  1. Re: Ektachrome E100G and new E100 the same film?

    They definitely seem like they have a different color pallete in my experience. I really enjoy the new E100, but I love the old E100G too. I can shoot E100 unfiltered in more situations than...

    Do we need the mylar?

    I camera scan on a copy stand and I'm interested in doing more wet scanning. I'm just curious about something. Typically you use mylar so that the film can be held flat and moved around, put in a...

    Re: Relevance of zone system when scanning

    I would just take the film speed evaluation and metering techniques and then start shooting. That's largely what I've done and I'm darkroom printing too.

    Adox CHS100II Yay or Nay?

    I could buy a box of 25 sheets of 5x7 CHS100II for about $99.95 from Freestyle Or I could get a box of same quantity FP4+ for $69.95.

    Any reason to pick Adox? An orthopanchromatic stock...

    Re: Paths to Super Clean Sheet Film?

    So far I'm using filtered but not distilled water for the final rinse. The film is being tried in a film drying cabinet.

    Paths to Super Clean Sheet Film?

    I'm doing some high resolution scanning of 4x5 and 8x10 film. At times it's almost like using a point source enlarger when it comes to showing micro scuffs and dust. However there are other...

  9. Enlarging 4x5 with Film Edges in LPL 4550XL?

    I'd like to enlarge 4x5 with the full frame edges, sadly even the glass 4x5 carrier doesn't allow this. I think my Heiland LED will though, and I'm guessing a 150mm enlarging lens will cover...

    So I received my 5x7N and finally had a chance to set it up tonight.

    Re: How do you like your Chamonix 57Fs-2 ?

    Even in the photos visible on the Chamonix site you can see the mechanism for removing the back. I'm assuming that the 4x5 back for it is the rotating type that spins the graflok or whatever type of...

  16. Re: Drum Scan vs DSLR vs Epson Scan (From Nick Carver's Youtube Channel)

    I saw that! Very cool stuff. However medium format will still have disadvantages vs 35mm full frame. The native macros tend to go to 1:2, and DoF is much less. You could solve this with an...

    Just looking at the B&H site, there aren't a lot of legs for big cameras anymore outside of video. It's kind of wild. I remember in 2005 or so buying some really heavy but rock solid Manfrotto...

  23. Re: Drum Scan vs DSLR vs Epson Scan (From Nick Carver's Youtube Channel)
