    Another myth. TTH introduced this type of lens in 1931 for the 3 strip Technicolor process. Lenses occasionally surface on, e.g., ebay.com.
  5. Re: Cambo Super - pack down and pack options?

    Remove the bellows, rotate the standards 90 degrees so the rail and they are coplanar and the camera will fit in a briefcase or suitcase.

    You're not wrangling about the physics and I didn't blame the quote on you. I blamed Rodenstock's marketers.
  7. Re: Best 75mm / 90mm lens?......totally kidding, but not really...read on pls

    I meant specific lenses. 35/4.5, 45/4.5, 53/4.5 and 75/4.5 Biogons for, respectively, 6x6, 6x7, 6x9 and 4x5.

    Your R'stock quote is marketing fluff. I just looked at the "relative light fall of...
  8. Re: Best 75mm / 90mm lens?......totally kidding, but not really...read on pls

    You're probably thinking of f/4.5 Biogons. One, the 75/4.5, covers 4x5. Big heavy expensive lens.
  9. Re: Nikkor-T 360mm / 500mm / 720m: 500mm at full aperture with 4x5 film, how good?

    Yes and yes. The lens' back focus is ~ 85 mm. I mean, it is a telephoto lens.
  10. Re: Nikkor-T 360mm / 500mm / 720m: 500mm at full aperture with 4x5 film, how good?

    Bernice, my 12"/4 TTH telephoto, ex-AGI F.139, doesn't quite agree with you. I've never tried it on 4x5, which the VM says it just covers. It seems to be the longest lens that works comfortably on...

    If you shot a 135 on 4x5 you absolutely positively shouldn't need a CF. The corners will be down 3/4 stop from the center, or the center up 3/4 stop from the corners.

    Adam, if you are still using a Cambo SC -- I've completely lost track of what you have -- a bag bellows will cost less that the 115 of your dreams.

  22. Re: 360mm Gerogon Enlarging lense? Opinions Please

    Hmm. The Apo-Gerogon is an f/9 w/a process lens for small process cameras. Its recommended operating range is 1:5 to 1:1. The Componon-S Drew suggested is half a stop faster.
  23. Re: Voigtlander Apo-Skopar w/ aperture ring AND waterhouse stops??

    Jim, I'd like to agree with you, Acme-speak notwithstanding, but the shutter's indicated high speed is 1/200. Self-cocking Ilex shutters' top speed is 1/100.

    Well, if you want really long exposures. Or poorly-timed short ones.

    Brand? Leiss or Zeica.

    Remember, NJ is the state of exits and abrasion.
  39. Re: Diffraction. When does it really matter with LF?

    focal length/entrance pupil is dimensionless.
  40. Re: Diffraction. When does it really matter with LF?

    But it isn't affected by focal length. Effective aperture, a dimensionless number, is what matters.
