA, I've since revised my plan.

  25. Re: Camping suggestions on the west coast or western states?

    Thanks for all the replies so far!

    I think John's suggestion of driving up 365 makes a lot of sense, we can find spots on the way, or do day trips to more popular spots, unless there are a bunch...

    Re: Tripod recommendation for 4X5 studio camera

    In the studio - big, heavy and wheeled.

    For heads, I can't suggest any pan/tilt head, being out in the field. I use an Arca Swiss d4 that's pretty nice. Precise, ergonomic, compact.
