Thread: Analogue Darkroom Digital Assistant

  1. #1

    Analogue Darkroom Digital Assistant

    Hi All

    Have designed and developed this product which I thought may be useful for black and white film darkroom professionals. It is essentially a portable device with the following capabilities :

    1) Temperature compensating process timer
    A timer with a thermometer probe that measures the temperature of your developer and adjust the development time accordingly. You can define up to 16 processes for different neg/paper/developer combination. For each process, you can define up to 14 time steps of 99min99sec each. Other features include display turn-off until end of Fixing, 30sec agitation beeps, etc.

    2) F-stop printing assistant
    Continue to use your linear enlarger timer for f-stop printing. Generates f-stop test strips, dodge or burn-in times and enter the times into your timer. F-stop print plan feature allows you to print multiple prints from the same negative or split grade printing.

    3) Conversion calculator
    Conversion calculators for ratio, weight, volume as well as adjustment factor for enlarger height compensation.

    For more information, plse visit http://www.darkroomavatar.com

    Comments, suggestions, feedback much appreciated.

    Thks!

    Speaking for myself, I was interested to learn about this, although I understand the reason behind the rule (didn't we have someone trying to sell sneakers a while back?). Sounds like an interesting gadget. I also notice that this may be a new person to welcome into the "active" column of our community. Maybe placed in a different category, which I'll still find in "New Posts." That's for smarter heads than mine.

    Finally, Mr. Bowen frequently shills for my book (apparently becoming a cult classic while far from paying for anything more than film), so fair's fair, methinks.

    Season's greetings, Kirk, and sincere thanks for the good job.

    I have nothing against the product. It looks useful. Its just that procedures were not followed. This is a non=commercial site and as the rules clearly state-moderator approval is required to post an advertisement for a new product. Look above at the rules. I would have approved this, and am approving this. In the future please follow the rules.
    Thanks,
    Kirk

    I would prefer an analog assistant, shapely, with nice long legs. However, she would have to be smarter than me to do what your digital equipment does. I don't mind that, but she be too smart to hang around with me.

    Vaughn beat me to it! I also would prefer an analogue assistant - my old joints are getting a bit creaky. With digital I seem to keep losing bits.
