  1. 135 Componar ok for printing with classic lenses?

    If you are worried about the 135 (I don't see why), try your 203 lens, old time photographer's always used the taking lens for projecting the same image. Pat

    Old B&W 4x5 film processing

    If they are not heat fogged, and if they have not been keeped in a cool place, I think all your going to get is black film, but if you want to try, use PMK. Pat
