    Re: New to Large Format- what lens to get?

    I started and had only a 210 for over a year. For a new user especially in LF it's not about lots o lenses, like smaller formats. We're I you, I'd strongly consider a 90. Super wides are really hard...

    Re: Third party inks for Epson?

    If you think 1280 ink is expensive, try one of the pigment printers. As a dye printer, your images from the 1280 are not archival anyway. IMHO, the potential hassles from third party inks are simply...

  5. Re: Jobo choice: CPE-2 vs CPP-2 for B&W 4x5 shooter?

    I've had both the CPE and the CPA. The CPA (or CPP) is much more sturdy. But the deal breaker for most people, and the reason I sold my CPE, is to be able to use the Expert drum. The Jobo Expert drum...
