    Re: Paper developer question

  3. Re: Half Century Old Brown Plastic Bottles Still OK?

    You might try to approach the chemistry department of a nearby college (or maybe senior high school?). They should have bottles like these available once the contents have been used up.

    Nice image.

    Re: Cambo 470 Wide not quite sharp

    Light source presumably is not in the focal plane; not even confined to any plane. You need an object precisely in the focal plane; e.g. the ground glass, with some lines scribbled on the ground side.
