    I have no affiliation with this company nor know anything other than what is in the kickstarter campaign. This is a 50Liter pack about the same size as the f64 in overall dimensions but different...

  6. Re: Results: Two papers, two developers, one toner

    I agree with that. The dichromate bleach I use is for bromoil so it hardens and tans the emulsion. Bergger products turn a lovely brown for me when using selenium and/or thiourea which is a tad...

    The schneider Xenar 135 has a nice rendering for out of focus areas and may be a bit soft in the corners if shooting f8 and below. At f22 the corners are sharp and the flare is minimal. The Nikon...

    Too bad - that C812 would be an ideal camera for me. 8x10, 5x12, 8x12 all interesting formats for one camera.

    Re: Semi Stand and EMA Development Question
