    Sloss Furnaces - Birmingham, AL

    Saturday, we had a LF meetup at Sloss Furnaces. It was my first time there, but I know many LF shooters have been there as evidenced by a search on the forum.

    However most of the images are gone...

    Nice balance (light). I enjoy seeing your 4x10 panoramas.

  6. Re: Allowing Lens Availability to Dictate Format Choice

    A perfectly reasonable idea :).
  7. Re: Allowing Lens Availability to Dictate Format Choice

    Contact prints are certainly a nice option.

    Are you enlarging from 8x10 at all?

    What if you want a 16x20 print?
  8. Re: Looking for good Ball head w/o quick release

    I liked my Linhof Profi until the internal rubber or whatever "gasket" just tore into pieces.

    I am lucky and got in at a great time, and paid next to nothing for most of my gear including cult lenses.

    A Kodak Process Thermometer would be money well spent. I use a Type 2 for b&w chemicals and Type 3 for color.

  11. Re: Getting ready for bw development which developer?

    Just to be clear, there should be data for T-Max 100 developed in T-Max Developer (RS) at both the 1:4 and 1:9 dilution.

    In my testing, the film needed much less developing time to get my "normal"...

    Get the Horseman. I have a Graflex 6x7 back you might could borrow for your test purposes. Never used it, came with a camera.
  13. Re: Getting ready for bw development which developer?

    You don't want to run into reciprocity with exposure times for your tests. Do you have a self-cocking shutter?

    Another option would be a 120 roll back. That film size will be more akin to the LF...

    These are good suggestions for helping alignment. I need to do some tests to see if my film plane is out of place from the GG image, rather than an alignment issue.

    Agree Brandon. I'll have to make some prints and see what I can get, with the focus issue I mentioned above on the 300mm shot.

    Everyone seems to like the 300mm. I am partial to the 90mm. I imagine it may depend on print size.

    Out of curiosity I looked, and the Walker appears to be the same weight as my Linhofs, so not a lot of benefit there.

    Gotcha, just curious. Yes I'm sure the fall-off and performance suffered at f/4.5, but that hardly matters when you've got that main bolt that looks in-focus and sharp enough!

  29. Re: Getting ready for bw development which developer?

    Long exposures, really long exposures, muddy things a lot in this discussion.



    I bet. T-Max Developer, especially at 1:4, always gave me waaaaay too much contrast.
