Brian:

Yup, not going anywhere, but we're having fun.... (Or at least I am .)

You'd think I'd have remembered "preset", but I'm old....

(After all, I remember film....)

My cousin Mick (who owned the Nikkormat) got me into color work just after the Color Canoe was replaced by various drum (and simplified chemistry) techniques. Color wheel on the enlarger lens, and later a filter drawer in a D2V. Never raised the money for a dichroic colorhead. Mick dropped out of processing about then - color was still too much of a mess for him, and he didn't buy any drums. OTOH, I did....

The kicker was buying an enlarger. When I was quite young, I did some contact prints (127 film!), and never quite got going. About the week my dad tossed me out of the house (long story), I'd ordered that Exacta, and when it showed up, my apartment bathroom was perfect as a darkroom. This time, though I bought a cheap enlarger. Burned up a lot of money for the next couple years.... (Including the D2V.)

When my then-fiance and I decided I had to rent a bigger apartment, the darkroom basically didn't survive.

Regards,

Why just a quick note when you can write a novel?
