Tuco, Steve,
Yes this is the one I am looking at just in case I need one day to develop 4x5
I just ordered it from freestyle along with 25 sheets of 6.5x9 Efke 100.
It will be interesting to be limited to 3 shots

Here is the oldie:






Cheers,

Luc
Sounds like you are on your way! I see a Sinar F in your future (or maybe a Chamonix!)...

I have the HP Combi tank. 1000ml just, barley, covers the top of 4x5 sheet. 1000ml is a convenient size since that is what my storage bottles are. So when I mix developer, I mix an extra 100ml of it since it is one shot and for the fixer I just go with the 1000ml. It's been working so far.
I had heard stories of leaky tanks and slow fill times. Are they exaggerated? How easy is it to do agitation?

My 120 tank uses 750ml for 4 sheets of 4x5, taco style, but the Unicolor drum does the same number of sheets in about 300ml of solution.

Steve I will ignore your post and would never consider a Chamonix 45N1 in Dark Walnut for $778 US
What lens board and lens are you using on yours?

Cheers,

Luc

That is a good idea Luc. A 045N2 in teak would be a much nicer addition to your collection. Seriously though, the N2 version does feature a more sophisticated rear standard setup.

I am using the Bromwell lens boards and have only two LF lenses in my quiver, a Caltar II-N 90/6.8 and a Caltar II-N 150/5.6 and I am very fond of both. The Bromwell boards are very nicely made of machined aluminum with a textured finish. I think I paid $39 for each of mine. The Caltars are rebranded Rodenstock and are equivalent to the N series lenses of the same focal length and max aperture. A 65mm would have been nice, but the cost was prohibitive and I am finding that the 90 works quite nicely for most of my wide angle work. The FOV is about the same as 30mm on 35mm film, but the movements allow for much greater flexibility for composition such that I really don't often feel the need for anything wider. On the longer end of things, a 210 or 250 might be sort of nice!

Strangely though, even though I have the Chamonix and don't spend enough time with it, I am really wanting to try a Hasselblad Arcbody that belongs to a friend of mine. I know it doesn't make a lot of sense, but the Arcbody is a pretty tidy package.

I could live with that.

That sounds interesting, expensive and difficult to find all in a small package

Cheers,

Ha! Ha! So true! That is why I want to try my friend's camera. For some reason she has not shot with it for about a decade. Digital is just too easy I guess!

Old railroad, shot yesterday with P67II and 90/2.8...










The film is Fuji Acros 100 developed in Fomadon R09 ~1:50. All of them are shot with my new tripod, and I must say I like it a lot. Looks like this...

Nice work, Makten. I rather like the tunnel shot.

Nice shots. I also have a Benro tripod but found it a little bit on the light side when shooting from the mountainside with some wind (a little bit heavy when carrying it up there!).
I finally received my Berlebach tripod dark walnut. It looks great but weight some more.

Cheers,

Luc

Thanks! Yes, the Benro is a bit too light, but I know that I only would leave a heavier tripod at home. It's sturdy enough if there's little or no wind, or if I hang my bag under it for added weight. My longest lens is the 105/2.4, so there's no trouble with shutter inertia or so.

By the way, I screwed up development pretty bad this time. I've got a new developing tank with a steel roll, and I just can't figure out how to load it properly. So the film ended up laying in double layers at one spot, so I lost two frames since the developer didn't reach the emulsion there.

The Berlebach will look great with the walnut Chamonix...

645D with the new Pentax 2.8/55mm prime.

Additional fill light from a cheap Boling set of battery powered strobes, triggered by a set of Cactus V5 transceivers.
