    Re: Large Format Landscapes

  3. Poll: Re: Poll: How do you process large format black and white film?

    I’ve switched to the SP-445 recently from handrotating a jobo tank, and it was definitely worth the expense, being able to process 4x5 film using inversion in just 1/2l of chemicals has been...

  7. Re: Opinion: Would a 90mm f8 or f6.8 lens be too dark for dawn and dusk landscape?

    Make that at least 200 sheets, 4x5 sheet of Foma is $1.20. (Or perhaps 250, the only CF I see on eBay is ~$400, and they will only get more expensive, as is the general trend with all of the analogue...

    Beautiful, so well put together, and such lovely colour palette. I'd have never guessed that is Porta 400, I have never managed such lovely green tones with that film.

    Re: Inexpensive 4x5 field cameras

    No, they are far too expensive for my kind of amateur photography, not least because I rarely resort to a wide angle lens, tending toward 180 most of the time. Also, they seem impossible to find for...
