    Here is a second composition from the same general group of trees as in my last post. Like the previous one, it is a black and white conversion from a 5x7 piece of Provia.

    Both of these lenses fit the criteria the poster requested covering 8x10 and "very" lightweight. You could add the Fuji 240A, Fuji 300C and 300A, Fuji 450C, G Claron 210, Germinar 240,

    I may try to spray it with some sort of acrylic spray but will make sure the spray works on fabrics. If I go down that road I'll post whether it works or not.
  22. Re: Harrison Jumbo Film Changing Tent - Sticky

    Bob, this is kind of a fall back one and the one I currently use is a Chinese one that doesn't seem to have any problem with its material. Guess I'll probably have to live with the stickiness.
