    Re: Aspect ratio of 10x8 and 5x4?

    It's not only printing that you have to be aware of these ratios. When I started shooting video clips which record at 16:9 for showing on monitors and TVs, I noticed that my still pictures created...

    Re: Aspect ratio of 10x8 and 5x4?

    1.25:1 doesn't easily help you if you looking to print. 4"x5" or 8"x10" or 16"x20" is more convenient to tell you the paper you need. All those measurements are 4x5 ratio times 1x, 2x and 4x.

    Re: Pentax digital spotmeter battery drain?

    I have the same problem with my Minolta Autometer IIIf. They claimed it wouldn't drain the battery. Wrong! So I take the battery out when not using it. Their next Model IV came with a power on-off...

    Re: What did you compose at Waters Edge?

    Nice shot. I'm curious about the comparison. As long as the film is flat, and you're using the same lens, why would a Chamonix be better than an Intrepid?

    The mounting and framing and hanging were also very professionally done. Nice job.

    Re: Provia 100F and Velvia 50

    Re: Provia 100F and Velvia 50

    Many pros used to shoot chromes at 1/3 less of a stop to increase color saturation. Makes them "POP".

    What I found interesting with negative color film like even Portra, is that when I bracket...

    Re: Hang it Dang it

    Same reason painter studios like north-facing windows. No direct sun. More natural "white" light, not too warm (orangey). Or maybe that's where his room is? :)
  21. Re: Does extending the center column accomplish the same thing as front rise?

    As an aside, my camera, a Chamonix 45H-2, has rise and fall on the front standard. But the default position for the rear standard is down as far as it can go. So there is only rise on the rear...
  22. Re: Does extending the center column accomplish the same thing as front rise?

    That's a great question and answers. Curious. Is there a chart or formula somewhere that shows just how much the change is when you use rise or fall?

    Re: USING TILT and SWING TOGETHER

    Thanks, Doremus. I've only tried both tilt and swing once or twice using back tilt first asymmetrically. Then playing with the swing. Don't think I did that great.

    I didn't need the No. 3. I also didn't like the little nibs that tighten the lens. They look like they'll break or bend compared to the Toyo I bought. Maybe someone can comment on the strength of...
  30. Re: There is a weird little screw on my Schneider SA XL 5,6/58

    I used a special spanner tool to tighten the lens to the board after removing this screw. The lens has to be tight to prevent slippage. The tool helps. The tool works on a number of shutter types...

  32. Re: How Too Much Tilt Can Tilt the Beginner's Brain

    With 4x5, which I'm relatively new to, I've been told to rely on tilt, where applicable. So I've just gotten used to leaving it at f22 unless I think I need more DOF. Then I switch to f32.

  34. Re: How Too Much Tilt Can Tilt the Beginner's Brain

  35. Poll: Re: Poll: How do you process large format black and white film?

    I'm embarrassed. I'm the only one of 97 people (so far) who sends his film out to develop and print/displays digitally. Only one other sends it to a lab but prints chemically.
