    Re: Best dual axis bubble spirit?

    I use this one. It's a three-axis so you don;t need two mounts.
    If for some reason it's too wide to fit the flange, you can always file it down a little....

    How does the seller know the shutter is in good shape if he doesn't have a battery to test it?

    Re: Yellow, Orange, Red Filter Factors?

    Glad to hear that because B+W recommends that for the yellow +1 , orange +2 and red +3 filters I use from them. The only difference is for my orange filter, they say its +2 stops however it's equal...

    Peter, Thanks to your spending an afternoon with me on a "photoshoot" showing me the ropes. It certainly helped a lot when I started LF a little over a year ago. Thanks again. I recommend newcomers...

    Do you trust the film manufacturer's recommendation on their specification sheet or the filter manufacturer's recommendation?

    We're lucky in the East. We usually have loads of rain and much fewer forest fires. I think the last time we had an official drought in New York was back in the 1960's. They stopped serving water...
  13. Re: Availability of Fujichrome Velvia 50, 4x5 sheet film

    It didn't take off because the colors suck. Since I shoot on a tripod, the one-stop lower speed of Velvia 50 is worth the better colors.
  14. Re: Availability of Fujichrome Velvia 50, 4x5 sheet film

    But when you get Velvia 50 right, there's nothing like it. :)

    If you add a center filter, the size will get even bigger for add-on contrast, polarizing and other filters.

    Film photography is not simple if you plan on converting (scanning) for printing, displaying on your TV or monitor or cell phone, etc. You're going to be busy enough with a child so trying to find...

    Alan,

    The answer depends greatly on your personal work flow so only you can really answer the question.

    But from an absolute point of view, for sure fluid mounting is capable of giving a better...
  26. Re: A few, limited observations on traditional portrait perspective for the newcomer

    Look at my avatar picture. It was an extreme crop from a much wider photo. What lens would that be on a 4x5, 6x7 and 35mm if shot full?
  27. Re: A few, limited observations on traditional portrait perspective for the newcomer

    Just to divert a little, today so many portraitures and blog videos are so distorted with big noses and obtuse faces due to getting closer with their wide-angle lenses on cameras and how vlogging...
  28. Re: A few, limited observations on traditional portrait perspective for the newcomer

    F32 would give you 7" DOF which I guess is how thick my head is about. So would f32 be better at 5 1/2 feet. (focus range 5' 2.7" to 5' 9.7") You focus on the eyes and get the full head from tip...
  29. Re: A few, limited observations on traditional portrait perspective for the newcomer

    Would a 300mm with 4x5 be a good portrait lens? I'm asking because I already have one.

    The main question I have, does it make a difference over dry scans on a V850?
  31. Re: Epson V850 Pro Scanner and 5x7 film & other

    1. I misunderstood your first issue. If you're referring to 120 film (6x6) already mounted, then no there is no holder for it only for 35mm mounted slides.
  32. Re: Epson V850 Pro Scanner and 5x7 film & other

    Raymond, I have aV850 Pro.
    1. There are two holders for each format including 120 medium format. The holder has some problems for some. Check this page out....

    Thanks for the diagram. I understand it and it explains the situation well. I have to admit I have trouble seeing it intuitively. I shot it at f22; I suppose f32 would have helped a little.

    Re: Technique for focusing "into your scene"

    Thanks for that. I just thought it was strange the way the portion in the middle came up slightly out of focus. I guess that has to dow with the movement I made? But it's hard for me to visualize.
