Subject: [Leica] Darkroom Survey
Date: Wed, 21 Jan 2004 20:28:13 -0500

1. Digital darkroom only.  Donated my Bessler 45MXT with Zone 6 cold 
light head, Schneider lenses, trays, drier, archival print washer and ry 
mount press to my daughter's local high school last year.

Currently using a Nikon Coolscan 4000, Epson 3200 flat bed scanner, 
Apple iMac, Photoshop Elements 2.0, Epson P2200 printer and having a 
ball.  I no l onger have to work until 4 AM to get a fine print.  I can work 
when I find the time and once I nail the print exposure, I can print until I 
run out of paper and they will be almost identical.  

Using Leica M and R cameras mostly.  Also play with Canon G5 for fun.  
It's just too easy to experiment with digital to get the shot you want.  
Digital focusing is terrible.  I miss the Leica rangefinder and lenses in the 
digital world.
