    Re: 20x24 enlarger easel options

    Kienzle makes nice equipment, however be prepared for serious sticker shock if you want a big easel.

    Non-issue. The paper base is white anyway.

    Re: Newcomers to LF: First Read The Book

    LF-specific, I always recommend Stroebel for any level and as a reference.

    I would dispense with the rest.

    No, the Fern Spring edition was printed by him and is the real McCoy. What I mean by assistants is that by the late 70s he had so many print orders to fill that he had an assistant with him in the...

    Re: Monorail vs. Folding Camera Weight

    Such a thing did (briefly) exist. It was called Carbon Infinity. I don't know much about it or whether or not it was any good.
  21. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    You’re right, this is ridiculous, especially for what I was going to do with it.

    Never mind. Thanks everyone.
  22. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Thanks. Yes it looks to be more expensive than most, but perhaps worth looking into since it has a clear base. I think I’ll bite the bullet and get a box of their smallest size (5x7) to play with.

    Re: 300mm lens 4x5" landscape

    Makes sense to me. The Schneider 300mm Apo Symmar L, for example, was over a kg in weight and not quite symmetric either.

    Another thing for OP to consider is filters. The big 300mm lenses take...

  26. Re: Higher fog in rotary development of fiber-based paper?

    Marco, you haven’t mentioned the chemicals/process. It could (possibly) help diagnose the problem.

    -Developer
    -Stop bath? Acid or water? How long?
    -Fixer type? Acid or alkaline?
  27. Re: Higher fog in rotary development of fiber-based paper?

    It is possible lack of adequate flow behind the paper might cause problems such as stains, but not overall emulsion fog unless, for example, one is not using an acid stop bath, and is using an...
  28. Re: Higher fog in rotary development of fiber-based paper?

    These days Anne Larsen often does that part. The cool part is that they do two sheets at a time like this. The two sheets are back to back (obviously) and flipped together for the full 2 minutes in...
  29. Re: Higher fog in rotary development of fiber-based paper?

    Something doesn't sound right about this. You should not be getting development fog on paper even with relatively violent agitation - unless there is something strange about the developer.

  30. Re: Citric acid equivalent for acetic acid bath.

    Plain white vinegar from the supermarket is typically approx. 5% acetic acid. Dilute 1+1 with water for a normal working acetic acid stop bath. Doesn't need to be precise.
