  11. Thanks Marc, again. Must take a look at that Rondix 35. The review of 35mm focal plane cameras is great. I love the small cartoons in Camera 35.

    I cannot follow Lloyd Varden most of the time, but in this column I got completely lost.
  12. Julio - I think Lloyd Varden's column will make better sense when you see them grouped together so you can refer back to his previous writings on a subject. I plan to give his column its own page on my website.
  13. Thanks Marc. I've tried a couple of those little 35mm daylight development tanks, purely out of curiosity, and didn't become a convert. I'd much prefer to load a conventional tank in a dark bag!
  14. Great series of articles in this one. It's interesting that someone (don't remember who) once touted 127 as the "format of the future". Carefully handled and used in precision instruments like the baby Rollei, Yashica 44, etc it was capable of good results. Kodad's line of 127 Brownies helped keep the demand going for this film, but the Instamatics quickly proved more popular.
  15. Super Anscochrome Tungsten=type was the first color slide film I used, based on having read this article. I used it even though the Series VI filter holder, for the 85B filter, partially blocked the viewfinder of my new Olympus 35B.
  16. In 1958, maybe Ansco was a good choice. As it turned out, this is one of those films which doesn't last very well.
    A treasure trove, indeed
