    Re: Pinhole Photography in 8x10?

    I've done a bit of it. Home made pinhole in thin brass, mounted on my Intrepid 8x10. Mostly I've used FP4 or HP5.

  3. Re: the thread for Kodak XTOL quality control issues

    I bought all of my supplies for making D76 and a few others from Artcraft Chemicals. Excellent prices, fast service.
  4. Re: the thread for Kodak XTOL quality control issues

    D-76 is D-76. As long as the recipe is written correctly (no errors) then they should all look the same.

  5. Re: the thread for Kodak XTOL quality control issues

    Start making your own D-76 from scratch. Its ridiculously easy. That's what I'm doing now, as Xtol becomes less and less reliable.

    Re: Homebrewed Film Developer Formulas

    Thanks for that information.

    I've been using PMK for the past few years, and it seems to last forever without change, so I'm going to stick with that, I think.

  15. Re: Storage of Exposed/developed glass plates?

    You'll find many of us on this forum don't appreciate it when someone's first post to the forum points to a Facebook page. Myself, I won't touch Facebook content, for love nor money.
  16. Re: Storage of Exposed/developed glass plates?

    My collodion glass negatives are stored in Gaylord Archival boxes, with neutral paper separating each negative. Stored vertically, of course, not stacked.
