  1. Poll: Re: What's your #1 anxiety about LF (in your personal life)?

    It's not anxiety, but concern. As I approach 92 years in the next month, I find it harder to carry the equipment and get it on a tripod. I also don't have the energy to make more than 3 or 4...

    Re: Cibachrome printing

    That's an ingenious solution to low cost camera/development. Thanks for sharing.
  3. Re: XTOL not mixing well and not working any more!

    Simple answer to these problems - Don't be a martyr- change chemistry. There are too many good ones available to waste time, money and film on questionable ones.

    Re: Trying out Chromium intensifier

    When I was young chromium intensifier was common. As soon as I knew enough about chemistry to realize it's dangers, I stopped using it. There are other safer methods which also do not amplify grain.

    Re: Kodak Kodabromide G2 VS F2

    Both are fiber papers. F-2 is Glossy and G-2 is textured (I don't remember the correct term).
    I used F-2 for 20+ years, and only went to G-2 after my college years. When I worked in a store in high...

    Re: ULF film flatness idea

    Other than the times i have aimed my 8x10 almost straight down, I have never had a problem with 8x10, 5x12 or 7x17. Why? I don't know, probably just dumb luck.

    Re: Preferences for 150-165mm lenses in 8x10?

    I assume you need cataract surgery. If you have a good surgeon, it's a piece of cake. I had both of mine done several years ago.
    If anything else, I would get a 2nd opinion.
