  1. Re: Any potentially deletrious effects of having grease/oil in close proximity to a l

    Um, never mind ... came up with a better solution that requires neither a gasket nor any grease or oil. :D
  2. Any potentially deletrious effects of having grease/oil in close proximity to a lens?

    I'm building a hybrid, plate-type, technical camera to provide rise / fall movements with my Sony A7R and the gap between the fixed and sliding carbon fiber panels is slightly less than .004" because...
  3. Re: Work in progress: Ultralight 4X5 build, with Carbon Fiber + 3D printed plastic

    So I'm curious about where things as of today, more than six months later:

    Are you using the camera or did you decide view cameras aren't for you?

    If you are using it, do you have any plans to...

    Re: Some B&W Night Shots...

    From my "85258" project, wherein I walk around my zip code late at night with my dog, taking photos:

  5. Re: Where are the great shots? Am I a cynicist or a realist?

    I suspect you're correct about this.

    Except that even the Flockr -- er, Flickr -- and Instagram crowds aren't much interested in New Topographics style photography these days.

    I know this...

  7. Re: Where are the great shots? Am I a cynicist or a realist?

    Several years ago, I finally acknowledged reality -- i.e., that the world was not desperate to pay me for my photography ... lol -- and stopped trying to monetize it via print sales, etc.

    Since...

    Re: 35mm and digital infrared

    As is often the case, the answer to your question is "it depends."

    For example, when I converted my Samsung NX500 by removing the cover glass / hot filter / dust shaker mechanism, I knew I was...

    They can be found readily both new and used for not too much money and the ones with large-diameter wheels should roll over most obstacles without too much...
