  1. Re: Help me choose a camera to hike 2000+ miles

    I remembered a young man freshly graduated from Yale walked from east coast to west cost and then back with our Chamonix 45N2 camera. He took plenty of pictures and kept his vow of silence during his...

    Re: 30cm Heliar on 4x5

    Superb lens for 4x5 head and shoulder shots if your 4x5 camera has a big and sturdy front standard. Covers 8x10 with no movement.

    Re: Cooke Portrait Lens Serial Numbers

    Not sure Cooke XIV is considered a portrait lens or not. But here is a 21 inch with serial number: 221625. I do like its look on my 16x20 ground glass. :)

    Re: Which Chamonix 4x5?

    There are flights, but slower than usual. No EMS, FedEx takes about two weeks to reach your door. We ship 1-3 times a week now due to reduced flights. Used to be everyday.

    Nice one! What softness setting did you use? Wide open at f/4.5?

    Drew,

    What is your experience of putting a sheet of Mylar between the glass the negative?

    Thanks.
  12. Re: Can it be a solution for avoiding newton rings

    Found this one:

    http://fpointinc.com/glass.htm

    But its online ordering is not working and don't know if it is still in business.
  13. Re: Can it be a solution for avoiding newton rings

    Laci,

    My 810 contact printer are using 9x11 and 9 5/8 x 11 11/16 glasses and the betterscanning offers 8x10 glass.


    Has anyone used contact printing Mylar sheets? How does that work?
  14. Re: Can it be a solution for avoiding newton rings

    I have also noticed that 810 Tmax film gives the most Newton ring as its very shiny side is pressed against the glass.
  15. Re: Can it be a solution for avoiding newton rings

    All my printings are contact printing and all my contact printing frames give me Newton rings. Should I replace them with Tru Vue Museum glass? They are made for picture frames, not contact printers....

    Re: 8x10 Portrait Lenses

    A 16 inch Heliar is bit too heavy for the front standard of Kodak 2D. A 14 inch one with a Packard shutter will be nice.

    Re: Which Chamonix 4x5?

    It comes with a black carry bag and you can leave your lens on the camera. But you can't use your 450mm lens with H1 camera as it can't take an extension board.

    New Mexico during Christmas

    We are thinking about a road trip from southern California to New Mexico during Christmas for about a week. Any tips and recommendations for spots to shoot?

    Thanks.

    You actually can use single element of Cooke convertible lens for 11x14 head and shoulder. I have tried the rear element for some head shots. Not bad at all.

    What lens did you use for your brother's 11x14 head shot? I still remember that picture.
  29. Re: Need Advice on 16x20 cameras and film from owners/users

    I use my Chamonix 16x20 and have a 14x17 back so I can shoot both formats. I can handle it myself as long as the walk is not over a mile. :)
  30. Re: Head and Shoulder Portrait Lens for 11x14 Camera

    You probably need a 24 inch lens. 19 inch lens is good for half or whole body.
