    View Camera Outfit

    I have the whole thing and it is just sitting. I have taken some wonderful images with it and I want someone to use it and enjoy it. It is in great condition, like all my babies. I checked the shutter and bellows, they are great. It includes: Calumet 45N 4x5 View Camera with Monorail Caltar II...

    What kind of direction do you give your clients?

    First off, your client needs to be comfortable with you. Then you just talk to them as you shoot. Talk about anything, then when you are ready tell them to give you that great smile of theirs. They will do it not even thinking. As far as kids go, peek a boo works with most of them until they get...

    How much do you rely on Auto Settings?

    I would suggest that you learn manual first then when you understand shutter speed and aperture you can let the camera work for you. :wink:

    Freezing temperature and film speed

    Favourite Fine Grain Combination

    I have never used Accufine with Tech Pan but I would figure that it is too contrasty. This is Tech Pan developed in Technidol. Oh, how I miss that film.

    Film developing

    Take a look at the labs in your area, both pro and amateur and give them a try. I think the best lab is one that takes care of their equipment, has people that are knowledgable working there and that you can build a relationship with. That doesn't necessarily mean they are a pro lab. Plenty of...

    Film SLR

    I have quite a few as that is pretty much all I shoot. Nikon FA (2) Nikon F3 (1) Hasselblad 500 CM (2) Calumet 4x5 (1) I normally shoot the blad with black and white and digital can't compare yet. I do have digital but it never gets used.

    Options for a new camera?

    If what you want to do is landscape why not go large format. You could get a 4x5 with a 135mm or 90mm setup for under 500. There is nothing like it for landscapes.
