    I asked Quinn about the deletion of the forum and at no point in the conversation did he say anything about keeping an archive of it. I kinda doubt he did.

    I do hope you didn't actually mean you were using hypo clear BEFORE fixing, as that would be pretty pointless.

  6. Re: Help choosing a "soft focus" lens, please.

    Based on my research, there's no way I am going to afford myself the 405mm. I prefer a lens that's barely going to cover the format anyway, so that's the 305 for my needs. It doesn't much matter to...

    New work from last night. 8x10 collodion glass negative. (Does collodion count as "film"?) The exposure was 8.5 minutes.

    If you like audio-books, then please consider getting Hold Still as an audio-book: Sally reads this herself, and it definitely adds depth and authenticity to the story.

    Re: Interested in 4 x 5

    Lets just say, "where there's a will, there's a way". But monorail cameras are not designed to be used as field cameras. You can do it with 4x5, but it will likely prove to be cumbersome and tedious.
