    I haven't yet used it on a Graflex SLR, only on a Speed Graphic. As mentioned earlier, the tall hood of the RB might be a problem. The loupe needs to be against the GG. That, in practice, might make...

    Re: Exposure compensation for small apertures

    Interesting. A rather complicated table, though. If I read it correctly, Stroebel is generally consistent with Kodak except Stroebel works in units of 1/4 second and Kodak in units of 1/3 second.

    I think the Fair Use Clause permits limited reproduction for academic purposes, which this probably is because nobody is seeking profit from Stroebel’s work, but I respect your position.

    Re: 203mm Ektar Shutter Help Needed

    Not “cheap”; you are trying to be THRIFTY. Commendable, as is knowing how to decide which option is really the thriftiest option! You will enjoy that lens when the shutter is overhauled.
