    Yes! Before I did this, my Brownie Hawkeye was taking pictures that looked like they were snapped by my grandmother back in 1955. One lens flip was all it took to bring my photography to the 21st century!

    I'd concentrate on that binocilar reflex viewer... or your agitation technique... or maybe you should get it right in the camera to start with...

    Actually, you should probably just do what Whitey said.

    It could have been a 16"x20" instead.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    ( you know the one ) that the larger the film area the better

    the viewer is coming along, but i have to mail awy for german glass
    the local optician suggested which diopters i should use to help previsualize
    my reduction enlargement scheme
    but it takes a while to get the glass ground down to a bifocal ...

    id do what whitey said 2nite, but i cant watch reo chuckwagon videos while i agitate, and im
    cause they have a viral backbeat i use to help me keep time
    my metronome broke

    I've got it!!! That sideways smiley guy I used gave me an idea...

    Turn your view camera on it's side into vertical position (don't just rotate the back, the lens has to turn sideways too) that way the image is halfway corrected. Then just stand to the opposite side and you only have to look at the groundglass with your head turned sideways and the image will be corrected. You're welcome.
