    Re: Continuos Agitation?

    Continuous agitation means the film and/or developer is never still. Rotary processing such as what you are doing would be an example. Any setup in which the film is not fully immersed in/covered by...

    Re: Developing tank advice

    Hi Duolab123,

    It’s a rotary development device I made (4x5). Hand cranked.
  3. Re: LegacyPro EcoPro BW Film Developer - Have you used it? - Your thoughts

    Itís like Kodak XTOL. It uses ascorbate instead of hydroquinone so it is a little more environmentally friendly. It will give excellent results very similar to D-76/ID-11.

    Re: Music as analogy for LF photography

    That’s not what synesthesia is. It’s just an artist statement, which is BS and/or marketing.

  8. Re: Fujinon 180mm. f/9 - Curious about some specs.

    Using the green filter to block red is equivalent to using an emulsion not sensitive to red (ortho for example). Either way you are not using red light to expose the film. That’s why I said Helios’s...
  9. Re: Fujinon 180mm. f/9 - Curious about some specs.

    Youíre correct. Assuming you are using panchromatic B&W film, if the image isnít sharp in B&W it wonít be sharp in colour, and vice versa.

    Re: Taking film in and out of the freezer

    Ben, how long do you expect it to take you to use the film? What is the normal ambient temperature in your house? Just asking because it might not be necessary to freeze it and risk ruining it.
  15. Re: Arista EDU and Foma 400 - Are you using them in spite of .... ??

    It is difficult to assign a speed to Foma 400 because it is not clear how they determine speed. If we assume an average gradient on their graphs it appears to be somewhere around EI 200 (using their...

    I’ve never used Foma films, but out of curiosity had a look at Foma’s tech sheet for the 400 film. I would have to agree with the responses above suggesting it is not an ISO 400 film. The data/graphs...

  24. Re: Tech Pan 8x10 in a Jobo - Looking for Info

    That’s just the point. Use a film for its inherent qualities.
  25. Re: Tech Pan 8x10 in a Jobo - Looking for Info

    Did Kodak actually ever say that? I'd be surprised. It was never really intended to be used as a general purpose film with a long scale. Overall I agree with you that it is generally best to play to...

    As always, you'd have to define "better", but overall the answer is no.
