    I'm going to have to wash and dry this one again as there are some goopy drying marks visible in the sky.

    This was shot in the Dolomites in 2014. Truly a beautiful place. This is 8x10 Delta, rated at EI 50 and developed N-2. The lens was a 300mm Rodenstock Apo-Sironar N f.5/6

    This thing entered my life:


    I love the idea of hand-held 4x5, although it's not a great idea for landscapes. Just the view out the window, but it works!

    Matt, handheld 4x5 landscape photography sounds like a great idea. Although it will take a bit of practice.

    Actually, this works better than I expected (with a cable release).



    I love the 1958 camera with tripod right out of the 1956 movie Forbidden Planet (obvious Krell design! ) New carry-around kit!

    Actually, it looks like left over parts from Robbie the Robot.

    Is that a sports finder built into the front standard?

    I always pegged Robbie as a Krell design implemented by Morbius. I was thinking of some of the other lab machinery as well. Disney did a great job! Not until Kubrick's 2001 (12 years later) were its special effects surpassed IMHO.

    Yes, it has a sports finder with parallax correction, a working rangefinder (I have to get a different rangefinder cam to install a 90mm lens instead of the current 135mm), a ground glass screen with removable hood, and a rotating back. It's an amazingly competent little camera. It even has an electrically operated shutter button, but it needs two 22.5v batteries that are $25 each. I'll stick with manually tripping the shutter! The front standard has a pretty wide range of rise/tilt/swing. Sideways shifts and fall for wide lenses is a bit limited. The bed drops for very wide angles (I think a 65mm will work on it). It's not far off from the Tachihara field camera I once owned, but that was definitely tripod only.

    Matt, you are making me miss my Wista VX technical camera. I certainly appreciate digital photography, but we lost a lot of things with film.

    Nostalgia isn't want it used to be...

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    The seller of my Super Graphic kindly threw in a Fuji instant film back, 6 shots remaining, and an unopened box of film. Here's my first try (I know it's upside down - I like the composition better this way):



    Part of this is not pulling the dark slide out all the way (it was in backwards), but how much of what you see is due to wildly expired film and how much is user error. I have no way to judge! Oh, the central vertical line is actually there - that's not an artifact.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Well, it was free... I'm am weighing massively to the slide of expired film. It has all the hallmarks.

    This is a great photo.
    Composition, lighting etc. I love the location too, wild, remote, but not - like your looking up through a basement. I appreciate these film threads as these take skill and understanding photography from a purist form that's so intimately tangible. I sold my Ebony SW45 and have been considering 8x10 for contact printing. There's a reason I never sold my Pentax 1% meter for using the zone system and I think this photo just made me realize it. Shooting digital has it's merits, but the intrinsic value of film as an art is something imo, that digital can never match. The overused HDR or tone mapping and the ability to shoot without really having any understanding of the fundamentals of basic photography. Thank you for rekindling this passion!
    I develop my own film with a Jobo 1000 ATL, but that won't do for 8x10. Any suggestions on a drum developer with a roller?

    Re: More Fun with Large Format Film Images!

    Another try with instant film - this time the pos/neg New55. Alas, I need practice. The print was very overexposed, the negative also overexposed (could have sworn it was ISO 100...) But you need a tray of concentrated (and thus expensive) fixer to develop the negative, and it's a slow process, and...



    I'm sticking with good old-fashioned negative film. The SP-445 makes developing 4x5 B&W film very easy and doesn't use a lot of chemistry.

    Hi,

    Beatiful picture. Is the figurine a Lladro ?

    Best regards.

    Yes, a Lladro.

    And for jdphoto, an easy way to develop 10x8 is to use BTZS tubes from https://viewcamerastore.com/
    There's a video on their use here.

    Mostly, I've been using those F6's pictured above! But since I bought 200 sheets of the Galaxy Hyperspeed paper through their Kickstarter, I have to use it up. It was a fun session. My incident meter swore I needed only 8 seconds at f64 with the two monolights I was using. The 300mm lens was extended to 480mm, so it seemed like I needed another one and a third stops for bellows compensation, and then for reciprocity - how much? I had no idea, so I used four sheets of paper, all pre-flashed for four seconds through a sheet of plain white paper in front of the lens, then exposed for 8, 16, 30 and 60 seconds. Just as well that the 30 second exposure turned out nicely, as it seems I placed the paper in the holder the wrong way round for the 60 second exposure (it was a negative, but it was the right way round left to right, and it probably got the equivalent of 2 seconds actual exposure). Fun, fun, fun. That's why we do it, no?

    nice shot, but why are the lenses near the left and right downsided corners that distorted?

    If you mean the two 50mm lenses seeming to point outwards as well as upwards - I suspect it was that I used quite a bit of tilt to get everything in focus.
