  1. Re: B&W digital workflow....what's yours?

    You guys know better than I do. If you will, I've used Nikon Coolscan LS8000 for tons of scans. Switching to Nikon D750 since Negative Supply came out with their equipment (negative holders) in 2019...

    Re: Fomapan 100, 200 and 400

    Many, many nice shots here. Enough to inspire me to give Foma another try. Tried 200 and didn't care for it per se, but even the 200 shots here show it was more likely me and not the film. Doh. ...

    Re: Lightbox for film scanning

    FWIW, I've used a Logan A-5A from some years back and it seems to work fine. I mis-documented here the other day. I keep confusing Negative Supply, Negative Lab Pro and Negative Solutions! Too many...

    Re: Color Processing

    FWIW, I think C41 is far easier than B&W. I've been using a JOBO and that helps enormously (highly recommended). Haven't tried E6.... so I leave you there. Most of what I've done is 35mm and 120, but...

    I regret that since the 5/23 target for our meet-up now looms and our local establishments remain closed, it seems right to post-pone this event until the Fall. At that time if we're...

    Re: Rodinol to D 23

    Curious about the "keeps" bit.

    Most of what I've read is about D23 has been using it one-shot and mixing at time-of-use. I've been doing that with Caffenol and thinking maybe D-23 might not be...

    Hey CDK, thanks. Call it a semi-fossil (me) digs up a fossil (this post). I'm using a Polarizer, YG, Y#8, Orange and Red#23 for B&W, and may get a color film filter or two if I really go crazy (which...

  17. Re: Lee Filters - anyone using these or Cokin et al squares?


    For digital, I suspect your're right. However, for B&W film, I don't see one of those three offering B&W contrast filters. Not one.
    Each of them makes a Lee or Cokin look inexpensive...

  20. Lee Filters - anyone using these or Cokin et al squares?

    I've got the 67mm rounds, but beginning to play with Lee's squares. Rounds are definitely more portable in a way. Squares allow multiples and grads and polarizers, and that has some appeal (until it...
  21. Re: Backpacks for 4X5 with 3 small lenses and Chamonix F2

    I manage to get to the 67mm filter - with adaptor rings. Do you use round filters, or a filter holder with squares? I'm kind of in-between. Round pack small, but you need the square for a grad......

  26. Backpacks for 4X5 with 3 small lenses and Chamonix F2

    Late intro says it all. I've posted here a few times already. So I'm late posting an Intro... but I'm also at 62, late getting an intro to LF. Guess that's my M.O. 'cause I've even posted that I'd...
