    Yeah, it might be. How long are you dipping the camera in the developer?

    Thanks to all who have posted. This is all very helpful.

    What I did with my SQ-A, since I can't seem to get my poorly designed manfrotto head to tilt more than 90 deg, is mount the tripod on the ceiling (or use a crane if shooting outdoors) and compose while laying on the floor on my back (a pillow is handy). Then, for printing, I took an angle grinder and a jack to my 6x6 neg carrier so I could rotate it 45 deg for printing. After getting the print mounted and hung (using a mirror, of course), I then have people view while laying on their side using the same aforementioned pillow and bingo! it looks great!

    Sometimes I find myself turning a 6x6 folder 90 degrees for a better composition.

    That might be because you are in Europe. I know when I'm back in Australia, I have to hold mine upside down or else the focus lens becomes the taking lens and misses part of the film.

    Do the tones change if you rotate it clockwise as opposed to anti-clockwise?

    See! Now, this is getting really confusing!

    I often hear people in Europe who quote paper and film sizes say the width first, then the height. In other words, where I might say a photograph is 8x10, a person from across the pond might say 10x8.

    When I'm talking about the frame of my Rolleiflex, should I call it a 6x6 or should I call it a 6x6?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    You laugh but I have developed film shot in my folders and am always perplexed when I find out I did exactly that. And didn't remember doing it.

    DUH!

    Do you point it to the right or the left?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    You should have broken it forwards.

    If you break it forward, can you see into the future?
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.
