  1. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    Yep. Jens needed a few legit artist endorsements in order to fleece the rest, as CB lived just a short distance away, maybe 5mi. What Jens really was after was mandatory equip maintenance contracts...
  2. Re: What Color Film are you using in your 8x10 to capture Fall Colors?

    Well, Charlie and certain other locals went to digital simply because DT was too much work, too expensive, and indeed had a much lower success rate. But when DT is on target, inkjet can't touch it. ...
  3. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    I suspect he'll retire. Where he came up with all his money to begin with, I don't know, and would never ask anyway. But not everyone starts out with a 90K enlarger and 11K lens - in fact it doesn't...

    Re: Wide Lenses for 4x5 & 8x10: 90mm to 165mm

    The specific serial number span of the early defective 80 and 110 XL's has been published. I don't know the exact link; but it would be important to look up if contemplating buying one of these. I...
  5. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    I don't think he'd be the one. He's getting old, no doubt is having difficulty with bigger cameras like 8x10, and either unable or unwilling to transfer from Ciba once his remaining inventories of...
  6. Re: What Color Film are you using in your 8x10 to capture Fall Colors?

    The days of color film won't end as long as I'm alive myself. Yes it's getting awfully expensive in sheets, especially 8x10 (not bad in roll film version). But if a ten sheet box of 8x10 color chrome...
  7. Re: What Color Film are you using in your 8x10 to capture Fall Colors?

    Let me first of all state that my idea of "fall color" is not the stereotypical postcard one. Yes, here in California we have plenty of our own vivid yellows and reds, including classic aspen colors...
  8. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    Alan - It's hard to compare printable chromes from just web effective ones. Hopefully you'll start whittling on that stick soon. But it does appear you are getting comfortable with the restricted...
  9. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    Sergey - If I was young today and could afford it (which I certainly couldn't have when I was actually young), I would have jumped at the opportunity now available to cross back and forth over the...

    Re: Discussion on Tripod Heads for 8x10

    Not all tripods will accept a half-ball mechanism. They have to be designed for that to begin with. I have a large Feisol CF tripod that will accept one, and it's fairly affordable if I ever chose...

    Re: Deadly hike----Haz-Mat the cause?

    The dog dying too seemed a bit of a mystery. But it looks like a breed known for hip issues, might have been old and out of shape, or simply refused to leave them out of sheer loyalty. There are all...
  13. Re: More detail from internegative or digital negative ?

    Depends who does the interneg. If I make it myself, especially by contact, it's going to win hands down. If a commercial lab did it, like they once routinely did by optical means, I wouldn't be very...

    Re: Wide Lenses for 4x5 & 8x10: 90mm to 165mm

    Well, hardly a wide angle candidate, but since it somehow came up, the Fuji 600 C can do excellent things with 8x10 film. Good optics and excellent color correction, and "C" standing for compact...

  17. Re: If one is good 2 must be better. Durst 184 rebuilds

    There's noting "complicated" about Durst, Neil. They did offer a lot of options, including carriers, which spells out versatility and specificity rather than complication, although I will admit...
  18. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    Why would I freeze Delta 100 when I've already got a stash of the REAL deal in the freezer? - both speeds of TMax in 8x10. And why would I want to freeze any black and white film? - well, acquiring...
  19. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    Oh there can be real cobweb tangles transitioning from one film signature to another, especially if one is as demanding of hue integrity as I am. And the notion that everything can be post-corrected...

    Re: Wide Lenses for 4x5 & 8x10: 90mm to 165mm

    It's interesting how many of Kerry's "Future Classic" lenses I went for myself, prior to even knowing about his own list. But I neither need nor can afford them all.
  21. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    They're all different flavors as far as I'm concerned. I can certainly work with what only Kodak now offers in terms of CN sheet films, which are in certain ways the best ever. But Fuji 160NS had its...

    Re: Discussion on Tripod Heads for 8x10

    The best head is NO head. I gave up on them for view camera usage, especially 8x10, decades ago, and have never looked back. They're just redundant extra weight and increased vibration and wobble...

    Re: Wide Lenses for 4x5 & 8x10: 90mm to 165mm

    It's risky to go with generalizations. Not all CN films are the same in terms of contrast. For example, Ektar gives one about one stop more latitude either way versus most chrome films, but not...
  27. Re: Problem: Long Rail, Long Bellows... Is There a Solution to Use One Tripod

    Sorry, I not currently able to post pictures. Maybe in the future. But there are obviously a lot of analogous ideas on this thread.
  28. Re: What is about the right size for a dark cloth for a 4x5" camera?

    Depends on the weather and length of the camera with the bellows extended. Do you just need a darkcloth, or something larger that functions like a rain cover too? Since I am routinely outdoors, it's...

    Re: Inexpensive 4x5 field cameras

    For WA work exclusively, or up to "normal" focal lengths, non-folding wooden field cameras can be even lighter, and faster to operate, and more rigid. Ebony and Chamonix made some nice ones; but it's...

  33. Re: Does a new luxury 8x10 camera make sense in 2021?

    Bah humbug. Where I grew up we did grow and raise darn near everything we needed. It's was a hour's drive to the nearest sizable market, and that certainly wasn't a supermarket in any current sense. ...
