  1. Re: Sam Hiser is still working on the New55 technology

    Good call. Don't toss it out. You will need it :)
  2. Re: Sam Hiser is still working on the New55 technology

    The goal is indeed to get a good product that can be upscaled with a consistent quality. Unlike the first runs of New55. The new improvements are steps toward a more stable product. :-)
  3. Re: Sam Hiser is still working on the New55 technology

    Alive and kicking i would say!

    Going large once again

    So the last couple of weeks I have been setting up my darkroom to go big once again. I just kept putting it of for some reason. However today i tried my biggest print to date. Not that i am planning...

    Sometimes I shoot nudes and i would not have a problem posing nude. I did a series of nude self portrait after my stomach surgery.

    Do you have contact with Sam? I think it is better to discuss this sort of things with him instead of me :) I'll bet al help is appreciated.
  11. Re: Sam Hiser is still working on the New55 technology

    Market input was given the years New55 was available. And I think you can safely assume he has got his network already.

    I can see your point. However with such smal markets for this kind of film a company just doesn't have the luxury of developing a complete and flawles product. That is too expensive and too time...

    Nah why buy old stuff if you can help revive a great film type to last us for years to come?

    Re: Printing large

    Because you keep rolling the paper it will get new developper. So the developping is failry even if done good. That is why I have enough testing paper to get that right. :-)

    I figured the enlarger issue out. I made some test prints with the head in the normal position. And I made a video and a blog about it:

  21. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    Amazing deal. To bad shipping is so expensive to the Netherlands. In the end the costs will be more then when I buy a pack of 18x24cm film in the Netherlands. Even when buying three packs of film.

    Re: Fixed focus 4x5 camera

    I have decided on the focal distance. I think it is pretty good but I want to be sure. So a photo and a 100% crop. Is it good or can it be better?
