Re: Film suppliers

Hi guys, I just noticed photoresouce.com.au also offers film for sale. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro Interestingly they are cheaper than Vanbar for a 25 pack of Ilford FP4+ 4x5" sheet film. Vanbar are $75.81 Inc. GST, whereas Photoresource are $69.00. Photoresource do not mention whet...

Re: 8x10 BW Film Recommendations and where to purchase?

I had a bit of a hmm moment when I read about Fomapan 4x5" film curling. I am on my third 4x5" box of Fomapan 400 with 50 sheets to a box, so I've processed at least 100 sheets. The first box and about 75% of the second box were processed in my Jobo using 2509 reels and rotary processing, ...

Re: My LF Tale of Woe and Joy

I have a tiny Schneider Angulon f/6.8 90 mm mounted to a Linhof Technika 10mm recessed board.

Plus a Fujinon f/5.6 210mm mounted onto a home made timber Technika size board.

Currently these are not being used.

You can borrow these if you wish.

Mick.

Re: Size of 12x16 trays please

Barry, my Ilford trays are slightly smaller, which is why I have them. Years ago in another darkroom my sink area was quite smaller, so I went for the minimum. My Ilford trays are 483mm by 410mm external measurements. The flat area in the Ilford trays is approximately 420mm by 350mm. The Ilford tray...

Re: Nuclear Physicist, Retired.

My experience with Fujinon lenses and their capability, especially when compared to the two big brands from Germany, has been that they are able to stand alongside the German lenses as reasonable competitors. Not equals, they are different, sometimes better, sometimes worse. I am talking of a time t...

Re: xray film a technical discussion and image sharing

Andrew, with regard to the bush scene and it being close to your home, sounds like you are living in an interesting area. We used to have a backyard that looked like that and after showing some childhood pictures to a city occupant some years ago, she remarked that it must have been wonderful to hav...

Re: xray film a technical discussion and image sharing

Barry, perhaps something can be organised in late Winter or early Spring, for a bit of a fiddle with orthochromatic film.

Just don't expect much, if any input from me, before July though, I basically won't have net access for a couple of months.

Re: xray film a technical discussion and image sharing

Andrew, I didn't know about the types of filtration suitable for lithographic orthochromatic films that allow one to get a more pictorial effect. As I have Green, Cyan and yellow filters in 67mm size for all of my Fujinon lenses, it will be very easy to have a go, all I need is to cut down some shee...

Re: xray film a technical discussion and image sharing

Well I'm interested, except I don't use X/Ray film, I do though, have almost 100 sheets of Ilford orthochromatic A3 sized sheet film that I used on my reprographic camera in another life last century. I have been meaning to cut some down to 4x5" and have a go with it in a pictorial sense. Howev...

Re: Nuclear Physicist, Retired.

Very high impact photograph, not sure about the inclusion of both hands though. I can understand one hand holding the pipe, with maybe the other stroking the beard if it is to be included, but, somehow, I think it would be far stronger with just one hand in the frame. Apart from that nitpicking, it ...
