    Anyone considered or tried Vantablack paint?

    Not actually the real research Vantablack, but a very closely related light absorbing cousin: https://culturehustle.com/products/b...t-art-material

    It seems ideal for a small contrast boost in older lenses via coating the inside baffles and tube, not to mention inside view cameras and associated items like lens shades.

    Since I'm currently restoring an 8x10 and the interior spaces will all need re-painting matte black...

    I think I'll buy some then, just to give it a go. Won't be until Summer until there is a view camera frame in shape for it, but patience is a virtue.

    I just received a bottle of that a couple weeks ago and really had no idea what I might do with it.
