I've just recently begun printing Ilfochromes, and I've been having a lot of pro blems preventing color shifts. I'm interested in hearing from others who are mo re experienced in Ilfochrome printing and can help me clamp down on the variable s that most affect color balance.
I'm currently doing processing in a cheap Beseler 8x10 drum. The edges and corn ers of a test print that should be entirely grey had a magenta tinge to them. I s this caused by uneven agitation? If so, are other brands of drums less suscep tible to this?
I also seem to be having problems maintaining color consistency across prints th at should be identical. This probably has something to do with temperature cont rol, or lack thereof. How precise does the temperature have to be to avoid thes e problems?
