  1. Re: Aspherical, Apo(chromatic) & ED (extra low dispersion) lenses - whats the differe

    Bernice, the goal would be to get a digitized copy that contains as much as possible of the original information. Today I use a drumscanner I got at a reasonable price - and it works quite well.

  2. Re: Aspherical, Apo(chromatic) & ED (extra low dispersion) lenses - whats the differe

    This is more interesting then I thought it would be. As far as I understand, though, is that a APO-corrected lens is useful for reproduction and scanning (with dslr) large format negatives with,...
  3. Re: Aspherical, Apo(chromatic) & ED (extra low dispersion) lenses - whats the differe

    Thanks for the (useful) feedback fellas.

    Maybe I should have mentioned I got curious about this when considering digitizing my eight-tens with a digital camera instead of a scanner.
  4. Aspherical, Apo(chromatic) & ED (extra low dispersion) lenses - whats the difference?

    Hello folks,

    Whats the practical differences of Aspherical, Apo(chromatic) & ED (extra low dispersion) lenses?

    Does Apo and ED serve the same purpose regarding chromatic aberration?

  6. Re: Black and white stabilizer with Tetenal E6

    I chatted to Tetenal chemist a couple of years ago and as far as I can remember he told me they didnt use formalin anymore... or is there a chance I misunderstood?
  7. Black and white stabilizer with Tetenal E6

    Hi,

    I accidentally spilled out my stab from my tetenal e6 kit. Is it possible to replace that stabilizer with say Kodak Photo-Flo?

  9. Re: Film curves and density range in reversal development

    Thanks. I'm looking into how to make carbon prints from a positive. So, it seems like I want the positives to dense and contrasty... as far as I can figure out. Which I actually think many of them...

    Nope - I have no idea how to do that... or what I need to do that.
  12. Film curves and density range in reversal development

    Hi all,

    The answer to this might be obvious, however... it is a mystery to me. Will negative films like FP4, TMAX100 or TMAX400 with long straight line curves and fairly high density ranges keep...
  13. Re: Making separation negatives from color positive sheet film

    Considering costs I'd rather use...

    Ilford PQ Universal alternatives?

    Hey,

    This is just out of curiosity... are there any developers similar to PQ? In regards of strength, character and content? I use PQ mainly for black and white reversal development.

    I will use the Tetenal instructions for developing Ektachrome, and continue to give Provia and Velvia slightly longer times in the first developer.
