    Re: Intrepid Enlarger Attachment

    I just received my enlarger attachment and I am looking forward to getting the best out of it that I can. I love my Intrepid 4x5 and am excited that I can use it in a similar way to how many...
  2. Re: Stearman Press 810 & Temperature Film Reticulation

    So far the only problems I've noted with my SP810 is with Harman Direct Positive Paper and that was caused by failing to pre-wet in the beginning.

  3. Re: Comparing Currently In-production 4X5 Field Cameras

    For 4x5 I picked up an Intrepid from backing the Kickstarter back in 2015 and I have been busy trying to wear it out for the past three or so years. So far it has held up exceptionally well. This is...
  4. Re: Continuous Processing with Dektol or PolyMax RT???

    Thanks.

    I have always used Dektol and, beyond my own screwups, never had any problem. When I read the chart I was a bit confused so I thought I would ask.

  5. Continuous Processing with Dektol or PolyMax RT???

    I have a bit of an odd question.

    I develop prints in Jobo 2800 tanks using 2 minutes of continuous rotation. I am currently using Dektol and it is getting close to time that I get some more.

    Re: SP-445 - What Went Wrong

    I prefer tray processing but it just isn't always possible or practical to do it.

    Thus the need for some type of daylight processing system and the SP-445 is a nice way to do it.

    Interesting gadget.

    I would certainly buy one but I need to use my Jobo for a few more years to make it worth what I originally paid for it.
