    Re: Going Long on 5x7

    Very cool, I'll look for the Nikkor set at some point. Seems like a good investment if I can get 720 on both my 8x10 and 5x7.

    Going Long on 5x7

    To buttress the going wide post, I'm interested in a telephoto design for my 5x7 Chamonix. I've never used the T type lenses. Are there any that you can particularly recommend? I have a 300mm 5.6...

    Re: Gregory Crewdson's 'An Eclipse of Moths'

    I saw a BTS shot from one of the images. They were doing tethered capture. I think they were using a tech camera of some kind. One of the prints was made by Acorn Editions and a guy who runs an...

    Some bad HDR in those new pieces. Personally I think he should have stuck with large format.
  5. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    A 105 will also require a larger, heavy duty copy stand. The 70 makes the working distance a little easier, especially as the format gets big.

    I upgraded to a heavy duty Besler copy stand, and...

    I just scanned a bunch of these using my S1R set up with pixel shift. Correct me if I'm wrong but it sure seemed to me like these were dupes from some other original photographic process? Even for...

    After a ton of 'fussing', I have everything level and secure.

    Next step will be to use the alignment tool.

    If I could fully wall mount it I might be able to get it a little more even but the problem is, it's just me. Once it's on the wall it's extremely difficult to feed in the counterweights. My...

    I think that with the modification those little screws don't have much of an effect. I will try with shims.

    Zone VI Alignment Tips!

    I am setting up my Zone VI (modified to 8x10) enlarger.

    Any tips and tricks for getting perfect alignment? I'm planning to use a Versalab alignment tool but before I get to that step I was...
  11. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    The Sony file appears to have much better definition of fine details, but yes it is close. Only very large prints would likely show this difference. Still, I think there is just an advantage to...
  12. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Exotic may be the wrong word but they do require a bellows focusing rig and generally more 'fussing'. In the test I saw the 75 performed very well in it's 1:1 sweet spot but fell off at other...
  13. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Even if the A7xxxxx produces better scans, if you're more likely to use and enjoy the Fuji then you should factor that in. Just depends on where your priorities are. The 50R will make 50mp scans...
  14. Re: DSLR scanning with Kaiser Slimlite Plano 5000K question

    You just need a stable rig for longer shutter speeds. Also if you're using a DSLR make sure you're using something like 'electronic first curtain' shutter (that's what Nikon calls it). If it's...

    Re: Diffusion v Condenser v LED

    The Heiland is great. I have one in my LPL and I really can't complain. It's the brightest enlarger I've used by far (requiring an ND in some cases). They are a lot of money however. If you have...

    I had one for a while and eventually swapped it for the Heiland Splitgrade. It's a very nice piece of equipment but the calibration process was a little labor intensive. Figure one whole night of...

    Copal 3 Shutters on Chamonix 57N

    Thanks all! Found what I was looking for.

    Scored a Calumet 300/5.6 II-N from KEH for a song this weekend. That Sironar-N coverage is so great.

    Also that 1912 catalog is rad.
