Re: Gobo For "The Mound Of Diamonds"

Mick,

I have mate in Bega who has a Nikkor Tele 360/500 he'd be glad to get rid of, if that takes your fancy. I borrowed it years ago and found the image circle restrictive. This is withe 500mm.

Re: Ready, Willling And Able

Yes Mick, That was the initial Gossen kit. If it was for the Sinor it would’ve been for the Norma and my first encounter with it was seeing it promoted in those glossy Grossbild Teknik magazines that Linhof used to put out. By the time I bought one in the 80s Sinar had put the probe port into the ba...

Re: Gobo For "The Mound Of Diamonds"

Thanks Mick,

I had a 300mm Apo-Symmar as a standard lens from 10x8 and also used it for product shots on 5x4. It was the second lens I bought after a 210mm. The thing I'd recommend for field use is the Nikkor-M 300mm 1:9 which is the size of a 150mm — Copal1 and 52mm filters AND covers 8x10.

Re: Ready, Willling And Able

WOW!! That must have been the early probe, made by Gossen and initially teamed with Linhof. I had the later one which teamed with a Broncolor meter. It worked okay for me but my use of spot-metering as an exposure determining method was incredibly short lived for both colour and black & white. C...

Re: Inspirations

The summer school holidays were dragging on. I was about 6. My father asked me why I was grumpy and I said, "I'm bored!" There came pivotal parental advicee: "If the world is boring you, take more interest in it." The next Christmas Santa brought me my wished-for Box Brownie and ...

Re: Ready, Willling And Able

Mick, I don't think I'd even want to trust 20kg on the plexiglass table on the wheelchair. I've pared the weight down as it is and sort of favour the the Sunwayfoto Levelling base. Dear old Borge. I wonder how he's keeping. I shudder tto think about how any Manfrotto anything could be worth the pric...

On The Subject Of Heads

My preferred alternative to the geared head for my current circumstances is the LEVELLING HEAD which is made with providing a level platform upon which to mount another Pan/Tilt head similarly to a half-ball cine tripod. I guess the advent of panorama stitching with the 0-1-0-1-0-1 has fuelled the i...

Re: Ready, Willling And Able

Mick, It's quite amazing. First of all, the price is very competitive at less than $300 with currency fluctuations. It's light in weight has quite a load rating, and it's more compact than many ball heads. Arca-Swiss do one too at about 3 times the price. My first experience with geared heads was in...
