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

    The film is being fogged, either before loading into the film holders, or after the film came out of the holders. The sheet nearest the core is OK. Is the funnel properly located inside the tank lid?...
  2. Re: Schneider 90mm Angulon on MPP mk VIII

    You are not going to get a lot of front movements on an MPP with that short a focal length. And getting your fingers in to manipulate the front standard is fiddly. If you can live with back movements...

    Re: Darkroom Ventilation advice, please

    I put my extraction vent in the ceiling. It was a pragmatic choice, but less than ideal. I clears the fumes and ventilates OK, but in the winter it also removes the warm air! Since my intake is from...

    Re: 5x7 back for Intrepid 8x10

    The Intrepid (Kickstarter version) is bellows limited with short focal lengths (say under 180mm). I can get a 90mm to focus by recessing it, but back tilt is about all the movement you have. I can do...

    Shades of an Albert Renger-Patzsch industrial subject, but for transportation. I like the ambiguity of scale.

  11. Re: AC, Venting, ideas for a Darkroom Shed?

    Since I am in the San Francisco East Bay, I rarely have to deal with temperatures below freezing, or much above 85F, and only for short periods. I insulated the shed I use (about the same size - the...

    Strange how the soft light makes this seem hyper-real. So much revealed that would be lost in harsher light.

  21. Re: Looking to get into IR goggles to help me with my film handling

  23. Re: Developing with Jobo 2509n tanks on CPE2+ vs. SP-445 tanks

    If you have the Jobo and existing tanks (with columns?), I'd try the 2509n reels. They have resale value if you decide you don't like them.

    Fascinating, if a bit unnerving, that the bicycle is apparently balanced without support. I presume there is a block under the hidden far pedal, but the illusion is good.
  25. Re: Organizing film holders - what system do you use?

    Empty holders (in the darkroom) are stored in their bags with the slide in the unexposed state but the flaps open. No, don't put weight on them - stand then in a shoe box! Why set the dark slides to...

  28. Re: I'm curious about using same lenses with different camera makes... I'll explain

    The adapter I use on my MPP VII to mount Wista boards is actually a shim - it fits behind the board, as the MPP mount is deeper. The real issue with the MPP is that the front standard opening is...
  29. Re: I'm curious about using same lenses with different camera makes... I'll explain

    Adapters help. My 450mm is on a Sinar board because it only works with my 8x10. Most of the rest are on Wista compatible boards that I can use on the 8x10 or MPP using an adapter, or directly on the...
  30. Re: Musings on landscape photography from a landscape ecologist's point of view
