    Re: Toyo field 810m

    True and very good instruction for proper use of the bail back and holder insertion; it’s what I do every time I make a picture. I never said that’s when I have an issue.
    We both solved the problem...

    Re: Toyo field 810m

    I've been using the 810MII for 6 months and really enjoy using it. Very intuitive to use in the field and the fine rear focus is silky smooth. I do have one small gripe: I wish there were (2) tripod...
  4. Re: Which wood for a Chamonix F1 is better ... Teak or Maple?

    I think a lot depends on what color hardware the wood will be matched with. I think the maple with black is a bit too contrasting for my taste. I have the teak with gun metal grey hardware; it's a...
  5. Re: 150mm (ish) Lens Recommendations? Graflex Super Graphic

    Fujinon 135mm is a great inexpensive lens. I keep one on my supergraphic and have no complaints as it can easily handle any movements I can dish out with the camera. I have the older "inside...

    Re: Horseman Board on Norma?

    Could be that the Norma has the twisted fiber/ yarn like light seal. Maybe this is just enough to not allow the board to seat just right. I too have had some trouble in the past trying to fit...

    Re: Fussy lens or sharp lens for this project?

    I actually like that the car came through the frame. It forces the eye to the static building that's in focus. It also seems to convey the theme of time passing the old, out dated theater by. Maybe...

    Re: New 8x10 camera review

    What I find really great about this camera is not the features it has or its price really, it's the fact that someone in 2014 has decided that it makes good business sense (due to demand) to start...

    Has anyone used or have any experience with this tripod head? Looks like it could be a good cheaper alternative to the sinar head. Outside of the long handles it looks like it could be a good head!

  26. Re: Routing a precision 'ledge' for GG in mahogany, which bit type?
