    Re: Creo iQsmart3 and Supreme II scan speed

    Scanner delivers Dec 17 or 18th. I added the wet mount kit with it. Getting excited!
  2. Re: Tech Pan 8x10 in a Jobo - Looking for Info

    Lots to think about here! I think I'll order some PF TD-3 and also try C41 developer because I have so much of it. I found a article from Jobo indicating some good information. They recommend...
  3. Tech Pan 8x10 in a Jobo - Looking for Info

    I just acquired 75 sheets of supposedly cold stored Tech Pan in 8x10. My normal mix for my Jobo ATL3 is XTol Replenished. I've never used TP before however, but I've read that POTA is...

    To follow up here, you can see what I'm working with. The base of the enlarger rests on this Uline work table. It's braced above on the wall for stability. However the Uline...

    DIY Basebord?

    My 8x10 Zone VI enlarger is still giving me some alignment woes. The whole rig is just too heavy for me to easily wall mount it, and even if I did my table surface is not perfectly level. I think...

    Re: How Many Pros use LF?

    LF and MF cameras are primarily used for art and editorial work, and pros absolutely use the medium for that purpose. It's a pretty big difference from back in 'the day'. In like 1990 every time...
  10. Re: Should Kodak/Fuji rethink color sheet film for room temp processing?

    Absolutely not, get a Jobo.



    I used to think about that but 1. Kodak's problem is supplying enough film, interest in it has not been an issue. 2. If instant film can be brought back from the...

  13. Can a NuArc 14x18 Process Camera be Converted into a ULF enlarger?

    I've been offered a complete and working NuArc process camera that is 14x18 for basically no money. Can this be adapted into an 11x14 capable enlarger? It certainly 'looks' like it could...

  23. Re: Chamonix 810V Back Orientation Mistake?

    Well on closer inspection, the shots are all a bit out of focus. Not really enough to ruin them IMHO. I still think I loaded them the wrong way and they were just not flush with the focal point. I...
  24. Re: Chamonix 810V Back Orientation Mistake?

    Great news! All shots look perfect. Some real keepers. Not sure if I botched it or convinced myself I had, in either case, I'm still marking the back with a 'this way' indicator.
  25. Re: Chamonix 810V Back Orientation Mistake?

    Maybe so, but I think I'll now mark one end as the insert orientation. Problem pretty much solved. Still totally mourning for those shots though. Wah!
  26. Chamonix 810V Back Orientation Mistake?

    I find that it's easier to make a super clean image on 4x5 for lots of obvious reason. The films we have now are so fine grained that a guy like John Sexton is basically correct, that for his style,...

    Re: Digital Scanning vs. Flatbed Scanning?
