Re: Paper developer without hydrochinon

Hi Pete! I'm very sorry to hear about your condition, but it's impossible to say that exposing yourself to hydrochinon has anythig to do with it. There is still limited evidence on cancerogenic effect of hydrochinon. If you tend to stay away from hydrochinon and metol, you only choice is to wear glo...

Re: Fujifilm discontinue Quickloads.

When did Leica start coating their lenses? Erwin Puts says: Coating was also introduced on the military versions of the lenses in 1941.

Re: Rollei Retro 100+ Rodinal

Miha. How is being sincere condemning out of hand everything someone puts forward especially, given that your knowledge on the subject is very limited if your negative response is anything to go by. Kenneth, If someone is beeing offered a SL66 for his 2 M6 Leicas and 3 Leitz lenses, I would of cour...
