  1. Re: Show Your Compendium Shade on a Field Camera Thread...

    You’re all going to say that it’s time to buy a new lens hood. I could, but it’s only fifteen years old. Perhaps when I get paid, but it’s rewarding to do a repair even if it’s not pretty. A little...

    Re: Developing tank advice

    I like using simple 8x10 trays for 4x5s. I had a tank once that I would agitate manually, but, as you can expect, the edges were over-developed. I probably didn't have the right touch. Sounds like...

    Re: Ventilation specs for darkroom

    Thanks for bringing up that point. I want to set up ventilation via a portable floor air conditioner since it extracts a significant amount of air as well as cooling and dehumidifying the basement...

    Re: Modern Changing Tent?

    I too use a Harrison tent, but I don't take it with me while in the backcountry. The reason has more to do with the bulk of it than the weight. For those trips I take one of those change bags that...

    Re: Assessing Dollar Value of Equipment

    I wouldn't expect top dollar. I just think it's a crime to keep these lenses stored away not being used. I really had no idea where to start on the valuation of these lenses. In 2009 I bought a...

    Assessing Dollar Value of Equipment

    I enjoy trying to decipher the context of a found photo. Thanks to all for posting these.
  16. Re: Why View Camera & Sheet Film Today, in our here and now?

    My take: digital is about the distribution of images. Film is about crafting an image. More or less. I do take a 50MB Canon on multi-day backpacking trips now. Carrying 20lbs of film gear in...
