    Wow, that's a lot, even when converted to metric!
  2. Re: Film Developing Rant and CineStill DF96 Monobath - Am I Lazy?

    It sounds like the problem is that you've taken a digital mindset to film. 45 rolls of film in 2 weeks means hundreds to thousands of photos, and that's a digital mindset. It's the kill them all...

    Re: DIY Basebord?

    I think you're making things way more difficult than necessary by trying to level the enlarger. Let the enlarger remain unleveled, and make a secondary or "false" baseboard that you can adjust to be...

    Re: Foot candle to aperture and ISO.

    If you already have a gray card you can use that with your through the lens camera meter. Just fill the frame with the gray card, and it won't matter what the field of view of the meter is.

    Re: Developing tank advice

    If I'm doing multiple sheets I'll use a Jobo inversion tank with a 6 sheet spiral reel, but only use 4 sheets to avoid problems.

    I've also been thinking about using a 4 sheet stainless steel rack...

    Re: DIY Basebord?

    Since you're sticking to 16x20 or smaller, it might make sense to just align your easel by putting some pads under the corners. This could work if you're not moving the easel around much, or...

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

    I've been very impressed with Gabe's work as well. It makes me wonder if other people are utilizing new approaches for b&w too. This new hybrid analogue/digital world has really opened up a lot...

    Re: Linhof Technika III vs later models

    The IV, V, and Master all work basically the same way, and all share the same lens boards, backs, and most accessories. If cost is the primary concern, then a used model that is in good working...
  12. Poll: Re: Poll: How do you process large format black and white film?

    O.K., I figured out how to add the poll at the top. The poll options are worded a bit differently so they could meet the 80 character limit.

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

    I'm trying to get a sense of how people are using b&w large format film these days.

    In the prehistoric era, that I'm from, we used to do all the developing and printing at home. Nowadays, it's...
  15. Re: Cambo Lenged Plus 8x10 - rear rise lock doesn't work.

    It may take a few applications. Try dripping the lighter fluid on a thin wire that can get down to the shaft. It's been a while since I did it on mine, but I do remember it wasn't a simple one...
  16. Re: Is Horseman Camera Misleading Us Re Movements?

    If you can even find a Toyo VX125 it's probably going to be expensive. Any of the top line models from the likes of Cambo, Linhof, Sinar, Toyo, Horseman, Arca-Swiss, Plaubel and others are going to...

  18. Re: Is Horseman Camera Misleading Us Re Movements?

    I'd never used a Horseman before, but I did like the look of them, and when one popped up out of the blue last year, I decided to get it. No off center tilts. and no base tilts, but it does have...

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Thanks for all the info, Gabe. I've been thinking about doing digital stitching for large format, but this is the first time I've really seen it in action (that I know of). I look forward to seeing...
  20. Re: Is Horseman Camera Misleading Us?

    The Cambo Master has it as well. I'm not sure how the Arca Swiss Orbit works. Maybe it does too.

    In most center tilt monorail view cameras the rear tilt axis is in front of the film plane. if the tilt axis was through the film plane the rear standards will block the ability to insert a...

    That's a really great description, Gabe. Have you also done flatbed scanning? If so, how does it compare? How easy/difficult is the stitching in Lightroom? Your shot on Provia with the trees in...

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Very beautiful work, Gabe.

    I see on the Flickr link that you're doing multi-shot digital stitching of the film image with a DSLR. Could you provide a brief description of how you do that?
  24. Re: Cambo Lenged Plus 8x10 - rear rise lock doesn't work.

    The extra knobs appear to be the attachment points for a wire frame support for the bellows. It keeps the bellows from sagging when extended, and is probably unique to the 8x10 version.

    There's a...
  25. Re: Should Kodak/Fuji rethink color sheet film for room temp processing?

    If sales of color sheet film are now less than b&w sheet film then I don't think that color film is sustainable in the marketplace. Fuji now doesn't make any b&w film themselves anymore, so I can't...
  26. Re: Should Kodak/Fuji rethink color sheet film for room temp processing?

    My own interest now is in a hybrid workflow for color. I'd like to use film for original capture in large and medium format. After that it would be scanned for further Photoshop manipulation and...
  27. Re: Should Kodak/Fuji rethink color sheet film for room temp processing?

    It would be interesting to know how much b&w sheet film is sold compared to color sheet film. Maybe someone from a larger retailer that sells both could give us some perspective. I'm guessing that...
  28. Re: Should Kodak/Fuji rethink color sheet film for room temp processing?

    Tri-color filters over the camera lens so I can shoot black and white separations. O.K. for stuff that doesn't move. Scan and align the layers in Photoshop to get a color image.
  29. Re: Should Kodak/Fuji rethink color sheet film for room temp processing?

    I guess my own experience is somewhat unique. I started with b&w development in the early 70's, and then graduated to color transparencies with Agfachrome 50S in the later 70's. Most of that color...
  30. Re: Should Kodak/Fuji rethink color sheet film for room temp processing?

    I don't think 826527 is trying to hex this forum, Mr Can, ..... but I can't be sure.

    Still though, his/her/it's post on the history of color processing temps clearly shows that room temperature...

    Re: Pentax digital spotmeter battery drain?

    Sometimes it's something as simple as some condensation preventing proper contact. This is the time of year where it's likely to happen, since the humidity can still be high and the temperature can...
  32. Re: Should Kodak/Fuji rethink color sheet film for room temp processing?

    Can we at least agree that large and medium format color film is essentially dead as a product or tool for commerce? If that's the case, then it's only artists and hobbyists left using these films....
  33. Re: Should Kodak/Fuji rethink color sheet film for room temp processing?

    Like it or not, the reality is that film has to be "hobbyist" centric now to survive. The mass market went digital long ago, and it's never coming back to film. Black and white film exists today...
  34. Re: Should Kodak/Fuji rethink color sheet film for room temp processing?

    We're in a catch 22 situation with large format color film. Color films are designed for high speed machine processing, since time is money. Machines are expensive though, so you need to have a...
  35. Re: Should Kodak/Fuji rethink color sheet film for room temp processing?

    I could be wrong, but it's always been my understanding that low temp processing of C-41 and E-6 produce very badly mismatched color curves. What I'm hoping for is a tweaked film and process that is...
  36. Should Kodak/Fuji rethink color sheet film for room temp processing?

    From other threads here it seems clear that large format is now the realm of artists and hobbyists. It doesn't make sense any more for daily professional use, and hasn't for years now. Maybe it's...
  37. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    Probably the last remaining stock. None of the usual suspects in Canada have any left.
  38. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    Maybe Fuji just forgot that they made Provia 100F. It seems to be out of stock everywhere too.
  39. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    Is there anything color left from Fuji in 4x5 or 8x10, or is this now the end of the road?
