    Re: Plastics question for film developing

    First I thought "this would use a lot of developer"

    Then I looked at some math - using a 2 1/2" pipe to fit comfortably a 120mm roll, with a length of 35" yields a volume of about 172in3, or 2.8...

  8. Re: Centre filters for UWA lens - rear element instead of front
