    Re: Can you identify this camera?

    It appears to be one of the display "cameras" that came out of India at least a decade ago. Purely decorative.

    Re: The new Tri-X 8x10 film

    I thought the changes in Tri-X in 2007 were the result of Kodak erecting a new building for a new coating line. I have a memory that the new system introduced enough changes to require about a...
  3. Re: Very neat artice by the New Yorker on Thomas Joshua Cooper

    In response to Peter Collins' comments, I think it safe to say that some editor did in fact read the article before publication. But I will bet it passed muster based on the author's writing style,...
  4. Re: Lightest & Most Compact Tripod for Wista 45SP that is Also Reasonably Priced?

    My Tiltall is by Leitz, but, as I recall, the original manufacturer was Marchioni--and that probably is not the correct spelling.

    Re: Redwood grid for Darkroom sink.

    In 1998, having no carpentry skills, I had a sink (8 feet long) built out of plywood. The bottom of the sink sloped down to one corner where the drain was located. On each of the long sides (the...

    Re: () Robert Frank, dies at 94

    I have wondered if Frank's "The Americans" influenced the development of the "New Topographics" that is so dominant in photography in Academia.

    I thought Quality Light Metric had closed down. Or has George just stopped working on Weston light meters because of the lack of repair parts?

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Bryan,

    I like the images of Yellow Branch Falls. Also, it occurred to me that if the same shot were taken after the leaves had fallen the water would look like icicles.
