  1. Re: Bergger pancro 400 in bergspeed: Unseen base fog

    Sounds a lot like the old Kodak Royal X Pan film. Kodak rated it at 1200 in 4X5. I used some in the 80s and after testing rated at 1200 processed in Diafine. Base fog was very high but it printed...
  2. Re: New FLM Ultralight Tripod for 8x10 and smaller

    I think you would then want the original design as well . I don't think you would like the shorter one for most studio and urban work.

    Re: Looking for info 8x10 viewing hood

    Here is one I made from wet suit neoprene. I first made one for my 8X10 Deardorff held on by Velcro and then for my Toyo 810M, glued to a plywood frame that attaches like a Toyo accessory.

    Re: Advice on lense (comparing 2 options)

    My Master Technika came new with a 150mm Symmar-S in a recessed board so it could fold in the case. Perhaps the later 150 Sironar N could fold on a flat board. Bob Salomon would have the answer. I...

    A 270 tele is nice focused on the ground glass of a view camera when you get even closer, or even with a Technika which has plenty of bellows.
