  14. Re: Flex tight X5 Flexicolor FFF files to TIFF -- want larger DPI without losing size

    can't you just use the image size in photoshop to change them to 300 dpi and turn off the "resample image" off. this won't change the physical size of the file

    Re: Sinar P 4x5 with 5x7 back??

    the 4x5 back is set up on the first pics and the extra back and bellows are the 5x7 which just slots/screws in place of the 4x5 back, doesn't look fishy to me and i have no connection with the seller.

    i use 350ml and just agitate 5 sec every minute and i do not use the base bit, no unevenness in any of my negs then. you might have to cut the fins off under the lid though as they can cause problems.
