  5. Great issue, Marc, So much research and development went into film in that day at a level that might not be as appreciated today with all the digital imaging we have now. That's why I still prefer film.
  6. Taffy?
  7. Thanks Marc!

    The lens list and pricing is an excellent resource. Several practical articles here - Keppler's, "Know your film", and Arthur Kramer on developing (which goes nicely with the one in your 1953 previous post).
  8. Always helpful and just fun to look over.

    I do a lot of scanning of text myself, and am fully aware of its cost in time and effort.
    Thanks for doing these posts.
