    Re: Darkroom vs Scanning

    I have seen more crappy darkroom prints than bad inkjet prints. And about as many mediocre ones from both techniques. A good print depends on the printer (the person) with a good eye and the ability...

    Re: Need Sound Tripod Advice

    I just picked up a screaming bargain—the Leofoto 404C carbon fiber tripod. Plus I think they’re giving an extra 20% off right now. A bit heavy but quite sturdy. And almost 6 ft tall.

    I always thought wetting the film was to get it to adhere to the curved surface of the drum. A “wet gate” is used for motion picture transfer (basically scanning to video) to protect the film and...
