    Re: Velostigmat Series II; Info and Images

    I have the Ilex Paragon version of the Series II, it's a 12-inch lens with adjustable diffusion.
    Removing the limiting screw on that lens is easier than described for the Wollensak lenses. On the...

  4. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    Bernice, are you comparing two coated lenses (12" Ektar & 300mm Xenar), or is the Xenar uncoated?

    Thanks, Peter.
    My usual test is shooting in open shade first, then a second test with flash.

    Thanks, guys.
    Tracy, the Dagor didn't work for me, could've been a dud. It was very contrasty, but not in a good way.

  7. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    Yes, I found it too, Hugo. It was the Cooke. I had to sell it, there were a few good reasons to sell it, but now I'm trying to find a $300 version of a Cooke.

    What was wrong with the other lenses?...
  8. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    Maltfalc, I've looked at the Industar lenses for wet plate, but for film I wish there were a shutter option. I'd get one in a heartbeat.

    Bernice, thanks as always for your help. I need a lens in a...
  9. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    Thanks. The Fujinar 30cm was an early hopeful, but I haven't found it in a shutter, nor do I know if it ever found its way into a Shanel or Copal 3.
    I have the Fuji 250 f/6.7 for the shorter focal...

    I forgot the Dagor, I did have one for a while, but found it too harsh-looking.

    Bill and Will, thanks, I'll consider anything.
    Will, I may have been at fault when I used the Heliar, or it may have been a dud. I'm open to it, but prices are no longer reasonable.

    Looking for some suggestions on an affordable 300mm lens to use for 8x10 portraits....

    Re: 150mm - 165mm for 4x10

    There's the Wollensak 6 1/4" f/12.5 which covers 8x10.
    A little longer, but the Fujinon-W 180 with inside lettering just covers 8x10.
    Consider the Schneider Angulon 165mm as well.
  17. Re: Smallish back pack for Technika + 2 lenses + 3 film holders??

    ProTactic is a very good bag for minimal equipment on medium-long hikes.
    In the same vein, the Tenba Axis (20L, 24L or 32L) is also excellent.

    Re: Wehman 8x10 Front Rise

    No, not worried, I can adapt almost anything to my needs. But if the lens diameter is larger than the front standard, I'm not sure what I'd be able to do.
    I think it'll be fine, actually.
