About 6:30, the heat broke and clouds
rolled in. Beautiful
light. And the Model A coupe was shouting 'drive me!'
So I threw the 5X7 Speedy kit in
the trunk and headed
up to the grocery store to get some Turtle Wax for the
done with the 10" component of a 7" Gundlach Hyperion wide open f6.3
After that I cruised through old
Tonopah looking for a
venue for my muse, the late '31 Model A coupe.
Down an alley these old garage buildings
for the job.
done with the 12" Struss Diffusion lens.
So we have a mini comparison of
2 big name lenses, and
an old favorite 'no-name' meniscus thrown in for good measure.
Struss 12" wide open
The first 2 are done with Gunlach
Hyperion 7", except I
took the front off and used the rear group alone, which is
a fine 10" f6.3 diffusion lens.
done with the ancient 'no-name' LBB&Co. achromatic meniscus lens
Next is the Struss. By the
way, you can click on these if
you're interested in seeing a much larger file. Much is lost
in the small jpg's that are necessary for the page to load
and look right. The bigger files are 5X7 @ 360 DPI
Finally, I pulled out the LBB &
Co. Meniscus lens for 2 shots.
Why'd you stop at 6? you say. Because that's what
fits in a JOBO 3006 tank, of course :~'))
