    Re: Kearsarge timer stuck on focus mode

    It really is a wonderful timer! Worth the effort and a couple finger burns (always seems to happen when I use the soldering iron). Saw that there was one of these on ebay for about $190. Not sure...

    Update: FIXED It!

    So proud and happy to be able to report that news... only took about a month. I suspected that it was the main relay, and testing it with external 12 volts power seemed to...

  4. Re: Article on digitalizing film with a digital camera, including color negatives

    This is a really interesting topic for me for a couple reasons. The scanner I have, (Epson 4490) will not scan a 4x5. Even if it did, the scans I've done with medium format have only been mediocre at...

    Hi everyone,

    Some previous threads here discuss some anomalies with Kearsarge timers, and I have a model 301 that seems to be stuck in focus mode. Another user had a similar problem that was...

    Re: Developing tank advice

    another high recommendation for the Stearman Press SP-445 from me. Only one caveat, when I received mine from BH it was missing the two film holders. Should have sent back but Tim sent me replacement...

    Re: nice new lens, but sticky shutter

    Thanks, I think I watched that video too! Actually, it was enough to scare me away from attempting a diy clean and lube. You're also right, cool not much of a problem right now. Though, some of...

    nice new lens, but sticky shutter

    Hi everyone!

    I received a nice new (used) Nikkor 75mm this morning, and in testing things out found that the shutter was sticking below 1/8 second. So, I promptly initiated a return on Ebay.

  12. Re: new member intro, and, lens purchase dilemna...

    That one looks just a little rough. I am considering a 6.8 lens though... the one I sent back was in really nice condition. The price wouldn't have been good though for that lens. My thought is to...

    Just checked, they offered full refund and to pay return shipping (sigh of relief,...
  16. Re: new member intro, and, lens purchase dilemna...

    I guess i was first surprised that it fit in the mailbox, and second that the box was so light (from what I've read the 4.5 is a Big lens).

    Any thoughts on whether I should keep it and what...
