    Hola, can you add images, and is there a size for the 4x5 Arca f/line? Oops, already translated!

    Any chance you will ship outside of the States (to Hong Kong)? Also wonder how will you pack it to avoid breakage and the associated P&P rate. I'm looking for a 8x10 ground glass to replace the one that comes with the Intrepid camera - that one's simply too coarse to focus with.

    Thanks.

    Yes, I would be happy to ship to Hong Kong. When I ship any screen, I wrap it in tissue paper, then in cardboard. With screens larger than 5x7, I then tape the cardboard sandwich to a sheet of cardboard which fits the inside of the box and fill both sides of the box with packing peanuts. I have never had a screen not make it all the way intact. Price including postage is $120.75 USD to Hong Kong. If you do decide to order please measure the rebate the screen fits into VERY carefully. I will make you a custom size screen that is .5mm under the size you measure so you are ensured of a proper fit. It is WAY too expensive to send it back if it does not fit. Even though you said it was for a Intrepid camera, all manufacturers have some variation.

    Thank you for your question. If you decide to buy, please contact me with your email and I will send a private email with payment instructions.

    I purchased a ground glass for my 14x17 field camera from Barry. He even delivered it to me! We are both in Washington but it was a distance for him to travel. It fits perfect and is the best GG I've had. Now I need to take this beast back out now that I can see with a lens that only opens to F-11. Great quality and Barry is a great guy.

So, it is not all about metrics we can write about, but what we find useful.

    So, try and buy... and look into aerial focusing which I prefer - a completely subjective thing.
    And so, what do you suggest? I grind with three different grits to offer finer or coarser selection. I am interested in what you know.

    Thanks for your message

    Thank you Jim

    It was a pleasure to meet you and see some of your carbon prints in person. I also loved seeing the camera you built.

    Thanks again

    When I ground a number of GG's for myself I learned the differences of a coarse and a fine grind as regards hotspot and luminance. I have often wondered if a good GG might have a coarse field generally for peripheral luminance and a central fine grind for finer image. Never tried it myself yet, though. Good luck with your product. I hope you do very well.

    Hi Barry,
    I would definitely try out your screens when I get a new 8x10.
    When your website or contact information becomes available, please let us know.
    Thank you and good luck!

    Re: Ground Glass focusing screens including custom sizes from Young Camera Company

    Wow! That is an interesting idea. I have found grinding with one grit difficult enough, and I think the transition between areas might look a bit odd, but I will try it to see what it looks like. This might just be a viable idea you have had. I believe it may be reproducible.

    Thank you so much for your response.
