A lot of people are missing a chance to communicate better here than on the sites with lots of traffic. Oh well, that's their loss.

It has been a very long time since I've sent film out for processing. Then it was Kocachrome to Kodak labs. Towards the end of the Kodachrome era quality seemed to be slipping, but I don't remember...

I have an Epson V700 which is fine for scanning 4x5 negatives, but inadequate for 35mm negatives. Probably scanning medium format on it would not be good for quality printing, but likely fine for...

I can't give any information on starting up your kind of business in your location, but it sounds risky. A lot of research is advised. The future of film is unclear. Many new businesses fail within a...

I thought I was a film hog when a friend and I returned from three weeks in the Great American West with 80 rolls of 35mm B&W to develop and maybe a few dozen rolls of Kodachrome to send to the Great...

Have you introduced your youngest to the joys of the darkroom? By now that should be something unique for her age group. Some younger people like to blend in, others prefer to stand out. Traditional...

Somewhere I should have part of a long roll of Tech Pan. I'm saving it for perhaps a few technical uses, not just picture making. From time to time somewhat similar films appear overseas, but I...

I never liked sending any printing job to outsiders, and haven't done that in many years. However, digital images are an entirely different matter. Friday night I took about 200 shots at a basketball...

Some of the battery/capacitor flash bulb guns use a battery with a higher voltage than is safe for many (or perhaps all) digital cameras. I don't have time to check the specs on the Wein Safe-Sync...

I've always liked 4x5 film. It is big enough to record fine detail. Equipment is plentiful. If you go for analog printing, 4x5 enlargers should be fairly plentiful and not too huge. The film is a lot...

The view camera I've most used was a Burke & James flatbed 5x7, often with a 4x5 back. It is very basic, but does everything a view camera should do. It uses the popular 4" square lens board of its...

LF will be simple if Bethe is available to teach you. Her Chamonix has a few peculiarities that I don't like and would keep me from using that type. However, they are popular, so using them can't be...

Bethe uses a light weight 4x5 Chamonix from China, and does some good work with it. Over several decades I've accumulated a variety of 4x5 and 5x7 cameras. Some decent older ones can be bought used...

I agree that 6x7 or 6x9 is a better format than the smaller ones. 6x9 is a familiar ratio to us who were raised on 35mm. One may crop a little from the ends to fit many frames or mats, but we have...

Bethe uses a 4x5. If you lived close by, I could loan you a 4x5. Development can be done in a perfectly dark darkroom in trays. A few scanners do a good enough job of scanning 4x5 negatives to...

I have a few old 120 film cameras, but rarely use them. A 6x7 or 6x9 camera is just halfway between 35mm and 4x5, and would be logical. 6x4.5 has too little advantage over the more flexible 35mm...
