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

    Two-plus years later, has anyone yet tried this film (sheets) in PMK? If so, what time did you settle on and how were the results? Thanks in advance.

    One doesn't need to. Those who reply to the question choose to. Perhaps in order to induce frustration by providing a well-justified "no reason" response. :)
  4. Re: Never should have been called "photography"

    This is elitist nonsense. It's all photography. Implying that it isn't flies in the face of both reality and this site's definition of large format photography.

  7. Re: Why View Camera & Sheet Film Today, in our here and now?

    The broader question is "why film (and darkroom prints from it) today?" My answer is: there's only one reason, namely, print life expectancy. As for why a view camera, given the premise that one...

  9. Re: Ilford ULF annual order period for 2021

    HARMAN uses "cutting masks," which I interpret to mean a die cutter, for each size of sheet film. Simon Galley explained that when, 16 years ago, the annual special order adventure began. He wrote...
