    Re: Chamonix Hs-1 Review

    Assuming you cropped the top/bottom, you need more like a 360mm or 400mm lens for that photo if you shot it with a 100mm lens.

    Of course you could use the Nikkor-T 360mm f/8 telephoto to shoot...

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

    I used to shoot HR-T at 50 but gradually moved up to an EI of 80 or 100. I think 9 minutes in Rodinal will be overcooked but it doesn't hurt to try.

    Are you sure the development time is 8 minutes? C-41 is usually 3:15 or 3:30 depending on instructions/kit.

    Centering the camera/lens on the face and dropping the rear should be the same as having the camera lower and using front rise on the lens side bringing it up to face height, no?
