Re: Hi from NW London

Newbie question :? - What do you do with the exposed sheets in the dark slides when you want to take them to be developed? What do you pack them in to keep them light-tight? Cheers! Not sure if anyone answered this for you, but unload them and store them in an empty film box. Of course when you sta...

Re: For critique please

One other reason for a smaller/lower res version, is that it's always nice to see the whole picture without using the scrollbars ... and I only have a 17" monitor!

Re: Help: scanner fault?

Make sure you aren't covering the calibration area of the scanner glass at the end near to the hinge. Check the cutouts in the Epson holders to see where it is if you are not sure.

Re: Broken Epson V700?

Are you sure you aren't obscuring the area it uses to calibrate itself - near the hinge? If you're using the holders the wrong way around for example.

Re: Westonbirt anyone?

IIRC, the design intention was for 60ml of chemicals to process an 8x10 print, and I'd guess with that volume t...
