    Re: Digital IR

    Thanks, Peter.
    I'm using LR Classic 9.4, which others have found to be quite buggy. I suspect it's a video card problem, but there are so many bad things going on, it's hard to narrow it down....

    Re: Digital IR

    Wonderful work, everyone. Good to see a lively digital IR forum!
    I've been having lots of trouble with my LR and PS software, so I haven't produced much of anything IR.

    Re: Discussion on Tripod Heads for 8x10

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

    It's very much a matter of one's preference. On FF digital, I like 24mm lenses. When I had a Contax G, the 21mm was my go-to.
    My 210 is a Rodenstock Ysarex. Sharp and contrasty enough, and allows...

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

    A good 210 for 8x10 is indispensable, but expensive.
    A decent option is the older Fuji W-210.

    I tend to agree.
    The 3005 isn't meant to be filled, the label on the tank tells you how much solution to use.
    The sloshing of the solution is critical to success, so use less water for pre-rinse...
