  1. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    Probably the last remaining stock. None of the usual suspects in Canada have any left.
  2. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    Maybe Fuji just forgot that they made Provia 100F. It seems to be out of stock everywhere too.
  3. Re: Velvia 50 4x5 and 8x10 and Fujicolor 160NS Professional 120 discontinued

    Is there anything color left from Fuji in 4x5 or 8x10, or is this now the end of the road?

    Here's another option. I found some small clips used for sewing, and thought they might be good for clipping to the edges of large format sheet film. I tried it out today, and they work fine.

    I seem to recall you could use a hydrometer to check your fixer, but maybe I'm just confused. It might also be useful for gum bichromate.

    Re: 300mm Symmar-S transplant

    The lens aperture is the ratio of the lens focal length to the diaphragm diameter. The aperture scale will not be the same for a 300mm lens used in a shutter with aperture scale for a 360mm lens.

    Re: Meter & f-stop discrepancy

    The full f stop series are the integer powers of the square root of 2 or (√2)^X where X is an integer. Each integer represents a full stop.

    Thus:
    (√2)^1=1.414
    (√2)^2=2
