    As for instagram, you have to have an account there to look at stuff, which means it does lock some people out from viewing, compared to say, Flickr. which one still can view without having to sign...

    Re: soft focus lens for architecture

    The 120 mm lens from www.re-inventedphotoequip.com is the first that comes to mind, not that wide on 4x5 but perhaps better on a 5x7. According to the data sheet it should cover 250 mm coverage.

    Linhof vs Berlebach for Sinar Norma

    I am thinking of getting a tripod for the Norma 4x5/5x7, using the pan/tilt head, with a 180 Symmar S. I have been using the 5x7 previously on a SLIK 700 DX, but that one is going to be used for "the...
