    Its been a few years since Ive been in a darkroom, but developing my medium format film is getting too expensive, so I bought a 5 reel Paterson Tank :shock: Its all a part of my evil plan ;) Im headed back to school next year and a lot of the course is BW photography.

    So expect to see a lot more of me round these here parts :mrgreen:

    Yayyyyy! Thrilled to have you in here, chica. :D Developing your own film is so much fun, and definitely not expensive compared to these labs.

    Chase :lmao:

    Im not sure the condition of the lens yet, but its only a 50mm, and I think I need an 80mm for medium format - or am I totally wrong :lol: Hubby to be is very pleased with me, Ive been dropping hints for a couple of weeks that I wanted to start doing darkroom work again. I had ordered some stuff from freestyle, and they oh so nicely sent me a catalog, and the prices of the enlargers in the catalog were making him feel a bit queasy :lol:

    Im so freakin happy! I still need a few other odds and ends, but $9, thats a steal!

    Even if you need some extras or bits and pieces, thats a hell of a start.

    I keep getting the darkroom bug nibbling at me lately....so tempting...

    Ive had my eye on enlargers for the last couple of days like a hawk. Pay attention to the shipping amount, Mine was like $29.99 for shipping, so I made out pretty good. Ive seen quite a few enlargers going for cheap, all you have to do is hit that place bid button :eyebrows: You know you wanna!
