  1. Re: Ilford Multigrade 500HLE For 8x10 Enlarger Needs Work

    I sent in a high illumination unit (two 300 watt bulbs in the head) to get repaired.
  2. Re: Ilford Multigrade 500HLE For 8x10 Enlarger Needs Work

    I acknowledge they are different systems that are incompatible. All I am saying is that if you are an electrical engineer intimately familiar with the standard 500 multi grade platform, my money is...
  3. Re: Ilford Multigrade 500HLE For 8x10 Enlarger Needs Work

    I can't imagine Ilford would deviate from the 500 multi grade platform to upgrade to an 8x10 head version. My money is on the identical circuitry just doubled up for the beefier version. Apogeebe is...
  4. Re: Ilford Multigrade 500HLE For 8x10 Enlarger Needs Work

    As the previous respondent said, opening the door kills the power to the bulbs. If the door is closed and neither light come on I would replace one of the bulbs and give that a try. If all else fails...
  5. Re: 8x10 Photography Compared to 4x5 Photography?

    I find the 8x10 format to be the perfect image photographic capture tool for a number of ancillary reasons. First I have to qualify that 8x10 field work does not have to fall victim to less depth of...
  6. Re: Gas Burst Chemistry Oxidation Questions

    As should be the case, factual first hand personal experience as it directly relates to processing results is the only thing that matters. My goodness how far we have come. I can very effectively do...
  7. Re: Gas Burst Chemistry Oxidation Questions

    I would also like to see that assertion properly defended. Gas burst was the process standard for decades for professionals particularly with C41 and E6 processing. I hope you are not talking about...

    Re: Bellows from ecbuyonline2008???

    My experience is they (Camera Bellows) will do everything possible to accommodate your specific needs. The synthetic bellows material is what KB Canham uses on their 5x7 metal camera. I asked Camera...

    Re: Bellows from ecbuyonline2008???

    Second this course of action. At the end of the day this is quite a simplistic set of business variables in play. The cost of bellows is the price of materials and labor. People that make bellows at...

    Re: Tray developing problem - 8x10

    So you can safely conclude that you do not have a bellows light leak and your film holder to camera interface is also not light compromised. A step in the right direction.

    Re: Tray developing problem - 8x10

    Agree with Kevin. In an 11x14 tray the next tray developing process you conduct add an unexposed sheet of film to the mix to either confirm or take the light leak question out of play. I would limit...
  16. Re: Unsharp Masking…Would I/Could I/Should I?

    Why go down a rabbit hole if you don't need to John. At this stage of the proceedings the last thing you need is unnecessary "dilution". Expose and process your film optimally and you do not need to...

    The adequate support for your Wisner 12x20 is a Majestic 6x7" base or a Ries 250 6x6" tripod head base with a 3/8" make up screw on improved tripod legs to properly support this ULF camera in the...

    Re: Show off your Large Format camera!

    What format? 14x17? 11x14? I had a Wisner 11x14 Technical Field that converted to 12x20 / 8x20. Heavy sucker. Changed it out to a Canham 8x20 wood and a V11 Deardorff.
