  4. Re: Shanghai Film Available from ecbuyonline2008

    I have bought bellows from ecbuyonline with no problem, and shot a lot of Shanghai over the last ten years; and like it. It likes D-76 and D-23. With Rodinal, be careful not to overdevelop, as it...

    Re: folding hot shoe spirit level

    My favorite by far is the folding level on my Ebony. If they sold those, I would buy one for every camera I own.

    Re: 14x17 film holder build question

    I have often thought it would be nice to make a set of knives for the profile of holder rails and stiles. That way you could just run stock of any length on a shaper for use in any size holder, and...

    Re: Developer capacity, D-23, and dilution

    Right, but I develop 4 sheets with about 250ml all the time. When I was shooting Shanghai, I used to develop four sheets with 80ml, but that was definitely not enough for FP4. So, my guess is that...

  22. Re: Potassium Dichromate on Mahogany Cameras

    For what you want it for, I don't think it will cause you any problem. You can also stain mahogany with lye, or lime, in solution. Lye is caustic, so you need to use care, but I use it without much...

    If the MPP is a Mark VIII with a working rangefinder, you might be more comfortable shooting portraits with that.

    Right. The eight stop difference is huge, and the reason I though the OP was shooting through the film base (although I'm not even sure that would give you eight stops).

    I think, as someone else mentioned, that you are loading the film backwards. Are you sure you have the emulsion side facing the lens on your homemade holder? Looking through the lens at the film in...
