    Re: 51 Gallons Distilled

    One of the nice things about living in the N.W. Oregon, we have excellent water. I've never had to worry about minerals, etc., in the water.
  2. Re: Color separation negatives - CMYK no digital?

    I'm not so sure about this, if one is relying on an Epson driver. These drivers require an RGB input, which it then converts to CMYK output. So, one might create a CMYK file in Photoshop. But when...

    Re: Progress on Film Drying Cabinet

    Decades ago, I made my own film drying cabinet. I hang the film (35mm, MF, 4x5, 8x10) and let it dry overnight.

    In my view, including a fan is just opening a can of worms. (An analogy that...

    I purchase all that I can from Ilford, just out of principle. If ever under Ilford goes, dire circumstances will black and white photographers face. I stick with, and get good results from, HP5+.

    Re: Anyone else printing smaller?

    I typically print medium format and 4x5 on 8x10 paper; I like the tones I can get with a smaller print. I can print up to 16x20 and plan to enlarge an 8x10 negative to a 16x20 this coming year. I...

    Here's what I would do for best results. It's kind of expensive, though.

    I'd skip the Kodak IT8 target which has a minimal number of color patches and purchase a Hutchcolor (HTC) target. They...

    Re: Wide angle lenses for 8x10

    I like the balance that I've struck between 4x5 and 8x10. (Or course, I would.)

    I like 8x10 for their contact prints, and for the quality in images I can achieve with a modestly enlarged 8x10...

    I don't think so.

    Re: Trying Out An Arca D4 Tripod Head

    That's a nice setup.

    Out of curiosity, why the leveler, given that the D4 rotates on the top and the bottom? I'm thinking that the D4 itself levels the rotating adapter at the top?

    The one essential for me is geared rise/fall on at least one of the front or rear standards. So much more convenient. After that, manual swings or tilt is fine.

    It was a little tough removing mine; I had to apply quite a bit of leverage But as opposed to Loctite, the screw and threaded hole were coated with a lubricant. So, it wasn't a problem.

    Thanks for your post. It never occurred to me that the narrower clamp was meant for rails, versus the optical bench. As it turns out, I have Type I rails, so it wouldn't work for me....

    Sorry; I misread "level" in your post to be leveler. (In fact, RRS sells a leveler as well.)

    Your new clamp should easily attach to the top of the D4. One uses the correctly sized Allen...

    Re: Trying Out An Arca D4 Tripod Head

    By my way of thinking, you wouldn't need a leveling base. Because it rotates both on the bottom and on the top, the two geared tilts on the D4 themselves become the leveler. But, I'm not sure how...
