  2. Re: “Tripods for Bipods” (John Sexton new tech tip video)

    I actually have a 8x10 Gowland (not-so PocketView). It's very light, the problem is the 8x10 film holders really add up in weight fast. Not to mention the lenses are heavier (although there are many...

    Re: What's going on with Shen Hao?

    Maybe a reseller or they just decided to list some cameras on EBay to increase sales? The prices don't scream "close-out" to me.

  7. Re: NEW BOOK: Finally, an easier and inexpensive (very) new technology for photogravu

    This looks very interesting. I'm assuming this means workers can avoid the current shortage of polymer plates (caused by the CPU chip shortage) and still practice photogravure?

    Re: 300mm Rodagon with Slight Edge Fungus

    Can you try cleaning the fungus? Or is it in between elements? If cleaned it should not get worse. The small coating scratch doesn't seem like an issue to me, enlarging or not I doubt you could tell...

    Re: Technique for increasing depth of field

    If you scan digitally, focus stacking might be another way to get more depth of field without stopping down. Although you would need to make likely at least 3 exposures for that to work.
