    Need to replace my Perfection 4870

    Mates,

    My 4870 is on its last legs and I want to replace it before it gives up its ghost completely.

    I need to be able to scan negatives up to 8x10 and of course prints.

    Suggestions...
  5. Re: Question about old style Arca Swiss rail

    Thanks Dave,

    That was my initial thought, but the rail seemed to be a single piece. Until I actually loosened the bolts and lo and behold. That's how well machined these parts are.

  6. Question about old style Arca Swiss rail

    I'm selling one of my older Arcas, and a prospective buyer has asked me what the function of the knobs on the vertical side of the rail is (see attached picture). The knobs are attached to a bolt...

    Re: Origins of the Sunny 16 Rule?

    Now that you mention it, I realize that whenever I've used the "rule," I've always fudged toward overexposure as well. In other words, even though the rule is sunny 16, in actual practice, I've...
  9. Re: 1st LF 4x5...newbie alert (Chamonix 45N-2 vs Shen Hao HZX-IIA)

    Welcome Aaron. There are a gazillion "what camera should I get?" threads in the forum where you'll find lots of feedback on the cameras you are thinking of. I haven't used either, so I don't have...

    Re: Origins of the Sunny 16 Rule?

    Seems to me that being within one stop is pretty good for a rule of thumb. Most film can tolerate this range of underexposure. People swear by it because it works. I don't know that anyone uses...

    Re: Found Photographs

    That's a touring car from the early 20s. Very hard to identify, because it was a popular body style and many had a very similar appearance. To me, it looks a lot like a 1923 Oakland 6 Touring, but...

    Every physical object is a burden in one way or another. But you're talking about the equivalent of two or three pairs of shoes. Methinks the burden is in your mind, and I'm not sure throwing the...
  21. Re: Need expert advice- best light weight folding field camera?

    Based on what I've seen of your work and what you say you're looking for, getting anything other than a Crown or Speed Graphic would be nuts. If you want candid shots, you're going to need something...

    Re: C41 developing / negative marks

    I would say a water stain. If you haven't had problems in the past using tap water, I doubt that's the culprit. I recommend switching to flexicolor. I know what photoguy says, but Kodak officially...
