yeah corners are hard to look for me too, especially with my 90mm f/8 lens which is why I would rather shoot with my 210mm f/5.6 haha

are you using a loupe and dark cloth?

I only started to use dark cloth and loupe yesterday. :o
It is cheap x8 plastic loupe for negs. But I was able to see what is in focus.

^i think it's the max I'll go, 8x10 are so expensive and hard to find.
although I wouldn't mind trying a 6x12 or 6x17 in the future

found a local store with a boat load full of expired astia 220 selling for cheap.
bought 20 rolls after testing a roll

do it!
I think it will suit your B&W work nicely!

A local shop has a Speed Graphic with an Ektar 150 lens for $400, but I'm thinking that I'd be better off saving up a bit more for a Toyo or Shen Hao. I definitely like the idea of the large negatives, overall slower process and composing on the large ground glass, but the costs associated with 4x5 aren't as appealing. I have also been considering a Mamiya RZ67, which might be a better compromise...

My Speed Graphic with Ektar lens cost me well under 200. But it is Anniversary.
And it is RF camera.
Cost of 4x5 are actually not what high. Taking picture is very slow, you can't take a lot of them. I haven't finished my first 25 pack after first five weeks. I'm also taking less pictures with 135 and 120.
You could also use 120 film back in 4x5 and still benefit from movements.

i don't own a speed graphic but for you i would recommend a real view camera where you can do all lens movement possible. would serve very well for your B&W work.

join largeformat forum and visit their classified sections, you can find some cheap view cameras in there.
there was a calumet 4x5 view camera going for $100 there before, but that's just the bellows.
you'll also need
-lens
-lens board
-4x5 film holders
-dark cloth
-focusing loupe
-cable release

I'm waiting for the next batch of Wanderlust cameras as eventually I would like to travel with 4x5

Yeah, I thought the price was a bit high as well, although I find that the store is almost always open to negotiation on their prices.

I figure if I shoot mostly Delta 100, it'll cost somewhere in the area of $4.90 per shot (until I have enough room to start self-developing, which would be a fast way to drop costs) which I suppose isn't too bad. Unless I'm traveling, I tend to shoot 35mm slowly, usually only 2-3 rolls per month, so I imagine a box of 25 would last me a month or two anyway...

I think I'll wait until I find something with more movements. I actually spent a few hours reading through largeformat forum last night, and will join later today. And funnily enough, I also happened on the Wanderlust cameras yesterday as well! It looked like an interesting idea, and I'll be keeping my eye on them as well.

On a random note, do you know if there are any stores where you can still buy sheets of Velvia 50 in North America? I'd like to try shooting some 4x5 slides along with B&W, but I only see Velvia 100 and Provia, despite Fuji's site indicating that 50 is still around in 4x5...

That first photo is awesome! Have you printed any 4x5 work yet?

Thanks! No I haven't done any printing yet but am planning to this October.
trying to gather all the materials for now, have a friend that has a 4x5 enlarger sitting in his parent's basement and he'll lend it to me.
he's going to teach me how to enlarge and print too

I checked both Freestyle and B&H and yeah, it looks like they dont have 4x5 Velvia 50, bummer, i guess ill go with Velvia or Provia 100 instead

Currently shooting HP5+, FP4 and Ektar 100


if any of you guys are interested, I have a MOD 54 to develop 4x5 sheets in a Paterson tank for sale.
No longer needed since I use Jobo

Can anyone share any shots of Kodak Ultramax 400, ideally on a later model consumer grade EOS (like an Elan 7) with a fast prime?

Here's one. Ultramax 400, Nikon N90S (kinda like an Elan). I think this was with a zoom, though, can't remember, may have been a 50mm lens.

I took these on an Olympus OM-1 and 50mm f/1.8.

I won 30 sheets of 4x5 Provia 100F (2008) and 50 sheets of 4x5 Velvia 50 (1999 and 2002)
so I should be good with 4x5 for a really long time, just need to stock on B&W now.

also bought a 4x5 Enlarger with holders, trays, 50/90/135 lenses and easel for $50!
just need to get paper, stop bath and safe light and i should be set on printing too.


some GF670 portraits (6x6 is Pan F plus, 6x7 is Across 100)
