  1. Re: Is this because of light leaking? Or overdevelopment?

    It could be some bellows sag is shadowing a portion of the negative, but if I was betting, I'd put my money on not enough developer in the tank to fully cover the negative.
  2. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    Hey, you're right, it is just turned upside down. Thanks, man. The only time it's backwards is if you're viewing from the lens side (like having positive paper in the film holder)

    Re: FPP super c-41 kit missing fixer

    If you watch the video in the link, it describes the fixer as just a plain Jane non hardening fixer. Any standard fixer should do the trick. On the FPP site they also list another C-41 kit that...

    Re: Light leaks

    A light leak would cause a darkened area in your negative, not a lighter area. It looks like something might be blocking light from hitting the film. Check inside the camera around the bellows near...
  5. Re: Focusing loupe for Graflex RB45 - presbyopia alert

    I guess you're a newbie at this getting old thing. Welcome to the club. Just hang your reading glasses on a string around your neck, just like you would for a loupe. Take them on or off as...
  6. Re: Focusing loupe for Graflex RB45 - presbyopia alert

    The tall hood on the Graflex is going to be a problem for viewing with a loupe. Maybe your reading glasses are not optimized for the distance from the top of the hood to the ground glass. I'd...

    Re: Issue with film holder

    It looks like it might be some exposure fogging, since there's a distinct density change rather than a thin line. The edges of the film don't look like they're affected, so the film holder looks...
  8. Re: B&W Film Completely Blank After Processing

    No edge markings, or no dark leader section (on 35mm), means that the film wasn't developed. I'd use distilled water from the grocery store to mix with your developer, instead of your suspect...

    Re: Where’s all my zone system experts??

    I suspect that sledgehammering your negs to whimpering submission would probably result in finer grain, but I have to admit it's the first time I've heard of this technique. Is it in the official...

    Re: Cheap 4X5 Cameras are Everywhere

    Yeah, in that 2010 time frame the bottom fell out of the film camera market. Digital was now good enough for anybody, and had so many advantages for both pros and amateurs alike. I bought a lot of...

    Avatars not visible when logged in

    I just noticed something strange today, but I'm not sure if it's something new, or has been this way all along.

    I usually view this forum without logging in, and only log in when I intend to post....
  14. Re: so, do you guys consider my 6x9 to be "large format"?

    Hmmm, Methinks that standards may have slipped a bit over the last few years (loose clamp screws maybe), or have the LF Police been getting soft from too many donuts.

    Re: Close focussing distance

    This is exactly correct, but it's not intuitive. The film plane needs to be at least 4 times the focal length from your subject. With a folding view camera, like the Wista, you'll be doing...

  22. Re: Software for Converting Scanned Color Negatives

  23. Re: Software for Converting Scanned Color Negatives

    Here's an oversimplified explanation, but it should give you the gist of what to do.

    Negative film is inherently very low contrast, and it is intended to be used with high contrast printing...

    Re: Issue with Photo Merge & DSLR scans

    Just a guess, but maybe at 1:1 the resolution is enough to pick up the film grain, so the software can use that for alignment. Maybe at 1.5:1 the grain isn't quite large enough, and the fuzziness...
  30. Re: Setting Up a Local Network for File Transfer

    In the statement above you say you have a Drop Box account, but what you actually have is a Dropbox account (no space between "drop" and "box") :). That's why it's so confusing. Dropbox is great...
  31. Re: Setting Up a Local Network for File Transfer

    I wanted to make sure that anyone else reading this thread doesn't start thinking that the Drop Box folder is somehow key to file sharing. It really shouldn't be used at all for basic file sharing...
  32. Re: Setting Up a Local Network for File Transfer

    Hi Ari, you're still missing some key points about file sharing, specifically relating to the use of the Drop Box folder. It's not causing you a problem, due to the way you've got both your...
  33. Re: Setting Up a Local Network for File Transfer

    O.K., I've been thinking how to explain this, and decided to take a crack at it.

    It seems like you're interpreting "sharing" as something similar to "syncing". That would be a reasonable...

  35. Re: Setting Up a Local Network for File Transfer

  36. Re: Setting Up a Local Network for File Transfer

    Yes, it's normal that others on the network can access designated folders on the sharing computer. Designating a folder as shared simply gives others on the network acceAss to it. You probably...
  37. Re: Setting Up a Local Network for File Transfer

    Here's my guess on what's happening. If you have the same user id for both Macs, and the Drop Box is specific to the user, then it's essentially the same drop box as far as the network is concerned....

    That's very interesting. I didn't know that Drop Box in the Public folder is different from the Dropbox cloud service. The reading I've done so far indicated that the Drop Box is for clients such...
  39. Re: Setting Up a Local Network for File Transfer

    Dropbox is a cloud service, so your file has to go up to the internet to be stored in the cloud, and then comes back from the internet to go into your M1 Mac. That's a complicated and unnecessary...
  40. Re: Setting Up a Local Network for File Transfer

    It would be interesting to see if file sharing works in the opposite direction. In other words, turn on file sharing on the M1 Mac so it acts as the server, then see if the old Mac Mini can connect...
