    Re: Era, Shanghai, or something else?

    I just added a few minutes to the time in the developer. The normal time in Bath A is 5 or 6 minutes -- for 400 I leave it over 10 minutes. The neg is more contrasty, as expected, but it still...

    Re: Era, Shanghai, or something else?

    In my experience Shanghai behaves almost exactly as fp4 for time, reciprocity and such. I was also able to push it to 400 fairly easily in Barry's 2 baths (Metol)

    Re: Anti-Newton Ring Glass??!!?!

    Hmm having the emulsion up doesn't make much sense. It should be down, toward the lens; otherwise you are scanning thru the film base.

    Re: Chamonix Reflex Viewer

    I used a crown graphic for a long time before I got the Chamonix, and I was happy with the folding hood for 95% of my shots. Including precise focussing! You just can't beat the compact size of that.

    I used a Sinaron 300mm for some time, and now I only use the Sinaron 240mm f5.6. It's just wide enough to be wide, and not wide enough to "stretch corners". And since these lens are giganormous, I...
