    I modified my Super Graphic (4x5 press camera) so that the focusing scale works for a 150mm lens, rather than the original 135mm lens. This is one of the test pics. Not too bad for hand holding a camera that weighs 9.5 lbs. I need to get a 10 lb barbell to increase my wrist strength!

    camera: Super Graphic w/ 150mm Scheider
    flash: Vivitar 285HV bounced off ceiling
    film: 4x5 Polaroid BW ISO 400
    scanned form Polaroid

    Don't throw it out. Seems sharp. I am sure the film will be amazing. Once again your daughter takes the cake.

    Another big ... Awwwwwww.... from me too mate. Very cute shot. A little dark in the back but I think that helps your shot since buby is the focal point. Nice one.

    Quit lying - the beer is what you snarfed down after struggling with that beast of a camera!! :lol:

    Maisy looks precious, as always.... :) A good little girl to hold the pose while Daddy focuses! She's probably used to it by now. ;)

    Love seeing that Polaroid back, babe. :thumbup: What's the name/# of the B&W sheet film again?? I keep wanting to say "Polapan" but that's not right. :scratch:

    That's the old scool #500 model back, and it doesn't always work very well. This one actually turned out better than normal. Of course, me and Polaroid don't really get along. I don't know what the film number is. I was given a bunch of out of date Polaroid film and told the BW was ISO 400 and the color was ISO 100. I used the last of the BW on these shots. I actually just read the small print on the remaining color stuff, and found out that it's ISO 80.
