I heard the the original people who owned polariod were going to buy it back. This in mind they also had plans for the instant film market too.
BTW, his new book is available in october
Nah, I'm kind of reactionary. Not so much emotionally but in action. I saw no need for it. It's already gone. Could have sold it but then I would have had to clean it and store it and wait for money. That kind of thing. I did not deem it worth the effort. Already had an offer for film in trade. Oh well. That's what I get. No regrets, though. It is gone and the waste of the original purchase has passed.
You could sell it for good money here. Plenty of us like to use them. I have two combiplan tanks so I can process lots of film at once. (I'm not in the market for more though)
The best way to use combiplans, in my opinion, is with multiple tanks... at least two tanks. Then you just move the neg carrier from one tank into the next. So you prepare the two or three tanks with light son and just go from there. I never got along with a single tank, too messy.
Good job! Really nice images.
P.S. If you really want to keep things simple and streamlined, you might consider monobath. I think if I had such severely limited space, I'd definitely consider that route. That'd be really easy in a single combiplan tank.... or single tray, for that matter.
I have spent a lot of of hours in the darkroom over many years, but25000,thats a lot even for me,Richard
Thanks for posting here again for those of us who haven't gone to facebook.
Good to have you back. I have not figured out facebook yet.
Hi Keithwms mentions an interview on scale with Sarah Hasted, does anyone know where I could get my hands on a free download of this interview. thanks
"In an interview published in the October 2009 issue of Focus, Sarah Hasted makes several interesting points on this topic of print scale. She is the co-owner of the Hasted Hunt gallery which exhibits several extremely large colour prints."
25000 hours??? Galloping Grapenuts!!! That's like 12 years full time (with no vacations.)
I say the only times that are of any real importance to those like us are "exposure and development times" (and even they're not etched in stone.)
