    Re: Sinar 8x10 Camera

    Neil, do you have a photo of the groundglass.

    I really REALLY want to shoot 10x8 polaroid. But I have been told it's probably more cost effective to invest in an entire new system than purchase...

  3. How to attach fresnel lens in holder to ground glass on Sinar F.

    Hi

    I did create a post in the Wanted section as I think I need a part or component for my Sinar.

    I thought I had a fresnel with no holder, when I went back to check my photos, I do have a...

    Re: Polaroid 405 mask for Sinar F.

    Yes that looks correct. Is that a Sinar product, or something you made?

    Polaroid 405 mask for Sinar F.

    Sorry if this seems like a daft question.

    I would quite like one of these.

    Between making lots of test shots with my 405 back and trying to cut my own mask, I now have something which seems...

    Thank you Bob.

    If any more institutions come up I will of course forward the Press Release to them.

    Best of luck (both in the election and with the film)!

    Re: Street Hassle

    I don't disagree, however this was many years ago with friends and we were shooting in underpasses, subways, etc in a very seedy part of town, even then perhaps it was a mistake to take it.

    Street Hassle

    Hi

    I am relatively new here.

    TL/DR: I am interested in hearing if anyone has encountered horror stories when shooting LF and having people either be a nuisance or destructive.

    My hope is...

    Re: Show off your Large Format camera!

    Update on my Sinar.

    Managed to source a Berlebach tripod and a Sinar pan tilt head. So now I have no excuse not to shoot anything, apart from crippling fear.

    Re: Around the house?

    This was my first ever 4x5 shot (not that I have taken many since).

    I wanted it almost as mundane as possible:

  16. Re: Best way to convert Berlebach tripod from 1/4 to 3/8 (for Sinar equipment)

    It turns out the Sinar pan tilt head also has a 1/4 screw. I've ordered a few bushings for now.

    It's funny as the only time I have ever come across equipment using 1/4 was an old Kiev MF camera I...

  18. Re: Best way to convert Berlebach tripod from 1/4 to 3/8 (for Sinar equipment)

    Thanks, I think I will invest in the Sinar or Linhof's. The thought of the camera snapping off is nightmarish.
  19. Best way to convert Berlebach tripod from 1/4 to 3/8 (for Sinar equipment)

    Hi

    I just bought a Berlabach tripod (bargain), as well as a Sinar pan/tilt head (small fortune).

    It looks as though the Sinar is 3/8 thread which I would expect, but the Berlebach seems to...

    I don't think I have ever thrown out a single photography paper box (storage), but I have only just started shooting 4x5, so I have none of the live ones emptied yet.

    Hello.

    My first post here.

    On Saturday I finally became the owner of a Sinar 4x5 F1 camera with Schneider lens (and a few other pieces thrown in).
