  1. Thanks for your replies guys. I now have a spare standard holder that I plan to file, and I've been offered a few filed versions. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk - now Free
  2. I know someone posts this question regularly - so I'm sorry if it's getting boring! I need a Focomat V35 25x37 negative holder. I believe there were two types made #17011 and #17012, and either will do. I hope someone can help me! I have an exhibition to print for December and I need those black borders! Thanks in advance.
  3. My neg archive does concern me. I use the paper-based leaves but the temperature in my office is currently 30degC. Is this going to cause long term damage? Cheers, Paul.
  4. Erl: Am I correct in thinking that the 5000 doesn't scan to the edges of a 35mm neg? I need to get the edge as a keyline. For this reason I'm looking at the 9000. Cheers, P.
  5. Another vote for 7dayshop. They stock a lot of analogue photography stuff and are worthy of support. Cheers, P.
  6. I'm waiting to find a good secondhand 9000 for a good price. It can scan over the edge of a 35mm neg!
  7. Hi, I know Andreas has just come out with the frankly outstanding iPhone Safari interface, but has anyone seen the iPhone app Tapatalk? Basically, it's an iPhone app for vBulletin forums. I use it for the APUG. Any chance of this forum being on there? Very easy to set up apparently. Here's the link for forum owners: Tapatalk - Online Community at your fingertips! It would be great to access all my forums in one app. Cheers, Paul.
  8. If you're really curious Magnus, I suggest you ask these guys: HEINE/LENZ/ZIZKA Frankfurt office. Cheers, P.
  9. Can't fault your logic there Andy! And you're quite right - not as easy as it looks. The Ph.Art site looks good - but does anyone go there? Maybe I can use Google to see visitation stats for the various sites. Will investigate. Cheers, Paul.
  10. I've decided to take the plunge and try to sell digital "on-demand" prints online. Does anyone do this already? Have any recommendations regarding the best websites to use? I shoot all film, so I'm hoping to provide a scan of a neg to a site, from which they sell prints to the public. I think SmugMug is one option, but they're definitely orientated towards colour digital and I'm definitely not. What about ArtistRising? Anyone tried them? Words of advice? Cheers, Paul.
  11. Thank you all for your responses, I'm very glad you like the pictures. It's very difficult, when you're sitting on your own, sifting through hundreds of pictures, trying to decide on just 30 or 40 to go into a collection. What to discard? Are they all good? Are they all awful? You begin to question everything, so it's great to get feedback like this. Daniel: I'll be in touch! Cheers, Paul.
  12. I've managed to get the softcover version of The Constant Eye up on the Blurb website now, which makes things much less expensive. Plaza Redonda, Valencia, Spain. September 2002. There are 32 pictures, all taken with either an M6TTL or an M7, and all with 50mm. I discuss why I use only standard lenses, and refuse to crop, on the website for the book, so I won't go into it here, but please have a look at the pictures and let me know what you think. It's always good to get feedback! Cheers, Paul.
  13. Can I propose my own meager offering? Links below. All with Leica M's and 50s. Cheers, Paul.
  14. I reckon I'd miss it anyway if I didn't have the right lens, on a body with the right film, to hand instantly. Cheers. Paul.
  15. Don't have an M8 (what's the standard lens on an M8? About 35mm?) but I only ever use 50s on my film Ms. I can spend more time shooting and less time worry about gear. As icqcq says, the fewer decisions I have to make, the better. Of course I'm not saying everyone should work like this! Cheers, Paul.
