  1. Re: Were Verito 18 lenses made in different barrel lengths?

    As others have stated, the design changed and I have both long and short 18" verito lenses. On top of that, the location of the lens flange can differ as well.

    This is what you can expect ... those pods dry out and there's insufficient goop to spread.

    For the rest, make sure the rollers are clean and free from debris.

    Nope, I missed it !

    I met Richard on two occasions and experiencing his large Ilfochrome color images is somewhat surreal. I agree on the portrait and figure work, just sublime.
