  2. Re: Darkroom Demo Livestream + Print Giveaway - 9/4/20

    I got on late so I missed the actual print making. [emoji848] I'll check out the recording if you don't mind posting that link.

    Was that a Chroma camera that you sometimes hand hold?

    Thanks...

    Re: Tripod for Calumet CC-400

    As I understand it, some only had the two legs. That's how mine is. That's why I went for the extension legs.

    I've got the same, bought via CL from a guy using it for video. Solid. I bought extension legs for it, but they're either the wrong ones or I need a locking collet(?) or some such to keep the...

    Re: Sinar Norma CLA, Europe?
