  1. Re: Best 75mm / 90mm lens?......totally kidding, but not really...read on pls

    Yeah. Looks about 3/4 or so overexposed in the center. So, "Uh oh." Will have to look elsewhere for what to do I guess.
  2. Re: Best 75mm / 90mm lens?......totally kidding, but not really...read on pls

    Not to take this thread off topic so much as to recenter it on center filters: I finally had a chance to catch up on developing the other day with E6 and noted for the first time what may be a need...
  3. Re: 4x5 & 5x7 Negatives - Camera Scanning with Nikon D800E

    Using a very similar process, but a Nikon D750 (only 24MP), a Kaiser RS-1 copy stand (used it was cheap and reasonable), and Negative Supply's acrylic "glass" rather than anti-Newton ring glass...
  4. Re: Piezography: Talk me into/out of it

    Monitors: After Wednesday's conversation, I've been reading reviews of monitors and focusing on EIZO and BenQ. Yes, I also read the comments on B&H's site as a bead on real life.... and trying to...
  5. Re: Piezography: Talk me into/out of it

    Blind tests are just that. True also for digital shots: 24MP's vs. 42MP's.... most prints ain't gonna show it. Can't. And any picture that stinks with 24MP isn't fixed because I suddenly upgraded to...
  6. Re: Piezography: Talk me into/out of it

    Yes to the process. I think my objective is to bring the print produced closer to what I think I see on the monitor without running the trial and error bit with paper and ink - which gets expensive....
  7. Re: Piezography: Talk me into/out of it

    Good news: Epson SC P800 is working just fine. Amazing piece of hardware: Idled in Spring of 2019 after consultation with Walker Blackwell with the Epson color ink cartridges in place. ( I have a...
  8. Re: Piezography: Talk me into/out of it

    H2oman: Your experience is somewhat consistent with mine... in the WYSIWIG way. It works. It's expensive however to keep running paper and ink and adjusting that way. I think what Ken is recommending...
  9. Re: Black and white stabilizer with Tetenal E6

    FWIW, a few months back I corresponded with Freestyle about their E6 process - which btw is made by Photosys (with whom I also corresponded). This was the response to my inquiry on why Tetenal had 1...

    Re: Lightbox for film scanning

    If I may ask, what specific features in the Sony A7R4 describe the pixel shifting image making? I don't really see this in the Sony A7R4 specs so perhaps there is something in terms of features that...
  11. Re: DSLR Scanner: Camera Supports and Positioning

    Sure. Here: http://www.filmtoaster.photography/ If you want to buy a used one, let me know. I found it "okay" but your mileage may differ.
  12. Re: Developing Shanghai GP3 8x10 Film?

    Alan: Thanks for this. I have 100 sheets in my fridge, and am a fan of D23... so this is perfect info. Eager to give it a try. Hearing good things about Foma 100 and 200, too... but happiest with FP4...
  13. Re: Piezography: Talk me into/out of it

    Ken... amazing. Thank you. I'll give it a whirl. I think you'll be way past this by the time I get to it.... holidays, work, a new grand baby, etc.... the "shopping and looking stuff up" is easy....
  14. Re: Piezography: Talk me into/out of it

    Ken is right as rain on this subject.

    FWIW, the Lula forum has a number of posts on these HP printers. More on the Z9 replacement at this point, but quite a number on the Z3100 and Z3200. Worth a...
  15. Re: Piezography: Talk me into/out of it

    Sergey: IF you wouldn't mind my asking, HP Designjet is discontinued here and the replacements have an inkset cut to 4, 6 and at most 9 inks (mega priced units). Ebay has some. But there seems to be...
  16. Re: Piezography: Talk me into/out of it

    Ken's comments drove me to look up the HP Z printers. Read through Dan Wells's review of 4/2020 on "new" printers and he has good things to say on Luminous Landscape. Reports that the "head tech"...
  17. Re: Piezography: Talk me into/out of it

    H2oman: My printing with Piezo has been kind of "intro", but enough to see there's merit in pushing ahead. Some day I'll make the time to take a class. Boutwell will tutor on line with webex if...
  18. Re: Piezography: Talk me into/out of it

    Well.... yea.... "unless you have snow" ...which we mostly don't here. Especially like the first one with clumps of trees.
  19. Re: Piezography: Talk me into/out of it

    H20man: Love the simplicity. Folks over at Luminous Landscape have debated the on-going "need" for Piezography given the "improvement" in inkjet printers. The numbers of people who have printed with...
  20. Re: Piezography: Talk me into/out of it

    Yeah.... the monitor. The one I bought years ago ended up with general rather than just photo use. It wasn't the real thing, but good for the day. Need to upgrade that.
    I've used only the default...
  21. Re: Piezography: Talk me into/out of it

    Let me add a question that perhaps Ken or someone else can answer.

    Yes, I've printed piezography on a P600 (12-inch max if you allow for a border), and it's good. Hard to judge whether it's...
  22. Re: Lightening the non-load: Dispose of Metz Mecablitz SCA300 or keep?

    Dunno. Will check in the morning. Thanks. I do know I bought it as described: "dry cell battery and charger" which probably means it is a nicad and ain't the lead wet cell. Gels came later I think....
  23. Re: Lightening the non-load: Dispose of Metz Mecablitz SCA300 or keep?

    Right. Went back and looked more closely. It is a 60-CT-4 and the battery brick that goes with it. Have unit to link it to a Rolleiflex, but not sure what I'd need for a LF Chamonix 45F-2... but...
  24. Re: Lightening the non-load: Dispose of Metz Mecablitz SCA300 or keep?

    Ic-Racer: Not throwing away... just looking at clearing out the "attic" so to speak.
    All: So yeah... the thing puts out a boat load of light. Big light... big piece of hardware. And yes, prices for...
  25. Lightening the non-load: Dispose of Metz Mecablitz SCA300 or keep?

    In the spirit of "Big Boy... should he stay or go", I'm wondering whether this piece of hardware - acquired for an old MF camera - is worth the bother with LF gear, or I should just stick with the...
  26. Re: Reciprocity and reducing development

    GoodoldNorm: Thank you for asking this question! Precisely what's needed at this point since I've just been shooting the equivalent of late day (flat narrow dynamic range), post sunshine shots with...
  27. Yuletide Gift: When asked... do you list anything photography related?

    Someone asks, 'What'd you like?" Photo books work. Film works. More than that... it's a struggle. Curious how you folks deal with it? I'm told a good pair of boots, a warm pair of socks... maybe new...
  28. Re: Any RRS Tripod Owners with a Series 4?

    I have a RRS 3 but haven't tried the 4. I talked with RRS before ordering and they seemed to push the 3 over the 4. Suggest you call them as well if these are the only 2 tripods you're looking at....

    Re: instant film for 4x5?

    Dann: I'm in for the Instax Wide. At $130 and relatively cheap film... it will do the trick for my needs. Good luck!
  30. Re: Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweig

    Kiwi: My Fuji 90mm SW is an F/8 and officially clocks in at 410 grams or so plus lensboard, cable release etc. Not the fattest lightbulb in the knife drawer, but not the slightest either. Good for...
  31. Re: Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweig

    Greg: Yes, I"d love a Ries, too. Very throwback. Solid. Drooled over that.... but long ago sprung for a RRS, leveling base and mount the geared Manfrotto to that. What I like about the geared head is...
  32. Re: Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweig

    Guys:

    Thank you all. Love the back-and-forth and appreciate the passion. Wow! and do you folks have some! This is great. Thanks especially for all the advice, and willingness to stick your...
  33. Re: Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweig

    Folks: Okay... sounds like for this camera, the Fuji C 450mm is probably a bust. I've shot the T 450, but only inside. No wind. :)
    Bernice: So are you suggesting even 300mm is too long for a folder...
  34. Re: Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweig

    Alan:

    Thank you. Advice accepted. By a lot, I mean "yes I had some." I had front rise, and a very little forward tilt (down). It was easier to get the top of the tree so it wasn't cut off. As a...
  35. Re: Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweig

    Ken: Yes, exactly, and thank you for simplifying the problem: It's not the lenses.... it's all the other stuff. For now, can't say I'll pick up another larger size... as I'm having my hands full with...
  36. Re: Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweig

    Thanks guys. This is helpful. So far, I think I'm going to just hit the gym and pack the Fuji 400T only when needed, but keep an eye peeled on some of the lighter bretheren. Some of these aren't...
  37. Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweight

    I've a Fujinon 400T which weighs a megaton. I hear the 450mm is light, small, etc. but also rare and frankly for backpacking looks likely to need an extension board for my Chamonix 45F-2... so the...
