    Re: NOOB Question About Starter LF Cameras

    I recently bought a cambo with 150 & 210mm lenses and several film holders off Craigslist. I just wanted a view camera, even though I already had a wood field by calumet that I've had for 20+ years,...

    Re: Lighting for a copy stand

    OP, what I've done for a similar project is take an old enlarger, just the mast and base, (in my case a 23c) and drill a hole through the part that moves up and down, put a 5/8 bolt through it and...
  5. Re: Developing with Jobo 2509n tanks on CPE2+ vs. SP-445 tanks

    For what it's worth, I've never had a problem with the sp445 that could not be directly attributed to me. Just take the time to load it properly, clean it after use and remove the o ring when not in...

    Re: My first 4x5

    My first was a speed graphic and in the years since I've used many different LF cameras. Personally, I've never been that particular about gear as long as it does what I want. That means not leaking...

    Re: Las Vegas and Environs

    There may be photo opportunities in the downtown area as well, just not landscapes. It's older, the rents are cheaper and there are several galleries in that area. Possibly there are still some...
  8. Re: Musings on landscape photography from a landscape ecologist's point of view

    Perhaps narrowing the scope slightly could help. Something illustrating land management techniques and relationship to systems or urban/wild land interface? Just what came to mind. Good luck.

    I've used many methods. They each have their advocates and detractors. I currently use the sp445 because I don't need to do volume and because the lights can be on. I've read where others have...

  27. Re: Exposure time for Ilford RC pearl used as a paper negative

    Reciprocity has to do with the ability of the material to record light. It means as you expose the material longer it records less light. It's not in a logical way either. There are technical reasons...
