    and I mean very basic

    New to MF and just got a hasselblad 500c/m (thanks for advice from this forum), excited about square format and whole MF quality.

    Been checking out the 2 local decent photographic shops re processing etc. No problem on the whole but was suprised neither offered 6x6 prints, they offer 8x8 and 5x5 as apparently the paper they use comes in 5 and 8 inch formats not 6. Is this typical?



    :D

    thanks Nick.
    Any suggestions for good mail order then? Colour and B&W. Have come across Peak Imaging reccds for colour, also club35 but no suggestions for B&W

    Must confess that I've not used anybody for mail order B&W in years. Peak and Transpacolor are good in my experience for colour, though.

    Sorry my previous response was a bit sparse, I just couldn't think of anything else to say!

    With 22271 posts I don't think that Nick is a man of few words. ;)
