  1. Re: Now e-Bay wants my SSN and bank account info . . .???

    As the astute Lennie Pike (aka Jonathan Winters) observed in the 1963 classic movie It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World; “Even businessmen, who rob and cheat and steal from people everyday, even they...

    Wonderful image Robert. I’ve always enjoyed your ‘shadowscapes’ and admired your exceptional capacity to see these projected forms and resulting compositions. Congratulations on your Guggenheim...
  3. Wollensak 162mm f4.5 Raptar Lens - Image Circle?

    I recently acquired an absolute mint Wollensak 162mm f4.5 Raptar lens in Rapax shutter. I'm trying to determine the image circle at f4.5 and say f/16 or f/22. I will be using it with my 4x5...

    Re: Help me choose 4x5 camera to buy in 2022

    Many years ago a Wista SP was my first LF camera. After a hiatus from all photography, that included selling my Wista, I got back into LF and purchased an Arca-Swiss F Metric Field w/Micro Orbix...
  6. Re: "Poll" Question: Do you use a footswitch for your enlarger?

    When I was a kid, sixty years ago, I spent lots of time with my father in his darkroom - he was a professional. He obsessed over making tack sharp prints and always worried about inducing vibration...

    Re: Andrea Modica New Book/Exhibition

    It appears she uses a Phillips 8x10? Are all of her platinum-palladium images made as 8x10 contact prints? I noted on her website that some gelatin silver prints were also available. I love 8x10...

    Re: K.B. Canham Users - 4x5/5x7 Wood Camera

    The wooden 4x5 camera, the T645, sells for $3275.00. The 5x7 back is $570.00. Neither the 4x5 or 5x7 come...

    I'm considering adding a Canham 4x5/5x7 wood camera to my quiver. I have a couple of questions:

    I was communicating with Carol earlier today via email. She was prompt and helpful in her responses. I just got back from shipping her one of my Copal shutters that needs some of Flutot's TLC/CLAC.

    Re: Do you get sentimental about your lenses?

    A couple of years ago, I added a Fujinon A 240mm f9 lens to my 4x5 kit. Until that time, all my lenses were Nikkor. In short order, the 240/9 held "favored lens" status in my quiver. Do I get...

  16. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    The gap between my 58mm SAXL front element and a filter is uncomfortably thin. The 67/77 step up ring gives me reasonable separation.
  17. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    All my filters are 77mm. I have a variety of lenses and use step up rings just as you describe. From my viewpoint, it’s a cost effective way to ensure that I have the finest filters on all my lenses....
  18. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    Something I'm seriously considering Bernice. There are certainly opportunities for me to trim other "fat" from my 4x5 kit when I'm going for "a good stretch of the legs".
  19. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    Your comment has me thinking further about your 125/5.6 Fujinon recommendation. Which version do you have? The "NW" or "CM-W"? Confusing to me is that apparently the "NW" is only labeled on the...

    Re: How about some infrared images

    I love the motion in the wild barley (?). That kind of thing used to drive me nuts when making photographs in the desert and the creosote bushes wouldn’t stay motionless. Now I think it’s great and...
  21. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    It occurs to me that since I credit Messrs. Gittings with my Nikkor SW 120/8 addition, I should send him the bill for my next back surgery ;)

    My 4x5 weapon of choice is an Arca-Swiss F -metric...
  22. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    With all due respect, I never said I "needed" all the coverage that I get from the Nikkor SW 120/8. And yes, there are less robust lenses that would give sufficient coverage for my 4x5. But in my...
  23. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    Excuse my tardy reply. I initially became interested in the Nikkor-SW 120/8 when, on this forum, Kirk Gittings gave it a definitive thumbs-up. I'm an admirer of Kirk's work and value his opinion(s)....

  26. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    Well said Mark. This isn't an easy decision for me. I've burned a ton of sheet film with the Nikkor 120/8 SW. Lots of satisfying images. I'm actually on my second copy. My first was tragically...
  27. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    Thank you for the comparison photo Bernice. No doubt, the 110mm SSXL wins the diminutive contest.
  28. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    Bruce - I was raised by a professional photographer that valued razor sharp and contrasty negatives - it is embedded in my DNA. My Nikkor SW 120/8 does a terrific job with respect to sharpness and...
  29. Re: Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8

    Your suggestion is my ultimate strategum. The Nikkor SW 120/8 will be with me always. But two back surgeries have me evaluating slender substitutes for those times when avant-garde minimalism rules...
  30. Schneider Super-Symmar XL 110mm f5.6 v. Nikon Nikkor-SW 120mm f8
