    Re: Uva alt print box

    It's always a good idea to wear eye protection when working with UV printers even if you block most of the light.

    Re: What 8x10 changing bag do you use?

    Look at the Harrison film changing tents. The Jumbo tent will have plenty of room for 8x10.

    I was lucky enough to see this print at an auction preview (Phillips nyc) a few years back. Great composition and printed well. Really shines in carbon.

    Re: TMAX 400 on Clearance at Adorama

    They also have some Tri-X listed as close out and others discounted. They don’t say why but it’s probably because their expiration dates are getting close.

    Re: Hoffman MetalMaster

    Larry,

    When you push the rod in fully, it tightens the rails against the film and prevents film movement. Sometimes the rods stick and are difficult to fully seat.
