  3. Re: Korona 12x20 compatibility with Lotus or Chamonix Film Holders?

    Going with a set of consistent holders and then fitting them to the camera is the way to go. I S&S holders that Richard Ritter set up the back to and they work great.
  4. Re: Paul Caponigro in Carmel, CA for lecture on February 8, 2020, 3-5 pm

    Wish I could be there. Won't be in town until Mid March. Next time I will make arrangements to coordinate special events like this one because they only happen occasionally. Thanks!

    Re: Contact printing light source?

    Agree. Plus you have the ability to use a cheap lens as exposure control and can integrate the multi grade filters even below the lens since it is just a contact print and not an optical enlargement....

    Re: Intrepid cameras

    I purchased a Mark II 8x10 Intrepid late last year. Took five + months to get but since I have other 8x10 cameras to use it was not that big a deal. It fits a role as a pack camera with a series of...
  7. Re: Any Clayton chemical customers here?

    Finding Kodak's unwillingness to sell 5 gallons of fixer concentrate, I have turned to Clayton fixer and it works fine. I will continue to use it without hesitation.
  8. Re: Durst CLS 1840 Color Enlarger Rewire Question

    Great to hear. When I had the enlarger on and ran it for a couple of minutes with the fan on it did not seem to get excessively hot. I was hoping what you confirmed with your response. Thanks!
  9. Re: Durst CLS 1840 Color Enlarger Rewire Question

    I will surely find some fire resistant fiberglass panels and install then for the same reason. I want to monitor the existing fan in the head and see how it dissipates heat as my Plan B is to install...

    Re: contact prints

    Yes it is nice to have a large vacuum frame and pump / UV printer but it is by no means necessary particularly with silver prints. I find that a 80 year old Century spring back contact frame (even...
  12. Re: Large Format Camera - Focusing architecture (in a hangar)

    Agree. I would think that a wide angle lens around 90mm on 4x5 would be a much better option as it relates to critical focus and coverage.

    I certainly will Luis. Contacting the electrician that helped me install the special plug receptacle. Since it was a while ago I want to make sure he made it a 220V connection. I am not about to just...

  17. Durst CLS 1840 Color Enlarger Rewire Question

    In a previous thread I mentioned that I recently acquired a Durst CLS 1840 enlarger that was modified by Durst USA to use a 220V 2,000 watt power unit and uses a 2,000 watt halogen bulb. Because of...
