    Out of Stop, switch to water?

    Hi.

    I have been using Ilford Ilfostop when developing PF4Plus. But I'm just about out.

    Should I just switch to using water for the Stop process and save the money?

    Thoughts?

    Kent, that Cambo would need the bag bellows for sure. I measured it and think 125mm is about the absolute minimum.

    I'd like the next lens to be either the 75mm or a 90mm. The 72mm or 80mm are fine as well, just need that range.

    Here's the deal. I currently...

    Correct?
