  1. Re: Newb question: Store film holders with dark slides in...or out?

    My personal opinion would be to keep all of my 4x5" dark slides in place. This is because I own over 100 of them which I have accumulated over many years. If I had to figure out which slides went...

    How are you going to focus? It would seem to me that you would need a longer piece that has a setting for fully open which would allow one to focus.

    Just a wild idea, but what about using one of those products made to be used on automobile dashboards such as Armor All? Would it help to "rejuvenate" plastic materials that have gone sticky?

    Thanks, but most likey there would be no interest because I am not a "process artist", I just get the job done... quietly and with no crew.

    Another way to block light and trap excess light might be to glue black flock paper or felt to the back of the lens board.
