I'm using full-frame but anyway I get outstanding detail and sharpness with Delta 100 in Barry Thornton's 2-bath developer (which is close to Beutler). Not the best combo for atmosphere, however.

I was seduced by the brochure for the Leica M6. It took me about 20 years to actually buy one, and I don't regret it for a moment, but it really was the brochure that won me over. Clever really:...

My kids had a cheap Ludo board which said 'Ctart' on the Start square. I assumed it was printed by someone who got the Latin and Cyrillic alphabets muddled up. By that logic, the author's name...

I think one should note that these tests were on a camera, using the lenses backwards, so they aren't measuring quite what you would see on the enlarger baseboard. Still, this leapt out at me:...

My bet would be on something in between, around f/8, although we won't be able to appreciate that from anything you might post here.

Damn, I missed it, but thanks for this heads-up. I hadn't heard of Horvat before, but I love the atmosphere in those photos. Will definitely be seeking more of his work.

Logan, I've downloaded your images from here and inverted them to visualise what they look like as negatives. I'm struck by something odd. These are dark streaks on the negatives, right? But they...

That's a treasure trove, thanks for the link, and thanks retrospectively to Peter Adam.

I am stunned that both Brandt and Lartigue said they never looked at their photos or any photos. (e.g....

I remember that buying colour film at the best prices in the 1990s resulted in a parcel arriving from Jersey. Maybe that route is still favourable for the rest of the UK? Surprised if no-one is...

That's one I'd love to have. Fabulous images, fascinating subject. Plus, Towell wears really cool spectacles! Price of the re-issued book is still painful, though.

Not so, Neil, there really was a definite change. I daresay if anyone has old Ilford adverts, packaging or instructions kicking around, they'd be able to find an announcement about it.
