Nice 2D!

If Nathan declines on it, I could be tempted...

Re: Stevie Wright, Evie and the Widelux

I'm glad I'm not the only one to notice the Widelux in that video. Interesting place/moment to use one, I'd love to have seen how those images turned out.

Re: Supplies of chemicals in Australia?

I haven't used them for a while, but Ace Chemicals here in Adelaide carries (carried?) all that kind of thing. Phenidone is still listed on their web site: http://www.acechem.com.au/P.html

Exhibition - Australian Abstractions - Adelaide

I went to the opening of this exhibition on Saturday: http://www.ccp.sa.edu.au/lightgallery-exhibitions/

Definitely worth a visit. It's a mix of MF and LF work, but more importantly they're great images regardless of technology.

Re: Buying from China?

OK have found out the F! does have Graflok back. Oscar, PM me your address and Ill post a few IR sheets to you to try. I'm currently having problems sending PMs (they stay stuck in my "Outbox", can't work out how to budge them from there). Anyway, before I can shoot any IR film I first ne...

Re: Buying from China?

Can you confirm that the F1 has a GRAFLOK back on it. Also could I send you some Infra red film to test if the rumors about the bellows not being IR proof are correct. I'm not sure how a Graflok back is defined, but I can confirm that it takes the same film holders as my Crown Graphic, and also my ...

Re: Focus cloths

For what it's worth, I ended up buying a BTZS focus cloth. There's no argument that it's expensive but when you're struggling to see enough detail on the ground glass you really appreciate the complete blockout of ambient light as well as the convenience. Some of my LF gear is done very much on the ...

Re: Vanbar Sydney fading away?

I think they use a courier of some sort, not the postal service. (Not that I'm excusing their shipping pricing model!)

Re: Buying from China?

I am really glad to hear this. (And I might add that I am green with envy!) Did you get the normal one or the one with Asymetric tilt on the rear standard? It's the "F1" model, which has the asymmetric rear tilts. The camera appears to be well built and well designed, the only (minor) pro...

Re: Buying from China?

Just an update to this thread; I've now received my new Chamonix. The purchasing process was painless and fast. Now I'm going to spend the weekend working out all the different adjustements, it's quite a different beast from my Sinar F2 :)
