    Wow, $800 for that holder? I would love to use one, but not at that price!

    It would be more practical to get an SLR adapter.

    Not if you want to use a wide angle focal length for 35mm. In fact, you probably wouldn't be able to get a normal focal length 35mm format lens to focus to infinity. Even with a recessed board and a wide angle bellows.

    A guy showed me how he was using 35mm strips in old, folder roll film cameras, (and laughed about film flatness issues,) was getting a sharpish center area and progressively OOF towards the exposed sprocket areas, due to film curling... Although, this goes against ALL of my instincts, he was getting interesting special effect results...

    I put it in my "never say never" file...

    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    We are talking about using a 35mm format back on LF.

    Re: 35mm sprocket hole photography with LF camera

    Here is my first sprocket hole portrait. Taken using a Dallmeyer 3B with an 11x14 studio camera sporting a 4x5 back, using 35mm to 120 rollfilm adapters in a 6x7 roll film back. The film was very old and poorly stored crap developed standing for two hours in 1/100 rodinal. This is a scan of a 4x10 print made made in my closet with a 4x5 Graflarger. When I was laying it out I liked the part of the previous image (the cat) on the roll visible at the top, so left that in. Had I cut that out the printed format would have been about 3 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches.

    Can you explain what a "red/blue polarizer" does? I mean I see the color in the image but can you elaborate?
