    It's "Learn or burn." in this life.
  2. Re: What am I doing wrong?! Mounting Copal 3

    You don't have the spacer ring, what you have is two jam nuts. You can buy the spacer rings from eBay. When you get one, it goes between the lens and the board and the deep jam nut with the narrow...

    Re: Push 400 to 800 in HC110

    If you are happy with your 320 negatives in HC11B try the same time but use a dilution of 1.25 to 30.75 instead of 1:31. You really need to run your own tests. I have posted on this subject before....

    Thank you for all the information!
  6. Please suggest a good in stamp for collector FB prints.

    I would like to stamp the back of prints I sell and fill in details in pencil and be confident that the stamp will cause no damage in the future. Anyone have a suggestion?
  7. Re: Lens Advice / Opinion: Consistent Look (or thatís not real)

    Re: How to obtain a Dynatect bellows.

    Peter,
    Since Dynatect in New Berlin WI is within driving distance of you, perhaps a personal visit to their facility would be in order and then you could report your findings here on the forum.

  16. Re: question about strobe heads for norman power packs

    With the P2000 and P4000 manual flash packs you have to change power levels only when the ready light is on. That way, all caps are charged and won't be discharging against one another.
  17. Re: question about strobe heads for norman power packs

    The Norman P2000D and likely the 800 both take Series 900 Norman heads, unless the 800 is a 450Series.
