    How Should I Clean My Camera?

    Yes, the cream puff was great! At the Minnesota State Fair, they have some of the best. Thank you everyone for you replies. I will not worry about cleaning it with some water. Also, just a note, back in July, I was on the east coast and took the camera to the beach. Needless to say, sand...

    How Should I Clean My Camera?

    I took my camera to the State Fair and was just wearing it around my neck. Stupidly, I ate a cream puff and a big hunk of cream fell down on top of the camera. I wiped it off and used a cotton swap with a little water but I'm afraid the sugar from the cream will get into the nooks and crannies...

    Setting for Rolliflex Flash

    After posting this question I realized I have a flash meter. I connected it to the Rolleiflex and for my purposes, got an f/stop of 4 at 1/60 as well as 1/120. So, thank for the dialogue and the responses. Thank you! Now I just need subject matter to shoot.

    Setting for Rolliflex Flash

    I've been out of film photography for about a year now and how quickly we forget! I want to shoot some flash photos with my Rollieflex (see model below). Using a basic vivitar connected to the camera, what f-stop and shutter speed do you recommend for flash shots using 100 film? I think I was...

    Print Washer Design

    Thanks for your input (both of you). The primary reason I am looking into a good print washer is that I want to try printing on fiber paper. I've been using RC paper, which, according to what I've heard, requires much less rinsing. This appealed to me because I did not want to spend a lot of...

    Rolleiflex Exposure Chart on Back of Camera

    OK, yeah, it's probably a case where the meter can be added if desired. Or, as you say, it was cheaper to just go ahead and manufacture it with the table engraved on the door. When closely examining the camera again, I noticed something that I've never seen before. There is an inner ring on...

    Print Washer Design

    I'd like to acquire a nice print washer. I've noticed that I would have to pay a premium to get a design which will keep the rinse water completely separate. But how important is it to keep the rinse water completely separate if I'm the only one using the rinser?

    Rolleiflex Exposure Chart on Back of Camera

    So, are you saying that the chart is only useful if the particular model of Rolex has the built in meter? Why would they put a chart on cameras that don't have a built in meter that uses the 1-8 light value meter system?

    Rolleiflex Exposure Chart on Back of Camera

    Yes, that sounds logical. This Rollei most certainly does not have any sort of light meter. So, I'm still wondering where I'm supposed to get the numbers 1-8.

    Rolleiflex Exposure Chart on Back of Camera

    I've got a Rolleiflex E2. On the back of the camera is a chart that has a column showing F-stops. The column is on the left edge of the table and from the top to bottom shows 22, 16, 11, 8 etc. Across the top of the table are the numbers 1 through 8. In the body of the chart or table are...

    Freinds

    What is the point of having friends on the forum? Is it so you can send them messages about events or just to let them know you like them or what?

    Freinds

    I noticed in my Control Panel, there is a tab called "Friends." How is this used on the forum? How do I gain freinds?

    Full Frame?

    Oh, one more thing. Can anyone recommend a website or a photographer who has prints that show the film holder around the edge. I'm pretty sure that what I'm seeing are the flanges or whatever of a film holder, the metal or plastic part that wraps around the actual film when it is exposed...

    Nikon Capture Software

    Wow, this software is getting pretty bad reviews! Lots of negative. I installed it and just looked at it and it did not have a very pleasing interface. I tried some simple tasks and they did not seem to easy but then again, I have next to no experience working with any photo "digital darkroom"...

    Polaroid 55

    Helen, after checking out the link you provided, it appears that some people have managed to find this stuff and are actually still using it.

    Helen, Thanks for the input. Yeah, I guess it's a thing of the past now. J. F.

    Full Frame?

    OK, thanks everybody. Yeah, I'll have to work on the glass negative holder idea.

    Nikon Capture Software

    I'm wondering if Nikon Capture is a good program and how much it costs. I don't plan on doing a lot of "digital darkroom" work but, if I need to, I want to be somewhat familiar with something other than iPhoto (which is all I'm using right now). Since I'm using a Nikon D200, the CaptureNX...

    No, it was not digitized.
