Yellow Dot Bausch & Lomb 12"
Where do these yellow dots come from? Here is yet another enigmatic yellow mark on the rim of a lens - this one an uncoated, apertureless B&L projection lens or something of the like, mounted on a Speed Graphic lens board. Proceeds go to New55. This went for a really low price on ebay which was disappointing. One of the biggest obstacles we are facing with New55 is the paradox that many of our supporters will spend $3000 on a DSLR but think that $6 for a 4x5 shot (that the DSLR can never do) is too much. How can we present this in a cost per shot, or price per yield manner? I think it is hard to do. Five good photographs in a month would be a decent yield, though that depends on what one considers to be good.
