    Re: Zone VI Type II 8x10 VC Head Problem

    Electronic components, except perhaps electrolytic caps, don't fail sitting in a box. And those caps look fine. This is even too young for 'infant mortality'. It must be assumed that the product...

    Re: Zone VI Type II 8x10 VC Head Problem

    I had the Aristo version for a time. Long ago. It was a simpler design than this, so probably no correlation.

    When you say "white light", I have to assume that is blue + green as there is no...
  3. Re: Keeping borders square when trimming photos

    Rotatrim here too. Nice cutter. Had it 40 years. It came out of square right out of the box and not that sharp either. Sent to factory for a tune up. They sharpened but did nothing about square....
  4. Re: field processing and contact printing wet negs?

    There once was a quick dry solution for film. We used it at the newspaper. It was probably alcohol which would displace the water in the neg and then dry quickly.

    Silver plated out of fixer onto jug

    I hadn't printed on some time. My gallon plastic jug was grey on inside from the silver in the old rapid fix. Hypam. I've seen this before, but now it's happened with fix that fresh and little used...

    I've used the West. It's very good. I've heard good things about having them sprayed with truck bed liner stuff. Many years ago when I had no money, my friend and I made a cardboard sink and covered...

  9. Is there a small darkroom available for borrow or rent in Taos New Mexico ?

    Title says it all. My daughter is in Taos and would like to do some printing. Nothing fancy required. Do you know of possibilities?

    Thank you fellow photogs.

    Re: Technique for increasing depth of field

    Is there a telecentric lens available for large format? These change the rules on depth-of-field. DOF is no longer an issue, but everything is a trade. Only one magnification.

    Re: A Pinhole is a Lens

    A pinhole is not a lens optically, physically, nor mathematically. A completely different beast that fools you to call it a lens.
  12. Re: Depth-of-focus problem, enlarging lenses

    I use Satinice; specifically the 1/8" clear type. This gives about 1/3 stop loss per layer.

    The first layer is 1.5" below the LEDs, but that is for widely spaced, 1 amp LEDs. The second is...

    My sink is that size. I built mine flat and level and adjusted with blocks under the legs. It's about 1/8" per foot and it's plenty.

    Re: How Many LF Formats Do You Use/Own?

    4x5 Chamonix, 5x7 Deardorff, and 8x10 Deardorff. I haven't done much with any of them since the Damndemic. And the 8x10 is up for sale soon. I agree with Kirk.

    I used black paper. It was a heavy stock, probably 2 point. It can be sanded or peeled thinner if needed. Or it can be stacked; glued with rubber cement, if thicker is needed. A piece of film...
  19. Re: When do aspherically ground lenses date from?

    The Schmidt corrector plate is an aspheric surface with a 'wave shape' cross-section. Originally used in some telescopes, it is now used for other applications. About 100 years old.

    All my Deardorffs, 3 of them, needed the ground glass repositioned. I did it by measurement, but photograph a ruler with small f/# works too.
  26. Re: Schneider Super Angulon 72mm XL - filter conundrum

    Only saying that as one stops down, the radius of use of all the elements stops down too. At 5.6 you need the full front element. At f/22, the image is no longer in the outer fringes of the glass. ...

    I use 4" gels (poly) with mine. Either handheld or in a Lee snap holder. Unless you are using f/5.6, then your image rays don't go through all the glass and your filter doesn't have to cover...
  28. Re: Anybody used condenser lenses to build a taking lens?

    Try it. If you like soft fuzzy. These lens are probably cast, not ground, so the surface curvature could be anything.

    Re: Butane for developer preservation

    breath still has much oxygen. We are not efficient about the conversion because CO2 is poisonous to humans. CO2 is acidifiying, but not much. Ask the coral.

    Rectified AC is just higher frequency w overtones. Basically a mess unless you filter or regulate.

    Buy a 120vac coil w DC contacts. A 'contacter' is such a device. Check contact currents.
  32. Re: LED enlarger head questions, elgatosuizo's design

    Dry relay easiest. Check your ratings.

    I used a PFET and an opto coupler. Tricky business.

    Whatever. You want ground isolation from unit to unit.

    Re: Point Reyes Advice?

    Two days? Don't take so much gear. You'll spend your time figuring what to do, rather than doing it. Whichever camera you take, you'll have plenty to photograph.
