    Sticky Synchro-Compur Shutter

    I'm using a borrowed Schneider Symmar 1:5.6/150 mounted in a Synchro-Compur shutter. Today, while out in the cold air making a few images, the shutter failed to open on "T" after working properly (I...

    Re: Linhof Color 4x5 front rise

    Self-locking, as in just friction to hold it in place? It moves very easily. Any ideas on the proper way to clean that area?

    Linhof Color 4x5 front rise

    I've borrowed a Linhof Color 4x5 from a friend who hasn't used it in 40 or so years. It's in good shape (after I patched a few pinholes in the bellows) and I look forward to exposing some film with...

    Re: CLA for old shutter

    Camera Techs in Seattle is an option. http://www.cameratechs.com/

    They've serviced other mechanical shutters for me and will be doing a CLA on a Compure 3 for me in the coming weeks. I was quoted...

    I recently purchased a 300mm Sironar-N for my 8x10 Burke & James commercial view camera. It came mounted on a Deardorff lens board, which has the same 6"x6" overall dimensions as a B&J lens board....

    Re: Maintaining 68 with tankless water heater

    Our cold water is always below 68F as it comes from our well and we don't have all that many days each year when the air temperature is much above that. The issue is that the on-demand water heater...

    Re: Maintaining 68 with tankless water heater

    That's the option I'm considering, with the on-demand water heater feeding into the electric as a pre-heater when there's sufficient flow.

    Re: Maintaining 68 with tankless water heater

    Not a viable option in the rather cramped room that will become the darkroom, nor in the space I'm using temporarily. But for other folks it could work.

    The air temp in my studio workroom, the...

    Re: Maintaining 68 with tankless water heater

    Doremus, that's certainly one possible solution — if you have the space for the large tubs of water, which I don't. At the moment I'm processing at an old kitchen sink in my office (35mm in stainless...

    Maintaining 68 with tankless water heater

    I have a tankless gas water heater in my studio building. Yesterday I processed my first film in this space (and first in many years). I had a lot of trouble maintaining 68F water flow to dilute...

    Favorite Current 8x10 B&W Film?

    What's your current favorite 8x10 black & white film, and why? A note about what you're photographing with it would be useful as well.

    I ask because I'm preparing to use the 8x10 I've owned for...

    Re: Ball or Pan-tilt head for 8x10?

    Thank you all for the feedback and opinions. I'll be looking for an appropriate pan/tilt head and save my ballheads to use with my much smaller digital camera bodies. Not sure which one I'll end up...

    Ball or Pan-tilt head for 8x10?

    I'm preparing to fire up a Burke & James 8x10 that's been in storage for many years.

    In my day to day work with 35mm size digital cameras I use an Arca B-1 ballhead and love it. However, I'm...

    Re: f/5.6 or slower 300mm for 8x10?

    Yes, the B&J is a rather heavy camera and I don't expect to be hauling it on my back too far into the field. Good point about diminishing returns. I also hadn't thought about the 5.6 making focusing...

    I'm in the market for a lens in the 300mm range for my 8x10 Burke & James, which has been in storage and unused for nearly 40 years. The lens currently on the camera is an unlabeled piece of junk in...
