    Re: How do you set up your tripod?

    Having used a TLR for many years as well as LF, I've grown accustomed to seeing at around waist height as well as at my normal 6'4" eye-level perspective.
    Sadly, at 61 yrs of joint wear and body...

    Re: Dealing with dust

    I have a variety of 5x7 holders and I've found the older wooden ones to be static-free, which is logical I suppose.

    Re: Hole Saw For Commercial Ektar Lens

    I've used laser vision but I get best results through sheer force of will.
  4. Re: Chamonix and Ebony's are gorgeous & Old Kodak 2D's are UGLY but they have their p

    My late teacher's daughter bequeathed me HIS late teacher's 5x7 2D a few months back, along with 3 lenses including a 36cm Nicola Perscheid.
    It meets two important requirements; it holds a lens in...

    Re: Changing bags and dust

    Highly recommend NOT using Gorilla™ brand black tape. The adhesive would guaranteed peel off paint, and probably the door frame itself!

    Re: I don't understand Rodinol...

    Seems to me the only potential effect on VC paper would be if the color was a variation of magenta.

    Bingo. What combination of ND filters gives you approx 30secs?

    Re: Contact printing light source?

    Oh so true. I'm walling off a small corner of an oddly sized room in my house, 3 trays in a metal slop sink and wash them in the bathroom or kitchen.

    Re: Contact printing light source?

    Thanks, all. An old 35mm enlarger is a possibility but space is a consideration. I've been thinking more along the lines of boxing in a low wattage bulb or LED or (..?) with a slot for 6x6 VC...

    Re: Contact printing light source?

    Primarily VC (especially while getting back up to speed, it's been awhile), graded on occasion. Planning on using 6"x 6" multigrade filters under a boxed-in light source.

    Contact printing light source?

    I've lost access to, and room for, an enlarger to use as light source to contact print 5x7. More than willing to use Weston's 15w bare bulb but I figure there might be additional options after 70-80...

    ALWAYS straight in!
  14. Re: Harman Direct Positive Paper Question

    Yes, you'd get a negative.

    I'm only in the last few weeks converting from 4x5 to 5x7, expressly for contact printing DPP, as I have no way of setting up a full darkroom with enlarger.

    I've...

    Nice!
    I think this site really needs a "LIKE" button.
  16. Re: Bausch & Lomb EF Anistigmat 3" f2 question

    That object that came around in the future right now is a Nicola Perscheid 36cm that is kindling Pictorialist sensibilities in my brain... where at 61 yrs there's only room for so much...
  17. Re: Bausch & Lomb EF Anistigmat 3" f2 question

    I am going test it out to see what it looks like but it won't be a keeper; I've bumped up from 4x5 to 5x7 and I'm not looking back...
  18. Re: Bausch & Lomb EF Anistigmat 3" f2 question

    So... not for an old f64-school guy?
    Guess I'll hook up the man bun, brew up some Ethiopian coffee and find some digital sites to flog this puppy.
  19. Bausch & Lomb EF Anistigmat 3" f2 question

    Took in 3- 5x7 lenses for CLA at my local (hour away) repair guy awhile back, he gave me a tote with 5 or 6 odd/old lenses, elements and shutters that I was digging around in today.
