    Re: Vintage Portrait lens for 4x5 view camera

    The Heliar and Ektar are quite different from each other - are you going for vintage sharpness or vintage softness? Also worth considering are the Verito/Veritar and Kodak Portrait lenses.

  7. Re: Opinion: Would a 90mm f8 or f6.8 lens be too dark for dawn and dusk landscape?

    Create your own infinity stops and shoot at f/16. All you need is a flashlight to set your focus at the infinity stop (or other preset hyperfocal distance) and set the f stop and you're done.
  8. Re: Does a new luxury 8x10 camera make sense in 2021?

  11. Re: How to keep film ending up wrong side of dark slide after exposing

    Pulling and reinserting the dark slide is not the best way to check, so I am offering a better check on film loading.
  12. Re: How to keep film ending up wrong side of dark slide after exposing

    Quadruple checking while loading is my approach. First double check is when I think the film is under both side rails, but before sliding the sheet the rest of the way in, I try to lift the film at...

  19. Re: Does a Photograph's medium change your opinion of it?

    I say the medium can enhance the effect of the image, but is not the sole factor. I've seen plenty of ugly images created in every possible medium.

    Re: A quick comparison of three 135mm 4x5 lenses

    I think shooting all of them at near wide open, like f/5.6 would have been more interesting to see things like how out of focus areas look, possible distortion, etc.
  23. Re: Bought a nice Linhof Master Technika Classic. Can I do the CLA myself to save mon

    No, you did not buy a "nice Linhof Master Technika Classic" - you got one with serious problems which should have been disclosed prior to the sale. I would return it and shop wisely next time.

    Re: 4x5 sheets with a white "triangle"

    Not a lens problem. You have fogging of the film from light leaking around a badly seated bellows or lensboard perhaps.
