  1. DIY Paper Roll Film Inserts for Sheet Holders

    by , 02-19-2012 at 09:57 AM
    My first on-topic blog post in a while

    After recently acquiring quite a lot of aerial roll film of 9.5", 5", and 70mm widths, I wondered how to shoot the stuff in my 11x14".

    You could of course make a modified back and holders etc, but a much simpler and less costly solution occurred to me: a simple paper sleeve. This is illustrated in the attached cellphone pictures. It works very well and costs almost nothing.

    What you ...

  2. The American Squalor

    by , 01-31-2012 at 08:35 AM
    Apologies for another somewhat off-topic blog post; this is on the subject of the modern American scholar and is reposted (with slight edits) from a newspaper article published here. The brief summary is that I advocate experiential, experimental learning, to buttress the American higher education against the online culture of download and parrot...

  3. Digital Tattoos

    by , 01-27-2012 at 05:24 PM
    The traditional tattoo underworld is about to enter the 21st Century: Digitat, a startup company based in New Jersey, is introducing a revolutionary new device that promises high resolution, pixel-perfect tattoos without the inconvenience of spending time in a tattoo parlor. This amazing new device also spares the customer embarrassment of baring a body part in front of a tattoo artist.

    In a small enclosure resembling an old-fashioned photo-booth, customers can select any of one ...

  4. The Art of War or Forum Discussion

    by , 01-22-2012 at 12:02 PM
    Few things annoy me as much as unsubstantiated argumentation. But one of those things is the predictable recurrence of an old argument, along with the vitriol that it stirs.

    Most recently, the tormented subject has been the future of Kodak. There is a case in which unknown facts could easily turn all arguments around, and then the forum combatants will find that they've lost friends over... nothing. And without the nuance of eye-to-eye discussion, a roomful of otherwise affable ...
  5. B&W Reversal Film Processor - The design and construction...

    by , 01-16-2012 at 09:58 PM
    I have a few moments to myself at work presently so thought now is the time for me to post about my desire or is it need for a B&W reversal processor. I was not sure where to post his in the forums (Darkroom Equipment, Camera Building...) So here is the Blog.

    Why build from scratch. Well,

    1. I am processing far too much B&W reversal in 35 and 16mm to keep going with the LOMO tank - 800 to 1200 ft annually. It was a bugger to learn to load but not bad now I have ...
