    Re: Use 4x5 Beseler for smaller film?

    Bob,

    Of course, you are right about PPR here in Atlanta being a place to buy camera gear. But I just don't think of them as a place to go for used gear.

    How are you going to focus? It would seem to me that you would need a longer piece that has a setting for fully open which would allow one to focus.

    Re: The Gregory Crewdson film is coming!

    Thanks, but most likey there would be no interest because I am not a "process artist", I just get the job done... quietly and with no crew.
