  1. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    That's a nicely neutral background blur. Personally, I don't like attention-getting background blurs, ala swirlies, blobs, strainer aperture shapes..... Occasionally, they can be effective, but...

    Re: 11x14 Deardorff Studio Camera

    Sure. The big thing to know is that there's a heavy lead weight in each column. You don't want that crashing down at any point. So.....Lock carriage. Take off the ground glass back and set it...

    Re: 11x14 Deardorff Studio Camera

    It's against site rules for us to give appraisals. These are wonderful cameras, but they're very big, bulky and heavy. Few people have the space for them. Check completed listings on Ebay.
  9. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Buy the right thing once. That's often cheaper (and less frustrating) in the long run.

  18. Re: Which would be easier to build - 8x10 SLR or TLR?

    I don't have any problem focusing with a Sinar 2x bino-reflex viewer. It's easy to watch elements go in and out of focus.
  19. Re: Which would be easier to build - 8x10 SLR or TLR?

    You will have to raise the mirror and take the exposure. That's a bit clunky. The traditional method is to focus, close lens load holder...and then watch with your head near the front of the camera...
