Are you just going to copy what everyone else photographs there, or do you think for yourself and choose your own subjects and views? If the former, buy postcards - if the latter, you know what to take.
Leitz, Yes there is nonsense written here, and the nonsense is not what I wrote about when I very successfully adapted an enlarger lens. Perhaps I was foolish in experimenting but it worked beautifully and I took some very good photos that way. No animals were injured. Absolutely nothing exploded or overheated.
I'm not bold enough to admit to some of the experiments I've done!
Yeah, the skeptics should just trust us. We've made it work before.
Skeptics indeed! Begging your pardon, but you have provided some rum information yourself -
"Magnification is primarily via the front bellows. Focus is by moving the camera relative to the back of the lens."
There are some bellows whose rear standard is not fixed. Magnification is determined by the lens-camera distance (bellows draw), focus is by moving the entire unit relative to the subject.
"So you should be able to fit one of those bellows together with your enlarger lens, if it has a 39mm (by 1mm thread pitch) male screw thread."
The pitch of the Leica 39mm screw mount is not 1mm, it is 26 threads per inch – just enough difference that one will not engage correctly with the other. As RWR noted, at least one Schneider enlarger lens has a 39x0.75mm mount, which is also the same thread as a 39mm filter.
How do you know that? The OP hasn’t said, and hasn’t bothered to respond to anything. Probably went elsewhere looking for knowledgeable advice.
Putting in my half pence worth here, I agree that without more information from the OP any response is guesswork. Describing how to mount a lens is foolish if he already has a bellows with camera and lens mounted, and he's surely confused if he tried to follow the advice on how to focus! I also recommend that he check the links in the macro section for factual information and ignore all the nonsense posted here.
Allow me show my ignorance by asking what "screw driver focus" is. Thanks.
That's an ignorant way of saying the lens focus is driven by a motor in the camera.
In one of the WARNING boxes on page 17 of my camera manual it says: ALWAYS CHECK WITH THE HOG!
My manual is older than the UHH, but I just updated it. Thanks!
It’s a “raw” photo in the fact that its not been processes. I forgot that this forum worries more about terminology than what my original question.
When you use correct terminology people will think you know what you're talking about.
should I leave the batteries in my cameras when not in use for a few weeks or should I take it out.
What does your user's manual recommend??
A most humorous read. Pity the poor novice trying to learn something!

According to Braczko, the 50 f/1.4 was multicoated since April, 1972. This link says they were multi-coated starting in 1973, from serial number 1280001:http://www.photosynthesis.co.nz/nikon/serialno.html

These card reader vs USB cable debates are always good for some laughs - a lot of strong opinions, few facts. When I bought my first digital camera I asked the rep which I should use. Removing the cover on the camera he asked,
"What's this port for?"
"A USB cable."
"What comes with the camera?"
"A USB cable."
"Do you have another question?"
I think what Leitz meant is that the safe sync in no way can make the 611 mounted any higher as the 611 can not be mounted on the hot shoe.
At least you and GoofyNewfie actually know what a handle-mount flash unit is!
...your strobe will sit slightly higher...
Please explain to us how a Safe Sync will make a Sunpak 611 sit higher.
Hope someone can help with the issue I’m having involving over exposed pictures when using the Gary Fong Lightsphere inside attached to the Canon Speedlight 430exll and shooting with the Canon 77D on auto setting.
This is a bit of oversimplification, but there are several ways to address overexposure with flash. Reduce the sensor's sensitivity (lower ISO). Use a smaller f/stop. Reduce the flash output. Increase the flash-to-reflecting surface distance. Increase the reflecting surface-to-subject distance. Modify the reflecting surface's reflectivity.
As I'm sure you are aware, those who have dumped on your thread with pictures and comments about different systems do you no service.
