    For that kind of money I think you’re a lot better off with a Jobo. Obviously the Jobo isn’t automatic and isn’t a nifty piece of tech you’d show off in your living room, but the big thing (when I...

    dev.a automatic film processor

    This looks like the latest entrant into the slick design processor space. Kind of like the most recent rotary version of the Filmomat. Does up to 8x10 apparently. I don’t get it, but kudos to people...

    Re: Kodak D23 Question

    D-23 was originally formulated to work very similarly to D-76.

    It can be mixed in whatever quantity, as long as the proportions are kept the same.

    As for dilution, the usual generalities of a...

    Re: 2 sheets of film in the same holder?

  15. Re: Precision and Accuracy in LF Photography: How much is enough?

    You’re not doing anything wrong, as you know. You’re just ignoring a lot of bad information. :)

    Repeatability can be useless without accuracy, depending on which action is being evaluated.

    Re: Unsharp Masking…Would I/Could I/Should I?

    Even with pin registration, you don’t necessarily need pins in the enlarger negative carrier. Align the negative and masking film on pins to make the mask exposure. Then when the mask is done, align...
  24. Re: Precision and Accuracy in LF Photography: How much is enough?

    Part of what makes LF work more predictably is doing it with regularity. The “well oiled machine” analogy applies. If it is sporadic, particularly if you’re relatively new at it, it is clunky, and...

    Re: Unsharp Masking…Would I/Could I/Should I?

    The general principles can apply to any format. Whether or not it is worth trying really depends on whether or not you think any of the types of masks would be of use in making your prints.

    Re: D-76; Mixing Small Batch?

    Packaged Perceptol also contains sodium tripolyphosphate but that’s just a chelating agent, not photographically active.

    Re: D-76; Mixing Small Batch?

    Perceptol is roughly:

    5g/l metol
    100g/l sodium sulfite
    25-30g/l sodium chloride

    Microphen is similar to ID-68, which is a published formula - easy to find.

    It is possible different developers might influence this to a limited extent. Toning could also take longer if a hardening fixer is used, although that is rare these days.

    Re: D-76; Mixing Small Batch?

    Hi Jim,

    It’s actually the other way around. D-76 was the late 1920s, while D-23 was mid 1940s.

    Re: D-76; Mixing Small Batch?

    D-23 was formulated to be very similar to D-76, and they are very close.

    Here is another very simple option for you - use Ilford ID-11, which is D-76, and still comes in 1l quantities so you don’t...

    The “2/3 stop” is the opposite of what you make it out to be. It could simplify things for people, or at least for aspiring Zone people.
  38. Re: Precision and Accuracy in LF Photography: How much is enough?

    Accuracy can be thought of as "correctness"

    Precision is basically "fineness" of measurement

    Repeatability is consistency
  39. Re: Precision and Accuracy in LF Photography: How much is enough?

    I can't remember the last time I made a LF exposure shorter than a second, and most are much longer so shutter accuracy is basically a non issue for me. I don't buy used equipment so I kind of just...
