  1. Re: Need Light Meter Recommendations | My SinarSix isn't working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I am far from a "zonie" (as someone else in the thread called them) but this is exactly how I use my Sekonic L-508. I'm sure the 778 works differently, but with the 508, I put it in EV mode, point...
  2. Re: Linhof Technica range finder

    I had a Technika 4 before I returned it. When I was playing around, it looked like the rangefinder was held in place by a few screws on the inside of the rear standard. I don’t know about the 3 but...

    Re: American Southwest in full Autumn

    I don’t have any issue with California except I’ve only been there twice, and both times were in cities (LA area to buy a bike to ride home, and Berkeley for a concert I flew in for) so I can’t...

    Re: Technikardan wide angle bellows

    Can you focus the 150 to 4-5 feet with the bag, or is it only good for infinity?

    When you say distort, do you mean the bag gets taught and pulls the standard out of parallel, or something else?

    Technikardan wide angle bellows

    I’m considering returning the Technika IV I bought from KEH because it’s pretty rough condition. I was idly looking at a Technikardan 4x5 for sale (for significantly more obviously) that only has a...
  6. Re: Technika in a Domke F-2 or other shoulder bag?

    The camera came this weekend. For the time being I can fit everything into a Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home that I already owned. It’s not a perfect fit, but I can get the camera, several lenses, 6...

    Re: American Southwest in full Autumn

    No problem. I travel it every year, so I’m always looking for new and interesting bits I haven’t seen.

    Re: Adding a fresnel to a Technika IV

    Right, I have no interest in handheld/rangefinder, I just find it surprising that it seems like there is a factory modification, but there is no information out there on how to determine if the...

    Re: Adding a fresnel to a Technika IV

    While I’m aware that a CLA is probably in order, I’m not sure it is in the budget. As my very first LF camera, I was hoping to actually learn to shoot it (and decide if LF is for me) before sinking...

    Re: Adding a fresnel to a Technika IV

    There are no clips for the GG in front of the screen that I can see. Is there any way to tell if the position of the GG has been adjusted for a fresnel?

    Also, I’m a little confused—in some cases...

    Adding a fresnel to a Technika IV

    I just received my first LF camera yesterday—a Linhof Technika IV purchased from KEH. After doing some test shots yesterday evening I came to the conclusion that I probably need a fresnel screen to...

    Re: American Southwest in full Autumn

    Sorry to wake a slightly aged thread, but I just saw this. I live in southern New Mexico (about 50 miles from White Sands National Monument) and every year I take a motorcycle trip through the four...
  13. Re: Technika in a Domke F-2 or other shoulder bag?

    Thanks! Those images help a lot. From what I can find, the Technika will be a little larger than the Camonix folded but probably not enough to make much of a difference.

    On a related note, FedEx...
  14. Re: Technika in a Domke F-2 or other shoulder bag?

    Thanks. The Tenba looks nice. Their price on B&H is equivalent to a Domke F-2, so could definitely be in the running.
  15. Re: Technika in a Domke F-2 or other shoulder bag?

    they are pro gear bags, much more common in the film/tv world. I discovered them when working for a TV station as everything was in a porta brace bag. they are generally very well built,...

    It seems the glass is the same--MRC is "multi resistant coated", 010M I assume is the glass/tint spec. I don't know if it is just a catalog number, or if there is anything meaningful in it. XS-Pro...
  17. Re: Technika in a Domke F-2 or other shoulder bag?

    Ahh, I see now the different layouts have dimensions. That’s helpful.

    EDIT: the one thing I’m not sure about—the KEH listing is titled “4X5 LINHOF TECHNIKA IV” but the photos show the...

    Not inexpensive:

  19. Re: Technika in a Domke F-2 or other shoulder bag?

    Thanks for the suggestions. I’m avoiding backpacks because I don’t want something I need to put on the ground to access. My knees don’t really work (both tibias were shattered into dozens of...
  20. Technika in a Domke F-2 or other shoulder bag?

    After much procrastination, I ordered a Linhof Technika IV from KEH along with a couple lenses, lens boards and some film holders. Now, while I wait for that to be shipped, I’m faced with acquiring...

    thanks! The classified are now visible.

    Sorry my intro was brief--here is a little more. My photography is definitely environmental. Some is landscape, but some is more street-scape,...

    stepping up?

    I've had an account for a while, but haven't posted. Well, I'm getting a little closer to pulling the trigger. I haven't fully decided, but I'm looking at some kind of wood 4x5 field camera. All...
