    Re: Jobo CPP2 not heating

    Not to sound like a siren harping the same tune, but take a look at immersion/sous-vide cooking units. They can handle what you're trying to do just fine, and can be sourced for under $100 readily...

    Re: Jobo CPP2 not heating

    If you can’t seem to get it to work, pop a sous vide immersion cooker in one of the bottle slots. Cheap, easily found/sourced, and can be dedicated solely to keeping your processor at temperature :)

    Re: Update on my office layout

    Will this area be used solely photo editing/scanning/computer work, or also for printing?
    One thing I've realized is that if printing, you want an area solely for print inspection, whether for color...

    Re: Decent Video Camera for Website Posting?

    I have zero skin in the video or audio game, but will you be recording sound during the videos, or will you be dubbing over video with audio/narration in post?

    Re: What 8x10 changing bag do you use?

    Harrison tent. Once you use one you'll never want to use a changing bag again. Ever, even for roll film
    When not in use at home, store it in a closet that gets opened regularly. Leave it unzipped so...
  9. Re: Do you know anyone in Los Angeles who can fix issues with large Epson printers?

    Contact Aztek in Irvine. They are an Epson dealer, and might be able to assist your friend in solving the issue. They also carry ink, paper and other sundries for scanning/printing. Fantastic people...
  10. Would you be interested in a large scale QR platform

    Hey all,

    I have been playing around with an idea for a couple weeks now, but I wanted to get your opinions, as I know they can be quite varied, as to get a general consensus in terms of...
  11. Re: I take back every bad word I have said about Kodak...

    I don't get much chance to shoot these days(spending most of my free time at the sewing machines), but when I get a chance to make a photograph, $10 is well spent on a sheet of TMY. It gives me what...

    Just like with any medium, the tools don't mean sh** if the end result is, well, sh**... Gursky doesn't deal in quantity, but quality(and even that is subjective depending on whom you talk with)....

    Re: Intrepid 8x10 Base Plate Modification

    If you want the best "hold", you need to have a (minimum) thread LENGTH contact area equal to the width of the thread itself, ex : 1/4" = 1/4" depth, 3/8" = 3/8" depth, etc. Remember, these are...

    Re: Lee filter systems

    Get the lee screw in rings, wide angle variety(especially for the 150 on 8x10).

    The 150 might require the larger size filters, bigger than the 4x6 ones.

  20. Re: Setting up a darkroom inside a shipping container

    Hey Randy,

    That's a nice looking building, and a pretty nice price too!
    (My) inclination for using a shipping container is simply for something different, something easily transported. I have...
  21. Re: Setting up a darkroom inside a shipping container

    Indeed it is. Consider it being akin to choosing how you frame your home(metal frame, cinder block, wood frame, brick, etc) versus the interior dressage.

    My darkroom will be centered around being...
  22. Re: Setting up a darkroom inside a shipping container

    Re: Sticky Fabric om Harrison Tents

    Same theory goes with tents. Sadly, we usually see how quickly people go through tents and other goods made with PU coated materials.

    I have a tent that is easily 10-15 years old(I am the second...

    Just an FYI on camera essentials items: DEET(or any mild solvent, airborne or liquid) will break down the silver coating on their items.

  31. Re: Setting up a darkroom inside a shipping container

    Other option would be a wide-span style barn, sub divided into differing areas, one for sew shop, one for wood shop. Darkroom wouldn't be too hard to finagle in there I guess.

    House would be a...
  32. Re: Setting up a darkroom inside a shipping container
