    fall big one

    hi guys

    Did anyone go to the show. Get anything good [film accessories].

    I picked up 40 rolls of plus-x at $3 a roll. exp 2006 . I bought 20

    rolls awhile ago , it's the same batch .I didn't know if it would be

    good, I don't think it was refrigerated . I did dev. 2 rolls and it came

    out quite nice. Should I freeze or refrigerate or does it really matter

    at this point? . I also picked up a back and insert for my mamiya

    645 super., and a few books [aperture history of photography series]

    Only 5. I don't know how many are in the set, but it's a start.

    I thought I would write something since this forum seems to have

    died off. Oh I also picked up 8 old photographs at some garage sales.

    One other thing i bought a Seneca competitor view camera 5x7 the

    lens is a seneca duo dust proof. Really nice camera , 3 wood film holders

    with the name Victor H. Young written on them. I think it was made around

    1908 from what I read on the Seneca web site. I would also like to know more

    about Victor but I couldn't find anything on the net. I don't know if the camera

    even came from around the Hamilton area ? I bought this with the thought of

    doing wet plate. Have to get a darkroom set up first , hoping this winter.

    Does anybody do wet plate in this area? Maybe take on a student ? I would

    really like to give it a try before buying stuff that I don't need.

    Well Iv'e rambled on long enough .

    Later

    I sadly wasn't able to make the Fall Big one as I was in Queenston Heights, marching around Niagara-On-The-Lake for a recreation of Gen. Brock's funeral. Sounds like you got yourself a good haul there. Sadly all the wet plate photographers that I know are in teh states, closest one is out near Rochester, NY.

    I try to limit myself to the spring show, and mostly sell at it. Glad you found some great stuff. Oh I like Plus X. FP4 is close but Plus X was what I cut my medium speed teeth on.
    my real name, imagine that.

    I have about 12 boxes of darkroom equipment in my basement that is not getting used. Until it's gone, I can't justify going and buying more stuff.
