    Re: Quarantine Pictures Any Format

    My rural state isn't under complete "lock down," mainly because it's already low density. I can drive 10 minutes and be somewhere that I see no one else all day. I've been taking advantage of that.🙂...

    Oh, myabe 15-30 seconds for the first rinse, 5-10 seconds for the second. I flip the tank over a few times, the idea being to wash the developer off the film.

    Yes. Mount tripod block somewhere else besides between the standards. It's normally between them to better balance camera and get them out of the way.

    Re: 75mm or 90mm based on the following....

    I have lenses 75/90/135mm for wide. The 90mm gets the most use. I use the 75mm mostly to shoot the interiors of abandoned buildings. Make sure you camera can handle 90mm.

    Re: Photo travel by vehicle, what's your favorite?

    I've gone from a K2500 to a RAV4 and now a Subaru Forester. I really like it. I need 4WD where I live and the Forester delivers. Plenty of room, comfortable, maneuverable, reliable.

    Re: I can't get my 4x5 back from the repair guy

    Sometimes you just have to cut your loses. Small claims court would likely involve traveling to his state, and judgments can be hard to collect. Cut your loss and just get the thing back.
