  1. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Thanks - I'll check Neewer out. Some affordable C-Stands would be nice. I have a while yet anyway, as I haven't thought of a new picture yet.

    Once again, thanks to everyone for being so helpful.
  2. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Yes, I wasn't even using sand bags, which was pretty stupid. Question, though, is it ok to be using sand bags on aluminium stands? For instance, would the weight rating of the stand go down?

  3. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Okay, so I took a portrait of my pregnant wife just using alluminium stands. I had two manfrotto 004's, which I used to hold an elinchrom Rx style 1200 and 300.

    I wasn't happy using the lighter...

    Re: Portraits from 2022

    Okay, have another print from my (January) Entwined project, which I linked an image from earlier in this thread.

    Hope you don't mind me giving some background to the image.:

    I wanted the image...

    Thank you. I miss Scotland, even though I live in Switzerland now.

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Here's a Scottish themed one. My first Large Format shot outside so go easy on the criticism! :)

    Foma 200

    Messed around with tones in LR and PS, so apologies if this isn't really in keeping...

    Re: Portraits from 2022

    Hi,

    I've been on here a lot looking for help, so thought I would post my first model posed photo (took a landscape a while back that I may also post).

    My wife was pregnant, and I really wanted...
  10. Re: the thread for Kodak XTOL quality control issues

    I've got maybe a tablespoon of hard crystals. The rest of the liquid seems clear. Any ideas as to whether I should use this? My problem is, I don't have a process yet, as I am just starting out,...
  11. Re: the thread for Kodak XTOL quality control issues

    First time mixing Xtol, and I presume it is a bad batch, as I have hard flat crystal structures stuck to the bottom. There are not loads, though, so maybe this is okay? (I've bought some backup...
  12. Re: XTOL not mixing well and not working any more!

    So, do you mean that Xtol always yielded thin negatives? Since reading these posts, I have been wondering about picking up some ID-11 instead. (Just getting back into Largeformat photography, so...
  13. Re: XTOL not mixing well and not working any more!

    Found the Xtol thread. Looks like problem now fixed, but will depend on what batch I have...
  14. Re: XTOL not mixing well and not working any more!

    Is this still a problem? Just bought myself some Xtol here in Switzerland. Don't know the batch date yet, as it is still in delivery.
  15. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    I'm definitely thinking about picking something up cheaply. Its just my 3.5kg strobe making me nervous. Might just be better to drop 200 and get something I know will hold it.
  16. Re: Paterson Orbital - lost base, what can I do?

    Ah, great. Are you heating your water?
  17. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Thanks for your help on this.

    Yes, I can see what you mean about the lip being bigger in the first link. I'll have a look about and see if I can see the one I would need.
  18. Re: Paterson Orbital - lost base, what can I do?

    I'm using 5x7 so should be ok I think, but will need to try it and see I guess.
  19. Re: Paterson Orbital - lost base, what can I do?

    Glad to hear people aren't using the base. Maybe I'll try the water bath too.
  20. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Do you mean I need an adapter?
  21. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Okay, your comment got me searching on the auction site. I've not been able to find anything recent, but I have found what looks like a much older stand. I think it looks like steel, so should be...
  22. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Yes, I've been checking the used auction site out here, and not much comes up. There were some broncolor senior stands, but I didn't think that the load capacity was enough.

    Also, the Avenger you...
  23. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Thanks, everyone. So looks like can use a counterweight or sandbags on a normal light stand. What was confusing me was that I had seen a customer review saying that it wasn't possible to sandbag...
  24. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Ah, ignore me - I've just noticed that the cast iron weights are what you attach to the boom.

    Do you weigh the stand down with sandbags? If so, how are you doing it?
  25. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    I like the Avenger stands, but I think the one I was looking at is probably a bit out of my monetary range if I'm being honest, and they don't really come up used here (in Switzerland). I'm hoping...
  26. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    That seems like a nice setup (the boom). (Also, liked the pictures of your studio earlier)

    How do you attach the cast iron weights to the stands?
  27. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    I'll definitely be employing sandbags, although I have heard that it can be harder to attach them to light stands (as opposed to C-Stands). Someone said elsewhere that I should be able to attach...
  28. Re: Paterson Orbital - lost base, what can I do?

    Thank you! I'll try to post on here once I'm up and running, although I'll only be shooting black and white due to costs.
  29. Re: Paterson Orbital - lost base, what can I do?

    As mentioned yesterday, here are those eyes that I use to keep up the negative. They seem to be fixed down solidly, and I have run about 20 prints through this Orbital so far.215705
  30. Re: Paterson Orbital - lost base, what can I do?

    (Also, thanks for your help on this)
  31. Re: Paterson Orbital - lost base, what can I do?

    Yes, I've removed fins. I've also added some joke shop sticky "eyes" to the bottom to raise the negative. I would show a picture, but my wife is using my phone as an alarm at the moment, but maybe...
  32. Re: Paterson Orbital - lost base, what can I do?

    Ah okay, sounds like a water bath could be useful. One thing though - I am concerned that water could enter the tank at the edges. Or does it float quite high? (Probably a stupid question)
  33. Re: Paterson Orbital - lost base, what can I do?

    Hmmm, just found this: http://freepdfhosting.com/f640343f29.pdf

    Looks like I may be in luck. However, I'm still interested to hear if any of you are using this semi-stand method...
  34. Paterson Orbital - lost base, what can I do?

    Hi, in my moving around all over the place, I've realised that I have lost my Paterson Orbital manual base. This is frustrating me, as I don't particularly want to dump another 100 for another...
  35. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Ah okay. That's good to know then.
  36. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    I think I would just be too worried that the strobe would fall if it did break. I only have a limited amount of money to get set up, and I don't think I would be able to get the strobe as cheap as I...
  37. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    How can you tell if it has a full-size baby stud?

    Also, why do you not like air cushioned?

    A new stand that I am considering is the Manfrotto 126BSU...
  38. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    As with Avenger, there are limited suppliers of Matthews equipment in Switzerland it seems. I can find a couple of C-Stands, but no rollers
  39. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    Ideally, this is what I'd like to do as well.
  40. Re: Always go for the light stand with the heaviest weight rating?

    I would be sticking to studio in the main, so I don't mind about weight or bulk. Although, like I mentioned in another comment, the Avenger Roller 36 that I originally linked to seems to be quite...
