I have seen several "scanning" black and white densitometers for sale. Can thes e instruments do regular transmission tests on black and white sheet film? Can anyone give me advice on what to look for in a densitometer? Sincerely, Jerry Cunningham

I am not familiar with a "scanning" densitometer. You probably don't need to buy a densitometer. Spend the money on another good lens or two... or three! You can get any densitometer testing for your LF BW photography done reasonably cheap. See my response to your May 10 posting (I just submitted it today 5/14).
