    Re: Nikkor-SW 75mm f / 4.5 on Chamonix 45F2

    75mm will work easily on the Chamonix. I have used 47 and 58mm on one. Focus should be easy. I assume you are using a dark cloth. The best answer will be your own with some usage of the lens.

    I have two aluminum 055 tripods. It will work fine for most typical 4x5 cameras and even most 8x10 cameras. They are heavier than more expensive carbon fiber options.

    Eric, I was up in Blue Ridge recently and I saw a print in a gallery of Helton Creek falls. Iconic, of course, but it was mirrored left-right! Very jarring, as I know that waterfall well.

    Re: 4x4 filter on 360mm Symmar-S?

    Hard disagree. I believe It's perfectly reasonable to standardize on a filter size for a given lens kit. I dare say it's fairly common for current 2022 users of view camera lenses as well as 35mm/120...

    That lens should have so much IC that whatever you cutoff will be irrelevant unless you've used crazy amounts of rise or something.

    The early 55 does take 95mm. As do the 55-100mm and 90-180mm zoom lenses. Oh and the 500mm f/5.6 tele. I own and use all of these.
