    Re: Favorite Current 8x10 B&W Film?

    Consider TMAX400 (TMY) if you intend to do any alt-process printing that requires UV exposure. Because it has no UV-blocking your print exposures will be much shorter than with other films. Yes,...
  2. Re: Fitting Graphic-Kowa 210mm F9 in Copal 1

    Not all 210mm f/9 Graphic Kowa cells will fit a Copal 1. I have a recollection that some versions don't allow removal of one of the cells (rear, I think, but I'm not sure). And I could be wrong. ...

  9. Re: Pens for marking or numbering film negatives - HABS & HAER guidance 2020.

  13. Re: Any telephoto (360mm or above) recommendations for a 4x5 (TK45S)?

    I have a 400mm f/8 Osaka (same as Congo, just a store brand for Bromwell Camera). Optically it is slightly worse than a 400mm Fujinon-T when viewing 11x14 enlargements with a loupe, but it's also...

  16. Re: Nagaoka cameras are still made in Japan. The story of a wooden LF craftsman.

    Isopropanol (a.k.a. isopropyl alcohol) dissolves some inks including Sharpie and won't hurt the plastic. I'd try it before resorting to acetone or nail polish remover.
