    Since you are referring to "WWW" everything you see is digital. I don't follow digital imagery so I don't now what you are referring to. Can you post an example, I'm curious.

    Are you sliding the holder all the way under the ground glass. The light leak and lack of exposed area could be explained if the film holder were not inserted all the way.

    According to your first post, 1 liter of 1:1 will only process two 8x10 negatives. You would not need to change your time at all for each two sheets processed.
