Re: Test of Leica IIIf

I got similar striations on film from a Rolleiflex ("Old Standard") that happened because the film was being pulled over something other than the appropriate roller, apparently I misloaded it. Not saying you did that here, but IIIs can be a pain to load on a good day, so I wonder if something went a...

Re: Ilford plate R.10

I buy antique ones off eBay or at the yearly local antique photo show. This is hit and miss, of course, as they are in varying condition, and the standards of those days...weren't. That is, some have external dimensions that don't match modern standards (e.g., the ANSI/ISO standard for 4x5 film hold...

Re: Ilford plate R.10

In my case, I bought a set of six boxes of Tri-X plates, from the look of the packaging, I'd guess late 40s to early 50s. One box was already opened, and while I think they were not light-exposed, they were somewhat mildewed, and the fog was pretty out of control. But the other boxes were all sealed...

Re: Processing Kodadolor film

I have done it. It worked. I just used my standard: D76 1:1. The quality was not great, but the roll had been in somebody's (Texas) garage for a couple decades...

Re: Interesting 'developments' at 2019 PhotoPlus Expo

I have a Gibellini camera in my possession at the moment, an 11x14 on loan from a friend. It is very light, perhaps a bit too light for an 11x14, but I haven't had a chance to put it through its paces yet. It is attractive, though. Will post a photo when I get a chance to try it out.

Re: Why?

My opinion: comparing cameras to people as she did is not really very nice, in my opinion. Cameras are tools, and whether you use one or many makes little difference to them, other than the effects of usage or non-usage. People are not (certainly should not be) tools; they have agency and feelings a...
