    Re: Shooting Rollei IR WIth IR Unsafe Bellows

    Thanks John! Yeah it's subtle but it's there (the treetops most notably). I was able to wring out more in 120 (using the same R72) but different season. I was indeed also thinking about trying the...

    Re: Shooting Rollei IR WIth IR Unsafe Bellows

    As an update, I managed to get 3 out of 4 sheets from last weekend! Here's one:

    I bracketed the shots at ISO 6 and 12, though I should have gone 3 and 6 or even lower perhaps. The...

    Re: Shooting Rollei IR WIth IR Unsafe Bellows

    Similar to me though I haven't used many sheets. I'm going to give it one more try I think. If it doesn't pan out I'll just use it in 120.

    Re: Intrepid cameras

    I will probably get an Intrepid 8x10 at some point to start. I'd like a Chamonix 8x10 but that's just too far out of my price range for now.

    I started on an Intrepid 4x5 MK2, which I still have....

    Shooting Rollei IR WIth IR Unsafe Bellows

    Been trying to dig up posts and articles on this again. I have quite a few Rollei IR sheets left and while I don't like it's thin base, I'm thinking of giving it another try in LF. I've had good...

    For what it's worth, I shot this a few days ago with longish exposures. Meter was 5s at f8. I used the Reciprocity App to calculate bellows and use FP4 and CHS ii to guess where CatLabs X may have...

  14. Re: My Omega Condensers have scratches - any negatives (hah) with using a diffuser?

    As an update, my new (for me) condensers came in and the results are MUCH MUCH better. My old set was actually in a pretty sketch state of affairs by comparison. They might do ok for 35mm and maybe...

  19. Re: My Omega Condensers have scratches - any negatives (hah) with using a diffuser?

    Indeed I used a filter with the Aristo. But it's blinding when I need to lift the head to check for dust (since the filter sits in the throat of the enlarger right above the lens). Likewise I can't...
