    Re: Devere 504 timer advice

    Thanks, that's great to know. I guess I'll have to make a few changes to the timer since mine switches between the power and the enlarger/transformer, but straight forward enough.

    Re: Devere 504 timer advice

    Thank you - I found a cord at RH Designs, expensive but should work. Failing that also found the pin diagram and could fabricate something, though I'd rather not. My home made timer should be fine,...

    Devere 504 timer advice

    I'm thinking to pick up a Devere 504 Mark 4 with Dichromat head + transtab. These aren't cheap (anymore :( ) and so I'm try to do my homework on this.

    Does anyone know if I can use a standard...

    Re: Images of mistakes - good or bad..

    I'm shooting 5x8 on an 8x10 by masking the back standard behind the film holder. It gets me 2 shots per sheet, but more importantly its the size I want to contact print. Bit tricky to track which...

    Re: post your trees!

    I'm actually masking to expose 2 x 5x8" on a single 8x10" sheet. Just developed my first sheet and I double exposed (more mental focus needed when shooting!), the second sheet was ok, 2 exposures...

    Re: post your trees!

    I've been wanting to return and take this 5x8" (masked 8x10) to achieve a comp similar to your 1:2 suggestion. But it's been just too hot to even think about it. Faffing around with the 8x10 in that...

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

    My first attempt at using xray film, just a quick test. It's on Carestream MXG, shot 8x10 (cropped here) at ISO 100, developed in PQ Universal by inspection. This is a scan with some tonal...

    Re: who do you use to publish your books?

    I've just sold the last copies of my small run of books featuring around 50 sepia and selenium toned prints. Printing to satisfaction was a challenge.

    The trouble with Blurb and any digital...
  10. Re: Can anyone recommend any backpacks/suitcases to transport my LF camera/lenses/gea

    Spoke to soon, little poking around and check what I've got and a Ultimaxx backpack for a Phantom Pro 4 drone works really well. Lens is in a wrap in the main compartment which is not ideal, but got...
  11. Re: Can anyone recommend any backpacks/suitcases to transport my LF camera/lenses/gea

    I get my 4x5 into a LowePro ProTactic 450 II easily but just tried the Gibellini 8x10 and there's no chance of it even almost fitting! Also have a monster Nikon 360mm f6.5 to compound matters. I just...

    Re: post your trees!

    Little tree in a wheat field. Always thought to photograph it passing it by on my bike, finally did it with the 4x5 on Fomapan 100, f45 around 30s without the orange filter I was trying to find.

    Re: post your trees!

    Hiking on the west coast of Scotland many years ago much to my bewilderment I spotted some of those palm trees on a beach. Come to think of it, it may have been on the Isle of Harris

    Re: post your trees!

    Bizarrely there are actually 2 sequoias close to where I live. I assume an enthusiastic Victorian planted them. They haven't reached the height of their US cousins but still nice to have little...

    Re: DIY 4x5 Enlarger with LED light source

    Great thread, been thinking to build something like this for a while. Built a multi-channel / process f-stop timer, working on an analyser now and definitely LF enlarging head next!
