    Fair enough. I had a bit of a less than ideal experience with my Shen Hao which has made me less trusting of wooden field cameras. Someone should loan me a /good/ wooden camera to reset my...

    Re: New to large format: Toyo 45A

    Also to consider is what else you will need to get to a fully functional setup. i.e. light meter, film holders, dark cloth. Some you can fake (a black t-shirt makes a halway decent dark cloth)...
  6. Re: Getting back into 4x5 -- Need some Suggestions

    I'm surprised you find the Technika and similar cameras slower than a wooden field camera. I've found exactly the opposite. I've found that I can setup my Technika with a lens pre-focused to...
  7. Re: Getting back into 4x5 -- Need some Suggestions

    I'd second (or third) the suggestion to look at used Technikas. I have an early Master, and I liked it so much more than the Shen Hao that was my first LF camera. Its just so rigid and precise...

    due to the hard edges on the light leak, what ever was blocking light at the top of the film would have to be very close to the film when the leak was exposed. It almost makes it seem like the leak...

    Re: Camper Van Suggestions in 2021

    Thanks, that’s kind of what I needed, what’s not clear though is how telephoto lenses should be treated. That says 1/f+1/d=1/b. Since it is a telephoto, for f do I use 720 (the effective focal...
