    There was a carbon process similar to gum, where the...

    The trick (and I think it is in the instructions, too), is to leave an inch or so of film above the lip of the chamber until one is done loading -- then shove them all down before putting on the...

    Re: Moon lit scene with Txp 320

    I have posted these before -- These figures are from Michael Kenna -- from a workshop 40? years ago.

    An interesting way to approach 4x5 and thru-hiking would be a one-photo-a-day scheme. Four holders a week, with one 'extra'. A photo taken at every lunch stop, for example. Most of my backpacking...

    Fortunately the sponges are not essential to the operation of the drums! But we are also warned about hitting the bottom of the tubes with the sponge and break the seal in the drum.
