    Whoa thanks for the wicked quick reply! Yes I was thinking of either the door as well. I was planning on using a blackout curtain so also though of putting it off to the side under my workbench....

    Re: AC, Venting, ideas for a Darkroom Shed?

    Oddly I don't find Ilford Stop Bath off-putting. Fixer yes, though I wouldn't say "off-putting" more like "noticeable". Granted, TF-5 is quite smelly (I only use it for film at the moment as a...

    Re: AC, Venting, ideas for a Darkroom Shed?

    Ah I'm glad you mentioned this as I was wondering how folks balance this sort of problem. It can get up to like 104F/40C here in the summers so AC is all but a must. A ventilation system would...

    Re: AC, Venting, ideas for a Darkroom Shed?

    Resurrecting this thread a bit - I started looking at options again and even bumped things up to a 12x12 shed in my plans for a while, which would certainly be better, but more expensive so I'm...

    Re: Jason Lane Dry Plate

    I've been wanting to try these out (and eventually wet plate). In part so I can also 3D print some glass plate carriers for various enlargers, but also so I can try this out for myself.

    Curious...
  7. Re: CatLABS X film, from Freestyle - any user information?

    I'm not Greg haha and this is a bit off topic to the original post, but I can chime in. I tried it and found the kit very good for what it is. It's a 3-bath kit (compared to a 6-bath) so the typical...

    Cool sounds like I'm on the right track then! Failing to place the highlights in the right spot is likely really what's caused me the most anguish I think. I might have time this weekend to try it...

    When Cinestill announced their CS6 kit, I was pretty interested. I know there's already home E-6 kits but the Dynamic developer I found very interesting, along with the fact you can buy the chemicals...

    Re: Color Processing

    How much developer do you tend to use? I noticed Z131 mentions using quite a bit of chemistry (e.g. 1L if dev'ing 2 rolls of 120). I was likely going to follow that since, at least for 4x5 sheets,...

    This depends on how large a print or scan you plan on making. I just printed an 11x14 shot on Porta 160 in 35mm and it looks great! Can I see the grain? Yes! Does it matter? Well, yes! I think it...

  16. Re: Thinking about getting a Crown Graphic as a secondary 4x5 for hand-held shots

    Oh yeah I definitely consider it quite capable! Takes up less room and would simplify my decision making too! I have been enjoying semi-ridiculous sorts of movements on my field camera. However, the...
  17. Re: Thinking about getting a Crown Graphic as a secondary 4x5 for hand-held shots

    Sure seems like a lot of fun! I like that it packs down a bit better too. Of course, IF I can use my field camera for something then I will. So not sure how much I might use it in practice, perhaps...
  18. Re: Thinking about getting a Crown Graphic as a secondary 4x5 for hand-held shots

    Thanks folks! That gives me a lot of good information! I'll admit I'm partly romantically drawn into the Graphics. There's definitely some GAS going on here hehe but sure seems like it would be a...
  19. Re: Thinking about getting a Crown Graphic as a secondary 4x5 for hand-held shots

    Hmm that's a good point. I was thinking I would use this with normalish focal-lengths. Probably the 135mm that would come with the one I'm looking at which is already coupled for the RF and...
  20. Thinking about getting a Crown Graphic as a secondary 4x5 for hand-held shots

    I recognize I'm going a bit backward as it were. I have a Chamonix 45F2, which I absolutely adore, along with a Camerdactly OG. The 45F2 gets used the most unsurprisingly, but the OG is fun to take...

  23. Speculation on why the Omega D negative carriers are white on top?

    I'm trying to work out why the Omega D carriers (e.g. D2, D5, etc.) are usually white on top, black on bottom. Most other enlargers seem to use black for both the top and bottom halves and I was...

    Similar to me though I haven't used many sheets. I'm going to give it one more try I think. If it doesn't pan out I'll just use it in 120.
