  1. Re: Zone VI Compensating Developer Timer footswitch issue

    Interesting, that's how mine works all the time. When I insert my film into the developer, I just hit the footswitch, and the timer starts again and keeps counting up. I've never thought of this as...

    Fuji 300mm W w/Inside Lettering?

    Was a Fujinon 300mm W lens made with inside lettering? I see plenty of Fujinon 300mm L lenses with this lettering; but, no 300mm W's.

    I'm curious, because I know that W lenses with inside...

  6. Re: B/W film & B/W chems - What's in your darkroom?

    HP5 120, 4x5, 8x10 in D76. I like the results that I get with D76, and I like a higher speed black and white. As for Ilford (vs. Kodak), I want them to live long and prosper.

    Re: Red "D" on Nikkor-W 300mm f5.6

    That's what I was wondering. (Duplication.) At one point, I had a Rodenstock lens with a "D" in parens. Can't find it now; may have sold it. But, it doesn't seem like this would apply to a 300mm...

  10. Re: Do you standardize your screw-on filters by thread size?

    Yep. I had a Mamiya RB67 system for a long time. So, that prompted me to standardize on 77mm, multicoated, Schott glass filters. All my 4x5 lenses are 77mm or smaller, so I have step up adapters,...

    Re: Are you shooting more than one format

    Mostly 4x5 HP5 for black and white and always digital for color. When the occasion advises, I photograph 8x10 HP5.

    For travel when weight matters, medium format HP5.

    No need to be critical.

    The search facility on this site is a bit complicated and not very intuitive. And besides, an occasional repeated topic is a good refresh for everyone.
