  1. Re: Arista EDU and Foma 400 - Are you using them in spite of .... ??

    Foma 120 seem to particularly problematic - don’t know why.

    My personal experiences with Foma 200 (shot @ 100) has been fine in both 35mm and 4x5.
    If I notice problems, it can mostly be...

    Re: Must your image be technical perfect ?

    "some imperfections" :-)
    Just goes to show that "perfection" is really subjective. I love Sally Mann's work as well, although my preference is the Immediate Family work.
  4. Re: Arista EDU and Foma 400 - Are you using them in spite of .... ??

    Foma is a nice economic alternative - I am happy it is available. I think 400 is fine in LF when shot at 200. In 35mm not so much.
    I personally prefer Foma 200 rated 100 - it works well for me in...

    Re: Intrepid - Communication & Delivery

    Today, Intrepid's Instagram story said 1 week lead time on red and black 4X5 MK4.
    Same info is repeated on their website. 4X5 MK4 green or blue are still 6 weeks.
