    Re: Fomabrom Variant 111

    This paper comes in either glossy or matt finish.

    I'm guessing you got a box of the matt finish paper this time. Check the box...

    Re: Ilford Ilfosol 3

    I've been burned twice by Ilfosol 3. Once the container has been opened, the concentrate goes bad very quickly. By bad, I mean no image at all on the film. Completely blank. As Tin Can noted,...

    Mike Butkus has info on the Sinar P and Sinar Shutters at his manuals site https://butkus.org/chinon/sinar/sinar.htm

    I have a P, and the twist knob for the swing/tilt gear change is very...

    Re: Focusing With A Chamonix 045-N

    I've learned a lot from this thread that I didn't know before. The 4 times focal length min subject to film distance was completely new to me, and very useful. I also learned that you can maintain...

    Re: Focusing With A Chamonix 045-N

    This is very interesting. I was suspicious at first, but after going through the math using the simple lens formula, it is indeed correct. The shortest possible distance between the film plane and...

    Re: Strobes and Pops

    From your own corrected table, +2 stops extra exposure would require 4 pops total. 2 stops is 4 times as much light (4 pops).

    Bellows compensation is often expressed as a multiplier factor. A...

    Re: Strobes and Pops

    Your math is partly right and partly wrong. The part that's right is 2 pops is + 1 stop, 4 pops is + 2 stops, 8 pops is +3 stops ..... The part that's wrong relates to the f stop increments. f...
  8. Re: What went wrong with the development of this sheet?

    Interesting. If the pattern is like Alan9940 noted, then it seems likely that the back of the film was in tight contact with the holder face. The Stearman Press link indicates that the...
  9. Re: What went wrong with the development of this sheet?

    Very strange that it only affects one sheet and not the other. It looks like a double exposure.

    What do the edges of the sheet look like using a magnifier (outside the normal image area). Can...
  10. Re: Please help evaluate what happened on this test neg with new Chamonix F2

    It's possible you haven't inserted the film holder fully. There is a narrow rib on the upper end of the film holder. This rib engages with a slot in the camera back. Since you're new to this, the...
  11. Re: XTOL not mixing well and not working any more!

    I bought some XTOL here in Canada just a few days before this thread was posted. Mine came in plastic bags, and the best before date was Aug 2021. The package said it was made in Germany. I mixed...

    Re: Shot abandonment

    An analogy:

    You're searching eBay for that photographic doohickey. After several hours of random browsing you find something at the right price, and from a highly rated seller. They Buy-it-Now...

    Re: Linhof Cams - Special Tool Needed?

    On a 4x5 Technika IV or newer, no special tool is required. That's as long as it's in normal working condition (not rusted or seized). I assume that also holds true for the Technika III, but I...
  15. Re: Help! Rear standard of my Linhof Technikardan 45S won't tilt. How can I fix this?

    Have a look at the tilt lock mechanism on the front standard. Take out the bellows so you can tilt the front standard as far as it will go. If it's able to tilt far enough it should expose the 0...

    Re: MPP - newbie question

    MPP made both monorail cameras and technical cameras. I've used their monorail cameras at school in the 70's, and they were of high quality with full movements, but very heavy. The monorail...
  17. Re: Linhof Technika V Rangefinder Adjustment

    O.K., thanks.

    I don't see the target or instructions listed on the Linhof site. I guess it's not available unless you're buying cam service.

    When I set infinity stops, I loosen them first and...
  18. Re: Linhof Technika V Rangefinder Adjustment

    Hi Bob,

    No, I didn't know that. I assumed the Linhof service folks would be using a collimater for infinity alignment (vertical). That's something a repair shop would have, but not the average...
