Re: Rollei Retro 100+ Rodinal

I love the Yorkshire skit by the way. There is a Yorkshire saying which you might not have heard which goes "You can always tell a Yorkshireman but you can't tell him much" Re your comment "Kenneth, If someone is beeing offered a SL66 for his 2 M6 Leicas and 3 Leitz lenses, I would of course express...

Durst 670 Colour Head upgrade to 6 x 6

I have a really new condition Durst 670 Colour Head Enlarger which I now need to upgrade to print 6 x 6. I have a Rodenstock Rodigon 2.8 50mm lens which is 35mm format and I am hoping to get a Schneider 80mm lens. I will also need to update my Neg carrier with a 6 x 6 carried with glass but as far a...

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. I have used various Rollei cameras in the past including thier legendary TLR's which are phenomenal p...

Re: Rollei Retro 100+ Rodinal

Guess what folks the Rollei SL66 is back on again and Miha if you want first choice on my M system you are welcome to contact me by e-mail. You can have it for the same price as my trade in offer but you will need to be quick. My sponsor in AA used t say that I was up and down like a haws draws. I ...

Re: Rollei Retro 100+ Rodinal

Kenneth, I'm not arguing your decision to move to 120, it's the deal that is far from generous. Your Leicas and lenses are worth much more than the SL66 is (one of the least reliable MF cameras). Did you decide on the Colourplan P2 lens or are you going to upgrade your 150 for a 300+ 90mm Colourplan...

Re: Rollei Retro 100+ Rodinal

Thank you all but I am beginning to wonder if I can really be bothered. I am not sure my Manfrotto 190PROB is man enough for MF. My darkroom is really set up for 35mm format and my leica M outfit fits my Billingham bag perfectly and working on the theory of not liking change and, happy with the devi...

Re: Rollei Retro 100+ Rodinal

I have been offered an incredibly good deal to trade in my 2 M6 bodies and 3 lenses for a Rollei SL66 system which is mint and consists of everything I need. I hope you are kidding! Deadly serious. I know it came as a shock to me but I could not refuse the generous offer that was made for my system...

Re: Rollei Retro 100+ Rodinal

Why not keep the Leica etc. and just add the other?[/quote]I cannot afford to do that and anyway I would not want more than one system[/quote]

Well that's OK but I would hate to see anyone part with his Leicas.[/quote]I know what you mean. It feels quite a wrench even considering seperation

Re: Rollei Retro 100+ Rodinal

OK I hear what you are saying. The type of photographs I make in my more senior years tend to be much more studied meaning portability and speed are not an issue as I work in a more precise and deliberate way with subjects that are by and large stationary, landscape and detailed. I now try to visua...

Re: Rollei Retro 100+ Rodinal

But I am proposing to move to medium format so I will not have a compatibility issue unless you can see something glaring which I have missed. Please tell me what you don't get. I don't quite understand what you are saying. My Durst 670 will be compatible as I am proposing to exchange my 50mm Rodens...

Re: Rollei Retro 100+ Rodinal

Thank you. Since we last conversed I am now considering a total change of camera system. Nobody is more surprised than me as I envisaged that I would be a Leica M6 fan forever.

Re: Rollei Retro 100+ Rodinal

Thank you for that. I noticed when reading further barry Thornton "Elements" he talks about down rating Tri-400 to 160 asa and cutting development time by 35% and rating Agfa 100 asa at 50 asa and again reducing development time by 35%. I appreciate your help in these areas and although I have taken...
