I keep my contact sheets in these A4 clear sleeves, then put them into Lever arch files.

Not ideal since they sag when placed upright, but a cheap and useful storage system.

Any sign of the colour temperature stamped on the crown of the bulb itself? Or any other identifiers?

Presumably it's a coated Opal lamp with a tungsten filament?

WTB: Jobo Expert 3006

Hi guys,

On the off-chance, does anyone have (or know of) a Jobo Expert 3006 for sale?

Ideally with the foot pump and sponge-on-a-stick, but not too worried about those.

Thanks,
Mike
