    What do you mean? Isn't the dark cloth for covering the lens?

    No, you put the mosquito netting over the lens when you want dreamy. that way the mosquitos attack the lens. Then you put the darkcloth over your own head and it leaves you to look like you're having a good night's sleep dreaming.
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    whew im glad im sorta doing it right ...
    a few years ago when i bought my entry lf camera, an ebrony 14x11.
    i thought i was supposed to get dark sloth.
    already broke from my 8000$$ camera i had to borrow it from the local zoo,
    and it was too lazy to help me,
    i figured it was supposed to carry my gear
    luckily i was told by a friend dark cloth.. much cheaper and no scratches
    the camera was a total waste of effert, the image on that one was upside down too.
    you would figure a camera that cost that much would have a right side up image ...

    chris
    are you on level 3?
    it gets better after you load the film..

    ===
    an email this time
    they say the way i was told about the lens was backwards.. backwolly front schneider ... but the rochester glass is from the wrong era and might
    mess with the german glass .. pre war us glass and all ..

    im going to contact a machinist for a qpte, hopefully its less than the bino viewer they only gave me back half my $

    The pre war wolly goes in front of the post war schneider, if you have a post war wolly it goes between the cells of the schneider, and if you have a pre war schneider you need to run it through the blender to get that dreamy look. I usually set the blender on frappe, I get that nice 50s glow. This is all moot if you don't know how to load the film packs into your cell. Is it a slider? or open face?
