    Re: W. Butcher & Son, Rapid Rectilinear

    Are there typographical errors in the listed dates? The listed dates are not linear.

    I also have a Zone VI camera, and years ago I had problems with light leaks. I sent it to Richard Ritter (www.lg4mat.net) for calibration. He fixed the problem, and calibrated the camera--including...

    Austin,
    In your image of the bus, the angle of the grass and the slight downward tilt of the vehicle combine to create the impression of high speed to the left. Nice!

  9. Re: Pentax Digital Spot Meter (Zone VI Holster)

    I would guess the PD indicates a Pentax Digital holster and the P indicates the original Pentax analog meter. Of course, the PS on Vaughn's holster raises serious questions about my logic!

    It appears to be one of the display "cameras" that came out of India at least a decade ago. Purely decorative.

    Re: The new Tri-X 8x10 film

    I like the images of Yellow Branch Falls. Also, it occurred to me that if the same shot were taken after the leaves had fallen the water would look like icicles.
