    Thanks. I need a new model. Comparing my photo with the other two here, mine is lacking the delicate tonal range of the others. I intend to buy some regular film and compare with the x-ray film. There are also specular highlights that could be eliminated with a polarizing filter, another issue to add to the list. Here's one of my sonClick image for larger version.

    I do not know. For sharper images, a yellow filter is recommended when using one element by itself to correct for the blue light not being focused properly.

    You actually can use single element of Cooke convertible lens for 11x14 head and shoulder. I have tried the rear element for some head shots. Not bad at all.

    And for that matter; Convertible Symmar's, Protar VII's, Convertible Wollensak lenses, and a host of others too. But, you'll need to work out of doors in good light. Focus with lenses darker than f5 indoors is not fun.

    Nice too! It is very contrasty.
