    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    I like the tonality of the Howtek scan. I guess the epson cant be trained to do that?

    Re: Photo Cart Based on an Old Golf Cart

    I looked at those on ebay, looks nothing like the sherpa carts for hiking with cameras. They had bike size wheels and some could be collapsed a bit for narrow trails.

  5. Re: Framing a darkroom against concrete wall

    You might want to put the ridgid foam between the joists and caulk the seams. Then you could paint. The insulation will reduce the noise a bit and keep the dust down.

    Re: Brown glare on negatives

    A picture of the negative would help. It may be an issue with the bleach or the fix getting weak. Extended times resoaking in the bleach and fix might make it go away.

    Re: Upgrading a lens shutter

    Thank you all for the input. I found a nice Copal no 1 shutter in Japan for a very good price and it all fit like a glove. Now all my lenses have similar shutters and Im much happier with my lens.

    Since the screw is out have you tried tapping the ring towards the back of the lens to see if it will slip off the barrel?

    A hair dryer may do the job to heat it.
  19. Re: Seized lens? C.P. Goerz Rapid Paraplanat II

    You dont want so much it gets on the diaphragm blades, so go easy with the oil. If it does break loose you may be able to finish the disassembly and do a proper cleaning.
  20. Re: Seized lens? C.P. Goerz Rapid Paraplanat II

    Probably a bit of corrosion and dirt in the aperture ring. A drop of penetrating oil at the rings contact point to the barrel, use the stuff sparingly, and try to work it. If it doesnt break loose in...

    The colors on this last one looks to me more normal “as the eye would see it” as far as color balance and saturation. Definitely dont like the odd color hues in the clouds on the previous images.

    Re: Beseler Universal 45 Assistance

    Also be on the lookout for electrolytic capacitors that may go bad. If possible best practice is to replace them with identical value tantalum capacitors which have no electrolyte to dry out.

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    I would try to print darker so the natural vignetting can do its thing and work on the color balance, those clouds look too red but dont know if that would make everything else look off if corrected.

    Re: Chasing star trails with an 8x10

    Personally I would use Acros for its reciprocity characteristics. Faster film will give you fatter trails on the bright stars so you should previsualise with that in mind.
