    Flutot Shutter Service Promotion

    Carol Flutot mentioned to me (upon inquiring about her services) that she is currently offering a 20% discount on shutter CLA's effective immediately. She does great work (and has done so for years)...

    Well as the old saying goes, you learn something new every day. Bottom line - it is a great camera.

    Re: Deardorff Identification Help

    Luis. Great to hear from you. I am inclined to believe the Marine V11 imprinted number is legit for one fundamental reason. It is my understanding that the military awarded a contract on a specific...

    Re: Deardorff Identification Help

    I was incorrect in my assessment of where the number was on the V11 Marine. It is actually on the bottom of the lens panel so you have to move the lens panel up to see it. I made a quick pic of the...

    Re: Deardorff Identification Help

    When I loosened up the screw on the face plate that allows the lens panel to move up and down I believe I found the number 3 when I pushed the lens panel down. Tracy may very well be correct that it...

    Re: Deardorff Identification Help

    The cameras were not deployed by the military to make photographs from our perspective per se. They were used in combination with infrared film to identify camouflage of enemy positions as well as...

    Re: Deardorff Identification Help

    No question it is a 1940 Military V11. The reason I know is I have camera #3 (serial number was behind the front rise. My camera came with the original one shot back that looked like a roll top desk...
  9. Re: Film Holder for a 12x20 Korona Banquet Camera

    Yes, the notches are reversed. I believe that the original F&S holders (I have two that are surplus) have the slots for receiving the holder cut into the holder itself rather than a raised groove on...
  10. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    Well since this rather bizarre dialog started with you pushing research versus actual realized print results as it relates to the utilization of pyro, I have been to the field three times and made 15...
  11. Re: ordered film in a bulk from KODAK directly?

    Back in the 1990's special orders for sheet film such as Super XX and Tri X from Kodak were not uncommon but the minimum volume and prices were quite high. In 2009 I was able to get Kodak to cut T...
  12. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    Sadly this discussion has evolved into a whole lot of unsubstantiated proselytizing that there is no sensible person that need consider pyro as a developer because you have "equivalent alternatives"....
  13. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    Thanks for the clarification Sandy. I was hoping this reached your radar screen.
  14. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    Photography is not a theoretical art form that can effectively be extrapolated from manufacturers literature and wide eyed conjecture. Adjectives like "I also recall" and "seem to have been well...
  15. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    Absolutely agree John. After one gets past the chat phase and truly commits oneself to the darkroom and objectively assesses their results ie. what "moves them" visually in mounting and framing a...
  16. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    Yes, as long as you stay within its limited headspace it is absolutely possible to extract a quality print from HP5. All I am saying is factually HP5 does not have the density latitude capability as...
  17. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    Therein lies our aesthetic differences. ID11 and D76 were the first alternatives I ditched 20 years ago. I detest the milk toast granularity that it produces. Blahhhh. Seriously. Absolutely zero...
  18. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    You can read all of the literature and study this topic all you want. In this instance because the objective net result is aesthetic, the literature can only get you so far. Years ago I similarly...
  19. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    The only metric that need be in play is in the print. Pyro and pyrocat HD (in reduced agitation mode) have a discernible edge effect and mid tone separation that is simply unparalleled. At the end of...
  20. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    Would be elated at qualifying this assertion as I have put at least a dozen less toxic alternatives to the test over the last 20+ years and nothing even comes close to pyro from my visual...
  21. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    I also use a respirator when I tray process with pyro simply because it is an acidic developer that can emit an odor no different than when I mix stop bath from glacial acidic acid. The...
  22. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    I continue to be amazed at photographers that for some strange reason desire to change two variables in their process at the same time. If you rightfully state that what worked for you for several...

    Re: My Durst 138 Setup

    I have the identical set up (Durst 138S + Ilford 500 variable contrast high intensity light source). I was able to find a 4x5 mixing box and use it to contact print 8x10 through 12x20. Works like a...
  24. Re: Selling All 8x10 Gear & It Feels Good!

    You make a great point Steve. Where the rubber meets the road for me is being able to buy a standard size of sheet film relative to "off" sizes that have to be custom cut. The variability...
  25. Re: Selling All 8x10 Gear & It Feels Good!

    Completely agree that the trend line is discouraging at times. That being said, every time someone avails themselves of 8x10, the hope is someone else takes that baton and runs with it. Sometimes all...

  28. Re: Selling All 8x10 Gear & It Feels Good!

    I did everything I could to convince myself many years ago upon entering Large Format that 4x5 would be "easier", more "cost effective", more "packable" and "provide me an easier process to make...

    I recently completed a website of my photographic work. It took me quite some time to make it a priority but I finally persevered.

    A minimum of 12 for 8x10 and half a dozen for 8x20 and 11x14.

  35. Re: 8x10 Vertical Tank Development Issues

    Thanks for the feedback. My incentive to write the article was to encourage photographers to continue to consume sheet film and process it efficiently as possible to keep the film manufactures in the...
