  1. Re: Darkroom Automation F-Stop Timer is available again.

    For what it's worth, I read the FAQ's and after reaching the bottom I clicked on the link to the manual, that link doesn't work either.

    It appears it is designed for the USA 115V AC 60Hz system,...

  4. Re: About red safelights. How much red is damaging for the paper

    The minimal experience I have had with a friend doing some videography in my darkroom, is that you will not get brilliant imagery, but quite reasonable imagery with Ilford 902 filters.

    These are...

    Re: How is Large Digital C-prints made?

  13. Re: Heather Oelklaus and her 1977 Chevy Pinhole Camera

  15. Re: Longest focal length telephoto lens with bellows draw under 300 mm

    Gray Nomad, I see you're in Bundy, if ever you are in Melbourne, then you can have an optic nerve and if you have your camera with you, you can have a go with it.

    With regards to the Komura, there isn't a catch, they just do it.

    I still use mine on my wooden 4x5" folder sparingly, it's heavy and care needs to be taken, but it does the job. Below, is a...
