    Re: 85b filter with B&W film?

    I have. It works. Be sure to add 1/3 stop since the B&W film's ASA is for daylight & is 1/3 stop slower for Tungsten.

    Re: Teach me about Lens Design

    I'd look into the Imagons. I have two of them, a 200mm & a 300mm. The amount of diffusion depends on the disk that is used. Love them!

    Re: question about stacking square filters

    Meter a gray card through the filters to get your compensation. If you have a meter on the 67, put the filters on and meter through the lens. When I was shooting cinema, I stacked as many as 9...

    Re: soft focus lens for architecture

    I have a 200 Imagon that covers 8x10 wide open. I know it isn't supposed to cover it, but it does. There may be other lenses out there that are wider.

    Re: Imagon Predecessor from 1891

    I've shot a lot with my Imagons and really like the quality. That said, I shoot them wide open with no holy slide.

    Re: Panoramic Head Recommendations

    You can use any head to do this. You need to find the nodal point of the lens (it's not always in the center of the barrel). Then you need to get that point over the center of the rotation point. ...

    Re: Using a recessed lensboard backwards

    Also, you could use a diopter.
  13. Re: Me, my inexperienced butt, and the backcountry

    I stay in motels and usually load/unload film in a closet (bathroom) at night. I wouldn't worry about image loss, & if you are, give the film an added density of 1/3 stop.

    Yes
  16. Re: pros/cons of two different lenses at the same focal length?

    Umm, the bellows are used for focusing the lens. This is focusing the lens. If one moves the camera closer to a subject, the bellows are extended & the image is larger -- not because the bellows...

  32. Re: Alternative to traditional pinhole on an 8x10

    I determined the focal length of my pinhole lenses, compose with a "normal" lens of the same focal length, then swap it out for the pinhole lens. Works great.

    Re: Wollensak 6 1/4" infinity focus

    Depending on the lens design, your 5 1/4" could be accurate. And, like you said, I'd base my bellows factor on the 5 1/4" base.

    Enjoy your shooting.
