  1. Re: Has anyone here done three-color photography on B/W with a Speed Graphic or simil

    Going with good glass filters if there was a way to make a rotating disk with the filters mounted in them you could change to the next filter pretty quick. Oversize glass would be handy. Would take...
  2. Re: Has anyone here done three-color photography on B/W with a Speed Graphic or simil

    I would imagine if you had gelatine filters the size of the film it would just be a matter of loading the film into a holder with the gel on top.
  3. Re: Has anyone here done three-color photography on B/W with a Speed Graphic or simil

    Funny, while looking for them I found a couple of wooden glass plate holders with film sheaths. One needs some really tiny screws to put it back together.
  4. Re: Has anyone here done three-color photography on B/W with a Speed Graphic or simil

    I dont have them anymore, couldnt say what happened to them, its been a while.
  5. Re: Has anyone here done three-color photography on B/W with a Speed Graphic or simil

    Another antique option I found were film holders with the color filters built in. These I found were in poor shape and I never rebuilt them to useability but thought the idea was interesting. A set...
  6. Re: Paper Negative Reversal Process (In camera positives)

    Doing a little research on reversal processes and Ive seen clearing baths with sodium sulfite alone and baths with sodium metabisulfite. What would be the reason to pick one over the other?
  7. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

    I really like this one Steve, the tonal separation in the midground is great. Was that lighting, darkroom magic or both?
  8. Re: Build a studio camera from an Argyle 18 process camera

    Wow,been decades since Ive seen one of those. They are very light weight which should be a plus for portability. Hardest part is going to be building a back for it you can put a standard style...

    Re: Starting my own development ?

    If you fancy the E6 once you have the gear and good thermometer its no harder to do than C41, just more steps. The first developer is the only critical step and the rest basically run to completion....
  10. Re: Kodak Kodalith MP ortho film 2557, know anything?

    Any chance the film is simply not fixing in the time you are leaving it in. Also have you tried a snip of it undeveloped in the fixer? Kodalith usually fixes out very clear. Fixing should be to...
  11. Re: Kodak Kodalith MP ortho film 2557, know anything?

    Might try D23 or Technidol or equivalent, but as the film is inherently high contrast it will be difficult to use continuous tone. Stand processing in a tray might get you some interesting results....
  12. Re: kodak ortho film, know anything?

    Made to be used with lith developer, for extreme high contrast copy work, ie line legs and halftones. It can be tamed a bit with a pota developer but its a lot more fun to use for graphic effects,...

    Re: What is it?

    Has the appearance of a copy lens and would have to wonder if there are missing lens elements if the infinity focus is so far off from what is marked on the lens.

    Re: Focus Shift For Infra-Red

    Have you tried laying a ruler out and shooting visible and uv without changing the focus? You might see the focus shift directly in the image and be able to figure out the problem.

    Re: Focus Shift For Infra-Red

    Thats backwards of the way it works. The ir mark sets the lens slightly farther away, so you should compensate an unmarked lens by focusing slightly closer (which moves the lens further away).

    Re: gas bubbles on negative mystery

    Have you examined the film closely, shine a light on it to see if its a deposit on the film? A rewash and soak in distilled water before hanging to dry might get rid of it.

  34. Re: What is the need of a socket with a flat lens board?

    Another thing is it does provide strain relief if the cable release ever gets pulled or bumped hard. All the impact goes to the socket and not the delicate lens mechanism.

  36. Re: The Mystery of Dad's Nikkor-W 210m f5.6

    I assume you checked the lens for stepup rings or screw-on lens shade. Is the measurement of the actual glass element similar between the two lenses?
