I finished converting an old broken Speed Graphic to a field camera...I remove a lmost everything except the box, back rails, and lens board, and paint it with t extured black.
My objective is high quality contact B/W prints for mounting and display in sequ enced arrangements. Two questions:
1. I usually use standard printing paper to make roll film proof sheets, but it was suggested to me a while back to use "Azo" chloro- bromide paper for 4x5 con tacts if I want to display them. What difference might I see and what is the av ailability of this paper?
2. Does anyone know where I can obtain a wooden spring style contact print fram e? Once in a while one will appear on e-bay, but you might think it's the Crown Jewels...they bid far above what it's worth!
