Praktina

Yes I have handled one but never inclined to own one of my own. I am old enough to remember them being sold new about the same time as the Pentacon FM. They vaguely had a body shape like the original...

Thanks, yes it is nice and the 1st three I shot this morning of an old church have shown how much sharper it is than the 28/105. Another benefit I was not expecting is, being a newer design, edge...

Rod for their own back

I agree with what has said before and in my mind it is composed of many members of the Photrio Forum. The mess about with all sorts of witches brews and when it goes wrong they turn to the keyboard...

Filtration

Taking Ilford at their word, I have no reason to believe otherwise that upwards from Gd 4 there will be change of sensitivity, This was certainly the case with MG4. However as I said before, going...

Filters

I now always use the B&W enlarger with below the lens filters, but the grading of the paper is such I have never had to use a Gd3. My exposures are usually from 2 downwards. Once the exposure is set...

Colour Neg Film

Just what are Kodak and Fuji playing at? I have checked all the usual suppliers for Kodak and Fuji 200ISO film and there is simply none to be had.

Contrast

As I find it easier to print using separate filters rather dialling in the colour I think I may continue to use the M60. than I think I may have to modify my processing. I am thinking of reducing...

A few months ago, I was given an old Durst M60 B&W enlarger and I used it for the 1st time today. The contrast with the condensers was higher than I remembered and almost too much to handle....
