  1. Re: An imagined LED enlarger light source for 4x5 -- NEW INFO FOR TECHNICIANS

    It was not just an experiment. It worked and still works. I have it still.
  2. Re: An imagined LED enlarger light source for 4x5 -- NEW INFO FOR TECHNICIANS

    A long time ago (2004) this happened:

    https://www.photo.net/discuss/threads/mad-ish-project-focomat-variable-contrast-bulb.148308/

    It worked out great.
    I don’t find any trace of the maker on...

    Re: Ilford FP4+ Developer Inquiry

    DDX is surely good and very convenient too. Xtol is good. Hard to go wrong with FP4 anyway.
  4. Re: EBay works Perfectly NOT! I prefer LFPF FS/WTB

    “boomer logic”?

    I’m calling BS on this.

    This has nothing to do with any kind of logic other than the mere expectation that you get what you bargained for. eBay has figured out a way to make...

    Re: Headache from Fixer Fumes?

    You might look into making or buying a vertical tank for your fix. I made one from plexiglas that worked pretty well. Its about an inch wide. Very much less surface area of fix exposed to the air....

    Would it seem safe to buy a clean lens and expect it to continue that way?
  8. Re: Schneider Super Symmar 80mm XL status question.

    Thank you, Oren.

    I forgot to not rely on the forum search feature and missed those threads, but I guess that means that I did correctly remember a problem with the lenses.

    So, how’s the 72...
  9. Re: Schneider Super Symmar 80mm XL status question.

    For some reason I remember talk about the XLs having a particular problem. Sounds like the occasional "schneideritis" is all it is. The one I owned was bought new and was nothing but wonderful for...
  10. Schneider Super Symmar 80mm XL status question.

    I bought one back when they were introduced and it was one of my favorites, but sold it when I quit photography as a job. Over time I have seen comments about problems with haze. Did this affect all...

    Re: Need feedback for building DSLR scanner

    1. I don’t think you will be able to profile the camera. I’d set it to a daylight setting and provide it with as close to daylight as possible.

  12. Re: Kodak XTOL Replenished - Small Tanks - Ilford FP4

    Xtol is a great developer. I suggest you use it one shot as it seems your current processing volume does not use the 5 liters soon enough. I really liked it diluted 1:3.
  13. Re: What to get: PS, Affinity, GIMP, ON1, other?

  14. Re: Hasselblad chimney as a loupe on 4x5 LF field camera.

    Corners barely clipped. Its only to let the air in and out as you focus but I have seen some that were clipped way more than needed. Th point I was making is that a big loupe or camera finder used as...
  15. Re: Hasselblad chimney as a loupe on 4x5 LF field camera.

    It is hard to get into the corners or near the edge with a big finder or loupe. I always found a small loupe to be better. A 6X 35mm loupe is my preference.
  16. Re: Warming/daylight filter with color negative film

    Don't bother with the filter and generally give it a bit more exposure than the number on the box. Maybe try 250-320 - that will help clean up the shadows whatever color temp light you are shooting...
  17. Re: Effects of B&W Rinse Waters into Septic/Drainfield Systems?

    Re: 11x14 experiences - please share yours

    Couple of quick questions on 11x14:

    I think there are 2 standards for film holders - one for X-ray and the other photographic - right?

    Is HP5 readily available in 11x14?

    Thanks.
  19. Re: Moderately priced monitor - how's the Dell U2715H?

    AFAIK, mine will only do 30 hz refresh at 4K. That worries me.
  20. Re: Moderately priced monitor - how's the Dell U2715H?

    I'll run this off a MacBookPro that probably won't adequately run a 4K monitor and I'm not looking for the latest ultimate monitor, just a solid monitor at a decent price.

  22. Re: Lens Test - Fujinon NW 150mm f5.6 vs Sironar-S

    You can find any focus shift (or just plain operator error in focus) by looking at other areas of the film. The scene set-up is at a slight angle to the film plane so somewhere across the film you...
  23. Re: Possibly purchasing my late friend's turn key darkroom / studio....

    Ed,

    In the time it took you to think about and write this post you went backwards financially.
    And it won't get any better if you put further effort into this market.
