    Re: Post Here OLD LF Camera Fails

    I started with a 4x5" Sanderson 'hand & stand'. The bellows were light tight but I kept getting part of the film obscured. It looked like the slide wasn't fully pulled, but I eventually figured that...
  2. Re: Dallmeyer 3"=75mm Rectilinear Patent lens query

    Can anyone shed any light on the purpose of these two items. There are in the leather box with the half-plate camera, dark slides, lenses, loupe etc. I haven't seen them in the flesh & only have the...
  3. Re: Dallmeyer 3"=75mm Rectilinear Patent lens query

    Gents,

    Thanks for your contributions. The lenses shown are in a museum, so I'm a bit limited to what I can do with them. However, I've found a Ross 3.25" for sale so I could test the coverage of a...

  5. Dallmeyer 3"=75mm Rectilinear Patent lens query

    Hi,

    I am trying to match some photos taken in 1907-8 with equipment accompanying a half-plate R J Beck camera now in the Oxford Museum of Science. The camera was used by T.E. Lawrence for castle &...

    Re: Hello From The UK (West Sussex)

    Anthony,

    Thanks for this information. Always useful to know how others in the UK are going about it. I am similarly mixing my developer & stop to neutralise before putting the in the drain. I use...

    Re: Hello From The UK (West Sussex)

    Hello from Kent, Anthony.

    I'm also a relative newcomer to the large format world, incl. home development.

    Can you say how you go about disposal of photographic chemicals in West Sussex ?

  8. Re: Thornton Pickard Imperial tripod mounting plate

    Keith,

    Did you sort out a tripod ring ? Looking at my half-plate (not a T-P but probably similar) they don't look that easy to make from scratch.

    Re: Fomapan 100, 200 and 400

    Milonian - Thanks for the comments. I did take some test exposures, but using 5x4" film in an adaptor to reduce costs a bit. Obviously those tests didn't go to the edges of a half-plate neg, so it...

    Re: Fomapan 100, 200 and 400

    This was taken with the same equipment, but portrait of course, and less rise. Same development process but less time in the stop. Seems like a better result, but with some appreciable light leaks in...

    Re: Fomapan 100, 200 and 400

    Hi,

    I would appreciate some pointers on how I might improve on this photo, my first using half-plate. I'm not getting the 'crispness' and detail I was hoping for. It's FOMA100 half-plate (6.5 x...
  12. Re: Is this emulsion 'damage' due to a light leak or chemicals ?

    I took another 4x5" (this time with a 5" TTH Primoplane lens) and started the 10 sec shake and then alternate rolling soon after pouring and putting the cap on the tube. No strange effects this time....
  13. Re: Is this emulsion 'damage' due to a light leak or chemicals ?

    Thanks for the replies. I have noticed that the film can move inside the tube during development. The longer tube length was really so I could move later to half-plate with the same tube. Also, the...
  14. Is this emulsion 'damage' due to a light leak or chemicals ?

    Hi,

    I used my 1910-ish half-plate camera for the first time yesterday. I'm awaiting film for it, so I made up a 4 x5" adaptor so I could test a new shutter blind and see what the image from the...
