    Re: 8x10 Camera Musing

    It's too expensive a camera for me too, but for small volume well designed craftsmanship, it's within the realm of reasonable and that's why I don't buy new... Sorta like a new Goldwing will be more...

    Re: Headache from Fixer Fumes?

    Re: Compare Wet Plate to Best LF Film

    New chips are in the range of 7nm (0.007 uM), so that's substantially finer than the really nice data in this thread.

    Re: Compare Wet Plate to Best LF Film

    Some of the big scans on Shorpy from 19th century appear grainless. I have not personally run into much grain scanning an ambrotype or tmax 400 with the Epson scanner but I'm not scientific about it.
