    Re: Lens questions from a new 4x5 shooter

    Exactly, or a 90mm if you want the standard wide.

    PS: shutter releases will be mostly standard between shutters. Some exceptions but none you need to worry about at the moment. Typical 90mm and a...
  2. Re: Thoughts About Nikkor SW 75mm F4.5 on Linhof Master Technika?

    Unlike a Crown / Speed Graphic, you can't mount a lens "in between" the rails inside the camera and on the bed. Therefore, if a lens is just long enough to need to be in that gap, it's a problem -...
  3. Re: Thoughts About Nikkor SW 75mm F4.5 on Linhof Master Technika?

    The biggest annoyance with the Master Technika is using wide angles. The newer Linhof method is to use helicals on wide angles to focus while the front standard is all the way back. This is more...

    Re: Lens questions from a new 4x5 shooter

    Will you need a shutter faster than 1/200? Well most landscapes are shot at f/22 and beyond, and the fastest film available is 400 speed. Quiz time - at sunny-16 and shot at f/22 on 400-speed film,...

    Re: Infinity or Hyper Focal?

    The cam is cut for specific lenses. There are only a few folks who do this. Check eBay though - you can find lenses with cams for sale occasionally.

    If your friend has a Speed Graphic, check with him about what lens it has and if the rangefinder is calibrated. Could be ready to shoot right now with the ease of RF focusing.

    Re: Infinity or Hyper Focal?

    I don't know what camera you are using but I would set it up at infinity or close to it, and then mark different focus ranges somehow, depending on how your camera focuses. Many Crown Graphics have...

  9. Re: Alternative to the Schneider Xenotar 150mm F2.8 for 4x5?

    Read the previous posts about radiation.

    It is not an issue for any reasonable usage. Don't grind it up and eat it, and don't store it under your pillow, otherwise it's fine.

  11. Re: Has there ever been a retrofocus wide that covers 4x5/9x12 or larger?

    Komura Super-W 90mm f/6.3 apparently has a FFD of about 130mm. Oren, what is the minimum FFD on the 9x12 or 4x5 Graflex SLRs? I remember the "standard" lens on one of those was a 190mm, so I assume...
  12. Re: Has there ever been a retrofocus wide that covers 4x5/9x12 or larger?

    The Komura 75mm and 90mm f/6.3 lenses were retrofocus right?

    75mm Biogon is also retrofocus to an extent. And really any modern wide-angle has an infinity focus of slightly more than its focal...

    Re: DOF on 8x10 vs. 4x5?

    Doremus is correct.

    If you are talking about a 4x5 shot with a 120mm lens at f/45 and on 8x10 with a 240mm lens at f/45, enlarged to the same size, no they will not have the same depth of field....

  19. Re: Clarence John Laughlin - Father of American Surrealism

    Thanks, I see Abe is cheaper on average. I will need to remember that. I got a steal on the Ghosts book though it seems ($12). I guess a missing dust jacket kills value.

    Re: Lens Not Focusing, What is the Cause?

    Just to be sure, I will mention that to focus closer, you must extend the bellows out. If 130mm extension gives you infinity focus, 260mm would give you a "1:1" magnification (life-size). Your...

    Re: Lens Not Focusing, What is the Cause?

    If you've used a 135mm lens, your 120mm should work with roughly 15mm less extension for infinity focusing.

    Your rear element suspicion is probably correct. Shims wouldn't make that much of a...
