Jeff Carter on Artscape Tuesday ABC TV

Not absolutely LF photography but Jeff Carter did amazing work capturing the spirit of Australia in his work over 60 years.

Testing the Linhof and a Nikkor-T *ED 500mm

I went out into the world with the recently acquired Linhof Master Technika V and wanted to check that it is aligned correctly. It is. I also did a test with a 500mm Nikkor Tele and it is a pearler, too. http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8442/7756874380_bdb5d32914.jpg 500mm Tele http://farm8.staticflick...

Re: Direct or Indirect Shifts?

Love 'em, or hate 'em, the great contribution of the Sinars to LF operating is the two-point focussing system to calculate a relatively accurate amount of tilt or swing. I recently posted an image of floral tributes stuck into the air-vents of the plinth of a huge memorial monument. I shot with the ...

Re: Adding to the Inventory

Is there a tried and trusted method to figure out the hyperfocal distance on such cameras? I assume I would need to get out a tape measure and measure the distance between the film plane and lens plane or something along those lines? Welly, I was possibly in error suggesting that I set a hyperfocal...

Re: Choice of Film. What do you shoot?

Is there a name for a person who has little or no interest in shooting colour? I think it might be Ag NO3 (silver nitrate). When I did shoot colour film (commercially) I did use specific emulsions for specific subjects — all THREE back then: Kodak, Fuji and Agfa. My LF exploits are dedicated to B&am...
