  1. Re: Backpacks for 4X5 with 3 small lenses and Chamonix F2

    Roberto: Looks pretty sweet! Not far off what I've got set up. Will send a pic tomorrow. Smaller pack, so I think I'll be carrying the tripod in my hands... but otherwise... good. Take care of...

    Re: Filters and Digital Age

    Hey CDK, thanks. Call it a semi-fossil (me) digs up a fossil (this post). I'm using a Polarizer, YG, Y#8, Orange and Red#23 for B&W, and may get a color film filter or two if I really go crazy (which...

    Re: how old are we?

    Hey Bob... think about next year the way one my clients described it when she was turning 80. She'd say, "I'm having my 5th Sweet Sixteen party!" I loved it then, and clearly still do. Congrats on...
  5. Re: Lee Filters - anyone using these or Cokin et al squares?


    For digital, I suspect your're right. However, for B&W film, I don't see one of those three offering B&W contrast filters. Not one.
    Each of them makes a Lee or Cokin look inexpensive...

    Re: Filters and Digital Age

    Wow. Twelve years later... I'm still a guy who likes (grew up on) filters for B&W in particular. Get it right in the camera, STILL less to do in post. Get it wrong in camera? Well that's why we take...

    Re: Filter fog?

    My favorite source for "new to you" filters is Tim Rice at:
    He's my go to guy, and prices are very reasonable. I'm currently waiting to hear back from him, but...
  8. Lee Filters - anyone using these or Cokin et al squares?

    I've got the 67mm rounds, but beginning to play with Lee's squares. Rounds are definitely more portable in a way. Squares allow multiples and grads and polarizers, and that has some appeal (until it...
  9. Re: Backpacks for 4X5 with 3 small lenses and Chamonix F2

    I manage to get to the 67mm filter - with adaptor rings. Do you use round filters, or a filter holder with squares? I'm kind of in-between. Round pack small, but you need the square for a grad......
  10. Re: Backpacks for 4X5 with 3 small lenses and Chamonix F2

    I'm kind of set on adpating what I have. I've raided an old DOMKE backpack for the inserts and putting them into the Tenba bag. Fact is that MOST folks out there have no idea what a photographer's...
  11. Re: Backpacks for 4X5 with 3 small lenses and Chamonix F2

    Pete: Great advice. My Tenba loads both from the top (I never really use that) and the back... inside. This works as I lay it down on the outside and open the part that rides on my back and dirt...

    Looking at 5/23 as the first prospective opportunity now - following CDC guidelines and expectations for 6 to 8 weeks. Thinking it may be moved to a local coffee shop where I've been evenings for...
  14. Backpacks for 4X5 with 3 small lenses and Chamonix F2

    So I seem to have a decent size backpack for day use. I'm afraid the F64 would be mega sized and I'd knock around and overload it. But I'm carrying a meter (actually 2 - with the Sekonic hung around...
  15. Re: Photobackpacker Cascade Film holder

    This past weekend's shooting, I'm wondering whether I've got the right handle on things or not. Name it, and it went wrong. I have a Tenba back pack... will look at dividers. Wonder about the F64...

    Me? I'll be 63 this year... and retirement's still a long haul from here. And yeah.... I share the "Beware the Ides of Sixty" caution. I had back surgery at 60, but was able to dance at my daughter's...

    Late Intro

    Late intro says it all. I've posted here a few times already. So I'm late posting an Intro... but I'm also at 62, late getting an intro to LF. Guess that's my M.O. 'cause I've even posted that I'd...
  21. Re: Adox CHS100II Yay or Nay?

    Find myself in the same boat. I think I'd also like to try the ADOX 20, but that's even more expensive. And then I have to wonder: What's it really going to do that I'm not already able to get with...

  23. Re: Question on New-to-4X5 Schooling

    Thanks! All good suggestions - especially to not buy gear I don't want to shoot anyway. Guess I hadn't looked at the Youtubes specifically on camera movements, but see there are indeed some ones that...
  24. Question on New-to-4X5 Schooling

    I've got a number of 4X5 books. The standards.

    Several detail the camera movements using a set of ABC blocks. And because of that - which of course is new-to-me like the whole of 4X5, I'm thinking...
  25. Re: Lab for scanning 4x5 central eastern US (VA)

    My experience with Dodge & Chrome is that they were great at developing film. Scanning... well... in all fairness, almost no one else is going to spend the time to do the job as well as you can do...

  31. Washington DC Metro LF Meetup

    Re: Proposed Northern Virginia/Washington, DC LF Meetup

    So I'm breaking this out of similarly titled thread to give a little more prominence to the idea of a meet-up.

    So there's been plenty of...
  32. Re: Northern Virginia/Washington, DC

    All right. So there's no report suggesting anyone met with anyone, so I will assume that no one met to shoot together, talk LF, share prints, make prints, etc.
    I'm going to suggest maybe instead of...
  33. Re: 4x5 Screen comparison (Intrepid, Chamonix, Maxwell)

    Thanks for all these posts. Interesting that Chamonix made the modified clamps. Direct contact with Hugo for these?
  34. Re: 4x5 Screen comparison (Intrepid, Chamonix, Maxwell)

    THanks for posting this. These are different screens on the back of your Chamonix? Which is easiest and most accurate to work with? I've used Maxwell screens on 2 MF cameras with good success. I'm...
  35. Simple Q for LF newby: Lens shade (trad 35mm type) vs. Compendium Lens Hood

    There's a world of difference in cost. Coming from 35mm and MF, I've been largely an on-lens round screw-in filter thread mounted lens shade type of guy. These are cheap. The Compendium Lens...
