    Re: Fitting Graphic-Kowa 210mm F9 in Copal 1

    Conrad, great intel. I have a set of rubber cones for removing lens elements (e.g. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0013HFYKK). Does that seem like the right tool?

    If they don't align correctly, would the problem typically be with where the scale starts (need to shift the scale over) or with the spacing between stops (need to make a new...

    Thanks, Steve. I'll make sure to ask any potential seller to unscrew both front and rear to check.

    With respect to the f/stop scale, I didn't mean to ask about perfect calibration. Rather, are...

    Fitting Graphic-Kowa 210mm F9 in Copal 1

    I'm in the market for a wide-angle 8x10 for field use.

    If I buy a Graphic Kowa 210mm f/9 in barrel, can I fit it in the Copal 1 shutter with f/9 scales that I already have without much fuss? From...

  13. Re: Fuji HR-U X-ray Film, 510 Pyro & Albumen Printing

    I was thinking about why 400-800 ISO might work.

  18. Re: Fuji HR-U X-ray Film, 510 Pyro & Albumen Printing

    Vaughn, HR-U is double sided and it is not very sharp, especially if you are used to regular film and / or plan to enlarge from 4x5 or scan it and blow it up to screen size.

    It is also very...

    Jody, thanks for the tips. It's interesting that halogens are still preferred and thank you for the tips on flicker and shutter speed. Maybe I can supplement the LEDs with warmer light.

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

    Paul, you can kind of use anything that will hold water and put glass in the bottom if it's not smooth. It has to be /really/ smooth if you're going to let the wet emulsion touch it.

    I hear you about not re-inventing the wheel, but for me anyway, I don't have the safelight fixture and gel that you have. It would be convenient to have a bare bulb that just works for all of the...
  32. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    I haven't tested the Lowe's bulb so this is just a guess, but based on my experience with two other red LEDs and HR-U film, I think 1A red filter you have in front of the bulb might be important.
