    It will fit if it is 20.3 cm x 25.4 cm. You may have to buy larger nd cut down.
  11. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    I usually use trays. Inspection is by reflection off the reverse side looking primarily for good density in the highlights . The shadows are extremely difficult to see, especially in my 90's.

  18. Re: Platinotype: Making Photographs in Platinum and Palladium

    Ziatype works beautifully. The print color varies slightly from a Pt or Pd print, but is appropriate for many of my images. The main difficulty is the humidity of the paper must be tightly controlled.

    Re: eTone focusing cloths - opinions?

    The major problem is that it doesn't cover the bellows. This may not be a problem with a new camera,but one which has been owned and used for 25-75 years, or more, may well need this help.

    I don't believe a #0 is long enough to do what you wish. It is only one meter If you decide it is for you, let me know via PM, I may have one and if so it would not cost you very much.
