  2. Re: Why am I getting unexposed area on 4x5 sheet film?

    A while ago I eschewed the loupe in favour of a pair of powerful +5.5 reading glasses that cost only 8.95 including P&P on eBay (item # 271669873654). These make it easy to check all the...

    Re: Trying to decide on a 90mm Lens for 4x5

    Yes I was mistaken about the image circle for 5x7, thank you for the correction. The 90mm does allow movements with 4x5. I've used mine for some years now both with and without movements. However,...

    Re: Trying to decide on a 90mm Lens for 4x5

    None of them but then again I'm mainly working in the landscape. I use a Schneider f6.8 90mm Angulon. Very low cost. Weighs very little. Great coverage (5x7 with no movements).

    Re: Focusing/composing and being farsighted
