  1. I have a large collection of historic full-size front-page headline newspapers in the collection. I haven't counted them, but maybe there are 1200 to 1600 pages I have a smaller Kaiser copy stand that goes up to 40 inches. But I need a stand that goes to 60 inches or thereabouts for the newspapers. Large format Kaiser copy stands are stupendous in price. This motorized stand is $16K Here is an interesting idea for a cheap copy stand. But it is too small for my use. If it was upscaled and could handle a heavy camera it would be great for the cost. This is like $200. Just depends on how steady it is. Every Kaiser stand I've used is rock steady! And it is not that I just need to do a half ass job with the digitization as many people do. I don't like to sign my name to shitty work. Any archival work I do has to be top shelf or as close to possible to top shelf as the budget allows. We never know when out work will be the last extant copy for the historical record. I was thinking something like this square pipe rig could be made with 2-inch round galvanized pipe. But attaching the camera has to be figured out. Have you ever made a large format copy stand? I also need a vacuum easel. Years ago, I had built a vacuum frame for some copy stand work I was doing, but it is too small for newspapers. <><><><> Selection from Twenty-six Roadkills (2014) artist's book by Daniel D.

  2. I'm testing how long SDD drives hold data without being plugged in. First part of the test is complete. 11 months for a Samsung T7 was OK. Next test is due early 2024. I have enough Samsung drives to go out for a few years of tests. I had heard they lose data if not plugged in periodically. The 'how often' part is up in the air. I've tested SD cards and they hold data pretty good. Also testing thumb drives, going out to 14 years...if I live that long. Here are some SD card tests. SD Card Report…how archival are they? – Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Archival Collection – II (home.blog) Will update thread as SDD drives are tested.
  3. Free download... Found it at the Large Format Forum. I won't post their link because the bastards banned me numerous times...but I hold no prejudice and will give them credit for the source. The Permanence and Care of Color Photographs: Traditional and Digital Color Prints, Color Negatives, Slides, and Motion Pictures by Henry Wilhelm with contributing author Carol Brower http://www.wilhelm-research.com/pdf/HW_Book_761_Pages_HiRes_v1c.pdf The Internet Archive has a copy of it, but you have to borrow it by the hour. Crazy! I was going to upload to the I.A., but was worried someone would complain and take it down. I had spent a month scanning + another month uploading 3,000+ pages of 1970's Playboy VIP Club magazines to the I.A. One day, Playboy complained about the material, and it was all taken down. The I.A. would have normally banned me for that and was lucky they didn't delete my hundreds of thousands of other scans. But that is how the shits in Frisco think. One offense and they kill it all. So. I don't want to push my luck. Everything the archivist deals with is more or less copyrighted. It is the archivist's job to determine whether it falls in the area of the greater good or the greater right. Agfa color photo paper 6 Months Sun Fade Test Selection from Dye Stability Testing of Color Imaging Media II by Daniel D. Teoli Jr. I had an outstanding website dedicated to dye stability testing of color imaging media at Tumblr for many years. But they deleted it along with the rest of my 49 websites in 2019. All the fade testing material was lost. I still have most of the scans, but have not had any time to recreate it. My fade testing is basic and to the point as opposed to Wilhelm's method. Still, Wilhelm has some good fade photos in his book, but also lots of graphs and charts. Well, 700+ pages of material, so something for everyone, whether you like photos or are of the anal 'graph and chart' nature. Also, lots of photos not related to fading and also some cine' related photos. Wilhelm used controlled fading with a room full of lights on 24 hours a day. I could not afford a room full of lights, a room to store them in nor the electric bill running the lights day and night for a decade or more. So, I used Bob Pace's method of sun testing. I also like my method of cutting material into 2 pieces and fade testing one part of it. 6-month sun fade test of a dye-based print made on a Canon MG2522 printer.

  4. Kodak (Mexico?) Inkjet Paper Deterioration See yellowing edge of paper compared to white paper. The entire sheet of Kodak paper has yellow blotchiness. The edge is the easiest way to see the yellowing in a photo. If you have a laptop or unbalanced monitor, you may not be able to see the yellowing. This was Kodak's cheapest paper at the time. From what I recall, the paper was made in Mexico. Paper shown here is 10 years old, stored under normal household conditions. It started to show yellowing about 3 to 4 years ago. All of the rest of this Kodak paper shows the same yellowing. It is hard to get a good photo or scan of the yellowing, but it is easily detected by looking at it under 5,000k lighting. A couple of other major photo paper makers also suffered from yellowing of their cheapest brand of inkjet paper. I didn't record the maker's names. I didn't purchase this paper to print on. I didn't purchase this paper to do archival testing. All these papers were purchased to use as interleaf while printing artist books with an inkjet printer. Unless interleaf was used while printing, the pages would transfer freshly printed ink to the page stacked on it. This was a big problem when using matte black ink, but not a problem with gloss black ink. RC gloss or RC semi-gloss inkjet paper worked best as interleaf as it did not accept any ink transference on the RC coated verso of the paper. <><><><> Daniel D.

  5. eBay: Fair Use The film collectors tell me 3M's Photogard and Dacar's Image Guard were helpful for scratch protection on film. But only for poly film. If applied to acetate, the film could not off gas and accelerated the VS destruction. <><><><> Selection from Anatomy of an 8mm Cine' Kodachrome - D.D.Teoli Jr.
  6. I made a CD-R video recording 15 years ago with a Terapin CD video recorder. A test on 1.4.19 showed no visible deterioration of the content. Full report: https://danieldteolijrarchivalcollection.wordpress.com/2019/01/14/15-year-cd-r-archival-burn-test/
  7. The Reel Thing, a symposium focusing on the preservation and restoration of audio visual collections, will open with the U.S. premiere of a 4K restoration of Billy Wilder’s “The Apartment” (1960), which won five Oscars including Best Picture. A recently restored version of Vittorio De Sica’s “Bicycle Thieves” will also be shown during the three-day event, which runs August 23-25 at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood. The Reel Thing offers insight into the latest preservation and restoration efforts throughout the motion picture community, and brings together experts who are using the latest technologies to make cinema’s legacy accessible for future audiences. In addition to restored screenings, this year’s program addresses topics of vital interest to preservation and restoration professionals around the globe. Case studies will examine the specifics of project restorations, and thematic sessions will look at the many challenges and solutions being utilized in real-world preservation efforts. For the full program and speaker lineup, visit www.the-reel-thing.org. Co-founded by Grover Crisp and Michael Friend, The Reel Thing was developed to address the wide range of critical issues facing archivists, technicians, asset managers and curators of image and sound. Sessions examine problems and solutions involving digital creation workflows (2K/4K/6K/8K+HDR), data storage access and recovery, image scanning and recording, image resolution metrics, traditional video and audio preservation, and restoration issues from a variety of perspectives. The Reel Thing creates a common ground for discussion and evaluation of methodologies, and deployment of both traditional and emerging technologies. The Reel Thing supports the programs and services of the Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA). For more information or to register, visit www.the-reel-thing.org. Discounts are available for industry groups and students.
