    Re: HP5+ and Pyrocat HD in a Jobo CPP3

    Couple possible issues:

    1. Processing 5 sheets of 8x10 in a 3005 drum in 1lt of Pyrocat 1:1:100 chemistry is likely not enough chemistry to cover that amount of film. It would likely be better to...

    Re: FB Enlarging paper availability at B&H

    That may not be a B&H issue. Foma often goes months with some paper types out of stock in the US. If you use Foma quite often, I'd suggest ordering from Freestyle. I find them more reliable for Foma...

    Re: C41 first timer!

    The easy way to think about chemistry coverage calculation is:

    1 roll of 120
    1 roll of 135 (36 exposures)

    Look at the documentation that came with your C41...

    Re: C41 first timer!

    C41 chemistry is much stronger than B&W. I use 500ml to process color 4x5 in a 10 sheet Jobo drum. 300ml should be enough. And check your developer documentation because you can likely reuse the...
