    Ok, if that is the take. As a first time LF user I looked for a camera that could be used in a multiple of situations. Also I do most of my photography "outdoors" meaning when on the go. Could be a...

    Re: Seiko electric shutters?

    I found quite a bit of info on them in the Fuji GX680 repair and maintenance manual. I was more interested in how the elektric control works.

  6. Re: Decent wide angle lens for Linhof Master. No range finder use

    What is a wide angle for me might not be a wide angle for you. I feel the Fuji SWD 75mm isn't wide enough to be called a "wide". But I do like it. The Fuji CM-W 125mm is my most used lens however....

    Re: Why does the ground glass lack four corners?

    I would think they cut them to avoid the weakest point of the glass. A bump or pressure on the corner is the best way to crack glass. Also less sharp points during production, transport and repair.
  8. Re: Roll film and Digital fixed lens camera habits-expectations imported into view ca

    That is something that is the other way round for me. With 35mm (at least with older lenses) there is a useful DOF marking on the barrel. Might not be perfect but at least there is something. I miss...
  9. Re: Roll film and Digital fixed lens camera habits-expectations imported into view ca

    Well, you can always use a dark cloth on your phone... An lcd behaves just the same as a GG when lit by direct sunlight so the solution is similar.
  10. Re: Roll film and Digital fixed lens camera habits-expectations imported into view ca

    I must say I do have problems with the view camera but they are mostly related to the ground glass/focusing and very slow iso 100 film. It is just so dim and a mess getting a good view or getting the...

    - they go into the bag with the camera
    - too much


    Depends on the light, but as there is almost nothing else then 100 iso, does it matters?

    A bundle of optical fibres would quite literally bend around a corner. But it isn't a lens.

  24. Re: Do you standardize your screw-on filters by thread size?

    I got 2 with 67mm by accident (meaning I never tought of that). Now I just keep in the CM-W series so I don't need more filters. They have more sizes of lenses than I need so No worry.
  25. Re: Switching lenses. Any disadvantage with downsizing the filter thread size?

    Nothing to worry about.You just need a ring or new filter.

    There is nothing illogical with the CM-W series that standardises (largely) on 67mm. I like the idea and just stay in the series. Just a...
