  1. Re: What are the options for the ultra large format color photography?

    Thank you everyone for the great replies!



    Thank you Dan! I had forgotten about Keith Canham. His opinion was that ordering anything but Portra is not realistic in small quantities (my...
  2. What are the options for the ultra large format color photography?

    For quite some time I have been tinkering with an idea to get into the ultra large format photography one day.

    What troubles me is limited options for the color film. I love color photography.

    Re: New Wista DX price

    Yes, no. Imagine you have a mass produced car you once paid $20k new that is not built any more except for special order of $100k. What is the value of your car? My rough bet is that it would be $2k...

    Polaroid 405 holder image frame position

    I have a Polaroid 405 holder (for Fuji FP100c) and what surprises me about it is the position of the image frame.

    It is not in the middle (of the larger 4x5 frame) where I would expect it to be...

    Re: Collodion - Wet Plate Images

    I have been amazed by your images and story.

    I have one question. How much did you pay for the lens at time if this is not a secret. I looks to me that lens like this is today very expensive and...

    Re: Is this where New55 went wrong?

    May I ask what will happen to the...

    So 3 out of 3 (first seller informed me before the...

    Indeed, I did not realize first that this part can be removed. It looked to be well enclosed at the initial inspection.

    Now I realized that the curved cut on the now identified insert has its...

    My recommendation is, Japanese or not, that you ask about the smells before bidding or buying. I have not yet seen this information described adequately.

    The issues might be, but are not limited...

    Could you please elaborate a bit more this statement? What did you do to get sharper image?

    What I have is Toyo 45A Field (in fact Toyo 45AR with the revolving back) so it is much more complicated than much more modular Toyo View.
