Perhaps want to think about Keith Canham's cameras?? Outstanding build and service, though heavier than the RR (don't know by how much).
Lovely Master Technika, B571059. But I'm keeping her regardless, whatever you come up with for her age. She's a very graceful lady.
Years of digitally scanning and printing commercially processed film. Finally put in a darkroom so I can begin to learn how to make photographs. So far, haven't learned, but the process is...
Too bad they won't sell any to us poor unwashed. Pioneers only, whoever they may be.
A couple of thoughts. I do use the top lashes, always have plans that never actually happen to use the loops with some carabiners, and do use the inside pockets. I'd be lost without the...
Are these guys for real? Many years, never heard of them and they have stuff in inventory that most dealers haven't had in years. What gives?
And all this time I just thought it was Newton's Rings and blamed Doug!
Looks like a fabulous piece of gear until you see the price. Ouch! That's an 8x10 kit right there. But on the other hand if it will get the camera out of the house, where it does nobody any...
The side pockets on the Photobackpacker P1 can hold six 5x7 film holders in each, seven if you like a really tight fit.
Great shots, great glass, got to give a lot of love to those lenses. That Euryscop just sings, though I think she's pining for a bouquet to shoot. And a Heliar never disappoints. Who needs depth...
I'll probably up my quickload request to ten boxes.
Enjoyed a 3772 for the last two or so years, use it for a Canham 8x10 with lenses up to 3+ lbs and as long as 30" with good stability, as well as assorted lighter weight cameras. Very happy with...
I use a Schneider 58/5.6 SAXL on a helical focusing mount without the short focus device on my Master Technika. It is a very nice setup that requires no special acrobatics other than dropping the...
I used the manual rear feed for cut sheets from rolls, but it was frequently difficult to get the printer to take the sheets because of the excessive curl. Flattening first would certainly help.
Open. It's too pretty looking at all the little green lights on the GFI outlets.
If I might ask, what is your wet mounting procedure? It wouldn't be out of the ordinary for me to be screwing mine up somehow.
I found the most important step with the holder was adjusting the height for best focus. I think wet mounting does provide a small incremental improvement in scan quality, perhaps mostly by insuring...
Film holders would get even heavier to truck around with that Chinese lead added to the film emulsion.
I am probable, wishfully.
If the price is reasonable I'd be good for perhaps five boxes of each size, give or take, depending on the weather and the other usual variables that can influence film acquisition and...
yeah, seeing that picture inverted and reversed, trying to figure out how you get the darkcloth to rise when it's on backwards and wondering what kind of animal stands on the ceiling with an upside...
yeah, but if you put water in the drum the film will get wet.
OK, so anybody got any good solutions for trying to truck an 8x10 Sinar P around? Even getting it down from the second floor of the house to the front door is daunting.
8 1/4" on 4x5 Portra 160NC.
Well, that was quick. I guess we don't need sleeves.
This simply means that the pocket is large enough to accommodate a sleeved negative. The 810-1HB gives you the option to use a sleeve or...
I've sent another query off to Print File with your quoted instructions, John. We'll see how they reply.

My current favorite paper is Hahnemuhle Museum Etching, although it is more textured than their rag paper (and a bit heavier) so may not be what you are looking for. I find it produces lovely...
I was having similar problems to those you describe. I had my Cube adjusted by Bob Watkins of Precision Camera in Niles, IL, the national service center for Arca-Swiss, and it's been a...
Has anybody had any experience with the Light Craft variable density ND filters? Not quite as pricey as the others.
I am also interested, emailed Marv today.
I use Aztek Kami wet mounting fluid which is volatile, and I just let it evaporate and put the film back in its sleeve without any cleaning. Kami usually doesn't leave much in the way of any...
I kind of think that by the time you've done all the stretching and taping (after all the cleaning from the previous stretching and taping) all without touching anything with your hands (a trick that...
Just happy to have bought your app and support all your good work.
?Porta 160 and 400?
If it is asleep hitting the OK button should wake it up. Failing that, try pouring some coffee on it and sending it back to Epson. It is not, in my experience (trying to run it wireless as a USB...
Yes, keep it so you can sell me the 47XL.
(just kidding, I hope, though in a moment of madness....)
Oops, screwed up above. But anyway, I've been using profiles for the 7900 for Canson and Harmon papers on the 4900 without a problem. There is a profile for Exhibition Fiber, but I can't remember...
I couldn't find an Epson Exhibition Fiber ICC profile for the 4900 and am wondering if 7900 & 9900 ICC profiles are appropriate (for the 4900)?
