    Re: Tray print washer question

    Oh how I wish we had one of these water walls when I did stone/brick work. Hours breathing that dust, with and without masks! Not good!

  6. Re: Thinking about getting a Crown Graphic as a secondary 4x5 for hand-held shots

    I'm new to all this still, but bought a Crown from a Forum member a few months back for portraits with flash indoors. Handheld though because I'd be on the run. Then used it outside making portraits...

    Nice mix and match.

    And I've seen your, and other, references to 5x7 tapered bellows for 4x5 in order to reduce bellows flare. I am not really familiar with bellows flare. Similar to lens flare...

    SINAR Norma: Now I get it!

  11. Re: Large Format Field Camera connected to modern flash

  18. Re: Better lens for my Crown Graphic?

    Simply repeating what I've read: swapping out lenses, even if same (front?) focal length, doesn't guarantee the cam will work. Probably due to reason stated above. Also heard that the Xenars vary...

  33. Re: Folding problem with Intrepid 4x5 MK4 camera

    After examining my Intrepid MK4 further, I discovered I only had damage on one side, and that was very slight, likely because I didn't fold it very often at all. Maybe just once.
