  1. Re: Looks like Adox CHS 100 II sheet film is back...

    I have been running it in Rodinal 1:50 and have been pleased with the results. Just can’t get the film in The US at the moment, though.

    Re: Tired of my ground glass

    I got a “Root Phi” ground glass for my Speed Graphic. While I love the design and the framing that it helps create, it would really help if the etched lines were black, like they are on one with a...

    Re: Best dual axis bubble spirit?

    Only Linhof could ask $90.00 for a $9.00 made-in-China level and get people to buy it. Gotta love them.

    Re: Fomapan 100, 200 and 400

    Are Arista and Foma the same film? I was at Freestyle this afternoon and the guy I asked smiled and said, “They are similar”
    100’ rolls of Foma 100 don’t seem to exist in The US at the moment. Any...
  7. Re: the thread for Kodak XTOL quality control issues

    I went to Freestyle today. I looked at (and picked up) the XTol on the shelf. It is indeed in a white bag, but it felt metallic when I bent it. I also noticed that the seal at the top is exactly how...
  8. Re: Lane Dry Plates: What is a practical ISO rating?

    Thanks. As soon as the sun comes out, I will try this today. I found a vid on YT by Lund Photographic on this same technique for determining exposure for tintypes. My Tmax 100 comes out properly...
  9. Re: Lane Dry Plates: What is a practical ISO rating?

    Ok. How does bellows factor come into play on a Speed Graphic with plates? I pay no mind to it with film and get proper exposures. My plates are coming out at least 5 stops underexposed. I have been...
  10. Re: What is the current trend on using dark cloth?

    What kind of “long reach loupe?” I haven’t seen very many available. Thanks.
  11. Re: Lane Dry Plates: What is a practical ISO rating?

    I am still having a hard time getting exposures correct. I shot my first box and only got 1 useable plate. I used fresh HC110 dilution B each tim. I also metered with and without the blue filter and...

    Re: Quality Light-Metric Closing

    This is a big loss to not just photographers, but to the motion picture industry as well. He was the “go to” guy for many cinematographers too. There’s no up and coming generation behind a lot of...
  14. Re: Lane Dry Plates: What is a practical ISO rating?

    No doubt it was operator error. I’m not questioning the plates. I will be shooting more exotic vehicles on Sat. I will try metering with no filter @ ISO 25. Is the blue filter suggested for cloudy...
  15. Re: Lane Dry Plates: What is a practical ISO rating?

    Thanks. This makes sense and calls for further experimenting.
  16. Re: Lane Dry Plates: What is a practical ISO rating?

    I’m only into my first box of plates, so I expect to be fighting the learning curve. I shot some plates last week, outside, middle of the day near the ocean. Held a blue #47 filter over the meter...

  19. Speed graphic pacemaker release plate screws

    Help! One of the tiny screws on the release plate on my Speed Graphic Pacemaker came out today and is lost. According to the diagram, it’s part #56 and it doesn’t give a size for the screw All it...
  20. Re: Dry Plates (handmade) - Tips & Tricks, Experiences & Examples . . .

    Ok. I finally got out and shot 4 plates today. They are still drying or I would post pictures. Naturally, The J Lane plate came out perfect. My hand poured ones? Well not so much for a first try....

    Re: How many film holders?

    Some good ideas here. I use white camera tape strips ripped in 1/2 and write on them with a Sharpie. I put each holder in a sandwich sized Ziplock sealed with a rubber band. They go into 1 gallon...
  24. Re: Which labs still make traditional optical enlargements from 4x5 color negatives?

    +1 for The Icon in LA. I have used them for years and never been disappointed. There used to be 15 labs that did LF C41 & E6 in LA. They are the last man standing.

    I need to either find a cam to work with a 178mm f2.8 Aero Ektar Lens or someone who can fabricate one for me.
    SK Grimes told me they can't do it.
