I think I'm giving up on slide film because of its poor dynamic range. I ordered two boxes of Velvia 50 in 4x5 a couple of days ago for posterity, but I'm going to stick to negative films. It'll mostly be theses:

B&W:
Fuji Neopan Acros 100
Ilford Pan F+ 50 (shot at ISO 25)
Ilford SFX 200 (near-IR)

Fujicolor Reala 100
Portra 400

Hopefully, those will all be around for my lifetime.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Yeah. I went to his FIND workshop in Boston last month...spent 5 days with the man. He is freaking incredible. He was nothing but an open book the whole time. He would answer any question anyone had and watching him work was mind-blowing to say the least.

You lucky son of a $#%*^.

If I had the money and the means to have gone to Chicago, I would have taken his workshop in a heartbeat. I just hope he takes students under 18. :lol:

Got a ton of scans back last night. Here is some personal stuff that I shot while up in Boston/Plymouth for the FIND workshop.

Testing out my Razzle 900 and some Ebay Grafmatics on a few conductors. I am loving the freedom of the rangefinder in 4x5. Here is the first that looks ok:

In later photos I moved to eliminate the gap in the chairs on the left.

I really like what you are doing here. Look at that detail. Sounds like you have a great rig that is freeing your creativity. Nothing like a chunk of film to deliver. I just love it.

Nice shots everyone.

I got some color film back from recent trip and I love it. I shot the Astia with afternoon summer light at Crater Lake and a local mural and a roll of 160S on a log jammed creek near Mt Bachelor. Shot wide 6x12 with a 55 Grandagon. I will update this post later tonight with some images. Film is awesome so we are truly blessed to have the best of both in this day and age.

Thanks Joe. It is pretty liberating. My last batch that I developed seemed to be front focused a bit. I need to double check the rangefinder focus with the ground glass.

I think if you are worried a bit about the eyes they are in fact glossy surfaces so the focus is not a real problem in my eye. The chair to the right is the giveaway to front focusing but it's pretty minimal for me. The tone is really working. I love Delta film.

Well, it's official. A recently CLA'ed shiny M4 and Voightlander 35mm 1.4 Nokton should be on my doorstep by the end of the week.

Now...does anyone want to buy my 17-40 f4L?? :D

Guys! So I'm coming into some great gear, with lots more to unload as well. A family friend's husband was a portrait / wedding photographer and passed away around 15-20 years ago. All of his gear has sat since his passing and I have been tasked to help unload it.

I'm going to be picking up one of the Hasselblad 500CM kits myself (with an 80 & 150mm) but there's a couple more Hassey kits and a really awesome Linhof 5x7 Model III with 4 lenses.

Anyways, with the 500CM I want to keep for myself I imagine I'm going to have to replace the foam internally as it has long deteriorated (otherwise very clean, though clearly used) Is it easy enough to replace this foam myself (Having done many cameras previously)

Or would it be better to send it to David Odess or even Hasselblad USA for service?

Just curious :D

What foam? The foam in the back is trivial to exchange (costs 10$ on ebay). The foam in the body usually doesn't cause light leaks. (There's a bit by the trap doors and perhaps where the mirror snaps up, not sure.

That's what I was referring to, the mirror dampening foam, I can tell its all worn away, but otherwise the camera seems to operate as a hassleblad should in my dry runs.

Will the mirror get damaged without the dampening foam?

I can't get over just how perfect this thing is - and KEH did right by me.

I won an EOS-1 with power booster from KEH on eBay, but it turned out they'd already sold it and couldn't fill the order.

They offered this instead and ate the difference. I'm ecstatic.
