    Adapter

    I looked into this a few months ago. Although an initial google search may give many hits, some of the links will be for adaptors to Nikon Z, or Nikon 1, or for going the other way, Nikon lens to OM. I did read somewhere a description of why it is difficult to produce a OM -> Nikon F adaptor...

    Loading 120 film onto a Paterson spiral - any tips?

    Large Format photography group - From "zero to hero!"

    Large Format photography group - From "zero to hero!"

    I used the MOD54 briefly and had chunks missing out of the emulsion from the arms. It was a "seconds" MOD54 insert so I don't know if the problem would occur with a "perfect" example. I changed to the SP-445 and haven't had any problems with it, except some leakage - I put duct tape over the lid...

    Coronavirus and film photography
