    Re: Epson 4990 vs Nikon D850?

    It's risky to extrapolate from one's own ability/attitude with respect to disbursement of financial resources, discretionary or otherwise, to others' positions in those respects. I'd wager your...

    Re: 5x7 holder depth to septum

    Given all that research, John, and since you as well as Bill Maxwell are still around and kicking, how about finally putting your L-45A into production? I'd be one definite customer. :)

    Re: How Many LF Formats Do You Use/Own?

    Why "uh oh" John? That's exactly how this forum officially defines large format. Anything smaller is by site rule relegated to The Lounge. :)

    I have several dozen 5x7 holders, a mix of Lisco and Fidelity Deluxe, all purchased new. Their depths to septums range from 0.212" to 0.236" when measured using a flat-ground piece of bar stock and...

    Incorrect. It has nothing to do with Foma. Coated by Inoviscoat (or whatever Inoviscoat is operating as today) and packaged elsewhere, likely by HARMAN.

    It wasn't a "craze." It was and is an aesthetic. It didn't "die out" any more than it became universal.
