    I wonder how difficult it would be to graft 2 8x10 hangers together ? guessing the stainless would be the problem.

    Re: B&H unable to ship PQ Universal (again)

    Interesting. I ordered Formulary 130 recently and had no problems getting that. Same with TF-5. Think Rodinal was a no go however.

    Re: Polaroid 20x24 Cameras and standard films?

    since we're talking about 8x10, my go to for most photographs is a 300 5.6. I've used a 210 Fuji (inside lettering) for full and waist up portraits when I wanted more breathing room in the photo.

    Re: Polaroid 8x10 processor repair

    if you're lucky, your processor will have a hole in the side where you can use a manual winder. hope it's just dirty rollers, but that cld still mean the motor is toasted as stuck rollers cld burn it...

    Re: (possibly) taking the large jump

    I'd suggest looking into 5x7 (am presuming you're shooting 4x5) and making contacts. I find 4x5 too small for contacts(ymmv) but 5x7 (and 8x10 for that matter) is almost a sweet spot.

    Re: Film changing bag or changing tent?

    bags are smaller and fold up small. tents are larger but have much needed interior room/volume. a must imo for loading holders.
  14. Re: Contact Printing Large Format negatives with a Leica Focomat V35?

    if everything works properly, $200 is an absolute steal. make sure the lens aperture ring is smooth and not sticky as that could mean you could nudge the af off a bit. it had three modules, a b/w...
  15. Re: Contact Printing Large Format negatives with a Leica Fotomat V35?

    I have the same enlarger as well and it's not a problem I've encountered. The light will be even across the frame so I don't why you need to worry about vignetting. You're not enlarging the LF...

    Unless I'm missing something, I can't see how a 30mm min bellows is useful for 8x10. even with a 4x5 reducing back, I can't see how it works.
