Thread: DBI and the ZoneVI safe light

    DBI and the ZoneVI safe light

    I'm in the process of building a New Darkroom (yes I'm coming out of the basemen t and onto the Main Level) and nobody can do a Damn thing about it, I'm a man on a mission! And I want Modern Equipment! Yes, I have already confirmed that th e Stainless sink and the New Besslers and new light sources did not improve my f inished product but it's a lot more enjoyable and more comfortable. Please tell me that's worth something! I have purchased the Zone VI Duo Lights. I just re minded myself that I use an old EK Safe light with the Dark Green filter, for De velopment by Inspection. I realize the color is for ease of viewing, but I'm wo ndering if any of you have made this change? Will I be sorry? Do I need to kee p the Old ugly EK Light? Your experience will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    MAC

    If you know the proper wavelength, and if you are handy with electronics, you may be able to build an LED version.
