    Re: A camera-themed HABS image

    This is a great HABS image by Marvin Rand he did around 36+ surveys for HABS. There are HABS images by Julius Shulman (LA City Hall) and even Balthazar Korab but their names are not always keyword...
  2. Re: Cambo 4x5...how to know how wide you can go

    Adam, your camera has a rotating 4x5 back that adds to the distance inside the camera. If you get the non-rotating 4x5 back you'll gain a few millimeters. Bag bellows will definitely help. If you...
  3. Re: Cambo 4x5...how to know how wide you can go

    Here's my heavily modified HABS-HAER-HALS camera with a front standard that utilizes the NEW-style double lock knob on the side and the shift lock from an even older 1960s era SuperCambo with the...
  4. Re: Cambo 4x5...how to know how wide you can go

    BTW, one on the (many) cameras Julius Shulman used was a wide angle version of the Calumet 4X5 CC402 (with spacers offsetting the front standard rearward) Like this one at KEH:

  5. Re: Cambo 4x5...how to know how wide you can go

    OR you can go wider if... you can get your hands on the OLD Cambo "double lock" standards.

    That's what I have on my 4x5/5x7 Cambo custom HABS camera. Since a large proportion of HABS/HAER...

  8. Re: 4x5 & 5x7 Negatives - Camera Scanning with Nikon D800E

    Glad you liked it. It works well for me and it's very fast compared to scanning on a flatbed. I'm sure there is a point where a scanner would show a better result, but I imagine that is somewhere...

  10. Re: Requirements and standards for HABS/HAER photography

    Hi Kirk,

    Re: soft focus lens for architecture

    I got a 120mm "Wollason Meniscus lens" from Reinhold Schable in Washington. I'll send photos soon. It's a very simple clean setup. I need to mount on a Cambo board and experiment.

    Re: soft focus lens for architecture

    No the edges can be wonky. It might be something that gets repurposed from 6x9 or 6x12 medium format. Or even a lens without a front or rear element that exhibits a certain funk.

    soft focus lens for architecture

    What's the widest soft lens for that covers 5x7? Or 4x5 with movement. I'm toying around with doing some photos that are the opposite of documentary HABS super-sharp, maximum depth work. I used to...

    Current Large Format Workshops 2020.

    I recently did a HABS project on 5x7 and found that my 240mm f9 Fujinon A (silver-ring, Copal 0 shutter, serial #521594) does get unsharp around the outer edges of the image circle. I'd say about and...

    They aren’t asking.

  30. Re: You (Yes, You) Should Donate to the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS)

    Field Camera Wide angle issues

    One thing to keep in mind (for people finding this thread in the future) is that wide angle lenses are very unforgiving from an alignment and focus standpoint; less than 1mm makes a difference. As...

  36. Re: Wista VX or Linhof Master for 72mm to 240mm architecture.

    Is this something that required you to pull out the rear standard for enough flange distance or can you accomplish 90mm infinity focus with the rear tight to the body?
  37. Re: Wista VX or Linhof Master for 72mm to 240mm architecture.

    And I was just in Inverness last year. Always too early, or too late.
    I could see the advantage of the top tripod thread in Scotland... the bed makes a nice roof to keep the rain off the lens. ;-)
