MANY THANKS! : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Not a question (this time!) but a THANK YOU to all those who have offered advice over the last few months, especially on the subject of the darkroom. I have finally finished my darkroom and have kitted it out (following advice offered on this forum) and boy am I pleased!! I used a communal darkroom that recently closed but the results I have got from my own are far superior! There really is something to be said about being in the dark by yourself!! Thanks again Paul

Congrats, Paul. How about letting us know what your final choices were regarding equipment, etc.?

Found myself a used LPL 7451 with 2x diffuser boxes, all format neg carriers from 35mm - 5x4 and a wall mounting kit. Boxed with only cosmetic signs of use at a LOW PRICE!!! Combined this with a mint 80mm Nikkor and an even "minter" 150 Rodenstock Rodagon, again very cheap and still boxed.(As a matter of interest darkroom kit in the UK on the used market is real cheap-most seem to be going digital). Due to a shortage of space I am using a Nova 20x16 Quad in place of trays and a Nova archival washer, both bought new I'm afraid! Got some nice LPL easels at half price and a few bits and pieces and I'm a happy bunny!! Regards Paul

Paul: Sounds like darkroom heaven to me. If you don't get good prints out of that darkroom, you oughta' take up golf or needlepoint. Congratulations on putting together a fine darkroom.
