    Re: 35mm and digital infrared

    If I remember correctly.... This was shot in April, in the evening. So yes, I believe it had rained earlier.

    I second this! In this age of 'googling' everything, don't let them get one over on you by feigning ignorance. That's a cop-out statement and should not be treated as a valid response to anything....

    I have a 300mm Symmar Conv in one... Works quite well. But I have noticed that the time does seem to fluctuate with the voltage applied. For example when running it with a 3v CR2 lithium battery,...

    Sounds like bad caps. See if you can get the values off the schematic and replace your caps. Most power supply issues stem from the electrolytics going bad. Sometimes, they'll even look bloated or...

    I tend to agree more with this assessment. Because the rebate edge is involved--but only slightly, thereby casting a minor 'shadow' of fog across the edge and notch codes--I am inclined to suggest...

    Re: 150mm WA lens for 8x10 recommendations

    Looks like Gundlach Optical... A quick search in Google Images shows a number of wide angle lenses from Gundlach; many of them look like the one in the catalog page.

    So to your questions about LF macro... In LF photography, focusing is more about bellows extension than it is with lenses. So the...
