    Re: Rollei Infrared 400

    I'll second that. It's like loading fairy dust. Easy to double load; you know if you can feel the film firmly that you've grabbed two sheets - and they will slide into your holders. But I love the...

    Re: Imaging-themed source for business cards

    Even an amateur will find a business card helpful when seeking permission to shoot somewhere.

    As for information - never a street address, that's like saying "come steal my expensive stuff."

    Well, it depends a lot on exactly which filter you use and the environment in which you shoot. Also, some of us have different metering habits. Try a test roll with bracketing and then you will know...

    Re: Rollei Infrared 400

    I use the Cokin X-Pro series filter. It's listed as a X007 equivalent to an 89B Wratten. It comes either as a 170x130mm rectangle or 120mm circle. Either way it slides into a Cokin X-series holder....

    Re: Dark Streaks on RA4

    I think the stop bath is essential. In my experience water doesn't cut off the development sharply enough and lets the print keep developing until its kind of brownish.

    Re: Dark Streaks on RA4

    I used to get these if a dribble of water ran down the sheet before I poured in the chemistry. It meant I hadn't dried out the drum well enough from the previous sheet. Maybe this is your case?
