    By doing C-41 and E6 do you mean processing film? Because I don't see anything on the Darkroom website about making optical C-prints. When they refer to "Color files are printed on traditional...

    Thanks Keith and Larry, appreciate the comments. The Chamonix H-1 with the 5x7 back sounds good, altho too bad about horz only. I wish they had a picture of it on their website.
