    Thanks to all for the useful comments. I will not open it up, also because the darker filter does move into position, not fully (about 90% of the aera is covered) but the calibration spot is well...

  23. Re: Night vision solution for brush development / general D.Room work

    Can you tell us what TRI X looks like under your IR set up when developing by inspection? Does it look way different like FP4?
  24. Re: Night vision solution for brush development / general D.Room work

    I will probably go for this in the end. Looks comfortable and 1x means it is going to be very usable.
  25. Re: Night vision solution for brush development / general D.Room work

    Could you point me toward one of these tiny IR floodlights? I seem to only find quite powerful ones online and I am afraid they are too powerful to use in the darkroom. Thanks.
  26. Re: Night vision solution for brush development / general D.Room work

    These look very nice indeed. And no fogging issues yes?
  27. Re: Night vision solution for brush development / general D.Room work

  35. Re: Using modern film in mahogany half plate dark slide

    @ Steven Tribe, above
    Yes, I would agree with you there. I need to look at my darkslides carefully again, perhaps with someone who has used these types before. But what you say makes sense to me.

  39. Re: Ilford Safelight 908 for development by inspection - did I get a bad one?

    BTW
    I contacted Ilford. They have no idea what that is. It's one of theirs, but probably a special order and they cannot find the original order.
    I knew I had not gone blind!:)
  40. Re: Ilford Safelight 908 for development by inspection - did I get a bad one?

    I know you replied to this a long time ago. But can you tell me what scanner you use to scan your LF negs? I am thinking of getting one and am really confusing over choice.
    Thank you.
