    Re: Deardorff Specials

    Guessing you mean Deardorff's "4 x 5 Special View Camera". Seemingly paradoxically a 1967 flyer I have on "The 4 x 5 Special View Camera" calls it "the STANDARD VIEW CAMERA for Color and Black and...

    Re: Help with Carl Zeiss lens please!

    Absent any evidence to the contrary, e.g. the aperture scale doesn't match the lens, that is doesn't have the maximum aperture as f/3.5, there's every reason to think that lens is in its original...

    Re: Help with Carl Zeiss lens please!

    Yes you are correct, your lens was made in 1937. Per Hartmut Thiele's Fabrikationsbuch Photooptik II Carl Zeiss Jena it's one of a batch of 100 serial numbers 2,025,801 - 2,025,900, production of...

    Re: Good light lens for 8x10’

    I'm sure Peter meant Kerry Thalman, see here for example: http://www.thalmann.com/largeformat/

    Last updated in 2002 but I don't think there's been any new large format lenses since then.

  7. Re: Compound shutter repair or replace?
