  1. Re: Wide Lenses for 4x5 & 8x10: 90mm to 165mm

    The widest lens I have for 4x5 is 90mm. For 8x10, I use Nikkor SW 120, W210, W240. I tend to use more wide lenses with 8x10, than I do with 4x5.

    Re: Digital IR

    I shoot a lot of Rollei IR in 4x5 and 120. Lovely stuff.
  3. Re: More detail from internegative or digital negative ?

    I totally agree. I made internegs, then switched to digital negs. Faster. Easier. Cheaper. AND... you can build all your burns and dodges IN the negative. Less waste.

    Re: Anyone else printing smaller?

    Usually print around 8x10. Good size to look at while holding in your hands. If I want something for the wall, I'll print a bit larger.

    Re: Digital IR

    Really happy to see that my Nikkor 24-70 2.8G lens works really well with my 720 filter (Zomei). I tested it at 24mm and at 70mm. No hot spot.

    Testing D850 (not IR converted) with Komei IR filters 680, and 720. The 720 (and 680, for that matter) considerably darker than my other 720 filter, making it challenging to focus. But if I cupped my...

    I ordered a cheap IR filter set consisting of four filters, from China, that vary in strength. 680, 720, 760, 850, 950nm. My current R72 is quite worn out, as I've been using it forever. Consists of...

  28. Re: Citric acid equivalent for acetic acid bath.

    I use vinegar at the school I teach photography, as it's plentiful and cheap. Diluted at "about" 1+1. At home I sometimes use vinegar, but more often use citric acid. One tablespoon per litre.

    Re: Shooting expired B&W film

    My 1967 4x5 HIE has base fog equivalent to about one stop. Still produces excellent images. My HP5 that I've kept frozen since 2005, has about a third more base+fog. FP4 looks like new though.

    I use frosted mylar sheets and a soft pencil to dodge/burn areas. The mylar is laid on top of the negative, then covered with heavy glass. I also do this for kallitypes.
