They weren't around in Cedar Rapids Iowa, at least I didn't see one. We had 3 shops the high-end shop was Sanford's. Hasselblads, Leica, Nikon, etc. Maybe they had Bronicas but I don't remember. I lusted after Hasselblads. I have 5 now. Maybe I should get more.Unless you are really old because the Bronicas have been around since the late 1950s early 1960s.

A well maintained RB67 is pretty darn nice. And you can use the old Graflex roll holders.
here is my latest screw up. Went to develop some film I had shot. After loading the tank, realized I didnt have enough developer. So, went to make some d76 h , and after measuring the metol, my scale died. I had to go town to get batteries. So far, so good. But, in mixing the developer, which is metol, sodium sulfite, and borax, I got distracted, and left out the borax. Surprisingly enough, the negatives while not great or what I wanted, are printable. So, 2.5 grams metol, 100g sodium sulfite will develop film, lol.
I am at a new place. Yes it has to be the water. Cleaned with isopropyl alcohol cleaned almost everything.
I have to say I like the film especially with a flash.
My film came out with a case of measles. Attachment is a small corner of a 6x6 but the spots are consistent throughout the entire roll.
HP5 120, no prewash, Legacy D76 1:2, 10min at 76f (too hot?), indicator stop, Legacy eco.pro fix 3min, rinse, arista hypo wash 5min, wash 5min, drop of dish washing liquid then air dry.
The negatives show no marking either side.
Afterward processed 4x5 negs in same chemistry... no marking.
I'll try rewashing and the alcohol rub, but I'm pretty sure its in the film. If it comes out I'll repost.
Has anyone seen such a case of measles?
This is an example of problems from the paper backing that most 120 films experienced recently. For a while the paper backing was changed due to supply changes and the replacement backing had spotting and mottling issues. There is nothing wrong with your development regime.
Thanks! I found the appropriate thread about Ilford mfg problems and posted there. Also sent Ilford support a report on their form. KInda makes you wish they would go back to supplying 220 again!
