    Re: How to learn a type of film?

    I would second Oren's questions. While it is true that structure (grain, etc.) is not the issue in LF that it can be in smaller formats (assuming, at least, prints of moderate magnification, and 4x5...

    Kumar, that's quite an apparatus, a testament to the extensive thoughtfulness that went into professional design in an economy that valued industrial quality and innovation.

    Re: Mounting gels behind the lens, 4x5

    Hey, folks, I just OCR'd my PDF of the complete Zone VI newsletters and found Fred P's complete description. It in Dec. 1977. If anyone's interested, I'll transcribe it.
