    Re: Rejuvenating Camera bellows .

    Custom Bellows (.com) in the UK makes excellent bellows. Contact them. They just gave me a quote of £99.00 for an 8x10 bellows that I plan to send them.

    Re: Sinar F2 Vs Sinar Norma (4x5)

    I've had a lot of experience with both cameras, and I would go with the Sinar F2. Of course, there will be disagreement on this. Also, personal preference weighs into a decision like this. ...
  3. Re: anyone print 4x5 negatives with a black border?

    I have a 11x14 easel and a 16x20 easel. Both can print black borders. They each has an accordion style, expandable shade that covers the print itself as each edge is being exposed.
