    Re: Durst hl 2506 af

    I have the 2501 which is very similar to the 2506. These are pretty rare in home darkrooms.
  2. Poll: Re: POLL for 5X7 and bigger enlarger users

    Re: Photobackpacker is Retiring

    I'm looking at the C12135 camera case. Anyone here use it for a Shen Hao FCL 810 8x10? The dimensions would suggest it would be a tight fit.

    I'm surprised no one has commented on this Preston so I'll jump in. His post sounds trollish to me. He just joined the forum a month ago and then this post with pretty weak advice. To assume that...

    Re: Developing Prints in Drums

    All my color work up to 20x24 is done in Jobo drums but I'm sure you're asking about B&W. Just for the heck of it I tried some B&W fiber based paper in a Jobo drum and as Drew said, fiber in a drum...

    Re: Enlarger Lens Advise Needed

    I have 240 and 300 Rodagon's and also have two 360 Schneider Componon's. Of these I use the 360 Componon the most. It's a beautiful lens and since I have a horizontal enlarger I don't have the...
  8. Re: Which tripod head for large format photography

    Gitzo 1270 magnesium low profile on Gitzo 3531 CF legs for 4x5. Gitzo 1370 magnesium head on 5540 CF legs for 8x10. Great combination of stability and light weight.

    Re: What did you compose at Waters Edge?

    I'll be in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan by Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in early October. That area is capable of stunning fall color if the conditions are right.

    Sorry for the VERY late reply. I haven't been on the forum lately. I use 1000ml when I do 8x10 in the 3005. I don't believe that is the problem. As I mentioned, I only see this issue with 8x10...

  24. Re: I'm curious, how many of you run your own darkroom for printing and enlargement?

    Darkroom only. B&W and color. Enlargers for formats up through 8x10. RA-4 print capability to 30"x40"

    Understood. But if the USPS were allowed to raise prices to offset that $5 Billion loss, postage would be more than 44 cents.

    Also, private companies do have to fund their pension obligations. ...

  37. Re: Need advice regarding Jobo CPP2 and C-41 developing: something's wrong..

    I don't debate the fact that you keep stabilizer off the tank and reels. The same holds true for photoflow and B&W. Jobo says the same in their instructions. But that is not the cause of vertical...
