    Re: Any LF groups in Texas?

    We really need to get something going again. These meetups don't tend to last more than a few meetings, but I always enjoy the ones I have attended. I do understand that it's a lot of work to keep...
  2. Re: Looking to get into IR goggles to help me with my film handling

    The ATN monocle has been a game changer for me, but the harness is really fiddly and it's almost impossible to use with glasses.

    Re: Durst 450 cls power supply

    Ruilourosa,
    If you look in the link I posted above, I am using an industrial power supply for my L1200. If you're using a modern "switching" power supply, you must have the switch/relay on the load...

    That's a neat idea Eric, I like the idea of mounting the LED to the enlarger. Much less space than using a dedicated enlarger to do the pre-flash.

    Bill, that's really nice. I love the feeling of depth from the fog and the contrast between the trunk and the leaves. Really calm feeling but also kind of surreal. Great photo.

    Re: My LF-prints less crisp compared to my MF

    I agree with this assessment, and notice it especially with HP5+ and Tri-X in medium format. They appear very sharp compared to 4x5 HP5 on the same sized papers.
