    Re: Aspect ratio of 10x8 and 5x4?

    except in the cinema universe where aspect is always stated against 1, so the academy ratio is 1.375:1, widescreen flat is 1.85:1, cinemescope (anamorphic) is 2.35:1. By making all x:1, its easy to...

    Re: Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 135mm f4.5

    I have the Xenar 210mm ƒ6.1 and its very nice. I don't know the specs on the one you have, but being a fast tessar based lens, I'm going to guess that while it will probably cover 4x5, you won't...

    Re: Field Tripod for Horseman 8x10

  19. Re: Best long lenses usable with Linhof Master Technika

    I have the 360 tele-Arton, and with a 5.5 aperture, it’s a big heavy lens. It’s why I got the Nikkor 360/500 bundle. It’s slower, but both lengths together are still smaller and lighter than the...

    Re: Inexpensive 4x5 field cameras

    Re: Schneider APO-Tele Xenar HM 800 f/12?

    another lens to consider are the Nikkor 600/800/1200 tele set. Much cheaper than $14k, even for a complete set. They are tele lenses, so you'll need less bellows (the 800 takes about 530mm at...

  31. Re: How do I recognize lenses that will cover an 8X10 plate with no vignetting

    look for the listed image circle to be larger than 325mm. Keep in mind:

    - at 325mm you will have zero room for movements
    - you usually need to be stopped down to ƒ22 to get the listed image...
