    Re: Linhof Technika III 5x7 restoration

    Thanks for posting this. I, too, have 5x7 Tech III. A few years ago, I stripped the old, peeling leatherette off it that a previous owner had put on it, with the intention of recovering it in new...

    Re: Old Cars, Trucks and Motorcycles

    It’s a great shot, John. These big prints you speak of — are they darkroom prints or digital?

    I tried to order Kodak Stop Bath last year, and they wouldn’t ship it. But they would ship me Ilford stop bath.
