    Re: Film availability in India?

    I had a bad experience with this with handchecking my being refused in BOM and VNS for my 4x5 kit, resulting in fogged Tmax400, while the Foma100 did not have issues.
    And, yes, I was polite and...

    Re: Bowens Gemini 500ws ... Profoto

    Euorpe based; I got Bowens heads used off ebay. For 200USD, the value can't be beat. They don't have the latest features, and they use dumb triggers, which is fine because I use a variety of gear....

    Re: 20th Century Camera reels

    I have these reels for 4x5. I have not experienced uneven development around the arms. The watchout will be if you use Bregger film, which I understand has emulsion on both sides of the film

    3200 W/S though, that's a lot of power to hit the eyes with. How did your subjects react ?

    Got a fresh box of film. Did some test shots, developed with the same method (with the rubber band) and same chems as before, and all sheets came out fine.


    My conclusion is that it must...

  24. Re: Jobo 2509n issue: rotates freely on center spindle

    Hi Mike,
    Don't know about the 2520, in the 2550 it works. You are right that there is a small force pushing the spindle upwards against the lid, but it did not come off or leak when I used it that...
  25. Re: Jobo 2509n issue: rotates freely on center spindle

    So... I did the development cycle with unexposed film from a third box. And it developed as it should e.g. fully transparent.
    That at least eliminates the development process.
    I'll buy a box of...
  26. Re: Jobo 2509n issue: rotates freely on center spindle

    Thanks Graham, I can't fully exclude it, but it is a new tank with a new spool. And it is sort of hard to miss how to put the lid on the tank so that the funnel aligns with the spindle. It is the...
  27. Re: Jobo 2509n issue: rotates freely on center spindle

    So, the plot thickens.

    I "fixed" the spiral on the spindle with rubber bands to see if is would make a difference. I shot and developed 5 sheets, all with the same exposure /settings etc.
    The...
  28. Re: Jobo 2509n issue: rotates freely on center spindle

    My suspicion is that the even when the tank reverses, the spirals stay in the same position, or only move slightly given how little friction there seems to be between the spindle and the spiral.

  29. Re: Jobo 2509n issue: rotates freely on center spindle

    Iíll try again and fix the spool w rubber bands. If this works iíll glue it in place
  30. Re: Jobo 2509n issue: rotates freely on center spindle

    Thx. Itís the right core.
    It came w the 2550 tank which can hold 2 2509 spools. In fact, there is a bottom part and a top part that can be detached
