  1. Re: Lens Comparison: 135mm 4.7 Xenar and 135mm 4.5 Heliar

    Robert, both shots were taken at f/11. I will primarily use the Heliar because of the more pronounced out-of-focus areas. I've learned that for handheld use the out-of-focus bits are inevitable, so...
  2. Re: Lens Comparison: 135mm 4.7 Xenar and 135mm 4.5 Heliar

    Sorry Kevin that was pretty obtuse. I tend to yada yada over details these days. I should state up front that I processed the Heliar image to roughly match the contrast from the Xenar. The Heliar is...
  3. Lens Comparison: 135mm 4.7 Xenar and 135mm 4.5 Heliar

    Hi all,

    I recently replaced the 135mm 4.7 Xenar on my Crown Graphic Special with a 135mm 4.5 Heliar, and I made one set of comparison shots to share. These were taken at close distance at f/11,...

    Re: Colorado Springs area in July

    Its hard to beat the high mountains in July. If you are in to car camping, backpacking, or 5-10 mi. day hikes I'd recommend the E side of the Sangre de Cristo. Its about a 1.5-2 hr. drive, and if...

    Re: Changing from v700 to IQSmart2 for 8x10?

    Its an even bigger loss of information with inferior hardware. I have an area on film that is 3 pixels. The high-end flatbed measures [(4,4,4) (4,4,5) (4,4,6)] whereas the Epson measures [(4,4,4)...

    Its not all matrix transformations (software). The information in the original matrix that is to be transformed (hardware) is very, very important.

    Re: Changing from v700 to IQSmart2 for 8x10?

    I disagree w/ Pere as no amount of post could achieve the same tonality and color with the Cezanne. This should not be surprising as we are comparing a unit with a plastic lens, fixed focus and a...

    Re: Changing from v700 to IQSmart2 for 8x10?

    An 8x10 and an Epson is a powerful combination. That said, my Cezanne smokes my Epson 4990.

    My first impression when comparing the two was that the Epson scans using default software and medium...
  10. Re: Graflex Anniversary Speed Graphic 4x5 questions

    Don't overlook the Meridian 45b which is a nice Linhof style camera. Why an Anniversary? I'd go for a Pacemaker. The 1/1000 and 1/500 settings are useful for handheld wide aperture work. Either are...

  21. Re: Pictorialism - Soft focus and alternate processes

  22. Re: Printing on Epson Signature worthy papers or anything else

    I really like hot press natural for the aforementioned reasons. I will add that its cost is lower than most, if not all, high quality papers, and you can use ultra premium matte paper for proofing.

  30. Re: Possible major problem with my Epson 3800 printer

    Have you cleaned the purge pads for the maintenance cartridge? Excess ink on the pads may be getting onto the head, and thus the print. A google search should produce a video on how to clean the pads.
