    Thanks to my wife I have just taken possession of my new addition an 8x10 Tachihara Triple extension as an anniversary gift.

    It is a pleasure to use and I will be developing my first set of negatives later today. It is a far cry from the poor old Seneca City View that finally gave up the ghost and literally fell apart on me.

    Having been woken up this morning at an unearthly hour thanks to Racoons on the roof and not being able to go back to sleep, I threw up a quick review of the camera on my web site. http://home.pacbell.net/mkirwan/8x10_tachihara_review.htm

    She's a beauty. Have fun with her. I enjoyed your observations on warm tone paper and developers
