  1. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    Yes, as long as you stay within its limited headspace it is absolutely possible to extract a quality print from HP5. All I am saying is factually HP5 does not have the density latitude capability as...
  2. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    Therein lies our aesthetic differences. ID11 and D76 were the first alternatives I ditched 20 years ago. I detest the milk toast granularity that it produces. Blahhhh. Seriously. Absolutely zero...
  3. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    You can read all of the literature and study this topic all you want. In this instance because the objective net result is aesthetic, the literature can only get you so far. Years ago I similarly...
  4. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    The only metric that need be in play is in the print. Pyro and pyrocat HD (in reduced agitation mode) have a discernible edge effect and mid tone separation that is simply unparalleled. At the end of...
  5. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    Would be elated at qualifying this assertion as I have put at least a dozen less toxic alternatives to the test over the last 20+ years and nothing even comes close to pyro from my visual...
  6. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    I also use a respirator when I tray process with pyro simply because it is an acidic developer that can emit an odor no different than when I mix stop bath from glacial acidic acid. The...
  7. Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    I continue to be amazed at photographers that for some strange reason desire to change two variables in their process at the same time. If you rightfully state that what worked for you for several...

    Re: My Durst 138 Setup

    I have the identical set up (Durst 138S + Ilford 500 variable contrast high intensity light source). I was able to find a 4x5 mixing box and use it to contact print 8x10 through 12x20. Works like a...
  9. Re: Selling All 8x10 Gear & It Feels Good!

    You make a great point Steve. Where the rubber meets the road for me is being able to buy a standard size of sheet film relative to "off" sizes that have to be custom cut. The variability...
  10. Re: Selling All 8x10 Gear & It Feels Good!

    Completely agree that the trend line is discouraging at times. That being said, every time someone avails themselves of 8x10, the hope is someone else takes that baton and runs with it. Sometimes all...

    I had the same problem with the 8x10 and reading glasses until I had my ophthalmologist fit me with bi focal soft contacts. One eye dialed in for distance and the other for near and the reading...
  13. Re: Selling All 8x10 Gear & It Feels Good!

    I recently completed a website of my photographic work. It took me quite some time to make it a priority but I finally persevered.

    A minimum of 12 for 8x10 and half a dozen for 8x20 and 11x14.
  19. Re: DIY Gas Burst Agitation for 1 gallon vertical tanks

  20. Re: 8x10 Vertical Tank Development Issues

  28. Re: 8x10 Vertical Tank Development Issues

    I read both documents you mentioned in the comment above and you are arriving at an incorrect conclusion with gaseous burst for sink line/deep tanks. What you are missing is the fact that there were...
  29. Re: 8x10 Vertical Tank Development Issues

    Completely agree. Gas burst was the industry standard for 50 years when the photographers dropped off their sheet film for roll or for C41 or E6 processing. Wrote an article in View Camera in their...
