  1. Re: Deardorff 8x10 lens board mounting problem.

    The lip is too thick for the intended slot, either sanding wrapped in a wood block or a straight metal file and a bit of elbow grease will take care of it.

    I strongly recommend an E-cargo bike set up. There are two advantages with it, one you can really line the bottom of the cargo space to cushion all the bouncing around the road induces. Two you can...

    Re: 4x10 how does it work and what do I need

    Yeah, it's somewhat more rare in a typical field camera design, unlike in more modular studio platform like a Sinar, where the format change option is part of its design.

    Re: 4x10 how does it work and what do I need

    Wisner Technical Field had a 4x10 back that is interchangeable with the 4x5 back, these days Chamonix has a 4x10 back for its 4x5 H1 system.

  12. Re: New FLM Ultralight Tripod for 8x10 and smaller

    Wow, I would be very curious, at 22mm that is thinner than a typical 2 series Gitzo, and with two sections only, I wonder if flex might become an issue.
  13. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    I tend to favor a narrower view, and a bit more space between me and my subject, hence I went with the 420mm version of the L, and I like it a lot. Really gentle rendering at wide open and sharp till...

  15. Re: Elmar 135mm: Will it cover 4x5? LSM to Copal adapter?
