Re: SS 120 focus problem solved
1. Please keep us (me) updated on any response / recommendations you
get from Polaroid or Silverfast in regards to the focusing issue. I've
noticed decreased sharpness in the middle of the film (35mm) with increased
sharpness near the edges--I assume this is so because the film is closer
to the film holder at the edges. But looking at the final prints--excellent
sharpness and thus pragmatically it's not that huge of an issue since
I use 35mm.
Thanks. Harry Shin
