The Reflex Mirror.

To prevent double images on the ground glass of the Reflex Camera, the mirror is made with the silvered coating on top of the glass.

Pete Ganzel can make every size mirror for your classic Reflex Camera. 

As you probably know the reflection or silvered coating of  an optical mirror lays on the surface of the glass, rather than all the other mirrors in your  house, which have the reflection coating on the back of the glass. Please email Mr. Pete Ganzel for more info.

When can we welcome the 4 x 5 inch Instant film?

New initiative to produce 4x5 Instant film.

Bob Crowley's project.

As a New55 FILM backer you will be making history.  But you will also be constructing the future of Post-Digital professional darkroomless analog photography.  Here, we -- a group of artists (from every continent) -- will take up the means of production.  Where large-scale industrial capacity has failed to adapt to the major technological and behavioral shifts from the rise of digital photography, a small-scale factory that is modular, scalable, and humane in its flexibility will begin manufacturing an important and necessary photographic material -- New55 FILM.  We now have the opportunity and the responsibility to make it happen.

First adjust the sheet film reel to the appropriate size.

Slide the film into the reel.  Emulsion side facing the center.

When inserted all sheets, Insert the holders.

 

However, to make it very easy, you may use the Sheet Film Loader Base # 2508 and the guide # 2512.

This works real nice and very easy, as the guide snaps when rotating the reel, automatic to the next free slot.
