Thread: Broncolor Flash Pack Bonanza

    Re: Broncolor Flash Pack Bonanza

    It's 400 w/s so similar to my Impact 41's which are 375 w/s. Good for medium format and digital, plenty of light

    I've sold 16x20 B&W silver gelatin prints from 8x10 and 4x5 B&W portrait negatives. Not really interested in digital (I use it for testing lighting), happy with my Sinars. I have sold 30x40 color prints from Hasselblad negatives when I was doing analog weddings, it's all different. Never anything as big as 40x50. Anyway Good Luck to you whatever you are working on.

    I'm also interested in shooting dry plates and alternative process films. This requires a LOT of light. Dry plates are about ISO 1.5 LOL

    Re: Broncolor Flash Pack Bonanza

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    In business, I mainly did events. Quantum’s suited me just fine. And my Canon equipment worked for what I did.

    Just a side note, when I did my undergrad studies, I helped with photography, I didn’t own hardly any equipment back then. The college had a Graflex 4x5 camera that I used. For film it was Tri-X. They had a darkroom with an Omega D-2 that I used. I have a B-22 that I bought in the 1960’s and it suits me fine now.

    Omegas are great, I have two 4x5's, and a 5x7 in my darkroom. All of this is great at this point. In high school I owned a B22 and it's a great machine

    I bought the B-22 XL, little longer to raise up the head for the enlarger. I use the Chromega color head for contrast and use VC paper.

    Did color a long time ago, using a Unicolor drum. For me it was a PITA.

    I use Unicolor Print Drums to process 4x5 and 8x10 B&W film. Works great for decades. On a Unicolor Uniroller

    Didn’t use a roller. It has those ends when rolled by hand which move the chemicals around, end to end. I may still have it some where in my home. I also used a color analyzer to get the color filters down correctly.

    Truth be known, I use my iPhone a lot now. Does terrific panos! And, if I want to, send then to someone right away.

    Broncolor flahes too rich for my blood. Aren’t they from France?

    Nice to chat with you here.

    Looks like you have several enlargers! Me, I own just the B-22 XL!

    I never had my own darkroom until my wife said, “we’re getting the room finished with a large bathroom for my darkroom!” First ever! Before, I used a bathroom where the counter only held two trays with the fixer tray on the floor! Enlarger was on a card table with part of the table in the bath tub! Tub was empty, no water in it!
