When medium format isn't big enough: 4x5, 5x7, 9x12, 8x10 and even larger.

Good News/Bad News

Good news: The new 18x24cm holders arrived from Sweden!

Set up a test today. I'd made modifications to the loading end springs on the back, seems tight enough. Set up a closeup of the Konica, more than 1:1 on the 18x24 UM-MA. 20" of draw with a 5" lens. Guessed at reciprocity compensation, got in the ballpark.

So, the bad news: The holder seems to have a small leak on the slide end. Not sure what to do about that. Need to try the other side, and other holder. Hopefully the rest are better.

Bad news not so bad? The "leak" would seem to be wrong (Maddie set me straight on that). Light leaking in should show up as a bright spot, right? The shot is high-key, and there's a dark area along the edge. So, not a leak. Am I thinking about that right? I always get my dodging and burning confused. Still not sure the cause...

Yeah, I was wondering about that. Don't see obvious evidence of a leak here.

Congrats for the holders, they seem fine to me and no light leak.
Nice photo and setup ;)
