Re: Ready, Willling And Able

I just did some calculations, I've had my Profisix meter for 37 years and still use it whenever I take a picture, pretty impressive as I've been twisting the dial for every measurement; nothing appears loose, although it is a little worn looking. I have almost the full swag of accessories for it, al...

Re: Gobo For "The Mound Of Diamonds"

Walter a wonderful offer, however I have a Komuron 400 T, which suffers from the same fate, super small image circle. I also have a very nice Schneider Kreuznach Tele Arton f/5.6 / 250mm unit in a repaired Compur 1 shutter. The shutter repair almost cost me as much as the lens itself, still it worke...

Re: Ready, Willling And Able

Yep, I remember well Dollar Bill day, it was a Monday and I was ready to receive the 1 cent and 2 cent pieces on that day. I seem to remember the 5 cent and 10 cent coin appeared on the Tuesday. The real cunning exchanged two pennies for a two cent coin, then get thruppence worth of stuff for tuppen...

Re: Ready, Willling And Able

Metrification of biscuits, wouldn't that be an excuse to reduce the actual size of the biscuits and probably at the same time, put the price up? :mrgreen: I don't know about Linhof, but my memory suggested it was Sinar and what I found on the net is this, which looks remarkably like what we had. Not...

Re: Gobo For "The Mound Of Diamonds"

Walter, your recommendation is perfect, I have often surmised that lens would be a nice addition, however their scarcity in this country at a reasonable price, makes for a glum outlook. Instead I have been on the lookout for a Fujinon equivalent; Fujinon C, f/8.5, 300mm in Copal 1 shutter. It also s...

Re: On The Subject Of Heads

That certainly looks the goods, for your circumstances it should be brilliant. I myself have always liked ball heads, simple, quick and within reason not too hard to use. Hardness to use though, certainly goes up pretty quick in a direct relationship to your camera size. My Berlebach tripod has what...

Re: Ready, Willling And Able

Well the studios where I worked used Foba stands, we were about 5 minutes away from Borge's in the same suburb, Port Melbourne. More than a few times they gave us a Manfrotto studio stand to use as an enticement, we never kept them and as their pricing structure was not quite over the top, but close...

Re: Umbagong cascade

John, that really looks velvety, if you know what I mean. The highlights in the wet area look like liquid light shimmering off of the surface, really nice.

Re: Gobo For "The Mound Of Diamonds"

Pretty neat use of the 300mm to compress the distance of the headstones and your gobo; I like this effect. A few years ago I picked up a 250mm lens for 4x5" photography, I don't think I have used my 210mm lens since and I know for certain I've used the 150mm even less. I would love to have a 30...
