changing bag staticgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
My changing bag arrived and it seems very staticy. I thought of using a dryer sheet on it, but then thought maybe not a good idea. Anyone with some advice. I realize the changing tent was a much better idea, but had to sacrifice somewhere. Thanks ahead of time for your help.

Julie, Your changing bag will be OK for the field, but, since you have a darkroom "on the way" so to speak, and will have to lightproof it well enough for film developing anyway, you can load most of your holders there. I usually load on the baseboard of my enlarger or on a formica counter top. Lots of room is really nice when you are loading several 4x5 holders, and it's easier to keep things dust free. Regards, ;^D)

The is a spray-on product called "Staticide" (there are others also) that cuts-down on static and is used in the electronics industry. A search on the net should turn it up.
