    Re: 8x10 Vertical Tank Development Issues

    If Kodak made the recommendation, it wasn't because of some self-serving marketing objective, but because it dramatically reduced the potential for user error. They will have likely tested every...

    Re: 8x10 Vertical Tank Development Issues

    For the record, Kodak Z-131 and Z-119 make it pretty clear that gas-burst alone is not really recommended for colour processing in sink-line/ deep tanks of the sort discussed here - the instructions...

    Re: 8x10 Vertical Tank Development Issues

    At the risk of pointing out the obvious, using a conventional camera film and a conventional developer would reduce a lot of your variables. Hanger/ deep tank systems make some sense if you have...

    Re: Focus accuracy issue with Intrepid 8x10

    Drew - I think Intrepid use the void free birch ply that tends to get called 'laser ply' currently.

    Re: Advice on De Vere 504 Cathomag Enlarger

    The De Vere Cathomag is about G3.5 natively on MG papers. Not that difficult to use with MG filters, just requires a little lateral thinking.

    The MG500 is good, but not any better than the...

    Re: Bergger Panchro-400...Experiences?

    No. It seems to be a standard Bromo-iodide negative emulsion set (as Bergger themselves say), coated in two layers (as almost all ISO 400 B&W neg films are today). The high base fog is going to be a...
