    Soapstone doesn't need sealing, that's one of the benefits of it. https://www.soapstonecompany.com/soapstone-faq/

    Re: Show Me Your Night Shots!

    Nice, RA4 is a great process, relatively easy and fun. The paper base does eventually yellow a bit with time (expired paper that is) but often you can't tell in the print, so I'd say use up what you...
  3. Re: This builder of retro film cameras says digital cameras are too easy, and no fun

    minnicks does nice work, as he should considering the high prices ($5-6k). You can DIY one of these yourself for far less. I've built 2, both for well under $600-1k including all parts, etc.

    Re: 8" Dallmeyer Pentac f/2.9 - Any Users?

    " a box of about 30 of the 10" versions"

    there must be a story behind that... the 10" ones are a lot less common (and larger!)

  7. Re: Thoughts About Schneider 240mm f/5.5 Tele Arton in Compur 0 Shutter?

    I'd look at the G-claron or Fuji 240/9. The Tele-arton 240 normally comes in a Compur 1 or 2 shutter, I am surprised it is in a copal 0 - someone must have adapted it. be aware it won't be f/5.5 in...
  8. Re: Any darkrooms in New England with 8x10 Enlargers?

    Camera Commons is a great place, I have been there many times (also was in a group show at one point). The darkrooms and facility quality are quite high. Hopefully they set up the 8x10 enlarger again.

    Re: Photos From Nikkor 360/500/720?

  10. Re: Can you diagnose this patchy look of the lens?

    Agreed, looks like a coating issue. Should probably not affect images at all. Does not look like fungus.
  11. Re: Alternative to the Schneider Xenotar 150mm F2.8 for 4x5?

    As mentioned, there's a lot of choices, depending on whether you need a shutter or not. Still, with still-life, some tilt/swing and shooting f/5.6 wide open will still result in pretty shallow DOF. ...

  13. Re: Which lenses fold up into your field camera? Linhof Tecnika, Horseman, etc. quest

    Not a technika, but:

    Crown Graphic - closes with a 135/3.5 Xenotar no problem.
    Speed Graphic - closes with a 150/2.8 Xenotar in barrel on a custom recessed lensboard.

    I have a DLC2, it's a superb camera. I should use it more than I do. Very well made. That said, with any camera that has movements, there's always the possibility for them to be off somewhat.
