  1. Re: de Vere 5108 enlarger 'control box' and neg holder

    When you say the negative holder is broken; what exactly is broken?

    Any chance of a picture?
  2. Re: New Film Processor with JOBO Expert Support, Ready to Order

    Oooh, having a metronome kick in for a set number of seconds prior to the ding going off, is a brilliant idea. You may wish to add the metronome for say 8 seconds after the ding anyway. The mind is...
  3. Re: New Film Processor with JOBO Expert Support, Ready to Order

    Very interesting.

    Possibly the best user manual for negative and print making for both colour and B&W processes I have ever had the pleasure of reading.

    I have since mainly replaced it with a Fujinon 250mm lens as I wished for a...

    Re: Developer Formulas for C-41 film?

    I did C41 using about three different C41 formulae, one was from a local industrial doctoral chemist, which worked the best. The other two were ones that I had picked up here and there. This was in...
  6. Re: Lina Bessonova Interview with Paula Chamlee (YouTube)

    I thought it was a wonderful interview, it would have been slightly better if Lina had a microphone as well; it was very hard to hear her questions and sometimes her dialogue.

    Other than that, it...

  11. Re: About red safelights. How much red is damaging for the paper

    The minimal experience I have had with a friend doing some videography in my darkroom, is that you will not get brilliant imagery, but quite reasonable imagery with Ilford 902 filters.

    These are...

    Re: How is Large Digital C-prints made?

  20. Re: Heather Oelklaus and her 1977 Chevy Pinhole Camera

  22. Re: Longest focal length telephoto lens with bellows draw under 300 mm

    Gray Nomad, I see you're in Bundy, if ever you are in Melbourne, then you can have an optic nerve and if you have your camera with you, you can have a go with it.

  24. Re: Longest focal length telephoto lens with bellows draw under 300 mm

    With regards to the Komura, there isn't a catch, they just do it.

    I still use mine on my wooden 4x5" folder sparingly, it's heavy and care needs to be taken, but it does the job. Below, is a...
