    I had some super old expired chrome (64T), used it in a plastic camera and cross proceeded it at the drug strore. Kinda suits this shot....prob not everyone's cup'a tea, but I couldn't just throw the film out could I?

    Central Camera was the high point of my recent visit to the Windy City. Great folks, great place.

    I was just there on Monday, got great customer service, including a 2nd opinion on my C-33's focusing problem, and came away with several polarizing filters for different lenses. Old Ben Chin (he's been there since it opened in 1899) convinced me that my Yankee-style tank would cause uneven development and tried to sell me a Jobo unit, without the lift, for $250. But what did interest me was a Jobo 8x10 tank with a holder for 12 4x5 sheets and a powered roller unit. It's a good thing I resisted because last night I found that I already own a Uniroller. So today I called them up and the tank is now on its way.

    It was just great to wander through and see all the different equipment, film, papers and chemicals, and to have intelligent conversation with knowledgeable people.

    I've shopped at Helix and the Calumets, but never at Central. When my wife and I next visit our daughters at that school in Hyde Park, we're taking a field trip. I cherish my first visit to any photography store. It's great to have another such moment to anticipate!
    Thanks for the post.
    If you call it a "prime lens" because it's a fixed-focal length (i.e. not a zoom lens), then as Inigo Montoya said so eloquently, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

    I love their house-brand FB Matte paper. It works very well with Caffenol processing. (their glossy paper, not so much) When I bought some last year, they told me it was Czech, but "not Foma". (their emphasis) I'm going to pick up a few more packs when I visit after New Years.
