    Re: Fresh dry plates in a variety of sizes

    Can someone advise - I see Randy Moe processed some in Rodinal 1:25. I don't have any HC-110 so will be processing in Rodinal as well, for now.
    Is 1:25 close to HC-110 "B" - which Jason recommends for 5 minutes at 68?
    Made my first exposure this afternoon - will process tomorrow.

    Looks like he developed for 5 minutes and had good results.

    Tray develop under safelight and you can watch the image form. I'd encourage you to test with whatever developer you have and share the results. You are in the fortunate position of testing a product that is new (for modern photographers) to the market, and thus exploring uncharted territory here. That's part of what makes these so much fun!

    Yes Rodinol at 1/25 worked well. Water stop. FIx is up to you.

    I rewashed my last plate below and used a drop of Dawn as Photo Flo. Cleaned right up.

    Looking at my last plate I cannot imagine a better result to a new experiment. Im very happy with what is evolving.

    However Randy did not ask me, so others need to step up. 😎

    Thanks for the info Randy - I'll mix up some hardening fix and get at it.

    Got some plates shot today. My wife's brother is visiting so shot some of my niece and nephew.

    Calculated out sunny 16, added a stop for safety and shot handheld at f/2.8. Not a bad start - lots to learn here and need to think about / remember the issues with ortho sensitivity. Dev'd in HC-110 dil. B in tray under a safelight till I thought it looked good. A little thin in the shadows for sure. More exposure is probably always good and then pull the dev if needed?

    Very nice, Bryan. Lots of potential, I think. Speed 1/60th or 1/125th?

    Fresh dry plates in a variety of sizes

    Awesome!

    Develop for 5 minutes in HC-110 dil B if you shoot ISO 2. There's still some development in the shadows going on almost all the way to that time. They'll come out nice at 5 minutes. You'll be tempted to pull it sooner, but your patience will be rewarded.

    Re: Fresh dry plates in a variety of sizes

    I suspect my wallet will eventually regret this but:
    Any recommendations for a 4x5 plate holder? That will be usable in modern/current cameras?

    I've looked around on line a bit and there are quite a few but I can't always tell if they will work with my Intrepid. Are there any plate holders that will effectively just replace my Lisco film holders?

    Thanks!
    Rob
