    Ray got back to me yesterday, it looks like my order may have just slipped through the cracks.

    Re: Star Camera Company

    I decided to search the LFF to try and determine the same thing. I placed an order in April, via email, and paid for the items at that time. I've not heard anything, and finally tried to contact...
  3. Slowing down Ilford DD-X (going more dilute than 1+9?)

    I'm working on perfecting processing 8x10 and 11x14 film in a Jobo 2840 drum, using either a Uniroller, or a Simma Roller. I've tried DD-X at both 1+4 and 1+9, I'd like to get the development times...
  4. Re: "Wiping" (aka Stupid Tray Processing question)

    That would make sense. I'd incorrectly assumed that this would be easy to google, but my google-fu has failed me, and I can't find anything by anyone else confused. :)

  5. Re: "Wiping" (aka Stupid Tray Processing question)

    The primary issue appears to be too much agitation. I'm getting uneven development, the most obvious was the problems caused by the Jobo clips for the 2840 drum. Then there is uneven density at the...
  6. Re: "Wiping" (aka Stupid Tray Processing question)

    I'm definitely inclined to agree with regards to 11x14. Besides, with my setup I can only handle a single sheet of 11x14 at a time, it doesn't matter if I'm doing drum or tray.

    I'm looking at...
  7. "Wiping" (aka Stupid Tray Processing question)

    I've been fighting with some intermittent processing issues using a Jobo 2840 drum for 8x10 and 11x14 film. I now know those issues are due to the tank clips to hold the film in place, and the...
  8. Re: Converting an 11x14 Kodak 2D to use Sinar Lensboards?

    I'm not really concerned that it's 3D printed, I'm concerned about any adapter with this lens. In fact I have other concerns besides this. I still have to get a lensboard, but I'm pretty sure the...
  9. Re: Converting an 11x14 Kodak 2D to use Sinar Lensboards?

    Thanks for the offer, that's pretty cool, and really highlights what is becoming possible with 3D printers.

    After giving it a lot of thought, I realized that at this point I really don't want to...

    11x14 Kodak 2D Lensboards

    I've been rethinking my approach to lensboards for my 11x14 Kodak 2D. Or more specifically, do I really want to use the massive lenses I have for it (360mm Nikkor and 200mm Grandagon) on my...
  11. Converting an 11x14 Kodak 2D to use Sinar Lensboards?

    Has anyone tried converting an 11x14 Kodak 2D to use Sinar lensboards? I've standardized on 80mm Horseman and 140mm Horseman/Sinar lensboards, as they'll work on my 4x5 cameras, as well as my...
  12. Re: What to do for a case for a Kodak 2D 11x14 camera?

  13. Re: What to do for a case for a Kodak 2D 11x14 camera?

    I was thinking about a Gator Bag for the film holders. It sounds like you're using a bag closer to what i use for 8x10 film holders. Is it something you had custom made, or something someone sells?
  14. Re: What to do for a case for a Kodak 2D 11x14 camera?
