    Re: Good light lens for 8x10

    The image circle of a 305mm G-Claron is 381mm. High as that is for a small lens, it's conservative. G-Clarons are known for their substantial coverage when stopped down.

    Doremus,

    Why the need to calibrate?

    I use a Beseler 45s head. I consider no filtration to be "grade 2," or "normal." To increase contrast, I add magenta without yellow, and to decrease contrast, I add...

  13. Re: Can anyone recommend a sturdy tall carbon fiber tripod and ball head/pan-tilt hea

    For Feisol, the difference between the 3441T and a 3372, is that the latter has the beefy legs. (37mm, versus 28mm.) That's something that I value. But, I also photograph with 8x10 on my tripod.
