[quote name='sheeep' post='1694417' date='May 11 2007, 03:49 AM']Throw in somewhere that a "normal" lens is an 80mm for 120 film. Annd I'm pretty sure you need an 80mm lens for enlargers to print it.[/quote]
I think you need a 150mm for your enlarger, or atleast that is the norm.

Nah, I think you need an 80mm cause for 35mm you use a 50mm. I did however make a ghetto neg holder out of two sheets of glass and printed some 35mm MF shots using a 50mm?

You can't just rip shit from Wikipedia. And you didn't mention (maybe, fuck reading all that) the two compelling reasons to go MF from a skate photography POV:

1/500 flash sync,
Shallower depth of field.

Enlargements is arguable, because most stuff won't be blown up past mag size.

So, in conclusion, lunch time.

Ok, I figured this should go in here, so I dont have to make a new thread cluttering things up.

My Bronica 120 back has a light leak, I cant tell where it's coming from, but I know its there. So, do I need to buy a new back and a new instert, or just a replacement back?

you don't need a 80mm to print 120 if your enlarger has a bellow system between the lamp and the film. Or the film and the lens, I don't remember, I have been out of the darkroom for too long.

From what I've seen, a 503cx would be just as nice if not nicer then 500cms. They're newer, and on Keh right now, you can get a 503cx for cheeper than a 500cm body.

the 500cx is just a newer 500cm I think, it has like ttl and bullshit like that that you will probably never use. Newer means better condition and more reliable, but it must have more electronics than a 500cm.

Advantage of black hassys-when they come in bgn condition with a few nicks and scratches all it takes is 10 minutes with a black sharpie to bring it up to ex condition.
