    I am trying to find some information on the camera pictured. The only clue I can find on the camera is the partial handle that seems to say Canada. I did get this from just outside of Ottawa...

    A daylight tray processor with a multilayer rubylith cover to allow development by inspection for ULF xray/ortho lith film. Maybe an attachable changing bag.

    Re: Negative dipole calculation

    Hi Dan, I would love to provide a link but the -315 mm lens is no longer on the site. It is very likely that I am mistaken but I will keep an eye out for a similar page. Kirk

    Hi Bob,

    Yes I am considering it. I understand the penalty of reduced detail and color fringing among other things. I plan to shoot bw so less of an issue and contact printing so detail is not as...

    Negative dipole calculation

    Hi,

    If I have a 10" lens and wanted to put a -315 mm dipole at the back, how would you calculate the new focal length? Or is it a straight subtraction or some kind of product formula? I assume...

    Actually, with foreign $$$ conversion, shipping and handling costs to Canada, it is more like $120 to find out. And no camera to shoot it with if I did buy it.

    You are thinking too far ahead of me. I just wanted to get the camera down that low. I did not even consider how I will be focusing. No reflex finder that I know of. No plans to build...
  18. Re: How do you get an 8x10 to get a worms-eye view?

  20. Re: How do you get an 8x10 to get a worms-eye view?

    Dan, Thanks for the response. Interesting idea but one that I am not likely to use. Even at 90 degrees the camera is still quite far from the ground. I do not have a bottom center post screw.
