    Re: Exposure, Light Leak or Darkroom Issues?

    Agreed, light leak somewhere. Did you use the same film holder for all shots? If so, it's probably the holder, if not then it could be the camera back. Make sure the holder is seated correctly before...

    Re: Split grade printing weirdness

    I do have some old filters, but they are at least 5 years old now. Will do some tests next weekend, might also try the G5 exposure first to see I'm able to produce more satisfactory results that way.

    Re: Long life opened liquid paper developer

    If you're not married to tank processing, have you considered buying raw chemicals & just mixing up D76 as needed. Works well as a one-shot paper developer (by inspection in a darkened bathroom).

    Re: Split grade printing weirdness

    Hmm that's interesting. In my experience with Ilford WTFB the G0 exposure takes a long time to impact the shadows. In this case though, it was almost as if the G5 was not necessary.

    Split grade printing weirdness

    Hi all,

    I've dusted off the Wista and got back into the darkroom after a few years' hiatus. Since I started printing I've always applied the split grade technique by finding the G0 exposure...

    Re: Introduction & request for advice

    So I finally went and plumped for the MK Vii - a new adventure to familiarise myself with all the extra workings of an LF camera! One thing is confusing me though: should the 90mm lens only run on...

    Re: Introduction & request for advice

    I'd been wondering about those as I've read that they have most movements that landscape photogs require. I've spotted a Mk VII complete with Schneider Symnar 150mm and Angulon 90mm along with 12...

    Re: Introduction & request for advice

    You are quite right of course, please excuse my ignorance! Would you therefore recommend a field camera over a press camera? My question regarding the weather was whether (sic) it is still possible...
