  1. Re: Will a Sinar DB lens Work With a Sinar Copal Shutter?

    "Yes" to all the questions.
  2. Re: Rebuilding a Deardorff 11x14 Studio Stand

    Good tips, Randy. Thanks!
  3. Re: First Forey Into 8x10 Format/ Intrepid 8x10 Camera

    There are two of them. One has longer bellows than the other. Pre-WWII ones had a tripod block, but the ones after don't. They are good, solid cameras. I'm currently restoring one of these.
  4. Re: Rebuilding a Deardorff 11x14 Studio Stand

    Well, I've never work with steel. Heat it up and pound to shape? I do have two sections of cut off pipe from the stand. I could jigsaw out two pieces. The curves should be close, and maybe I...

    The recess for the shoe looks like this:

    I looks like a 1/4" thick piece about 1-5/8" x 2.25" and curved to fit the pipe should...
  6. Re: Rebuilding a Deardorff 11x14 Studio Stand

    I've done some 3d printing, but I'm not very impressed with durability, at least with the printers/materials I have access to. My plan was to use a good hardwood for the replacements, probably...
  7. Re: First Forey Into 8x10 Format/ Intrepid 8x10 Camera

    There's a tripod plate with a 2D, which you don't have to use if light weight is a priority.
  8. Re: First Forey Into 8x10 Format/ Intrepid 8x10 Camera

    No direct front tilt with a 2D. I don't have one anymore, and so I can't weigh it. They're quite light, and they're better built than an Intrepid.

    Re: Intrepid 8x10 experiences?

    The Intrepid uses Sinar-style boards, although they have to have rounded corners. I use a Sinar to Toyo field adapter from Ebay, as my 4x5 lenses are all on Toyo 110mm boards. (Toyo makes bigger...
  11. Re: First Forey Into 8x10 Format/ Intrepid 8x10 Camera

    You can get older, better built cameras cheaper, but you may have to do some refurbishing, which takes some skill and tools. For instance, I bought an Agfa 8x10 from the 1950s not that long ago for...
  12. Re: Rebuilding a Deardorff 11x14 Studio Stand

    Thanks, Randy! But please don't go to any Herculean effort. They shouldn't be too hard to make, if needed.

  14. Re: Rebuilding a Deardorff 11x14 Studio Stand

    I'm pretty sure that mine are the same as Jason's. There's a lever on each side of the sleeves that rides the columns that moves a cam on the inside, obviously to press a fitting against the...
  15. Re: Rebuilding a Deardorff 11x14 Studio Stand

    My stand was in good shape, but it had some rust on the bottom of the base. I also had some on a Century Centennial stand. These parts are black cast iron. What I've done is to clean them off...

  17. Re: LED UV Light Box: Build Your Own for Under $150

    Randy, thanks for the tip. I emailed them asking about color characteristics such as CRI. Hopefully, I'll hear back. They might be a good source of product for all sorts of photographic purposes. ...

    Michael, what's your process with hangers? I have a bunch but have never used them.

  22. Re: Where are the great shots? Am I a cynicist or a realist?

    I'm sure you're right about Gugenheim Fellowships or MacArthur Grants, and contemporary academic photography, but Enlightenment-style thinkers are hitting back in other areas, such as Steven Pinker...
  23. Re: Where are the great shots? Am I a cynicist or a realist?

    You're only a "true artist" if you make your living selling your art? I would call that being a professional artist. Isn't post-modernism itself getting a bit long in the tooth?

    This is a bit...

    Yes, the adapter plugs into the sata drive, and the ide cable plugs into the adapter. Your software looks like it should work fine formatting the new drive.

  32. Re: Camera confusion: Beginner Puzzles over Chamonix et al

    I've owned a Chamonix, and I've seen some recently. They are very nice cameras, much more rigid than the old woodies. But they are not as rigid/stable as the heavier metal cameras, such as a Toyo...

    That's a good plan, and it's certainly possible that your issue is caused by something else. Once quick way to check alignment is to level the base using the levelers. Now put a level on the...

  35. Re: Camera confusion: Beginner Puzzles over Chamonix et al

    Field cameras usually don't allow bag bellows. My Toyo 45AX doesn't. It works fine with a 90mm, which is similar to a 28mm lens in 35mm. You can gain some movement with a compressed bellows by...
  36. Re: Camera confusion: Beginner Puzzles over Chamonix et al

    A bag bellows allows extensive movements, i.e. rise, shift, tilt..., with wide angle lenses. A regular bellows works great for lenses in the middle of the range from slightly wide to longish.
