For the camera... T mounts should be readily available.  I ordered one for Canon EOS a few months ago from B&H I think.  It's a Bower brand.  That screws onto the flange that fits into the bellows.  If you don't have that flange, that may be harder to source.  I seem to recall that B&H had quite a bit of T-mount items so maybe they have it all.  I would have assumed that part would come with the unit.  I have (and still use) one of these units that I purchased new in the mid eighties.  I know my unit came with those parts.  Even if you have to make something suitable, it really shouldn't be that difficult and could probably be accomplished with some epoxy and some other T-mount parts.

For the enlarging lens, I used epoxy to attach a Leica thread flange off of an enlarger to some odd lens mount part I had laying around the studio that fit into the bellows mount opening.  I looks like it might be another Nikon T-Mount part with the enlarging lens threaded piece glued to the front.  The Nikon bayonet end fits into the opening in the bellows and is held by the the set screws on the side that would normally grip a flange.  Been using it for years and it works quite well.

Hey, just wanted to let everyone know, turns out that there's a new feature in LR4 when converting to DNG.  If you check the EMBED FASTLOAD DATA when converting, the resulting DNG's embedding JPEG won't be seen by OSX.

That only took 8 months to figure out.  Adobe Help needs some updating...

Hi Duane,

If you haven't tried it already, eBay might be a source for the parts you need.

Good luck with your search.

I have recently acquired a Beseler Dual Mode Slide Duplicator in good condition.  I’m trying to locate a source for purchasing the camera body and enlarging lens adapters for the Bellows.  I want to use my Nikon D300 on the duplicator. From studying the units manual, I need a Nikon DSLR, T Ring adapter and a Male T Flange to install the camera on top of the bellows.  I will need a  Female T Flange and a T mount for a 39 mm lens for  installation on the lower end of the  bellows.  I called Beseler to inquire about any remaining spare parts for their slide duplicator units and they said there is no remaining inventory.  I would appreciate any help or tips on locating these essential  parts.   Thanks

I have learnt more about Vuescan DNG TIFF-files since I wrote the above.
I noticed earlier that "Update DNG previews & metadata" in LR3/4 changes the file.
I have now found that by opening Vuescan DNG TIFF-files in my Photoshop CS3 (i.e. first automatically opening in ACR and then in CS3) and then just looking at the images, closing them down (without any saving!) ALSO CHANGE the Vuescan DNG-TIFF image!

After a contact with Ed Hamrick at Vuescan, he found out that there has been a JPG ENCODING of my submitted Vuescan DNG TIFF-files!
There has been a compression in LR and PS respectively and instead of 48B colour there is now only 24B.
So the answer to my own question above, "Is Vuescan DNG TIFF safe to use?", is:


(I thought a dng file would never be possible to change! But I was wrong!)

Nowadays, I apply "write protection" on all my Vuescan DNG TIFF-files, which makes it possible to view them in PS. And all adjustments, if any, of the images are stored then in an xmp-file.
Furthermore, I do NOT apply "Update DNG preview & metadata" in LR any more! And the "write protection" mentioned will stop me as well.

You will have to enter your license code in manually.  For all of your settings, database, etc, check out the PDF Manual from the ImageIngester website.  Marc has the location of all the files you will need to transfer listed in there for both Mac and PC.  Transfer them over and you should be set.  I just did it yesterday for my Mac and it was easy.

Good luck.

Even though this is an old post I was unable to find the answer anywhere I searched, so for the benefit of future users:

On Windows 7 I found all II settings in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\ImageIngesterPro

I copied all files and folders to my new Windows 8 computer and placed in the same catalog, and presto! all my settings are back on my new machine (except the license code which I entered manually).

It's also worth remembering to include the patj as well as the Adobe settings in your regular backups.

Best regards

After placing images in collections and then working on them, usually one must go back to the original folder location and add the revision to the collection. However, occasionally, it seems that revisions are automatically added to the collection which is much preferred. It happens I put RAW files into the collection before working on them; the TIF revisions are staying in the collection with the RAW files. Does anyone know why this happens so I can keep doing it?

I haven't received a reply to my email inquiry to NeoFinder support (not a very good sign,) but I think I've answered my question, in the negative, after finding the following info in the User Guide:

"If two copies of NeoFinder change the very same catalog at the same time, results can be unpredictable. In most company structures, that is no real problem. One or more administrators work with the catalog data, add new catalogs, or modify existing ones. The vast majority of users will use NeoFinder only to browse and search the catalogs." Then it goes on to tell you to set all users to read access only using your server software, except for the administrator.

How can you describe such an application as multi-user if only one person can have write access at a time?

This is the page with networking info and that's not specified anywhere... seems misleading!

Well if you follow the link to his Blog you will see it is all Lightroom now.  I guess follow where the gravy train goes. Wink
