    Feb 25 to May 6 is quite a difference. Maybe mine will arrive by next March. I'm not giving them anymore money. I go to store read it and put it back on the shelf, just like the masses. It's the only...

    Re: $5,000 Postcards

    I agree. The only time I've seen anything close to this is from someone like Robert Gendler, who uses a remotely controlled 20inch reflector telescope and stacks images taken from an SBOG camera.
  3. Re: Where can I get some b&w negs developed and scanned??

    Send it to Rochester! I haven't used them for scanning but if their scanning is half as good as their development skills, it will be fantastic.

    The "clips" on the front standard that hold the lens board in place on my Sinar F are worn..for lack of a better term. When I activate the lever to raise them to insert the board, they do not retract...

    Welcome Alicia,

    I've been on the same hunt since last year. ICP has courses but they consume an entire semester, I think. The folks at CAP told me they'd be running an intro to LF class in the...

    Re: Sinar F2 Too Heavy For Field Work

    Sometimes I think we photographers spend too much time worrying about how to lug our crap around and not enough time using it. There is no perfect camera or camera bag.
