    Fine looking piece of history. If you have the willingness and or the time I would think this one could come back to its original life with little difficulty. My first though when it comes to any...

    Re: HP5+ Processing and EI

    My backup plan when my stockpile of TMY (old formula) runs out is FP4+ in a RAD pyrocat development process which completely changes its film curve response. You can get FP4+ to do things it would...

    Completely agree with Roberto and Paul. I have seen marvelous images from HP5 so I know it is fully capable of excellent results. But one has to ensure you stay on its wheelhouse or you could be...

    Fantastic Rick. Finding your personal "sweet Spot" with 8x20 negative processing (or any other ULF format) to an optimal result is a truly monumental achievement. Each photographer chases their own...
