Hi Folks, Dwight Here,
I would like to use my 4x5 more, I used to enjoy the polaroid back and I really miss the process. (are there any Fuji films that work in the old polaroid sheet back?) I need a system to develop 4x5 film and maybe have it scanned as I don't have a real darkroom anymore. One of the stumbling points is that I don't have access to a bunch of old 4x5 boxes to send the film off in. Are there commercially available 4x5 shipping boxes? Or a place that sells used ones? Does anyone have a favorite lab that does a good job and maybe does good scans for less than a fortune. I can't even buy a roll of 35mm Tri-X for a 150 mile radius from where I live! Times have changed, but a Leica, Hasselblad, or Sinar still gives me a warm feeling. I don't have a 4x5 enlarger or a viable place to use it so I am open to any combination of steps to get a useable print. I forgot who said " I don't care if the print is on a bathmat as long it is a good print!)
Peace, Love, and Tri-X!
