    Re: Zeiss Protar 8.5cm f18 Bill Brandt lens

    Image distortion in just about any large format lens, used at it's intended subject distance, is nearly undetectable.
    Specifically the 47mm Super Angulon has essentially no distortion detectable in...
  2. Re: The Problem with Modern Lenses.. transfered to those new to view camera image mak

    What is the problem? A lens can't be 'too sharp' anymore than one's tripod can't be 'too stable.'
  3. Re: Is it possible to print with 4x5 negs using a LPL 7700 enlarger?

    LPL7700 is a nice contemporary enlarger. If the price is right, that enlarger and a rollfilm back for your 4x5 would make a good combination.

    HB is Hasselblad? In that case your dark slide comes in from the same side as your light leak. Might want to check there.

  10. Re: Does extending the center column accomplish the same thing as front rise?

    Of course it will work, but you will need a very long center column. Depending on your lens focal length and the distance to the subject, one millimeter of front rise might take a meter of center...

    I resisted the urge to open mine up any more than needed for the electrical repairs. Since the filters are mirrors, I treat them like 35mm SLR mirrors...don't touch unless absolutely necessary!

  36. Re: Does a Photograph's medium change your opinion of it?

    If one separates a photograph from its medium it becomes something else.
