    Re: Lens Cleaner

    I prefer Purosol to ROR. I have both.
  2. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    I used mine the other day, but I haven't gotten around to scanning the film.

    Their lens cleaner works the best of any I've tried.

  6. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    I like Raptars, too. I have a 240. The problem, and the problem with Ilex lenses, are the shutters. I'm just not a fan. I prefer how modern Copal, Compur and Prontor shutters work. For instance,...
  7. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    I have a 300 Fuji L. I like it, but it's not like I've done a bunch of comparisons.

    Looking at your comments, I'd also check out an Ilex Paragon. I haven't had a 300, but I've had a couple...

    Re: Poor Man's 35 mm DSLR scanner

    These are subtractive filters. Using them lessens the amount of light. Usually, when scanning, you want as much light as you can get. So, unless one has a really good reason, it's better to use...

    Re: Technique for focusing "into your scene"

    When I look back on my large format technique, I often use front rise and a very small amount of tilt, and that's about it. Sure, there are exceptions.

    Yes, my camera has the same issues. I'm sure it could be fixed. I have everything but the tilting lens boards, and that wouldn't be hard to make.

  24. Re: Wooden 8x10 Eastman Commercial Camera - anyone know anything about it?

    I have one. Mine needs a refurbishment. Note that the tilting lens board, which I don't have, is the only direct way to get front tilt. The camera is more deluxe than, say, a 2D. Yes, it's...

  28. Re: Digital Scanning vs. Flatbed Scanning?

    Yes. With a 24mp camera, I get about 1000 spi more than with an Epson when I scan a resolution target. A friend with a 40mp camera gets a real 4000 spi.
    Better than an Epson scanner in both...
