    And when was the last time you changed the oil in your camera?

    I have heard of her and the truck

    Very smart to make it from 8X10 paper, as it all fits in an 8X10 box

    This is when you want a roller processor
    Images vastly preferred

    not game trying to


    focus

    One interesting aspect is her picture costs. The current price for Ilford 8x10" RC paper is running at $1.85 AUD a sheet, multiply that by 84 sheets and you get $155.40 per shot just for paper alone. The chemistry is another reasonably expensive factor.

    Although one can do things completely manually, as in processing in 8x10" trays, a roller transport processor would be nice. Even with a roller transport processor there can be issues. I have a Durst Printo, it takes 2.5 litres of chemistry, which is not enough to process 84 sheets. For that amount of paper I would go through two baths. On the picture with grass in the foreground, there appears to be a density issue in a central section, this may be due to processing issues, it may not; but it was my first thought.

    Wonderful idea and very good execution of the idea.

    Thanks for the link.

    Mick.
