    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    The greater sharpness in the Howtek scan makes a HUGE difference in tonal and object separation. That is the main barrier to getting a great scan from the Epson - sharpness.

    This works for me too - I keep it fully assembled when not on a trip, allow it to breathe and hang it from the ceiling in the basement.
  5. Re: Metal vs Wood cameras - advantages/disadvantages

    One more point about the functionality and why I kept the 5x7 metal Canham camera - I also use the Canham 6x17 rollfilm back which works "best" on the Canham MQC metal camera. Using that rollfilm...
  6. Re: Metal vs Wood cameras - advantages/disadvantages

    I've had the Canham 5x7 wood and Canham 5x7 metal cameras. The metal camera weighs less than the wood one, by a little bit. I kept the metal one because I liked how it functioned. That's what it...

    Re: Going Wide on 5x7

    A 90mm Super Angulon is my normal wide angle for 5x7, but I have used a 75mm Nikkor-SW occasionally with the knowledge I'll have fall-off to compensate for later.

  10. Re: Disastrous Consequences (solved: fog with Intrepid lensboard)

    Designing the front standard to use a "common" existing lens board size (e.g. Technika) would be my suggestion. They are common, easily available, and interchangeable with other 4x5 cameras.

    Re: Sturdy 4x5?

    I agree - look for a 5x7 with a 4x5 back. More mass to the camera and a larger lensboard for your special lenses.

  33. Re: Epson V850 work-around for scanning 5x7 negatives.
