    Re: Stiff Majestic gear head - how to fix it?

    I have one of the super duty Majestic Tripods and I love the head. Works just fine with the 8 x 10 Kardan Bi although I normally use it with smaller stuff like my Fuji GX680. I think it's the only 6...

    Anyone ever repaires an iris clamp?

    I opened the clamp a bit too far and the opening "key" seems to have gotten disengaged from the iris itself so now it's completely open and the key just sort of spins around but the clamp doesn't...
  4. Re: Advice Needed - Should I ship my LF lenses to get them CLA'ed before selling them

    Re: Going Long on 5x7

    I use the Nikkor 360/500/720 set. I've always been in the "avoid the tele" camp - until I tried the Nikkor. Outstanding sharpness and contrast. My only quibble is that the 720 is f/16. It works well...

  9. Re: Scanning 8x10 method Epson v850 super resolution lens

    Well, if you only use the middle 5 or so inches of the negative I guess that will work, but you might want to think about cutting 8 x 10 down to two 4 x 10 pieces and using a 4 x 10 film holder. You...
  10. Re: Scanning 8x10 method Epson v850 super resolution lens

    Are you stitching two scans? If not how can you use the higher resolution lens for 8 x 10 when it only covers a band a little under 6 inches wide.

    Re: Chamonix Whole Plate Camera!

    It's a marvelous size. I often print to WP from other formats just because I like the feel of the prints in this size. I do have one WP camera and it's easier to deal with than 8 x 10.

  13. Re: Any telephoto (360mm or above) recommendations for a 4x5 (TK45S)?

    I have the Nikon 360/500/720 set and I'm completely satisfied with the sharpness. My only complaint is that focusing an f/16 lens (the 720) is a bit hard on my 80 year old eyes. I use the 360 and 500...
  14. Re: Making separation negatives from color positive sheet film

    I once tried to make screen printing "plates" by separation. I still suffer from the induced insanity. IIRC I was using a lith film of some kind. I really had no idea WTF I was doing but it was fun...
  15. Re: Should I get a center filter for my 65mm Nikon-SW f/4 & 90mm Sinaron-W f/6.8?

    I use a center filter on my 90mm Super Angulon. But then again I mainly use it on 5 x 7. I use it on 4 x 5 as well because - well, it's already on the lens.

    I have a 17 inch Epson P800 so the widest I would usually print is 16". I've done 16 x 20 -ish prints from 120 film that look fine. I don't usually print super large though - some 11 X 14 and a few...

  21. Re: What's considered "high altitude" when it comes to UV filters?

    How high is high? Good question. Tucson is around 2700 feet, which in and of itself isn't so high, but the amount of water vapor in the air can be really low - I think it's the skin capital center of...
