I come from China, would be glad to enter the large format BBS, meet new friends of all countries.
I can't speak English very well, so I need computer translation.If is not accurate, please forgive me.
Salute to large format BBS administrator!

AtlantaTerry, thank you for your Chinese, it seems to have the warmth of home.
I have more than sixty years old, retired. The age of learning a language has been lost. Look at the big picture forum article, can only rely on computer translation.
A lot of discussion of this forum, I have a lot of attraction. And, here you can see old friends and meet new friends. I am very happy.
In China, there are many large format camera photographers and enthusiasts. But because of the relationship between age and language, many people don't know this forum, it is a pity.

Welcome! I lived in Beijing from 1999-2001. I remember a large format camera shop down the alley near the large bookstore north of Longfu shopping alley. Is that still there?

Temple fairs in Beijing should still be under camera shop.Admire your memory.
Right now many of the use of China's large camera, 4 x5 is known as the "stamp",5 x7 few, by many more people use 8 x10 and more cameras.
There are lots of people have their own darkroom.There are many good and have the characteristics of the works.
There are many Internet discussion groups.But also have a spontaneous large format photographer parties and exhibitions every year.
Welcome more friends to understand China's large format photography.


I don't know, speak these here, if, in violation of the provisions of the BBS, I am sorry!

Because I was 63 years old, did not understand English, don't know the regulations of BBS.To avoid violation of provisions, from unnecessary misunderstanding.I also hope to get guidance and help.

Welcome. Your translation program works fine, so it will apparently be easy to communicate. My wife studied in the University of Beijing for a year as an exchange student. There are many bi-lingual Mandarin/English speakers in this area, along with Cantonese/English. But as long as anyone can pronounce "Sinar", we all speak the same.

What large format film do you use? I was using Shanghai black and white 4x5" film but was told that it is not currently available because the factory was in the process of moving to a new location.

Are there other Chinese brands of large format black and white film that we may not know about?

Are black and white film processing chemicals easily available to you or do you have to purchase the raw ingredients then mix your own?

In your own work, what lenses do you like to work with?

Please feel free to post some of your photographs here.

Thank you.
Terry

Hi, I am from Hong Kong, joined this forum 10+ years ago, gave up LF for other things. Recently I cleaned up my dark room, threw away the chemicals (except a batch of Amidol) which I kept all these years and felt I might re-start sometime, so I join this forum again. I still keep the Durst L1200, and some accessories from the Durst L2501. Good to know LF is still alive in China. I used to have a friend in Shanghai who built LF wooden 10x12 cameras. I still have some 10x12 films from him. Good luck and have fun!

Oh that is interesting! I am sure others here would like to see some photographs of your stainless steel developing tank design.

Do the tanks have floating lids? Are they light tight?

Do you have a 4x5 inch version?

Are you taking orders for the tanks?

Hi Terry. The tanks are for sale on ebay. Just google B&W KING. They look quite nice, but I haven't used one.

Atlanta Terry:
I'm a photographer.B&W KING developing tank is my after eight years of research and production.I like to use the darkroom of stainless steel tools.So, B&W KING all developing tank parts adopt the stainless steel manufacturing.B&W KING developing tank with 4 x 5, 5 x7 two specifications.In the United States and more countries, there have been more and more photographers are using it.
B&W KING website: http://www.bw-king.com/, proposed above can answer your questions.
I go to the Large Format Photography Forum, is not to sell my product.Because every large format as a photographer, all have their own choice darkroom equipment standard strictly.The success of the good product, not rely on the sales, but the effect of product and quality.
In addition I has more than 60 years old this year, has gone beyond the age of the efforts to earn money.I think here, know more photographers peers and friends.
I don't understand English, don't know the rules of the BBS, so don't know if I should be in this column, continue to discuss B&W KING products.
The administrator, please understanding.
