    Re: Ritter 11x14 Feedback

    I got an 8x20 from Richard last year. Great build, light weight and a well thought out camera. My only complaint has to do with me more than the camera in that it's a different design from the...

  5. Re: Is the obsession with analogue gearing an obstacle to art?

    I sold all my analog gear in 2012 for many of the reasons you described. I thought my photography would get better. After 5 years and thousands of photos (that I never did anything with) I came...

    Re: Ilford ULF annual film order 2020

    Here in the states there is a huge difference in price between stores. Some stores have prices listed on their web page (Freestyle, The View Camera) others you have to email. In my search VC had...

    Re: Wet / dry plate photography

    Kent,

    I don't think that's the right link you posted there. Doesn't look like the wet plate process and the guy is not boring or dry.

    Bruce,

    The short answer to your question is yes it should cover. Here's a link to a blog where the guy talks about best lenses for 14x17. He list quite a few lenses and their coverage. I wold...

    Does anyone know what the minimum order is for Ilford? I know Kodak has an obscene number and the Keith Canaham graciously organizes people looking for the same film and size to make it happen.

    One of the better enlargers out there is the DeVere. You can still find them fairly cheap and sometimes for free. I was fortunate enough to get an 8x10 free from a lab that was getting rid of all...

  35. Re: Besler 45 V-XL vignetting; what's going on?

  37. Re: Besler 45 V-XL vignetting; what's going on?

    Here is the exploded view of the enlarger. The metal plate that is causing the vignetting is the lens stage, #22. The lens board holder is part #133. It has three holes that screw into the lens...
