Episode 205 - November 15, 2018
Topics include: Pin Blad Pin Hole Adapter, Eliminating Water Spots on Film, Yodica Creative Films, Four Essential Filters for BW Photography and More.
I realize there are other threads and forums for CLA / repair recommendations but if you could, please concisely list your recommendations below.
The goal is to gather as much info as possible (in one spot) so that I can create a go-to blog on the main FPP site.
This idea was suggested by FPP listener Paul R Wagner.
Thanks and Best wishes!
Hi all - we talk about it (a lot) on podcast 199, but just in case you miss it the Kickstarter for Obscura, the new community darkroom opening in NJ is now live! Take a look!
If you choose the "name an enlarger" level of support, I will be extremely disappointed if no one chooses Enlargery McEnlargerface...
This is probably a stupid question,
but if I'm using a flash with Tri-X, and I'm shooting the film at ISO 200 but developing it for 800 . . .
What ISO distance do I set the flash for? (200? 400? 800?)
(I'm using an old manual flash on a rangefinder camera with a sync cable.)
Thought I might start a thread so we can talk about things we just purchased.
I just picked up a Nikon F70 with a stack of filters, a bag and for some reason a Shneider-Kreuznach enlarger lens. All this for $19(au)! Shame it didn't come with a lens for the Nikon though.
Also picked up an 8mm film p[projector for $12. Shame it doesn't work, and I'm hoping it's just...
I was hoping you might help me find out a little more about a recent thrift store find of mine.
I bought an M42-threaded wide-angle lens (35mm focal length) that says "Aremac" (camera spelled backwards) and "Made in Korea".
It looks like fairly sturdy 1970s - 1980s era lens of mostly metal construction. f stops from 2.8 to 22.
I don't expect it to be a sup...
I'm curious to hear what folks think about the announced changes for Flickr. I'm seeing some lively discussions on FB. Personally I do not have a problem with it. Unlimited storage can't be free forever. I enjoy Flickr being a personal gallery for my work. I have connected with photographers around the world here in Flickr. And, getting back into film this year, I find Fli...
Can any FPP peeps point me in the right direction for figuring out this Leica's model number. I've checked the Leica serial number database and it was made sometime in the early 1940's (40, 41 or 42).
That's as far as I've gotten.
I found it at an auction (it's not mine....yet) and it's the first Leica I've ever held in my hands!
Hi FPP gang. I'm hoping that someone in our gang can help me figure out my kowa six's strange shutter firing behavior.
When loaded with film (or even the backing paper), the camera shutter will not fire. When the camera is empty, or the back "door" is left unlocked, the shutter will fire (?????).
I've checked the pressure plate, which is designed to be removed and ...

Topics on the show include a brief history of Kodak Ektachrome, Film Ferrania Update, Great Big Story, and so much more!
I recently purchased an RB67, and upgraded my tripod to take the extra weight. I bought one of the fancy quick-release tripod plates with the two little pins that fit into the bottom of the camera. It came with a 1/4" screw that was too small to fit in my camera. After some quick research, I ordered a 3/8" - 1/4" bushing, which was still way to small...
Sam Sherman and Mark O'Brien mentioned the Kodak Pony in the interview series. There were the Pony 828, Pony 135, Pony 135 model B and the Pony 135 model C. They were all pretty much alike, The model C did away with the collapsing lens and interestingly enough has a lens made with thorium glass. It will trigger a geiger counter. The model C is probably the best versio...
I have been processing my color negative film either 35 mm or 120 mm film with the FPP chemistry, however sometimes on my 120 rolls I get these vertical bands that start near the edges of the film but are very regularly spaced, but do not continue all the way across the frame. It is usually noticable in large smooth color areas. I am agitating my color film as per the colo...
