    Re: Help me choose a camera to hike 2000+ miles

    Makes sense -- I have a little Sony RX100 that seems to eat batteries -- but it is so small that the batteries are also very small. I spent a month camping in southern Chile and my son with a...
  4. Re: How much detail is lost enlarging a 4x5 negative to 8X10

    I was thinking more along the lines of loss of detail in shadows and/or highlights due to changing the curve of the enlarged film for use in alt. processes (for example: increasing contrast of the...

    Re: Help me choose a camera to hike 2000+ miles

    An interesting way to approach 4x5 and thru-hiking would be a one-photo-a-day scheme. Four holders a week, with one 'extra'. A photo taken at every lunch stop, for example. Most of my backpacking...

    Re: Question about JOBO expert drums

    Fortunately the sponges are not essential to the operation of the drums! But we are also warned about hitting the bottom of the tubes with the sponge and break the seal in the drum.

    Jobo directions say not to exceed 122F -- if it is too hot on your hand, it is too hot for the drum.

    I tend to make my 'panos' with a normal focal length, with occasional wide and long. I do not think panos need to be made with wide lenses...YMMD.
