  1. Re: Have you found exotic developers worth it for 8x10?

    I like Ansco 130 because of it's longevity (thanks, john nanian!)
    I mostly use "plain vanilla" D-76 and have used TMAX RS back when I shot TMY. And a brief fling with HC-110

    8x10 is my preferred format. I like everything from composing and focusing the aerial image on the expanse of ground glass to contact printing those big negatives.

    FWIW I found a 240 G Claron to be a great little lens for hiking with an 8x10.
    Drew Wiley probably has a 240 Fuji that is even smaller and lighter :)

  36. Re: 8x10 Development in tray - How to know the time

    Most B&W films take about 7 minutes in the developer.
