    I'm not sure what links were posted here but I also visit Fred Miranda's site and its forums. The problem is, it's VERY digital-oriented. I've tried to push film topics there only to have them turn into digital vs film wars from the multitudes of digital fanboys who are blindly obsessed with digital and spout off the 'disadvantages of film' which are more like marketing hype for digicams that they're parroting that has no base in reality. On the other hand, the few there who shoot film turn out some great shots and have solid knowledge. Even some of the digital-shooting pros there are at least very knowledgable and can offer tips on general photography.

    Besides that and others listed here (rangefinderforum, photo.net), I love Unblinking Eye. I don't even think it has forums but it does have articles on films, developers and alternative processes as well as their staff's recommendations for film/developer combos and techniques. Really, really cool stuff.

    Occasionally, I visit Luminous-Landscape.com but mainly to check out old articles based on film equipment. These days, he has been converted to a digicam cheerleader and is declaring even P&S digicams as superior.

    the only other...

    ...site I use is "globalphotosite" ( www.globalphotosite.info ).
    It's almost entirely 35mm or digital,but the comments added to photos tend to be friendly and constuctive-usually along the lines of "what I like about your photo is..."
    A common mistake people made when designing something completely foolproof was to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

    Computers are incredibly stupid,but they are capable of being incredibly stupid many millions of times a second.

    I am surpised no one has mentioned Michael and Paula's Azo forum:

    http://www.michaelandpaula.com/mp/index_skip.html

    If you want to see some interesting discussions about azo printing, that is the place to go. There are some very informative discussions about developing film that apply to other processes besides azo.

    I check in at the Azo forum occasionally, and there are a number of APUG types to be found there as well.

    You should take one for a spin. The old FJ was a great machine, but things have really moved on quite a bit. The R1 derived motor in the Fazer thou is just nuts. With the sit up and beg riding postion you can potter along if you wish, but twist that throttle, and wooooooooooooooooosh, I've never done so many unintended wheelies in my life! With an open can and an Ivans Jet kit, the engines even smoother and gives you another 10bhp. I think Yamaha's R1 type engines are best described as like ridding a bike fitted with a jet trubine. That engine really is trubine smooth and blah blah blah blah.......

    I stuck a full set of Nonfango hard luggage on mine, no probs carrying camera gear, I even stick a tri-pod in the top box when required. One of my biking buddies really trid to take the mickkey out of my 'handbags' as he called them, that was until the old Fazer out dragged and out handled his heavily modified Bandit 1200 streetfighter.

    Since I haven't been looking at photo.net that frequently lately, I've found the most efficient way to browse it is through the "friends" list (i.e., people whose posts I follow).

    Every once in a while it turns up something interesting like this thread where Bill Troop (of Anchell and Troop fame), Ron Mowrey (ex-Kodak chemical engineer and blowhard who I think may be floating around APUG under an alias lately), Ryuji Suzuki (dedicated internet photochemistry enthusiast who has written more than you would ever care to know about D-76), and Lowell Huff (proprietor of Clayton Chemicals) are arguing about fixer--

    http://www.photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-...?msg_id=00CEzQ

    It's a little arcane and a bit strident at times, but an interesting set of views. I thought it was particularly interesting to see Mowrey's endorsement of TF-4.
