    Re: Red & Black darkslides

    I'd say it is a new customization - I've not seen that in - oh - like 40 years. Certainly would not work if they were just spray painted though - would have to have been done in the manufacturing to...

    Re: Is it worth buying 8x10 to cut to 4x5?

    Except for uncommon film, nope. You have more emulsion choices, in abundance in 4x5 versus 8x10. And there's the issue of losing notch codes when you cut down 8x10...

    I find it hard to believe that Keith Canham would have made or sold these 4x10 film holders - they're not really "Canham" film holders are they?

    If my 3880 had a reddish-brown tint on monochrome prints I would have thrown it out years ago. So I'm not sure your 4880 is operating correctly.

    The Heliar and Ektar are quite different from each other - are you going for vintage sharpness or vintage softness? Also worth considering are the Verito/Veritar and Kodak Portrait lenses.

  26. Re: Opinion: Would a 90mm f8 or f6.8 lens be too dark for dawn and dusk landscape?

    Create your own infinity stops and shoot at f/16. All you need is a flashlight to set your focus at the infinity stop (or other preset hyperfocal distance) and set the f stop and you're done.

    Quadruple checking while loading is my approach. First double check is when I think the film is under both side rails, but before sliding the sheet the rest of the way in, I try to lift the film at...
