    Re: Chamonix Camera Rental Services

    I think it is a great idea and can help folks determine if LF is for them as well as how they like the Chamonix camera. In addition to the matter of lenses (they may not have any) there may also be...

  4. Re: Canham MQC 57 User experiences and comparisons ?

    For some perspective, I have owned the Canham 5x7 Wood Field, the Canham 4x5 DLC and the Canham 5x7 MQC. The 5x7 MQC is the only one I have now as it hit my sweet spot. I also have the 4x5 reducing...

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    I think it would be interesting to bring out the yellow tones even further, in contrast with the grayish rock.

    Re: New to LF - First shot - Focusing

    If you are just getting started and want to check the accuracy of your focus, don't stop down to f/32. Shoot near wide open, like f/8 to ensure the focus in the shot is what you focused on. And...

    Re: Epson V850 Pro Scanner and 5x7 film & other

    I have the Epson V750 scanner and use a simple 5x7 negative holder made out of two pieces of mat board - it works well for me.

    Re: the "best" 5x7 Camera

    The Canham motorized 6x17 back is a great piece of engineering - and the best rollfilm back I've worked with. It does take some practice to get the hang of loading the film, but after that it's just...

    Re: the "best" 5x7 Camera

    I stopped buying LF cameras after I got the Canham 5x7 MQC. Then I added the Canham 617 rollfilm back and also the 4x5 back adapter. I've used lenses from a 75mm to 360mm with the same bellows. So...

    Re: Landscape 5x7: Chamonix 57N3 or 45H-1 ?

    The Canham 5x7 MQC is an excellent camera too - very adjustable, portable and adaptable.

    Re: a fake Topcor 90mm f5.6 (Horseman)?

    Well, that shutter is not the right one for the lens, but I doubt that the front element is a "fake." Since the shutter is not right for the front element, the rear element could also be mismatched...

    Re: Best 4x5 camera to accommodate a 65mm lens?

    I have used a 65mm lens on a Horseman 45FA, and used the drop bed feature, but it was a bit dicey. And I've used a 75mm lens on a 5x7 Canham MQC without too much trouble. Just slid the front and...

    Re: Best 4x5 camera to accommodate a 65mm lens?

    It will be easier with a camera without a fixed front bed, so a Canham 4x5 DLC, with normal or bag bellows.

  19. Re: Shooting 4x5 panoramic images...looking for forum wisdom

    Use a 6x12 rollfilm back on 4x5, or upgrade to a 6x17 rollfilm back on a 5x7 camera. Shooting multiple 4x5 shots and stitching will have mixed results perspective-wise, while shooting 120 rollfilm...

    Here's something of interest for comparison - a 75mm Nikkor SW on a 5x7 Canham MQC with the 617 rollfilm back. No center filter, but compensated for (lightly) in Photoshop.

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    The greater sharpness in the Howtek scan makes a HUGE difference in tonal and object separation. That is the main barrier to getting a great scan from the Epson - sharpness.

    Re: Going Wide on 5x7

    A 90mm Super Angulon is my normal wide angle for 5x7, but I have used a 75mm Nikkor-SW occasionally with the knowledge I'll have fall-off to compensate for later.

  32. Re: Disastrous Consequences (solved: fog with Intrepid lensboard)

    Designing the front standard to use a "common" existing lens board size (e.g. Technika) would be my suggestion. They are common, easily available, and interchangeable with other 4x5 cameras.
