    Temple fairs in Beijing should still be under camera shop.Admire your memory.
    Right now many of the use of China's large camera, 4 x5 is known as the "stamp",5 x7 few, by many more people use 8 x10 and more cameras.
    There are lots of people have their own darkroom.There are many good and have the characteristics of the works.
    There are many Internet discussion groups.But also have a spontaneous large format photographer parties and exhibitions every year.
    Welcome more friends to understand China's large format photography.

    Welcome. Your translation program works fine, so it will apparently be easy to communicate. My wife studied in the University of Beijing for a year as an exchange student. There are many bi-lingual Mandarin/English speakers in this area, along with Cantonese/English. But as long as anyone can pronounce "Sinar", we all speak the same.

    What large format film do you use? I was using Shanghai black and white 4x5" film but was told that it is not currently available because the factory was in the process of moving to a new location.

    Are there other Chinese brands of large format black and white film that we may not know about?

    Are black and white film processing chemicals easily available to you or do you have to purchase the raw ingredients then mix your own?

    In your own work, what lenses do you like to work with?

    Please feel free to post some of your photographs here.

    Thank you.

    Re: Greetings from China

    Hi, I am from Hong Kong, joined this forum 10+ years ago, gave up LF for other things. Recently I cleaned up my dark room, threw away the chemicals (except a batch of Amidol) which I kept all these years and felt I might re-start sometime, so I join this forum again. I still keep the Durst L1200, and some accessories from the Durst L2501. Good to know LF is still alive in China. I used to have a friend in Shanghai who built LF wooden 10x12 cameras. I still have some 10x12 films from him. Good luck and have fun!
