    Re: TF-3 Precipitate problems

    Thanks to everyone for their helpful input. I think I'll go with a packaged fixer from now on, clearly I'm not saving any money or time rolling my own, at this point.

    If you arrange for the ruler to be at a shallow angle to the lens axis, and make a mark on it in the middle and set the focus there, it will be obvious whether your groundglass and your film holder...

    I've done the "pack the meter with the trigger pressed" trick a time or two myself. I carry a spare battery, and give how I stuff the meter into the backpack a bit of attention when I put it away.

    John, was an ND grad used in this photo? Or maybe just vignetting from a lot of rise. In any case, the effect is strange and unsettling. A very good image, I think.
