    She's a lovely camera, Jim! Walnut is such a rich and beautiful wood. And there's a satisfaction in photographing with your own creation.

    Still... have you considered painting it a nice Burke & James grey?

    Forget these cheeseball money offers. Silver shmilver. I'll trade you the whole town of Tonopah for it. Think of it, you could own your own desert town. You could be King. I'm King now but I'll step down of course.

    Jim, "One day I shall be King" I like that. I can see it now the Emperor arrives. No money, no gas, no food but a s--- load of film and cameras. Do I get the gifts from the little green men to? The key to the lens mine? I know I'm pushing my luck but why not go for the gusto!
    Mark, Could you imagine. I get home from work and one of my neighbors has broken into my apartment with a can of gray spray paint and has had their way with both the 8x20 and the 11x14!!!! I later find out he is an ex-employee of B&J! Nightmares!!!
    Shawn, Jim has given me some ideas on using paper negs. Hope to post something tomorrow night. Thanks.

    Jim

    Jim, I just played with that efke direct positive paper, you might have a look. It is quite thin, what I tried. Not too curly, and reasonably smooth surface. I guess waht I got could be called semimatte. Develops well in standard chems but definitely needs a red safelight. Haven't checked preflashing effect and toning and all that, but it might be a good direct capture paper for you ULFers. Controlling the contrats is still a bit of a mystery to me so far, one plays with exposure versus developing, of course.

    Keith I had read about that paper and it is something to try in the future. Funds are a real challenge right now as some work I was counting on got put off till next month and has left me with a serious cash flow problem. Let me know your results please. By the way the camera came in at 16 lbs.
