  1. Re: Kodak Kodalith MP ortho film 2557, know anything?

    I don't think thats the issue, if I remember correctly, the fog can be seen on the negative in just the red light, which the film is not sensitive to. Fixing for longer is worth a shot though I...
  2. Re: Kodak Kodalith MP ortho film 2557, know anything?

    So, the plot thickens. I did some more experimenting with this film today, and though I'm closer to figuring it out, some aspects still illude me. The first negative I developed came out great,...
  3. Re: Scanner, enlarger, or contact printer? Which one and why???

    A scanner is the simplest these days, and will also allow you to post photos on the internet. However, I find there is something awe inspiring about creating silver gelatin prints and watching them...

    Re: Thinking hard about taking the LF plunge.....

    I'm somewhat new to large format, only been doing it a bit over a year now, but for me a huge part of the enjoyment I get from the process is working in the darkroom processing film and prints....
  5. Re: kodak ortho film, know anything?

    Do you have any experience processing it without the Kodalith developer? I don't have any lith developers at the moment, but may try some to see if that yields better results than the standard...
  6. Re: kodak ortho film, know anything?

    Tri-X ortho? I wonder how that compares to Tri-X normal, I'd guess the emulsion is very different
  7. Re: kodak ortho film, know anything?

    Interesting, briefly reading that indicates that dichroic fog is caused by spent chemicals. I had mixed the fixer that session, but I suppose it may have been exhausted by the time I got to those...
  8. Kodak Kodalith MP ortho film 2557, know anything?

    Hey everyone,

    I was in a local used camera store today, and happened across two boxes of 8x10 Kodak Kodalith MP ortho film 2557. The owner of the store had no clue what to do with it, and since it...
  9. Re: First Forey Into 8x10 Format/ Intrepid 8x10 Camera

    Have you made sure the bellows are in good condition? I bought my first 8x10 earlier this year, and found while searching that the bellows can often have issues even if they donít appear to at first....
  10. Re: First Forey Into 8x10 Format/ Intrepid 8x10 Camera

    My thinking is that because the lens plane weighs less, by focusing with it I donít off balance the camera as much. That said, Iíve never had issues with the camera wobbling or anything when focusing...

    Lovely view! The contrast between the jaged cliffs and soft water is especially nice. It’s also timeless which I like, someone could tell me it was taken in the early 20th century and I might believe...

    Re: The Setup and the Shot

    A few weeks ago, before all this white stuff fell out of the sky, I decided to take my 8x10 kit on a hike up Mt. Greylock. While hiking it was great, but the next day my shoulders and back had some...

    Re: The Setup and the Shot

    very nice! I especially like how you got your subject at the very edge of your in-focus area, so as soon as one looks past her it all falls off.

  17. Re: Any darkrooms in New England with 8x10 Enlargers?

  19. Any darkrooms in New England with 8x10 Enlargers?

    Hey everyone,

    I've had a lot of fun shooting with my 8x10 camera in the past few months, but my lack of access to an 8x10 enlarger has limited me to contact prints. Do any of you know of darkrooms...

    Re: Show Me Your Night Shots!

    The film is TRI-X 320, Exposure was f/32 at 1/10sec I believe (I rarely write that down), and it was developed in standard sprint systems chemistry. I’ve been wanting to do some experimentation with...

  26. Re: Know anything about this J.H. Dallmeyer Lens?

    Are there many counterfeits out there? I’m doubtful that this is one, both because of where I got it from, and from it’s condition, but do counterfeits of lenses from this era exist?

  28. Re: Know anything about this J.H. Dallmeyer Lens?

    Very interesting, if it was a display lens used to showcase the “new” iris aperture, does anyone know around what year that would place it? I read that Rapid Rectilinear lenses were made from 1866 to...
