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

    Well, I went with the FLM CP30-L4 II 10X Carbon Fiber Series II Tripod. I emailed Ari at FLM and he was kind enough to give me - a poor, scrappy student - a great deal on the tripod. I'm really...
  2. Re: Can anyone recommend a sturdy tall carbon fiber tripod and ball head/pan-tilt hea

    So, I'm down to 3 (err, 4) tripod legs to consider, considering their low weight, height ability, and price. I've read through https://thecentercolumn.com to help aid in this process, but I'm still...
  3. Re: Can anyone recommend a sturdy tall carbon fiber tripod and ball head/pan-tilt hea

    Thanks for mentioning this!

    I should have also made it a point to ask you guys this: Do you guys recommend a pan & tilt head, a (good) ball head, or a geared head?

    I'm using a Linhof...
  4. Re: Can anyone recommend a sturdy tall carbon fiber tripod and ball head/pan-tilt hea

    So considering everyone's suggestions (thanks to all that commented/replied!) and my own further research, I'm wondering if the FEISOL CT-3441T Traveler Rapid Carbon Fiber Tripod and the Benro GD3WH...
  5. Can anyone recommend a sturdy tall carbon fiber tripod and ball head/pan-tilt head?

    Hi all,

    So I currently have a Slik PRO700DX which includes a pan/tilt head. I've had this tripod for about 4 years and it has served me well, BUT it is heavy and cumbersome. (I understand,...
  6. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    Ha! I use these religiously. They're on every lens I own.
  7. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    Hmm, so is the consensus on this forum to not use a UV filter in between the lens and center filter? (If I'm reading what Drew said correctly, it should, however, be fine to do this for non-wide...
  8. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    So, after waiting for a hapless few weeks, I pounced on a flawless Rodenstock E67/86 center filter that was packaged with a 75mm Sinaron-W f/4.5.

    My next question is: can I put a thin UV filter...
  9. Re: Any telephoto (360mm or above) recommendations for a 4x5 (TK45S)?

    Many thanks! I have a Linhof Technikardan 45S. According to the Linhof website, the Technikardan 45’s maximum camera extension (lens to film plane) is 485 mm.

    Weight is somewhat important, but...
  10. Re: Any telephoto (360mm or above) recommendations for a 4x5 (TK45S)?

    Since I already have the Nikon 300mm M f/9, which higher focal length would best round out my 65mm to 300mm set?

    Here are the lenses I have already. (It took me a long while to get these):
    -65mm...
  11. Re: Any tips on how to repair lenses with Balsam Separation?

    Whoa! Thank you so much for this! You just saved an otherwise flawless Bronica lens from probable destruction, as I was planning on boiling the “balsam separated” lens element in my effort to fix it...
  12. Re: Any tips on how to repair lenses with Balsam Separation?

    Theyíre Bronica GS-1 lenses, specifically the Zenzanon-PG 65mm F/4 and Zenzanon-PG 100mm F/3.5. The GS-1 and itís associated lenses were made sometime between 1983 and 2002, so itís safe to say they...
  13. Any tips on how to repair lenses with Balsam Separation?

    Hi all,

    So I bought two lenses suffering from Balsam Separation on the cheap that I would like to try and fix. Since they were bought cheaply, I’m not worried if I totally destroy them. The...
  14. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    Ah, I didn’t know this. At the same time, however, could it be possible that the engraved center filters from said camera reseller store are the damaged or heavily used ones purchased from a rental...
  15. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    Many thanks for clarifying this, I really appreciate it! I may actually want to try a 4x center filter, given what you’ve said. I do shoot a lot of architecture and landscape, so having an even...
  16. Re: Gregory Crewdson's 'An Eclipse of Moths'

    I just saw An Eclipse Of Moths at the Gagosian in LA this past Saturday and left feeling impressed, yet bemused. While his latest opus isn't Struthian in size, they are rather large, certainly his...
  17. Re: Any telephoto (360mm or above) recommendations for a 4x5 (TK45S)?

    I'm actually very curious about the Nikon 360/500/720mm Nikkor-T* ED set, but I worry that the convertible design may mean less sharpness than, say, the 450mm Fujinon C.

    So far I'm thinking either...
  18. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    Dan, where on earth were you able to get a Schneider CF III for less than $200?! That's amazing!

    By the way, I read your article on center filters from front to back. Thank you so much for...
  19. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    Believe it or not, I was at the main Samy’s branch (on Fairfax Ave.) and asked them about it two weeks ago. I was asked to leave my contact number and that someone should contact me shortly, either...
  20. Any telephoto (360mm or above) recommendations for a 4x5 (TK45S)?

    Hi all,

    Can any of you recommend any sharp telephoto lenses for my Linhof Technikardan 45S, specifically 360mm or above?

    I shoot color negative and transparency (Ektar/Portra & Provia/Velvia)...
  21. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    Hi all,

    So I contacted Igor Camera regarding their Heliopan 67mm center filters. They have two in stock, but according to the person who I spoke with over the phone, the barrel on both copies is...
  22. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Minimizing all stray light is essential, absolutely. I've made masks for my 4x5 and 6x12/6x17 (med. format) negatives and transparencies. When I scan my negs, I make sure to turn off all the lights...
  23. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Oh wow! I just got the Voigtlander MACRO APO-LANTHAR 110mm f/2.5. Paired with my new Sony a7R IV w/16-shot pixel shift (240mp), I'm finally getting drum scan quality scans. The manual focus with a...
  24. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    You guys are all awesome. I appreciate all the suggestions and recommendations. Another member here recommended a great site where I can get used Heliopan center filters.

    I was wondering if you...
  25. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Does anyone know if the Voigtlander MACRO APO-LANTHAR 110mm f/2.5 lens would be a “better” lens to use with my new Sony a7R IV for negative/transparency light box scanning, especially when utilizing...
  26. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    Hi Bob,

    I shoot both color negative and color transparency (Ektar, Portra 160/400, Provia, and Velvia, specifically).

    I definitely see falloff with my 65mm Nikon Nikkor-SW f/4, especially when...
  27. Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    So I have three wide angle lenses - a 65mm Nikon Nikkor-SW f/4, a 75mm Nikon Nikkor-SW f/4.5, and a 90mm Sinar Sinaron-W f/6.8. (I think all have a 67mm front attachment filter thread.)

    Should I...

  29. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Sandy, thank you so, so much! Yes, can you please send me the Dropbox folder?

    At first glance, it seems like the Fuji GFX 50r is a little sharper, with greater contrast, no?

    Believe it or not,...
  30. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Sandy, is there any way you could upload/send a sample of your test scans using the Sony a7R IV/75mm Apo Rodagon-D and the Fuji GFX 50R/120mm Pentax f/4 Macro?

    I'd love to see the difference...
  31. Re: Should I Drum Scan, X1 Flextight Scan, or use the Epson V850 w/Aztek Wet Mount Ki

    Which copy stand scanning combination yielded the best results in your opinion? The Sony a7R IV (w/16-shot pixel shift)/75mm Apo Rodagon D or the Fuji GFX 50R/120mm Pentax f/4 Macro?

    I'm very...
  32. Re: Help! Rear standard of my Linhof Technikardan 45S won't tilt. How can I fix this?

    Thank you all so much!

    Do you think that this is something I can fix myself, perhaps by using some lubricating fluid or something, or would that be a disastrous idea?
  33. Re: Which of my 5 LF lenses are worth keeping or worth upgrading?

    I have some news. Someone wants to sell me 5 immaculate Nikon Nikkor lenses for a very good price. I'm very close to purchasing the set, but before I do, I wanted to ask you experts a question or...
  34. Help! Rear standard of my Linhof Technikardan 45S won't tilt. How can I fix this?

    Hi all,

    So the rear standard of my newly acquired Linhof Technikardan 45S won't tilt.

    Here's an image of the rear standard so you can see what I'm talking about:

    Usually, to tilt...
  35. Re: Which of my 5 LF lenses are worth keeping or worth upgrading?

    Of course Bernice is right, and I agree.

    But it may also be pertinent that I wasted about $300 in film and processing using a - now independently confirmed by an LF photographer far more...
  36. Re: Which of my 5 LF lenses are worth keeping or worth upgrading?

    To anyone who has read Kerry Thalman's Future Classics guide and has/had any of his recommended lenses, what are your experiences with the lenses on his list?
  37. Re: Which of my 5 LF lenses are worth keeping or worth upgrading?

    EdSawyer, yeah, I was thinking about the Nikkor-T 360mm with the extra 500mm rear convertible. Do you have it? Is it a good lens?

    Anyway, to Corran's point, I do notice that the 65mm Nikon...
  38. Re: Which of my 5 LF lenses are worth keeping or worth upgrading?

    Well, I just sold my enormous 360mm Rodenstock Sironar-N f/6.8 (Multicoated) lens on eBay just yesterday. It was a good performer, but just way too massive and heavy to carry.

    That said, I wanted...
  39. Re: Can anyone recommend any backpacks/suitcases to transport my LF camera/lenses/gea

    Yeah, I've recently been looking at the f.64 BPX. How do you like it?

    So far, I'm seriously considering either the f.64 BPX or the Neewer 2-in-1 Rolling Camera Backpack Trolley Case.

    If I get...
  40. Can anyone recommend any backpacks/suitcases to transport my LF camera/lenses/gear?

    Hi all,
