    Yes, I know. But, didn't the OP say he was located in Pakistan?

    Thanks for posting this link! Watching him brings back many memories of attending his workshop in 1979 and visiting him over many subsequent years.

    Re: Your favorite Enlarger Timer

    I use a Gralab 450 with my Focomat V35 and a very old EPOI PrintRol with my Beseler 4x5. The LF enlarger has an Aristo VCL4500 cold light head on it so choice of an electronic timer is a...

    Re: Your Crucial Chemicals

    Sounds like you have it pretty much worked out already. Nothing wrong with D-76 or D-23 for film development; I use 'em all the time! Paper developers, like D-72, can be easily mixed from raw...
  5. Re: What is your reccomendation for a Graded Fiber Printing Paper

    Unfortunately, not much to pick from nowadays. I like Ilford Galerie for enlargements (Fomabrom isn't bad, either) and Adox Lupex for contact prints.

    Re: how large (or small) are your prints?

    Size of print seems to be directly related to what size film I'm printing: 5x7 for 35mm, up to 10x13 for MF and 4x5, contact prints for 8x10. But, overall, I rarely print beyond about 8x10.

    Re: Which quick release for Arca C1 Cube?

    FWIW, I have three LF field cameras that are flat on the bottom and I've never had a problem turning the knob on my RRS BH-55 ball head. Could be different with other AS clamps, of course.

  11. Re: Stacking multiple Mod54 or 20th Century Camera 4x5 inserts in a single Paterson t

    I, too, would be concerned about fill/drain time and, in my experience, I've found I generally get better more even development in smaller tanks vs large.

    Re: Reveni spot meter

    Intermediate ISO's can easily be derived by +/- exposure compensation. For your EI 32 FP4+ example, set the ISO on the meter to 25, then dial in -0.03 exposure compensation.
