    In the year and a half I've been on photo.net I think I've gotten two photo-related spam emails (both in the past two months). Since I use the same email address for here and photo.net, those emails...

    how old are we?

    I'm hoping to be response #100. I never would have guessed there were 100 LF shooters that frequent this board (and I can think offhand of at least a handful that have not responded).

    Anyway, I'm...
  3. Yet another"which LF should I buy" post -- but w/ redeemable qualities

    John, I will second the vote for the Discovery. I love mine. Fairly lightweight, easy to use, well built, more movements than I have ever needed. It's true there is poor manufacturer support in the...

    Bino Viewer or ground glass?

    David (Goldes), the viewer is easy to pop on and off, has a magnifier in it, and allows you to see the entire frame. I live in Minneapolis and know you work at MCAD so if you would like to...
  5. Want to buy 8x10 set-up used: is this possible for less than $1000

    Another option is the Kodak 2D, I got one for $600 with new bellows. Midwest had a metal 8x10 (maybe a Calumet C-1) for about $400 -- good cameras from what I read, but insanely heavy. Holders should...

  8. official advisory from Fujifilm USA about commercial air travel with film. Also advice about postal and delivery services

    It sounds like you didn't expose the film at all. The most likely culprits are that you either didn't remove the darkslide or forgot to cock the little shutter lever thingy before taking the photo...

  16. Improving agitation in hand-rolling Jobo tanks, specific to materials

    You need to consider both your maximum bellows draw and rail length. Both need to be sufficiently long. But, assuming a 400mm lens and a 490mm rail I came up with a minimum focusing distance of about...
