    Re: Gluing camera screws

    Thanks. I’m thinking of a metal camera, though the wood camera solutions are good to post, too. When I looked on Loctite’s website, I didn’t see the purple or green anymore. I do see them on...

    Gluing camera screws

    Iíve had small screws work their way out of various view cameras. Iíd like to prevent that, but retain the ability to get them out when I want. I see that Sinar recommends Loc-Tite, though the...

    Warning - there is Sinar creep. First a Sinar, then a few extra lens boards, then a bag bellows, next you’re shopping for the little kit that lets you use the extra bellows to shade the lens, then a...

    Re: Grafmatic Back Operation

    That looks right to me. I’d only add to be sure the camera is more or less level front to back when operating the Grafmatic so the springs and gravity can move the septums properly.

    I use the same times as I used with HD and donít see any significant difference.

    Thinking about that, esearing may be right. I’ve developed hundreds of EMA negatives without bromide drag, but I’m using Pyrocat P and M which do not have the KBr.

    Re: Using filters on LF lenses

    Oslolens, that is correct. Focus first, add the filter, refocus. Or add the filter and focus for a single time. Some say simple gel filters don’t require refocusing.

    I’ll point out that Sinar...

    How does ebay know its taxable income? They don’t, so they’ll report it. If I sell my Nikon that I bought in the mid-70s, how do I prove my basis?

  32. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    I rewired my old Kodak bullet safelight, put the Lowe’s bulb in it, and covered with the CBX-2 filter. Bounced the light off the ceiling so nothing direct. No fogging.

    About the time this thread started, I used X-ray film with an old red safelight bulb that came in one of those boxes of photo stuff we accumulate. No idea what it was or where it came from. It...
  34. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    I have the 15-watt bulb that came with the kodak fixture. It’s still good. Kodak says a 25-watt bulb can be used indirectly.

    My tests this morning were with the leds bounced off the ceiling.
