    Re: Strange Experience in Monument Valley

    The power of positive thinking...I like it!

    I had a major light leak between the 4x5 camera back and the film back on a 3-month hitch-hike through New Zealand that ruined just about all my images. Hunt carefully and do not forget to check the...

    For 5x8, using an 8x10 with internal dividers to put two 5x8 images on a sheet of 8x10 film seems a way to go -- and you can go 8x10 if an image calls for it...or even make a couple 4x10s...

    I believe you could wash the anti-halation layer off the film in the dark, dry in the dark, then use it in the camera (would only have to be top one of the two sheets).
