    Virtually any camera repairman can do a CLA, that’s repair 101.

    Precision in Charlottesville, Pro in DC, Tempe in Phoenix can all do excellent CLAs.

    Re: 90 inch bellows - what is exposure?

    Rather then worrying about focal length, bellows extension it is much easier to learn about magnification.

    1:1 lifesize - open 2 stops.

    Depth of field is also dependent on the size of the final print and the distance that that image will be viewed from.
  33. Re: What lens to get for most shallow depth of field on 4x5?

    No, it depends on your lens, your aperture and the magnification. Not with film size.

    You can also manipulate DOF by your image placement, pulling the subject away from the background or from the foreground, or both.

  35. Re: What lens to get for most shallow depth of field on 4x5?

    Are you taking into consideration that 35mm produces a long, skinny image and 45 produces a short, squat image? 57 would produce an image cropping more like 35mm.
