    Re: Need Help With Sistan (AdoStab II)

    I've used Sistan, no longer do because I worry about the risk of problems that can become apparent only much later, when it's too late to do anything about it. In part that's because I don't like to...

    Re: Need Help With Sistan (AdoStab II)

    This is correct. If you selenium tone, use the Adostab as the final bath after that, the last step before you hang up the prints to dry.

    Re: Switch from Epson to Canon printer?

    If you're looking at a 24" Canon, then compare the ink costs with a 24" Epson. Those, too, use larger cartridges with lower per-ml cost compared to the smaller desktop models.

    Those both come mounted in #3 shutters. If a listing seems to indicate otherwise, it is an error.

    Re: 7x17 Chamonix vs Ritter vs x?

    Len - no worries! I have a 7x17 Korona and a 12x20 F&S. Whatever they're called, and even with their limitations compared to current models, they're wonderful cameras.

    Among the Korona models, the 5x12, 7x17 and 8x20 were branded "Panoramic View" and the 12x20 was branded "Banquet Camera". There weren't multiple models with different features within each format.

    Fair enough! Given your needs the Chamonix certainly is worth a close look. I'll have to defer to others who have experience with Richard Ritter's cameras to comment on those.

    KEH uses generic product pictures, not photographs of the actual item being sold. So you can't tell about minor within-model variations like the strap lugs by looking at their posted illustrations.
