    Re: 210mm lens for 8x10?

    My dagor type G-Claron 210mm is great and at f45 allows for a good 1.5Ē of rise (landscape) before I start to worry about corners. Great lens, tiny and cheap!

    Re: Adox CHS100II Yay or Nay?

    Yes, because it lacks the extra anti-halation layer that the roll film has and that causes the problems.

    Sheets are fine with Pyro, but not roll film. I’ve heard of people using it with PMK and Pyrocat, but never read a consensus re results or recommended times etc. it’s an attractive film to me but...
