    Re: Getting started in 11x14"

    Greg,

    Isn't 11x14 negative big enough for pt/pd printing? Why do you consider making digital negatives out of 11x14 negatives?

    Just curious....

    Thanks.
    Hugo

    Re: New Ultra-Light Chamonix 810 Camera

    Our Alpinist X is convertible model with about 1 lbs more added weight. You can do both horizontal and vertical with X model without tilting the camera. No bag bellows.

    Al least 10-12 months away if we make it. Our Alpinist X is so popular and nobody asks about 810H model anymore.

  8. Re: Voigtländer Euryscop No. 6 Series IV Real World Coverage ?

    Yes in the style of Sturges. Like when you use a 240mm-250mm lens with 8x10 portraits. You have to understand a 24" lens is considered normal lens for 16x20 format, just like a 12" in the case of...
  9. Re: Voigtländer Euryscop No. 6 Series IV Real World Coverage ?

    To give you an example: would you use a 250mm lens for 8x10 head/shoulder shots? Do they look good? Yes you can use a 250mm for 8x10 portrait, but only at a distance, maybe 15-20 feet away. Many...
  10. Re: Voigtländer Euryscop No. 6 Series IV Real World Coverage ?

    It covers both 14x17 and 16x20 for head/shoulder shots, but the pictures don't look pleasing because the lens is too short for these formats.
  11. Re: Goerz Doppel Anastigmat Serie III No 7 360mm f6 COVERAGE or lens catalogue

    People don't care much about corners when doing portraits which are usually done at close distance with extended bellows. In another world, a lens that covers 11x14 at infinity will probably cover...
  12. Re: Voigtländer Euryscop No. 6 Series IV Real World Coverage ?

    I looked at reflected upside down head/shoulder images on my 16x20 ground glass and didn't make the exposure. It covers and I think you can even use 14x17 if not for head/shoulders.

    Different max f stops, different looks and different focal lengths.
  15. Re: Goerz Doppel Anastigmat Serie III No 7 360mm f6 COVERAGE or lens catalogue

    I know Protar V 7a 39cm has an image circle of 33 1/2 inch and will cover 20x24 at its smallest stop. The E. Klauss version I have does cover, at least.

    Re: 4x5 lenses: telephoto and portraiture

    Alan,

    You have two wide angle lenses and one normal lens of 150mm. So your real question is how to choose a longer lens that is suitable for portraits. It does not have to be a telephoto design....

    Re: Wide Angle RR

    While they are not RR lenses, Dallmeyer and Meyer made some wide angle lenses in 1930s with F/6.3 viewing stop. 100-105% coverage. Very sharp. With patience, should find them under $200.
