Re: Roll Paper



Thanks Jim My mom left me some presses I think after looking through the
boxes of photo equip.she had left me and seeing the pieces of smooth
masonite I can assume that is what she used. There is several boxes of
camera equip. that I inherited I've never given them much thought but today
when I was going through them I had noticed several various cameras 2
Rollei's a Hasselblad and a couple of older twin lens reflex one a rollei
and the other a yashika 125 matte. There's also 3 of the old grafix 4 X 5's
press cameras, several flash units, camera backs even polaroid backs a
strobe lighting system. She was a nut for camera equip I can't remember her
ever going anywhere without at least 2 cameras with her. The equipment all
seems to be in excellant condition. I know this equip. is worth some money
I'm just not sure how much. My first question would be how hard is it to
learn how to use this equip. I'm thinking it would be a lot better than the
Digital camera I'm using at the present { Epson 850Z } I've always been more
for the simple type fully auto. Is it hard to learn to use this type, Is
there any really good books that will help? There seems to be manuals for
most of it. I suppose this is something that just takes time to do right.
I'm gonna order some roll paper tomorrow or Monday I'm really anxious to try
it.I figure I'll be able to do some 13" X 36" prints for signs and posters
fairly easy.
