    Well, I certainly agree there isn't necessarily a right or wrong when it comes to aesthetic/creative choices. Someone tells you anything like that you know right away what kind of yutz you're dealing...

    “All photographs are illusions”. (John Sexton)

    And what is clinical supposed to mean? First it was tabular emulsions that were clinical. Then digital. Sharp lenses. Please.
  4. Re: The Problem with Modern Lenses.. transfered to those new to view camera image mak

    Perhaps you’re not looking in the right places. Charles Cramer was mentioned earlier in this thread. He transitioned to digital. Superb work. Doesn’t look digital or analog, just looks terrific.

    I’ve not personally owned a VX125 so it is second hand info, but from a highly experienced/reputable photographer I reached out to for opinion when I was looking into changing cameras. He had to have...

    Re: Cameras with geared swing movement

    Yup. I went through a phase when I was obsessed with alignment and accurately zeroed detents. But first you have to be sure you are truly zeroed when in the detents (not the case with most cameras,...

    Re: two solution D-23 question

    I agree, Paul. Depending on the volumes of stock solutions you begin with, from a practical perspective you can definitely re-use to varying degrees before you actually notice any difference.

    Re: two solution D-23 question

    If you want the most consistency, both solutions should be used one-shot (ie don’t pour A or B back into the stock solution bottles after use).

    New edition of the book recently released. Content is identical but the quality of the print reproductions has apparently been brought up to date (they went back to the original prints to redo this)....

    Re: Newton's Rings

    The emulsion side of Delta 100 shouldn’t normally form Newton rings. The TMax films and to some degree Fuji Acros can be quite problematic on the emulsion side. Certain types of optically coated...

  20. Re: Headless LF Enlargers Rise UP!.....................LED

    I think the point is simply that it can be done if required or desired. If you’ve already got properly functioning incandescent heads there’s no need for make-work projects unless you are so inclined.

    There are simple formulas we can use to find EVs for luminance or illuminance values. Once you have an EV you can decide on your exposure settings (aperture, shutter speed). We just need to know a...

    Re: Foot candle to aperture and ISO.

    -F stops have to do with lens aperture
    -ISO values are standard measures of emulsion speed

  28. Re: Headless LF Enlargers Rise UP!.....................LED

    I’ve often imagined the same - a “perfect”, simple device with nothing to go out of alignment ever. It’s fun to dream things up.

    Diffusion is just for uniformity of any light (and depending on how you construct the box you might not even need supplemental diffusion). You don’t need to mix the blue and green as long as they...
  33. Re: Potentially useful LEDs for darkroom/alt applications

    Quite right. You're not going to get a magical grade 5+ using shorter wavelength LEDs. The issue with the longer blue wavelengths isn't a matter of peak but simply that the emission band extends too...
  34. Re: Potentially useful LEDs for darkroom/alt applications

    Ideally blue LEDs for this would be a little lower than 450-460 since most of them emit a little beyond what you want for “maximum” contrast - although honestly how often does one really need grade...
  35. Re: Potentially useful LEDs for darkroom/alt applications

    There are different ways of arranging the LEDs in an enlarger head, which affects the amount of light you have at the negative stage. Also...

  40. Re: Potentially useful LEDs for darkroom/alt applications

    I’d rather have a high CRI/smoother spectrum for sensitometry. Low flicker is necessary.

    For enlarging/printing, the higher the “complete” CRI, the closer the approximation will be to whatever...
