    Thanks for coming guys! It was such a manic day I felt like a didn't get much chance to chat to people but the huge interested in demonstrations and people printing for the first time was well worth it. I really hope that the Sunny16 episode is edited...or maybe hearing the chat/thoughts of...

    Colour processing - C41 - chemicals

    That sounds like a good plan for mixing up C-41 for long term storage - going to give that a go next time. Any idea on if it works for E6 chems as well? Recently got the Tetenal 2.5L kit and I will no where near shoot enough slide film before it expires.

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

    @ChrisR I'm using the Jobo system - you can have an experiment with that when scanning to see if it works for you. I started out with trays for 4x5 but moved on to a Jobo setup after finding a good deal on ebay. Now I do all my dev with it - a larger investment but can be used for all film...

    Chroma - Lasercut Acrylic 4x5 Field Camera

    It takes me a while to 'bond' with my equipment, but it literally took a couple of hours before I felt comfortable with it. And that's all down to Steve's design... I'll waver my 'fee' in exchange for prototyping of an 8x10 Chroma errr.... Instax Wide back ;):):banana:

    Chroma - Lasercut Acrylic 4x5 Field Camera

    Think it is dropping on Thursday - and the GIF is definitely the best thing about it. (The writing, not the camera that is!!)

    Chroma - Lasercut Acrylic 4x5 Field Camera

    So, here it is, my first(ish) image taken with the Chroma. Hoping to get chance to head outdoors with it this week and do some more test shots, and hopefully not testing how it copes when dropped! What's your poison? by thedarkshed posted Sep 25, 2018 at 2:02 PM
