  1. Re: Old tripod, female thread on the ball head. How to connect to Linhof?

    If your Linhof 3 camera is a Technica, I would just get a quick release clamp with a hole that you can put a screw through into the ballhead. RRS has made them, krosno65...

    Re: 8x10 platform head options

    A fixed deflection giving say 0.01mm of movement at a distance of 0.5" from the point of rotation would also give 0.1mm of movement at a distance of 5" from the point of rotation.

    Re: 8x10 platform head options

    If you aren't using an RRS plate on the bottom of your camera, that might be part of the problem. Each manufacturer seems to have slightly different dimensions/shape.

    It somewhat looks like the right side is focused further back than the left side. Could there be something preventing your film holder from seating flush to the back on one end?

    I also recommend the Canham MQC 5.7. The bellow allows very wide-angle lenses to be used but will also give you about a 24" extension. Canham has an adapter that will get you from their lens board...
