  • The only Fuji I own is a venerable X-Pro1, so I have no idea to which the 50R might benefit from being chilled. But I do own several Sony A7R and RX1 bodies, as well as a full-spectrum Samsung ...
  • The easy solution to get from here to there -- especially as he already owns an Actus -- is to use Cambo's upgrade kit . This will turn this Ultima into an Actus XL and maintain cross-compatibility ...
  • As Rob noted above, I have successfully adapted a Cambo Actus G rotating camera mount bracket for use with several of my VX23D-based FrankenKameras. Although the Cambo mounts  are not inexpensive, ...
  • I would suggest a copy stand.  Since you'll be using it for just one job, it won't need to be widely adjustable and if you're handy with DIY projects, you should be able to build one fairly easily ...
  • I have a Flexbody as well, but it's my opinion that it's far too flimsy to be used with digital backs instead of roll film backs. Which is a shame, because it's very compact and used ones can be ...
  • Thanks!  It worked well for what it was, but as I noted, it was overkill for my purposes and much heavier than I was happy carrying around over my shoulder while walking several miles over the ...
  • Another consideration is that very few film-era view cameras are sufficiently rigid to make a successful transition to digital capture.  And those few that are sufficiently rigid are also bulky ...
  • If you don't mind carrying around a bit of extra weight -- a bit over 1 lb. for a 7" monitor, up to approx. 3 lbs. for a 12.5", 4k monitor -- one very effective solution to this issue is to add an ...
  • Alternatively, you use different cameras for different photographic purposes; i.e., "horses for courses," as the saying goes. In addition to my serious photography, which is done using a tripod, ...
  • Tilt and shift movements (as well as rise and fall movements) aren't just for larger format cameras, but can also be used with smaller format cameras, too! Rob, for example, has previously (and ...
  • If you photograph a lot of architecture, I believe you'll quickly come to appreciate the ease of use that direct rear movements provide versus indirect movements applied through the front standard. ...
  • Out of curiosity, how are you controlling the electronic apertures of the C645 lenses? Inquiring minds need to know!
  • In 20 years? Heck, I often feel that way today! I use a tripod, in-camera movements, vintage lenses, manual focus v. auto-focus, and even manual exposure v. auto-exposure for almost every "serious" ...
  • Speaking of which, does anyone remember the much smaller-scale versions (around 2'x3', IIRC) that Kodak dealers exhibited in a backlit display that looked like a slide mount during the mid-to-late ...
  • If you want/need a leaf shutter and a built-in flash, as I do, then the original RX1 is the only way to go. So far, no one has mentioned this combo as a feature, so it's clear why Sony dumped the ...
  • Replied in Leofoto G2
    All three devices -- both goniometers and the rotational stage on top of the stack -- were made by Melles Griot and purchased as New Old Stock from three different sources. The base was made by ...
  • I don't need a panorama head -- on those rare occasions when I shoot panos, I flat-stitch them using a camera having a rear shift mechanism -- and I've become very proficient at quickly leveling ...
  • That's certainly another option, but I spent maybe ten minutes total and zero money to swap clamps on my Cube, so DIYing it was clearly the quickest, easiest, and least costly option for me ... ...
  • Yep.  I also have a temperature-controlled soldering station as well, but for this purpose, an inexpensive, fixed-temp, basic soldering iron works better. I think you're overthinking this, because ...
  • Replied in Leofoto G2
    One thing that always bugged me about the C1 -- mostly due to its price and not so much its actual performance -- is that Arca-Swiss cheaped-out and used the same goniometers in both positions ...
