    Re: advice for a 8x10 setup for portrait

    Well, itís supposed to cover everything in the optical domain. If so, itís not that expensive.

    Very nice photo, Derek!
    But are you schlepping that humangus 8x10 Toyo everywhere? Do you need a forklift?

    Coverage of wide lenses

    I was looking for a wide lens (75-90-110) to use on my 4x5 camera, with more generous coverage. Are there any 8x10 lenses at such short focal lengths? What about wa lenses for the 5x7?
    Thanks

    Re: Print from 4x5 scanned tranny not sharp

    I saw top of the line drum scans and they were initially soft. However, they contained much info and detail. Next step was to sharpen the images and the results could rival any darkroom...

    Re: Epson v750 + Software package

    Can someone who scans with the V750 tell what size the files are? I couldn't find this info anywhere. For example, how big a 6x6 MF B&W negative, scanned with 16 bit will be?

    Thanks for the info. My question was more about why would someone prefer this over the more popular 5x7 or 8x10 formats. Are that many using glass plates in their cameras? The fact that camera makers...

    Re: Chucking it and going to DSLR?

    I did the opposite way - from DSLR to 4X5.
    Since before using DSLR, I was shooting mainly 35mm, I looked for new experiences and the 4x5 was the answer.
    The way I see it - I don't need many...

    1) The Aptus 5 is only 22M and is based on older technology. (The Hasselblad line doesn't include 22M anymore, that's why the Aptus price is low). When Sony offers their alfa 850 with 24M, questions...
