I have loaded film into my Paterson tanks (both old and new styles) the day before developing the film and have never seen any evidence of light leak. This is true also when using Ilford and Kodak...

First of all - welcome Jerry.
The link you supplied is very interesting to me because I have a Vivitar enlarger using a halogen bulb of 19V / 80W that's absurdly expensive here in the U.K. The bulb...

I haven't used RPX100, but if it's Pan 100 under a different name then I'd say try it. I have been using Pan 100 and 400 for a couple of years and I like both of them.

Kowa Model E

I acquired this camera many years ago because I liked the idea of a 35mm SLR with flash synch on all speeds. The little spring that holds the rewind crank in the closed position was missing (so the...

Canon EXEE

I have had one of these cameras for years that I just don't use, and I'd like it to go to a person who will use it. The metering doesn't work, but everything else seems O.K. It's one of the Canons...

The problem is that a 50mm enlarging lens would be intended for smaller negatives such as 35mm and just wouldn't have the coverage for 6x7 cm negs.
I had thought in the past that it would be handy...

I would agree with Richard, I don't think you can beat Portra. I prefer the colour, although this is obviously a matter of personal taste, and I find the grain of the 400 remarkably fine. If you home...

I certainly agree that it makes a refreshing change to take out a folder. You can't hurry when using them, so it makes you think about the final result. Although, like most people, I commonly take a...
