    That's just a matter of personal preference.

    Your earlier statement appeared to claim that the lens actually does cover 5x7, which is not the case.

    I'm just trying to clarify the coverage claim for the benefit of future readers. I think it's important that they understand the difference between published specifications and personal opinion.

    here is a 12x16 (30x40cm) without vignetting, so you see I understand what lens to use to cover the format. In this case its a Symmar 360/5,6 with an image circle of 20 inch or 50cm.^^

    The lens is definitely not up to the format, as seen in the darkened corners.

    With most manufacturers, coverage is defined as the area that meets the quality specs for the lens, which is usually smaller than the circle of illumination.

    - Leigh
    While the quality of an almost 100 year old lens may be subjective because of the issues related to performance, such as fungus, cleaning marks, material used in elements, etc. So, perhaps just appreciate the photo for what it is. The vignetting is easily cropped, but also works as part of the composition. It draws the viewer in and frames the subject nicely.

    Film is not dead!

    Yesterday my daughter and I went to the California coast again - we do that once or twice a year, a time for us to "connect with nature." While I was taking the Chamonix F1 out of the trunk, I saw a few people going to their car, one carrying a 4x5 on a tripod, so I chat with them for a bit.

    Turned out that they are members of the Stanford 4x5 camera club. They had about 10 members taking photos that day. In fact, they have at least 2 Chamonix F1 in the mix. They were very excited to see another person using 4x5, as was I. I gave them my card.

    A continuation of my project:
    https://www.facebook.com/Transformat...splayPortraits

    A character from the RWBY anime, Blake Belladonna. I will take photos of her in her "casual" wear in the next couple weeks.

    This is the second costume she made.

    Hi, assuming this question is for me: I have a spot meter but for photos like these, I just use an incident meter next to the person. I take multiple reading around her to make sure that the light level ratio are what I expect. I use Provia 100 @100 and I do scan, so I can compensate some minor exposure issue if I need to at post, but most of the time, it's pretty much dead on.

    Vanessa with tilt and swing



    I forgot what lens I used but it might have been a soft focus lens, which doesn't seem soft at all to me. And I had fill light from an Einstein flash camera left. Using tilt and swing. The lens couldn't cover the whole sensor with this much movement.

    And the camera has no IR blocking filter, so there is an infra red effect going on, which makes her top a bit more transparent then usual.

    Model: Vanessa A Leigh
    Camera: LargeSense LS911 Pre Production Camera
    Large format digital camera (single shot sensor, size bigger than 8x10 inch)
    Photo Taken: August 14, 2014 Los Gatos, CA, USA

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    I just did tilt and swing to show an example of being able to do it with this camera, trying to push to the edge (or beyond the edge). It doesn't necessarily make the photo look better.

    Try Large Format Digital Backs and Cameras

    Sounds a very interesting project, a 9x11 digital back!

    For what it's worth, I really like the shot, nothing wrong with experimenting with movements, it's a beautiful effect in this instance. I personally hate movements to make landscapes look like they are in miniature but this I like.

    I'll put up specs later for the camera. It has large pixels so it is not high resolution. It has a high base ISO and quick read time so it is possible to do a live view for focusing.

    Here's another photo from that session with just tilt and a Fujinon SF lens 1:5.6 / 250 mm.

    Gratitude! I bow to all the supporters. What a week. The total donations through Transformations:Cosplay Photo Project by Richard Man - GoFundMe now exceeds 2x of my original goal. THANK YOU.

    Please enjoy this presentation of Sunny / Lady Licorice. The day after I took the "casual" photos, she's starting her Junior year. The young lady has a bright future ahead of her.

    4th Times Is A Charm
    and why https://www.facebook.com/Transformat...splayPortraits is a long term project.

    I took the photo at the left in Jan 2014. Unfortunately, Colleen / Princess Agitha left ALA before I could take her casual photo. Then at FAnime, we met up and the photo was ... misfocused Then we met at a cosplay gathering and I accidentally tugged on the film holders and one sheet (out of six) got exposed to the Sun and OF COURSE it's the one with her on it :-[. Finally, this weekend I drove a thousand miles to Sacramento and nailed it. Enjoy!

    From the audio notes:

    I met Peachy Pie at Anime LA 2014. She is a full time student majoring in art design, and has been going to anime cons for 5 years. While she makes her own costumes, she calls herself “pretty new” at sewing.

    Peachy Pie: “The best part of cosplay is getting it done, wearing it, and becoming the character."

    "If you play the game (Zelda games), Princess Agitha seems to have Asperger. She is quirky and seems to be shy... she has “something”, like the positions of her hands. She won't really make eye contact very much. I have Asperger myself, but it's not really bad. If people ask, I would tell them... Now that I am older, I can see from her that that's how I was.”

    My Cooke PS945 came in! Since my wife is away for a few days so I have no model. So I tested it with a selfie :-)

    I tested it with F4.5 also but I didn't realize the Copal shutter does not like "in-between" shutter speed :-[

    The "5" fingers is a reminder that it's F5.6 :-)

    Hi Foveon, supposedly the lens design is a recreation of the famous Pinkham & Smith Visual Quality Series IV Soft Focus Lens. The soft focus effect is entirely based on the aperture (e.g. from 4.5 to F8) At F11 on, it's sharp with beautiful bokeh (I will test that out today).

    Ted Grant is a national treasure of Canada. He photographed Prime Minister Trudeau sliding down a banister and Ben Johnson winning the Gold (and then lost it later due to drug violation). Travel photos, Queen Elizabeth, he has done it all. His photography mantra is KISS (Keep it Simple...) Back in the days, he would run around with 3 Leica Ms on his neck, and then one or two Leica R with long lens.

    And he's an incredibly generous, funny person. My wife and I had the privilege to share an afternoon with him. The Leica M9 photoset is here:

    It was somewhat surreal that after some niceties, that I brought in my 4x5, and of course I had the wrong film etc. So a mistake :-/ Nevertheless, with the magic of Lightroom, an image can be seen:

    I'm not quite sure what you mean. The mirrored image is quite a bit darker, except for some leaves on the right, which might be close in brightness. I did up the contrast of the water a little, to make it look less muddy. This jpg does look more contrasty than the print, this is downsized from the actual print file. But even that doesn't really look lifelike, as the forest was actually in color

    I think the patch of clouds in the background is lighter on the reflection....
