View Full Version : BTSZ WinPlotter File Repository

28-Apr-2014, 09:34
I am trying to start using the BTZS methodology but I am running into a little trouble and I am looking for some help. I know that the system is supposed to be highly personalized to my particular development and equipment but I am willing to forgo the errors introduced by the difference between my development and others ( I am assuming that those differences are much smaller than my current errors because I am kind of just winging it).

I am trying to find a repository of WinPlotter files other than the ones that come with the software. I am actually trying to find curves for Arista Edu 400 Ultra developed in rodinal preferably 1:50.

I have chosen this combination because
-1 arista edu 400 is cheap.
- Rodinal gets mixed just before development and because I live in florida my tap water is usually warmer than 20 degrees so I can easly get to 20 degree tap water by adding cold water from my refrigerator. If the developer has been mixed before I will be warmer than 20 degrees and then I need to do Ice baths or adjust time for temperature.

I attempted to do my own testing but don't own a densitometer and using Vuescan's density functions I ended up with some really screwy curves that made no sense. I am hoping that someone has already done this work and I don't have to reinvent the wheel.

I have asked Dr. Google but I can't find any reference to Arista Edu film curves.

Thanks in advance.

I cannot help with the Arista 400, but I have the curves and .pfc file for the Arista 100 if you should decide to use that.

Hopefully, someone else can help with the 400.

Contact Fred at the View Camera Store or do one of their film tests.
