  1. Re: What is your digital camera “scanning” setup?

    There are potential benefits, such as flatter film and slightly finer grain, but there are also downsides, such as the cost, hassle, and danger of scratching film. The best way to make an informed...

    Thanks! Yes, but you have to sign up in advance. That day there weren't any openings. We'll do the tour sometime soon. Edwin Hubble did his graduate study there. Einstein visited in 1921.

    With portraiture, LF excels at 'directness', and Francis is showing some great examples of that!
  7. Re: Century Master Studio Camera Restoration

    Does the treaded rod/nut work ok? If so, great! If not, you might replace them with an ACME threaded rod and nut. My original didn't work well anymore, and so that's what I did. I did have to have...

    Louis, I didn't know about the brown paint on the Master. Mine is a 7a, if memory serves, and the metal parts looked like they were originally black. Thanks for the correction!

    I don't have any Canon gear, and so I don't know about the 100mm.....If you are scanning at 1x, well, you'd want the 1x Rodagon version. (I have both.) That would mean you'd scan a sensor sized area...
