    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Three sheets of Ektar from the weekend. Overcast drizzly day but I think it really brought out the colours of the trees and didn't hurt the waterfalls at all.

  3. Re: Midtone Machines - Automatic Film Processing Machine

    Big news update this time, the Chromabox has finally processed some film! It's been a while coming... Just two sheets of FP4+ 4x5 today but they turned out great (IMO). I've also confirmed that the...
  4. Re: Midtone Machines - Automatic Film Processing Machine

    Another blog post update, I now have a 4x5 sheet film holder in the machine and it looks like maaaybe it could take a 5x7 holder?

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! I'll definitely have to print them, too bad the largest I can do that at home is 13" wide but I'll probably have them done bigger externally.

  14. Re: Midtone Machines - Automatic Film Processing Machine

    Mike, the heating tank is just over 600mL of chemicals, enough for 4 rolls of film. From what I've seen the break-even point of injection molding when compared to other techniques such as resin...

    Mix of Portra 160, Provia and Velvia. Actually digging the Porta a fair bit, especially for taming really harsh light.
