    Re: soft focus lens for architecture

    I have a 200 Imagon that covers 8x10 wide open. I know it isn't supposed to cover it, but it does. There may be other lenses out there that are wider.

    Re: Imagon Predecessor from 1891

    I've shot a lot with my Imagons and really like the quality. That said, I shoot them wide open with no holy slide.

    Re: Panoramic Head Recommendations

  6. Re: Me, my inexperienced butt, and the backcountry

    I stay in motels and usually load/unload film in a closet (bathroom) at night. I wouldn't worry about image loss, & if you are, give the film an added density of 1/3 stop.

    Re: Effective Drypacks

    Get a small dehumidifier and keep it in the breathable hood. I have one in my darkroom and it works great.

    Yes
  9. Re: pros/cons of two different lenses at the same focal length?

    Umm, the bellows are used for focusing the lens. This is focusing the lens. If one moves the camera closer to a subject, the bellows are extended & the image is larger -- not because the bellows...

  25. Re: Alternative to traditional pinhole on an 8x10

    I determined the focal length of my pinhole lenses, compose with a "normal" lens of the same focal length, then swap it out for the pinhole lens. Works great.

    Re: Wollensak 6 1/4" infinity focus

    Depending on the lens design, your 5 1/4" could be accurate. And, like you said, I'd base my bellows factor on the 5 1/4" base.

    Enjoy your shooting.
