    Re: Moving away from Adobe

    I gave up Photoshop years ago and haven't missed it one bit. I currently use Lightroom 5, the standalone, one time purchase version. I find many of its features irreplaceable. I will continue to use...
  2. Re: Covid-19: Ilford factory in Mobberley shutting down for now

    It puzzles me how often people encounter news like this and the first thing they think is that the company is acting purely out of greed. WTF?
  3. Re: scanning 4x5 negatives in printfile sleeves

    I think John means that people make proof sheets (IE: "contact sheets") by scanning a page of negatives directly in their sleeves, exactly as you have suggested. I always scan my 35mm and 120...

    Re: Still Life 2020

    Hi Jim.
    Many flowers appear darker (or lighter, or with changed markings) when photographed on Collodion, which relies heavily on reflected UV light. Most of the Daffodils on the farm photograph...

  6. Re: Disinfecting Film, Cameras and other Photographic Equipment from Viruses

    I agree. I have the 2018 8x10 and its build quality is barely acceptable. I had to request a replacement focus bed (gears skipped badly) and the one I got as replacement is barely any better. I...

    I suspect the bottom line is that they can barely cope with the volume of orders as it is. Designing and adding a new format product is likely beyond their capacity right now. But if they made one,...

    Dallmeyer 8X10 Rapid Rectilinear

    Those look like injection moulded parts to me, not 3D printed. (Unless you have VERY different 3D printing tools from what the rest of the world uses)
