  1. Re: Can it be a solution for avoiding newton rings

    Make the top of the sandwich a diffuse material and the rings go away. Materials such as Satinice and white plexilgass. Also, as Vaughn noted, use any textured material above that touches the top...

    Re: New Ilford film came unsealed

    I just received 40 rolls of Ilford 120 film from Samys in LA. Much cheaper, shorter trip for me and the packaging was good. It was free shipping. Not a big fan of FedX ground. They will leave...

    Re: New Ilford film came unsealed

    I'm not sure B&H customer service knows about film. I received some 4x5 sheet film from them and one of the boxes was damaged. The shipping box had been crushed and the film box was bent and had a...

  7. Re: pros/cons of two different lenses at the same focal length?

    Use a pinhole. Focal length is wherever you use it. Not always perfectly sized for lowest diffraction, but close enough. I suppose you could have multiples holes in a pinhole plate and pick the...
  8. Re: Is it worth it to buy this Beseler enlarger?

    I agree, photographs. And for $200, it should be in good shape or special. Pinholes are not a problem except they indicate worse for the future. I have found several for much less, in fine shape. ...

    Doremus. I forgot about the Soligor meters. Your theory is sound.
  12. Re: Pentax Digital Spot Meter (Zone VI Holster)

    Exactly. Handmade is my guess, ZVI not being a big operation. Al Weber had a leather guy making a similar case at his Victor operation. Just an idea.

    If reversed, then put it in the right way. If reversed is the 'right way' (I don't understand that) then the glass thickness times 1.5. 1.5 mm glass is about 0.06 inches which 'looks' like 0.09...

    Re: Filtering Large Lenses

    Six inch gels or gels cut from lighting gels. Or use gels taped behind the lens. If you aren't shooting wide open, then a smaller filter on the front shouldn't inhibit the image circle.

    Re: contact prints

    Clear float glass, like window or picture framing glass, works fine. If you don't have a frame, use some heavy glass so that you maintain good, close contact between neg and paper.

    Re: 4x5 enlarger

    Focal length depends on your enlargement size. I make small enlargements, so I typically use the longer lengths. Really like the 180mm for 8x10s from 4x5. 150mm is fine too.
