    Re: Question about JOBO expert drums

    I'd wager the percentage of correct answers is no different between those available in the archive and new, redundant responses to members who are too lazy to search the archive. :D

    "Kosher" for prints, not film.

    Sorry to ignore your request, but the only JOBO drums deemed "kosher" for 5x7 film are the 3005 and 3006 Expert versions. Save your pennies, or embrace the...

  22. Re: Fidelity elite 8x10 film holder question

    Generally, 8x10 paper is eight by ten inches. Film identified as "8x10" is not; it's about 3mm smaller in each direction. If you don't trim the paper, it will likely be difficult to slide into...
