  4. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    I love my f4.5 Ektar. Its beautiful even wide open.
  5. Re: Suggest a 12" (300mm) lens for portrait work on 8x10?

    I have the 12 f4.5 Ektar and I love it. It can be exquisitely soft if I want it to be, or sharp as a knife (but never harsh contrast).

    Re: Bergger Film Developer?

    This mirrors my experience as well: Rodinal gave very poor results, with ugly, clumpy grain, poor tonality and very poor shadow detail. ANY other developer is better.

    Re: Bergger Film Developer?

    At Blue Moon Camera, I can buy Pancro400 for $125 a box (8x10) whereas HP5+ is $170 for a box. So yes, that's exactly what was being expressed: the Bergger product is $45 cheaper than the equivalent...

    There isn't a B&W emulsion out there that actually gives optimal results at "box speed", so Bergger is no different from the rest. I've never exposed any B&W film at the stated box speed and gotten...

    Re: Bergger Film Developer?

    I assume you're talking about Pancro400.
    This is not an easy film to work with, but when you get it right, it produces beautiful results. For starters, its NOT a true 400 ASA film. Expect to have to...
  19. Re: New to this and saw this in my first lens?

    The rainbow colors seen in your photo are NOT evidence of separation of lens elements, it is simply how the coatings appear in certain lighting. There is absolutely nothing wrong with your lens.

  21. Re: Lane Dry Plates: What is a practical ISO rating?

  22. Re: Dry Plates (handmade) - Tips & Tricks, Experiences & Examples . . .

    It helps that I have a lot of experience making wet plate glass negatives. Just clean your glass really well and you’ll be fine.

  24. Re: Dry Plates (handmade) - Tips & Tricks, Experiences & Examples . . .

    Portriga Rapid was king of graded papers, in my opinion. Fomatone Classic comes very close to emulating the Portriga look.

    Re: Storage of Exposed/developed glass plates?

    I've found that in the winter months and under cloudy/low light conditions, the 2ASA plates are more like 0.5 ASA or less. To get a good result I have often given 3X what the meter told me.

    Re: Suggestion for tintype starter kit

    Thats good to know. Its not stated on their web site. Getting the Old Workhorse as a 2 part Collodion is definitely an asset, since it won't be excessively aged by the time the buyer receives it.
  30. Re: the thread for Kodak XTOL quality control issues
