  1. Re: Stearman Press 810 & Temperature Film Reticulation

    Reticulation looks like cracks, think dried mudbed, not likes stretches. And reticulation is really quite difficult to induce with modern films. I've done 15'C temp shifts and not been able to get it...

    There is no problem with blue, I was just curious.

    As for what is the goal of obtaining a negative, so that I can make an enlargement. The final print is the goal to me, the negative is the road...
  7. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    The problem I see with doing reversal is that the film base is not clear, its blue. So if the goal is to show the positive as the final image, it's not a B&W picture, but a mostly blue picture.

    I did this with a Chamonix and a fuji 135mm. It's slightly larger than 1:1, probably closer to 2:1

  11. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    I don't have a sp-445, but from what I gather, the film touches the holder on one side, or at least comes extremely close to doing so, correct? This spells disaster. I use a jobo tank that holds 6...

    Re: How to get into ULF?

  13. Re: Question about flash photography with a Chamonix

    Do the flash/triggers have a PC sync? Are your lenses mounted in modern shutters with a PC sync? If so, then yes. It will work just fine.
  14. Re: Light leaks and possible film processing problems

    To me this doesn't look like a problem of having the film reversed. That tends to show up as overly orange shots. Could be developing related. You mention B's reel. What is that? Don't give up yet.
  15. Re: Has anyone here done three-color photography on B/W with a Speed Graphic or simil

    Not sure what your problem is, but it seems that you want to discourage or make this as complicated as possible. Isn't photography supposed to be fun? Anyway, I know that my tri-colors are not...

    Haha that is exactly the film I used for my 4x5 shots. It worked just fine.
  17. Re: Has anyone here done three-color photography on B/W with a Speed Graphic or simil

    Maybe I got lucky, but the wine bottle and flower shot were my FIRST attempt at this process. It's really not that difficult if you already have film photography down.
  18. Re: Has anyone here done three-color photography on B/W with a Speed Graphic or simil

    Here's my try at this. The pencils and hammer were 4x5 and the bottle and flowers were 35mm. Both using the same RGB filters. Just some cheap square ebay color filters with no markings or color...
  19. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Using that holder in the tray is not going to help you at all with scratching. The film will sag and still touch the bottom of the tray and it just adds extra steps (loading and unloading the holder)...

    In China, xray by traditional xray film is still king. Even at the "high end" western hospitals here in Beijing. I don't see it going away any time soon.

    Turns out that yes. Many many people have this problem regardless of if they have 16 or 64 gb of ram. It's software, not your hardware that is the problem.

    Technically you can, but you will be getting into funky sized ears and noses if you are going for a tight portrait. You could try to get a tophat lensboard for your 300. That could give you some...
  30. Re: Computer hardware when editing large format files (100MP+)

    I highly disagree, for photo editing, 16 gb is more than enough. Recommending 64 as a minimum is absurd.

    I very much agree with this. In my case, the local labs charge $10 per sheet to develop and scan. It doesn't take long to exceed the cost of a decent scanner, 3 boxes of film and you are already more...
  33. Re: Thinking hard about taking the LF plunge.....

    If I sent my stuff out for processing, I'd be broke long before I learned anything. Developing is dead easy and you can shoot 5 times as much for the same costs. You'll learn much quicker.

    Re: 4x10 Point 'n Shoot Camera Build

    My guess would be that shutters were an afterthought. Image circle is likely calculated for the bare lens only, not accounting for a shutter.

    Fantastic camera by the way.
