    Re: What did you compose at Waters Edge?

    John, what an amazing photograph! So many details are just perfect. The layers of depth of course are what jump out, but the way the grass is cut, the lonely small trees both in the foreground and...

    Re: Trying Out An Arca D4 Tripod Head

    I also just purchase a Tenba soft pouch for the head. Most pouches seem to have a 4” throat which is too tight to fit over the knobs, but the Tenba is 4.5” so I suspect it’ll fit a bit better. The...

    Re: Trying Out An Arca D4 Tripod Head

    I’ve had a leveling base of some sort for quite a while so at this point it’s part of how I prefer to work. For a head with a top panning feature it might be unnecessary but I do think there are some...

    Re: Chamonix adjustment

    Hugo mentioned in his email to me that he has an H1 and the screw is a 5/64”. So yes, I’d say that the .035”/.89mm Allen wrench will work.

    Re: Converting a 4x5 Sinar X to an 8x10 P?

    I think it’d be easier to buy the rear P standard bearer for your conversion. Not sure what’s involved with the X modification, but buying the right part might be the path of least resistance.

    Yeah it’s definitely sub 1mm.
    .05”= 1.27mm

    .028” = .71mm

    Should have done these calcs before I ordered. I ordered two of the same size just one metric and one standard. Ohh well...

  23. Re: Which wood for a Chamonix F1 is better ... Teak or Maple?
