    Re: Describe a style for me

    Tonal qualities aside, the stand out thing I see here is F/(Big number). Lots of DoF. Even the macro shots look to be well stopped down.

    I would too. I have a couple of young children and am self employed and have a show in Rotterdam coming up so things are pretty busy right now. Hopefully Early next week though. Iíll have my Plaubel...

    Itíd also slow the process of raising the camera up!! So very little chance of it shaking!!

  11. Re: Handheld 4x5 shooting with a wista rf and on-camera flash.

    That bit seems very easy assuming the cams are good and the rf infinity is set. You focus on the gg at infinity for each of the three lenses then adjust and tighten the stops on the focus bed. There...
  12. Re: Handheld 4x5 shooting with a wista rf and on-camera flash.

    Itís early days but Iíll do my best. First impressions are the weight!! 3.5kg with glass. But also how robust it feels!! The RF is clear which was critical for me. And hopefully now, itís accurate....

    I recall that from your website. Iím quoting from the list whereas my lenses state NW I think. So am I correct with the numbers or still misunderstanding this?

    You are quite correct. It is a 125mm Fujinon NSW f5.6 lens. The flange distance according to http://brucebarrett.com/large_format/LF_Lens_Coverage.html is 120mm. The Fujinon 105 NSW that I have is...

  25. Re: My perfect fixed lens LF camera - decision 1, the lens.

    Thanks but Iíve used 90mm lenses and know theyíre too wide for me. You might mean the travelwide cameras? I got the impression that the focussing system wasnít very durable. Agreed though, they do...
  26. Re: My perfect fixed lens LF camera - decision 1, the lens.
