    Re: I'm curious: HP5 Neg came out in color

    Not only is it in color, it is reversed black to white. If this is a negative then the dark areas should be light. Looks like you used color transparency film.

    Looks good. Better than a lot of stuff I see on the internet. Of course, you are trying for that effect of washed-out imperfection, yes? Otherwise you would be using fresh film right?

    Good that you found one. I was going to suggest that the tapered 5x5 mixing box plastic piece on the USA made Omega diffusers may be similar and easier to find than an original Durst diffuser.
