  1. Re: Any film restoration experts here that can confirm if E6 is more archival than C-

    Farther north. It's a tailing wheel near Jackson, off Hwy 49. We were on a tour of the Gold Rush country. I don't remember where the faded image was taken and my dad was not one to write notes on the...
  2. Re: Any film restoration experts here that can confirm if E6 is more archival than C-

    Based on the Ektachrome slides I inherited, Kodak made a marked improvement in color stability between 1961 and mid-1962. These images were taken with the same camera and stored under the same...

    Re: Foot candle to aperture and ISO.

    "Basic exposure rule", as taught in film school back in the day:

    For ISO 100: 100 foot-candles = 1/50 @ f2.8

    We used incident meters, but sharktooth's recommendation of a gray card and...

  5. Re: Size of Graflex back of 4 X 5 Graflex Series D or Super D

    I have a Series D. Assuming I understood your question correctly: W = 6-5/16"; H = 6-7/8" for the metal assembly that's screwed to the back of the camera.
  6. Re: tri-color photography with oneshot camera: exposure?

    Curtis recommended 1/100 at F7 for daylight exposure with Super XX. If my math is correct, that's roughly minus 2 stops from "Sunny 16", so your estimate of 1-2/3's stop seems correct. I made a PDF...

    Re: Kodacolor Introduction Party 1928

    Amongst my dad's things was a Kodacolor filter set. The camera was optimized for 16 fps, so 1/30th shutter speed with a max aperture of f1.9. The inclusion of the ND filter has always struck me as a...

    Re: How many foot candles do I need?

    One of the few things I remember from 1970s film school, largely because it was beaten into us, is "basic exposure rule":

    ASA/ISO 100, 1/50th @ f2.8 = 100 fc

    f2.8 > f45 is 8 stops, so you'll...

  12. Re: glueing polyester filters to glass for a tri-color camera

    Post-WW 2, Curtis recommended Super XX for their tri-color cameras and suggested a baseline daylight exposure of 1/100th @ f7. If my math is correct, that effectively rates the film at about ISO 40...

    You're thinking of a side arm. They're not inexpensive but invaluable if you need to shoot flat copy on a regular basis. See https://www.amazon.com/Manfrotto-131D-Tripods-heads-Degree/dp/B001FRO1VQ...

    Re: Vintage Glass Plate Negatives

    My grandfather, circa 1908, taken near the family's home in the UK. He was born in 1891 and appears to be around 17 years of age, hence the guess at the date.
