    Re: Problems with sharpness

    This is important. First make sure it is the negative itself that is unsharp.

    Re: Sunny !6 Users Unite!

    Well, it really isn’t that complicated, although yes I suppose you’d need a spot meter. Meter the cat and you’re done. The film will handle the rest.

  6. Re: Does a new luxury 8x10 camera make sense in 2021?

    Perhaps. I don't actually know much at all about Phillips cameras - except that Drew has one, so I was kind of trolling him a bit on that one. Busted! :D
  7. Re: Does a new luxury 8x10 camera make sense in 2021?

    It’s not quite as outrageous as it seems at first. After all, the top line Linhofs are over 10k now (although they are excellent, and we don’t know if this 20k thing is any good). An 8x10 Ebony would...

    If I remember correctly “CB” said he was done when his Ciba stock fails. It has already shifted enough that there are certain images he will no longer print.

    Did he even use Velvia? I’d be...

    If you buy a 110 XL make sure you get one without haze or whatever. Mine is very late production (which may or may not matter although I haven’t had any issues) but some people had problems with the...

    Not sure there is a hard and fast answer. It will likely depend on how you go about each of these processes as there are quite a few variables involved either way.
