    Re: contact printing ??

    LOL! My wife gets a big kick out of me wearing sunglasses in the darkroom when I contact print. That's a really friggin BRIGHT light! :)
  2. Re: Getting back into 8x10, would a cheap Intrepid Satisfy?

    IMO, questionable on the MK1, but probably doable on the MKII or MKIII. Hopefully, an Intrepid 8x10 user with similar weight/size lens will chime in.

    Re: contact printing ??

    They were probably using a contact printing paper like Adox Lupex. I use a 300-watt flood about 6 feet above my enlarger table and get ~30 sec exposures with Lupex and my 8x10 negs.
  4. Re: Getting back into 8x10, would a cheap Intrepid Satisfy?

    I have a MK1 lying around not being used. If interested, PM me and I'll come up with a price.

    Re: contact printing ??

    Yes. Paper emulsion up, negative emulsion side down. Some photographers have the printing light mounted in/under a table and flip the printing frame over, but the "sandwich" in the frame is the same.

    Re: contact printing ??

    If you go the Adox Lupex route, then you'll have to go the other direction with your bulb. Lupex is a VERY slow paper, as are similar papers such as Azo and Lodima.
  7. Re: Getting back into 8x10, would a cheap Intrepid Satisfy?

    For me, using an 8x10 is a desire not a need. As a matter of fact, it's my favorite format! For 40 years now, I've never tired of shooting this format or the resulting contact prints that can be made...
  8. Re: after you remove the wet neg from scanner, what's your drying method?

    Yep, you don't want mounting fluid to get under the bed glass and/or into the internals of the scanner. I carefully tape around the edges of the glass and long ago I figured out exactly how much...
  9. Re: Getting back into 8x10, would a cheap Intrepid Satisfy?

    Very true, but at 70 years young the Intrepid 8x10 along with Fuji A and C lenses plus carbon fiber tripod enable me to trek this outfit to places I couldn't dream of going with my Deardorff gear....
  10. Re: Getting back into 8x10, would a cheap Intrepid Satisfy?

    Exactly! I've always held the opinion that the Intrepid has its place, but I don't consider it a beginner 8x10 camera. I use Fuji A and C lenses on mine. The only "failure" I ever had was with the...
  11. Re: after you remove the wet neg from scanner, what's your drying method?

    Same here, especially with 8x10 film.
  12. Re: after you remove the wet neg from scanner, what's your drying method?

    I use Kami fluid and following a scan I carefully lift the film by a corner and wave gently in the air to evaporate excess fluid as quickly as possible. But, as others have said Kami can leave a bit...
  13. Re: Getting back into 8x10, would a cheap Intrepid Satisfy?

    I have both a Deardorff V8 and Intrepid V2 8x10's. The Deardorff is too heavy to backpack very far, but is wonderfully solid and a joy to use. The Intrepid can be carried anywhere I want to take it,...

    Maybe now that they will have a more rigid 8x10 chassis, they'll develop the 8x10 enlarger piece I've heard rumored about for a while now?

  19. Re: Help with filter choice for black and white film, please

    As you probably already know, a color filter lightens those hues similar to its color and darkens color on the opposite side of the color wheel. So, yes, a green filter would darken the red text....

    Re: Kodak Fixer vs Kodafix

    I haven't used Kodafix for many years, but back when I did the cost of it was always reasonable. If you make fiber prints, I suggest mixing the film strength and using that for both.
