  1. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    Indeed. To each his/her own.
    And I'll post example shots of the Fuji L 300 asap.
  2. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    Good Covid focal length, I guess. And portrait FL preferences vary quite a lot. I couldn't go longer than 360, but some people like 420, 500 and longer.



    I had that lens, Andrzej, and liked it,...
  3. Re: New FLM Ultralight Tripod for 8x10 and smaller

    I wonder, too, but the leg section length was capped at ~32 inches, so flex must become a factor at around 40 inches (my guess).
  4. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    Handsome lens, snappy dresser. The life of the party.
    Can't say more until I see the film. :)
  5. Re: New FLM Ultralight Tripod for 8x10 and smaller

    Not yet, Steve. I'll have the exact figures late next week when the tripod arrives.
    The current CP22-S4 weighs 1.94 pounds, or 881g, so I'd expect the M2 to be in that neighborhood.
    Fewer leg...

    Re: Tripod for a folding 8x10

    Understood, Drew, and I mostly agree. And I wouldn't presume to compare the ultralight to a big tripod designed for LF use.

    However, I've found that using my current lightweight tripod - a...
  7. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    Thank you, Bernice. I think you may be psychic. :)

    I used it today, but it will be a while before I can share the photo with all of you.
    Nowhere to dry my film yet, and I'm in between scanners.

    Re: Tripod for a folding 8x10

    Yes, Drew, 5-pound tripods are the norm these days, they're even considered on the heavy side. I confess that I've used even lighter tripods to support my 8x10 and GX680 (which weighs more than my...
  9. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    Thanks, Drew! I’m eager to try the L lens.

    Re: Tripod for a folding 8x10

    There's definitely a need for big, heavy and stable tripods for 8x10 work.
    There's also a need for a lightweight, easy-to-schlep tripod that makes informal 8x10 sorties more enjoyable and less...

    Bernice, are you comparing two coated lenses (12" Ektar & 300mm Xenar), or is the Xenar uncoated?
  21. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    Thanks, Peter.
    My usual test is shooting in open shade first, then a second test with flash.

  22. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    Thanks, guys.
    Tracy, the Dagor didn't work for me, could've been a dud. It was very contrasty, but not in a good way.

  23. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    Yes, I found it too, Hugo. It was the Cooke. I had to sell it, there were a few good reasons to sell it, but now I'm trying to find a $300 version of a Cooke.

    What was wrong with the other lenses?...
  24. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    Maltfalc, I've looked at the Industar lenses for wet plate, but for film I wish there were a shutter option. I'd get one in a heartbeat.

    Bernice, thanks as always for your help. I need a lens in a...
  25. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    Thanks. The Fujinar 30cm was an early hopeful, but I haven't found it in a shutter, nor do I know if it ever found its way into a Shanel or Copal 3.
    I have the Fuji 250 f/6.7 for the shorter focal...

    Bill and Will, thanks, I'll consider anything.
    Will, I may have been at fault when I used the Heliar, or it may have been a dud. I'm open to it, but prices are no longer reasonable.

    Re: 150mm - 165mm for 4x10

    There's the Wollensak 6 1/4" f/12.5 which covers 8x10.
    A little longer, but the Fujinon-W 180 with inside lettering just covers 8x10.
    Consider the Schneider Angulon 165mm as well.
  33. Re: Smallish back pack for Technika + 2 lenses + 3 film holders??

    ProTactic is a very good bag for minimal equipment on medium-long hikes.
    In the same vein, the Tenba Axis (20L, 24L or 32L) is also excellent.
