    Yes, they do… to a certain extent. Some use computers and the internet to facilitate intelligent thought; others clearly use them as a replacement.

    Re: testing spot lightmeter

    I'd suggest shooting B&W film in "normal" circumstances and look at the negatives to see if they appear "normal". For me this works best with general coverage and incident meters. With a spot meter...

    Very nice results, Aidan. Reminds me of a favorite “junk lens” I often use, a 5x7 Gundlach Radar.

    Re: 180mm for Portraiture

    Whatever lens you get, check that there are soft focus filters (softar, soft/fx, or the like) available in that size. For a lot of portraiture, you'll want something to cut the sharpness.

  33. Re: Where should I send my Copal shutters for a CLA?

    I haven’t talked to them in a couple of years and you might want to call them. Steve’s Camera Repair in Culver City, CA did great work for me in the past.
  34. Re: Where should I send my Copal shutters for a CLA?

    Any decent camera repair shop should be able to do the work for you if they are still willing to service mechanical shutters. A routine leaf shutter service is a rather basic skill to a camera tech.
