Re: The way this Board is run

By Front End, I presume you mean the non-forum part. I'll be putting some thought in to that today as I have cleared a few hours to work on it. We're all agreed it's not brilliant, but again we're limited by time and what skills we have in-house. Now if somebody out there knows a thing or two about...

Re: Maxwell Screen

You need to know whether the Chamonix back was designed to have a fresnel under the focus screen or not. The company made a huge error selling cameras for a while with a fresnel and a screen that was out of register, they'd not allowed for the thickness of the fresnel itself. So not all Chamonix bac...

Apologies for my delayed reply...

Am I still in time to get a couple in the mix? I need them 130 by 106mm, if you'd be so kind. A corner chopped off to let the air out would be nice but is not essential.

Thanks,

Neil
Have PM'ed you.

Re: Thread subscriptions

Getting this thread back on track, RE: the subscription thing, this should not be the case, subscriptions should be "opt-in" by default, not "opt-out". I'll look into it. Thank you. I notice you're playing with the red highlighing of posts as well, it's an issue that's been neglected it's trivial b...

Re: WTB (or trade) #0 shutter

Hi Dave, an Epsilon would get me out of trouble, let me know what you want for it. I've a set of Geronar cells in no shutter, but more importantly two other #0 shutters in need of repair.

Thanks

WTB (or trade) #0 shutter

Looking for a Copal/Compr/Prontor shutter preferably with an aperure scale for a 150mm lens. Age is less important than reliability so even a good 1930's (rimswet)) Compur would be OK.

Have a Prontor Press #1 I could trade.

Re: WTB: 4x5 film holders with double groove

My typo sorry, the holder should be 11.9cm wide. Thickness doesnt really matter. There'd be less work modifying aplain wooden holder.

The single groove Graflex RB holders are wider, and the groove#s more central so they'd actually need more modificvation.

Re: WTB: 4x5 film holders with double groove

The very much older Sanderson "book-form" wooden plate holders have the same pair of grooves each side although the holder's very much thicker and so they are further apart. The Folmer Graflex Corp, name means that one is post 1928 when the company became independent of Eastman Kodak, however their ...

Marc, is the wooden part marked Folmer Graflex or the slide itself.

Re: ND filters for long exposures

After recent images posted here in this forum I'd think twice of buying a Lee filter if I wanted an ND filter, they seem to suffer worse than uncoated glass filters in terms of causing internal lens/filter reflections. I'm sorry Ian but you really shouldn't jump to such conclusions, especially when...
