    As we are now starting round seven here is a thread to post whatever now the sign-up is finished.

    I have PM'd my details to you. Any questions get back to me when you can.

    4 weeks to go before all prints need to be in for distribution to all. Very quiet out there in relation to this thread.

    I can say I know what I want to produce, but I am waiting on a set of lab scales to allow me to mix up my chemistry. They will arrive this weekend. 2 weeks ago my old scales decided that everything put onto it had a mass of 7.22g, or oz, or gr, ct and a fresh set of batteries made no difference. I'll be ready with my set in time, and to be sure my kids will not be getting anywhere near my prints when finished.

    I am feverishly processing film from holidays: 100 rolls of 120 (Mostly Fuji Neopan/Acros) and 98 sheets of 5x4" TXP... Aroundabout a 3rd of the way through, and the 'oooh, I'd like to print that!' ratio is unusually high, so I'm bound to have something!

    Marc!

    I made some prints on Tuesday that are currently flattening. I also did a test print of another image that I might use instead, depending on the timing.

    Well, I thought I was really going to struggle this round. Life has been rather hectic around this neck of the woods, but I have my 8 drying now. Hopefully they will be in Andrews hands by the end of the week.

    Cheers

    Yes, prey do tell!

    BTW, I am going to hang onto mine over the weekend. I want to tone, if I get the chance. Regardless, toned or not, they will be sent before the cutoff date

    All I'm saying is that the camera was announced a couple of months ago....

    The film was also announced a couple of months ago - although it's from a different source...

    Mine were all printed last week and have been flattening since. I think there is a small amount of spotting and trimming required, then they should be in the post on Friday.
