    New Old Film Challenge #99 – ‘CAPITAL!’ Entries

    I've skated on that pond in winter but in front of the new building. Recognised it straight away before reading the description! Great to see the old city hall.

    Sold both Contax bodies a while ago now. This was one of the last times I used it properly. Venice Beach, California. Kodak Ektar 100 - Contax 645 - 80mm.

    Haven't shared anything here for a while, or uploaded to Flickr for that matter. I miss my Hasselblad. I love the 67ii, but it doesn't do it for me as much as the Hassy did. Considering switching back and I would have a little cash to spare too, now I have seen what good 67ii's go for. Can't...

    Project Darkroom has begun

    Will take a look at some books when I am ready to go. Put the worktop up yesterday which has plenty room for three trays so I don't NEED a dedicated sink, just one to dump chemicals down and wash prints. Might even get a print washer for this so I can just use a small, old porcelain sink I have...

    I saw that yesterday but no, nowhere near London and nothing to fit it in.

    Thanks for the info, John. It's only just over an hours drive for me so one day soon I will head over.

    Trip to Iceland , what gear?

    Hello. Ha. Thanks for the tag, Trevor but honestly, I don't think someone in Rob's position or most shooters on this forum would share my thoughts, probably trying to choose as much of the focal range as possible whilst keeping gear as light as possible, where my approach was a single focal...

    Perfect, thanks chaps and @Peter B for the link. Will get a couple ordered.

    And.....back! Went to Chester to collect... An almost brand new LPL 7700 pro in box. The only thing I can see that isn't there is the bulb so will need to source one of those. Are they simply just a normal, holagoen bulb as described on the leaflet that's in there? Several safe lamps, although...

    Going picking this enlarger and accessories up today. All unused it seems. Only problem is, there's no timer but I am sure I can get one eventually.

    Medium format folders?

    Xpan, though. Buy an Xpan. I honestly don't think I could part with mine.

    I love these. SO much atmosphere. I really need to visit Snowdonia and it isn't that far!

    Ah vey cool. Thanks. I might give colour a go then. Might try and find a worktop this weekend.

    Well, every day is a school day! I never knew of such filters. Thank you!

    I haven't ruled it out. Most of my photography is colour....it's just printing looks a tricky beast, with colour matching and temperature.

    Thanks chaps. It comes with a LOAD of stuff so I am gonna go for it, even if it's more than I wanted to spend. Going to pick it up this weekend. Just need to install a worktop now and I can actually print.....still no sink installed though.

    Very kind and thank you for the info. Been looking today at an LPL7700. Any opinions? Comes with loads of stuff including easel, safe light and a tonne of paper!

    The postman just came with a very generous package from @joxby . Thank you very much! Put them in my new darkroom which is slowly taking shape, although I am currently trying to find a cheap worktop locally as well as an enlarger that can go up to 6x7!

    There's already plenty here. I have been selling some so I am still on a NET loss.

    OFFICIAL I HAVE A NEW (FILM RELATED) TOY THREAD!!

    Finally got a film bargain after always wondering how people did it. Being a geek and knowing how much things seem to sell for has finally paid off. I often visit the little antique type places with my girlfriend and see loads of cameras which either don't iterate me or are pretty worthless...

    Doesn't need to be un-plumbed. There is currently a toilet in the room that someone fitted previously so there is waste and a water supply. I am going to re-route the pipe to a tap instead of to the cistern. Should be pretty straight forward to be honest. It's just the actual sink and what kind...

    Oh I see. Erm, I shall send you a PM shortly then. Many thanks. :) Yeah I know. I will see what deals come up for enlargers I guess. First couple of things I need to sort now are a sink of some sort, whether that's a dedicated proper dark room sink or just somewhere to dump chemicals and...

    Cool beans. Let me get a tap and sink sorted and all my worktops in then perhaps we can talk.

    Been looking today but haven’t decided on a make. I’ve used Durst before and preferred that to another one in the same darkroom. I’d like to print up to 67 ideally. Prints up to 12” on the longest side I think. Or the paper will be that big so slightly smaller......oh wait, the digital people...

    If someone breaks into my house, I’m sure an enlarger is the least of my worries. Thanks, Fraser. I just honestly can’t see myself ever wanting to print colour in the darkroom despite me shooting mostly colour negative. Just seems very tricky to get the colour balance right.

    Erm.....B&W enlarger, sink, developing trays & tongs, timer, safelight, grain focus thingy. That's the essentials off the top of my head. In the future maybe a lightbox (because I like them).

    Project Darkroom has begun

    All the hardware, pretty much. Thanks. I won't need anything to heat chemicals I don't think as I will probably keeping it to just B&W, at least for now. My scanning is the biggest weak point so I will leave colour to the labs. Thanks, and yours! Ah that's good to know. Putting in a tap is...

    Project Darkroom has begun

    Finally, after months of procrastinating, I’ve finally cleared my outbuilding (attached to the house), blacked out the windows, sealed the door and fitted a little worktop for an enlarger. Will take a while as I’ll have to add power and re-route the water feed to a tap, add a sink and another...

    Emulsive.org Analogue Secret Santa 2017

    First year for me and I received a great package from Ohio. A box of 120 Ektar (yes, a pro pack of 5 rolls), a 35mm roll of ultra max, a book on Retro Cameras, a gorillapod, some local chocolate covered potato chips and three dark room prints from my Santa!
