    Re: Pop-up darkroom...

    I wonder if the bigger market for this is people that can’t dedicate a room at home for a darkroom, so want to be able to setup and tear down the darkroom when they’re done?
  2. Re: "Extra" Aperture on Some Shutters (Copal/Schneider Symmar 135mm convertible)

    there are more knowlegable people that me on this, but as I understand it, its not the actual opening that matters, but how large the opening looks through the front elements of the lens. The size...

    Re: Notched Film Holders, Examples

    as I see it, the primary benefit of the notches is that the location of the film is marked on the negative itself, so you don't have to be especially careful to track the sheet once it comes out of...
  5. Re: "Extra" Aperture on Some Shutters (Copal/Schneider Symmar 135mm convertible)

    I think the only way to figure out what you want for certain is to actually measure the opening and see if it amounts to what ƒ5.6 should be on a 135mm (i.e. 24.1mm), then try a couple of other...
  6. Re: "Extra" Aperture on Some Shutters (Copal/Schneider Symmar 135mm convertible)

    if you're looking through the lens from the front with the shutter open, do you see the aperture blades once you're wider than the widest indicated aperture?

    Re: Notched Film Holders, Examples

    I've never done this, but I like the idea of binary--8 notches gives you 256 unique values without needing to differentiate notch shapes, and it good for 128 film holders--far more than I'll ever...
  8. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    I'll do a more careful test this weekend, but I had the same problem when I first built my darkroom ~4 years ago. I had some hand-me-down old expired Forte paper, and that fogged badly with the...

  11. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    I get that, but I’m hoping putting rubylith on it will tame it. As is, it works perfectly (5 minute penny test) on Ilford paper, but it burns the film with less that 30 seconds exposure.

    Re: Zone VI tripod questions

    I think the 3047 is rated to something like 16lbs (I have no idea if those ratings are standardized), so many 8x10s won't work with it, and even the lightest are starting to push to the max weight...

    Cant speak to the tripod, but the 3047 is a Bogen/Manfrotto head that uses the hex shaped QR plate. The standard hex plate costs about $20-25 new for a 1/4, 3/8 or a ones with thumb screw. They...

  21. Re: Bought a nice Linhof Master Technika Classic. Can I do the CLA myself to save mon

    Yup, I bought lots of stuff, including bellows from them. I had no issues, and the fit of the MT bellows was perfect.

    I replaced the bellows on my MT using the inexpensive $100 eBay bellows from ecbuyonline. They fit well and arenít too hard to install.

    Re: Film on a Plane: Check It or Carry-On?

  26. Re: Photo travel by vehicle, what's your favorite?

    I wonder if it was a Unimog? Those, like the Pinzgauers, and famed for over the top off road prowess, and are popular for "expedition" conversions. They're also insanely expensive.
