    The autofocus (with more sensors than I could count) was nice too, though I much prefer the viewfinder, controls and focusing screen of my Leica SLR. We both have what we want, I suppose...

    When we broke for lunch (and Margaritas), Chris left me handle the camera. I found it to be MUCH lighter than expected - a lot lighter than my F3/MD4/MK1 combo.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Finally processed my film today, and I posted three quick neg scans over in the standard gallery. Lost a couple of shots to light leaks, but there are a few keepers in there.

    I'll say! Those are very well executed and interesting.

    Got the 8x10 going

    Hey all - Tested my 8x10 studio camera and the lens that some of you saw. You can't tell much by the photo, but it is sharp and has great tonal range. Film is Tri-x. I will be playing with J&C 400 in the near future and also experimenting with Platinum and Azo.

    Is that the Imagon? It's supposed to be a soft lens wide open or with the perforated disks if you have them. Did you stop it down with the regular iris?

    David- That is the Imagon. It was stopped down all the way. Exposure was 1 or 2 seconds. I had 4 sheets and bracketed. I do have one disk which I will play with as time permits. I'm working on getting the field camera together so I can take the lens in the field and hopefully on the next APUG shoot. - Jim

    Interesting. Past f:8 or so, most soft lenses lose the spherical aberration that is largely responsible for the soft effect, and by f:22 or so diffraction becomes enough of a limitation that there isn't too much difference between lenses in general, though there are some things that can't be improved by stopping down. The disks make it possible to reduce the amount of light entering the lens without losing the spherical aberration that causes the soft effect.
