  1. Re: Sinar P2 part identification ( teeth that enable lateral movements )

    Thanks for this
  2. Sinar P2 part identification ( teeth that enable lateral movements )

    Not sure how to describe these. Basically the teeth that let the camera move each standard from left to right. They are broken in my camera or at least a section of them are and Id like to replace...
  3. I own a Sinar P2 4x5. What would I need to convert to 8x10?

    Obviously an 8x10 ground glass and frame. Id also need 8x10 bellows and holders and a lens.

    But what else? Does a Sinar P2 rear standard accommodate both 4x5 and 8x10? Im assuming it does...

    Re: How do you scan 4x5 with a DSLR?

    I attach my DSLR to the rear standard of my Sinar and then use clamps and a light table with a negative taped to it attached to the front standard. Scanning is prettt starlight forward from there.
  5. Re: 8x10 Scanning DIY for Epson scanners (v700/v750/v800/v850)

    Yeah. I can see that. That photo is telling. I couldn’t crop in like that with my 4x5 scans.
  6. Re: 8x10 Scanning DIY for Epson scanners (v700/v750/v800/v850)

    So even after downsampling there wouldn’t be enhancement to tonality or sharpness?

    If true , this is still good to know.
  7. Re: 8x10 Scanning DIY for Epson scanners (v700/v750/v800/v850)

    Didn’t want to start a new thread. Was looking into getting an 8x10 back for my Sinar and was looking for an analysis / opinion on what the scan quality leap was moving from 4x5 to 8x10 while using...
  8. Re: Looking for a film that can be shot at low asa ( 1 or 2 )

    I’m in Southern California. Mission Viejo to be exact. Was looking for teachers as well in the LA extended area.
  9. Re: Looking for a film that can be shot at low asa ( 1 or 2 )

    Thanks so much for this information. I didn’t know you could coat paper negatives as I’m pretty new to large format.

    What type of substances can you use to coat paper or glass negatives? I’d be...
  10. Re: Looking for a film that can be shot at low asa ( 1 or 2 )

    The copper plate is something new for her. She previously scanned the glass plates and printed them with a pigment printer.

    It has to be the coating / process.
  11. Re: Looking for a film that can be shot at low asa ( 1 or 2 )

    Is achieving that viscous effect simply a result of coating the plate with a specific chemical? Also I’m assuming that the long exposures are simply a result of an asa of 1. Just metered a scene and...
  12. Re: Looking for a film that can be shot at low asa ( 1 or 2 )

    Hey guys. Thanks for all the responses. I own an SP445 so I’m excited about being able to develope plates in one.

    The artist name is Whitney Lewis Smith http://www.whitneylewissmith.com Pretty...
  13. Re: Looking for a film that can be shot at low asa ( 1 or 2 )

    I’m pretty sure the artist used dry plates. Well this is all new to me.

    Does a dry plate fit into a standard 4x5 holder?

    How does one develope a dry plate?
  14. Looking for a film that can be shot at low asa ( 1 or 2 )

    Im still a novice shooting LF and recently drew a liking to an artist who shoots still life
    Who supposedly shoots 5-6 minute studio exposures at ISO 1-2.

    What kind of film can handle this?...
  15. C41 mistake mixing , trying to figure out development time

    Inadvertently mixed Unicolor developer in 800ml and added 200ml at the end but forgot about compensating for the amount of fluid. The end result was 1100ml.

    Can I compensate for this successfully...
  16. Re: Rodenstock XPort screw and threading where to buy

    I'm just trying to get the make and model of a screw before the vultures land.
  17. Re: Rodenstock XPort screw and threading where to buy

    Well I found the sync post but the screws are still MIA. Does anyone know the size of the screws that would fit the threading on this lens?
  18. Re: Rodenstock XPort screw and threading where to buy

    Yeah. I called two in the D.C. Area and they had no idea what I was talking about.
  19. Rodenstock XPort screw and threading where to buy

    I tripped over my sync chord and the threading and screw flew off my 150 S. It must not have been on too tight as it didn't break anything on the lens. I found one screw. The other screw and...
  20. Re: Using focal blades analyze to determine scan sharpnes

    Thanks for the response. The eye is quite good save for when the scanning OCD hits. Thought maybe this method could be used to eliminate doubt when it's present.
  21. Using focal blades analyze to determine scan sharpnes

    Recently purchased a betterscanning holder for the V850. This would be my first experience with a continuous height variability holder. In attempts to find the " Sweet Spot " for the scanner I've...

    5dsR DSLR scans first impression

    Using my Sinar as a scanning bed with a light pad clamped to the front axis and DSLR mounted to the rear standard.

    Scanned a section of a 4x5 Portra 160 negative. There's no question that the...

    Just an update. I initially troubleshooter the issue with the lens not being flush , a secondary issue popped as well. The rear standard was not closing completely flush. I did not notice this...

    Re: Schneider Apo Symmar 150mm f/5.6

    If you can, go for a Rodenstock APO Sironar S. More expensive but you'd likely never sell it.

    Just took a shot with it from 2 feet and it's the sharpest image I've ever printed. I thought from...
  25. Re: Studio Strobe and slower shutter speeds ( 1/4 - 1/60 )

    Yeah , I understand that. How exactly would one benefit from using a slower shutter speed with a leaf shutter. I understand the math behind a faster shutter but with slower speeds I don't see how...
  26. Studio Strobe and slower shutter speeds ( 1/4 - 1/60 )

    If someone is using only strobes in a room with little or no ambient light what is the advantage of using slower shutter speeds for still life. I've read a leaf shutter adapts to most shutter speeds...
  27. Re: Tmax 100 development and Scanning issue ( Silverfast )

    Just an update. I've switched to D76 with Tmax 100. The negatives now look great. I may have had a bad batch of XTOL or TMAX though.

    C41 and SP-445

    I've ventured into c41 development. Processed around 10 negatives so far and they look good.
    I've some confusion about pouring time. My Patterson tank empties fast. The SP-445 not as quickly.
    ...
  31. Re: C41 development. White sparkles form after negative dries.

    Yeah. That's what I'm thinking. I think it may be the blix. The color balance looks good so the development and temps must be within the margin of error. I'm shooting Ektar and jokingly I'm never...
  32. Re: C41 development. White sparkles form after negative dries.

    On the negative. I'll check which side. Appear to be dust size. I do use a stabilizer , the one from the unicolor kit. The stabilizer is fresh.

    I'll get to scanning and see
  33. C41 development. White sparkles form after negative dries.

    I've never had this issue with BW emulsions. I use a sous vide and unicolor kit. The exposures look good and the color balance is consistent and normal. The sparkles aren't dust. Maybe I shouldn't...
  34. Re: Rodenstock Sinaron SE 150 tricking out / chasing the shutter

    Thanks for the responses. I had to shoot the shot digitally which was a bummer but learned something about lenses in the process

    Great! Thank You
  36. Rodenstock Sinaron SE 150 tricking out / chasing the shutter

    Does anyone know the maximum speed at which this lens fails to keep up with a strobe? I realize this question maybe be impossible to answer but figured I'd ask. I can use an einstein or digibee 800. ...
  37. Re: Tmax 100 development and Scanning issue ( Silverfast )

    Yeah it's difficult to say. I shoot HP5 @ 200. With 10 minutes of development the negative is dense , maybe a touch too dense but the results are pleasing. Next to what I think a well exposed TMAX...
  38. Tmax 100 development and Scanning issue ( Silverfast )
