    Re: Oriental Paper

    Can you get the Oriental Seagull RC-R Grade #2 and Grade #3 papers as well?
  2. Re: Anyone use the B&W King 5x7 (or 4x5) developing reel & tank (Nikor-like)?

    I also think this is somewhat dependent on the film and the developer. I just started using the 8x10 tank by 20th Century camera. These are different, probably plastic parts made by a 3D printer,...
  3. Re: Fujinon-W 210mm f/5.6 Writing on Front

    Well it started pouring after my first shot, so I didn't get to try focusing at infinity. But no vignetting on this one (without the lens hood). :)

    Yes, harder to see in other corners. Thanks!
  5. Re: Fujinon-W 210mm f/5.6 Writing on Front

    Bingo! Yes it did come with a lens hood and I used it. I'm glad I'm not the first fool to do it! ;)

  6. Fujinon-W 210mm f/5.6 Writing on Front

    Looks good, super soft, with this lens. Dark corners, not so ok which is what I get with the 240mm version of the Imagon on 8x10. I'm getting a 4x5 reducing back for the Intrepid 8x10, but 5x7...

    Lovely work, Peter! Really draws you in.

    Re: Third party Jobo tanks on eBay.

    The "Poilot" tanks on eBay are fine, they are a bit thinner, wobble a bit on the motor base, and though the top doesn't leak, it doesn't feel quite as solidly attached so I'm gentle with it.

    Re: Third party Jobo tanks on eBay.

    Well, the only agitation scheme I'd use it for would be constant on the Beseler roller base, and I've only done constant with Pyrocat MC. I should try another developer.

    I DID successfully do two...
  25. Re: Anyone use the B&W King 5x7 (or 4x5) developing reel & tank (Nikor-like)?

    The tank in fact does leak. But it's meant to be used with rotation, not inversion.

    HOWEVER, I use it with both rotation and inversion. A simple piece of electrical tape around the seal does the...
  26. Re: Anyone use the B&W King 5x7 (or 4x5) developing reel & tank (Nikor-like)?

    Two things to report on the 5x7 B-W King tank:

    First, I think the streaks that I was getting down the middle of the images at times was mostly due to using Pyrocat MC in glycol. This developer...
  27. Re: Anyone use the B&W King 5x7 (or 4x5) developing reel & tank (Nikor-like)?

    The only downside is you'll be using 1.35 liters of developer for six 4x5's.
  28. Re: Anyone use the B&W King 5x7 (or 4x5) developing reel & tank (Nikor-like)?

    Yes, I believe I've done this. Since 5x7's are loaded in length wise, the width of the slot in the reel is 5". Therefore, you can load a 4x5 sheet in width-wise.
  29. Re: Anyone use the B&W King 5x7 (or 4x5) developing reel & tank (Nikor-like)?

    Yes, great customer service and product. I have a development protocol that solved the under-processed stripe across the middle of the negative. I think this issue was partially caused by my use of...
