    Re: BTZS Tubes in daylight

    I've only ever used the 8x10 tubes and, like others, I've always moved to stop and fix in dim light without any issues. In the fix, I'll roll the tube back-n-forth for about a minute, then removing...
  4. Re: Film and winter temperature swings going on location

    When working LF in the cold, I always considered anything down to zero as simply cold and below zero as extreme cold; especially if any wind is blowing! I once made a landscape image where the...
  5. Re: Film and winter temperature swings going on location

    As domaz said, condensation and slowing shutters are probably your biggest concerns. I haven't worked in extreme cold for over 20 years, but back when I did I kept everything in the trunk of my car...

    I finished my last couple of boxes a few years ago. Had a few sheets where I was missing image area due to inconsistent chemical spread, but I didn't care! Type 55 was a truly spectacular film...

    Re: Moving to Ilford from Kodak, begrudgingly…

    I, too, have been a long time user of Kodak films--Tri-X, in my case. I've shot Tri-X in all formats from 120 roll to 8x10 since the late '70's. I'm now down to my last 200 sheets of 4x5 and, maybe,...

    Re: 510 Pyro 1 Hour Stand

    FWIW, I've used 510 pyro off-and-on for many years and recently tried processing 120 roll film using the Rudiger Hartung semi-stand method as championed by Zone Imaging Lab (UK). I'll be kind and say...

    Re: Using filters on LF lenses

    Using filters on LF lenses

    For 40+ years now, I've always held thin gel filters against the front of the lens whenever I needed a filter (don't actually use 'em all that often.) I have a need to use a glass filter because my...
  18. Re: Modified Surveying Tripod, Dutch Hill_Bolex.

    I've used the photo version of the Dutch Hill for 8x10 for many years. It's weight to performance ratio punches well above its class. I've been totally satisfied with it.

    Re: Shanghai Film Caffenol Processing

    I've only ever developed Fomapan 100 (4x5) in Caffenol and it works fine. I've shot quite a bit of GP3 in 120 format and like the results in D-23. If you want to try a different developer, as...

    Re: Shanghai GP3: First Impressions

    I shoot it fairly regularly in 120 format and really like the results developed in D-23. Not my "go to" film either, but when I feel like running light I toss a roll into my Zeiss folder and I'm good...
  21. Re: Arca-Swiss Lens Board Adapter and Lens Board Compatibility

    Wow, that's a lot of good info re: Arca lens board adapters. I wish I could find a 110mm 6x9 adapter that would accept a standard Technika lens board. I tried the one from Luland, but it didn't fit...

    Re: Anyone else printing smaller?

    I usually print 35mm to 5x7, square format to about 7x7, and contact print both 4x5 and 8x10. I rarely make a print as large as 10x13" and made exactly one 16x20" enlargement from an 8x10 neg. So,...

    It's been quite awhile since I've disassembled a Grafmatic, but that piece looks like the felt light seal that sits under the septum tray where it slides in/out. Kind of hard to explain here. If you...
  30. Re: Pyrocat HD - Differences/Effects between 1:1:100 and 2:2:100

    I've also seen a couple of posts and, I think a YouTube video or two, discussing a DIY type IR thing. You might want to poke around the 'net a bit, if you're interested.
  31. Re: Pyrocat HD - Differences/Effects between 1:1:100 and 2:2:100

    It's from a UK company named Nightfox and mine is the 119V. Unfortunately, I don't think this particular model is made any longer. My primary motivation for selecting this model is that the view is...
  32. Re: So stores/ebay sell 4x5 GG protectors but not 8x10?

    If you don't want to DIY it, Keith Canham sells a very nice gg protector. Back when I bought mine, IIRC it was $40.
  33. Re: Pyrocat HD - Differences/Effects between 1:1:100 and 2:2:100

    It varies, of course, by film and development technique, but, for example, for 8x10 Foma 100 I develop with tanks & hangers for 15 mins @21C (1:1:100) for normal silver printing, and for roughly the...
  34. Re: Pyrocat HD - Differences/Effects between 1:1:100 and 2:2:100

  35. Re: Pyrocat HD - Differences/Effects between 1:1:100 and 2:2:100

    I use it at 2:2:100 for pt/pd printing and for use on silver chloride papers such as Lodima or Adox Lupex; 1:1:100 for everything else. I've never tried it myself, but I'd guess that 2:2:100...
