    Re: contact printing ??

    I like the lower wattage and diffusion material idea/s.

    Moving the light a lot further away will help, too. (3 to 4 times further away?). If you are using a contact printing frame, you can print...

    Re: Probable Goof

    No. If it is 400 ISO film and you set your camera at ISO 200, the camera's meter thinks it has slower film in it then it actually does, and thus will 'over-expose' the ISO 400 film by one stop.

  7. Re: Please help me identify the source of this light leak on my negatives.

    In those situations, the non-notch areas are more protected. Those are the times that need more attention. What is the possibility of an intermittent light in your film loading area? The fogging is...

  11. Re: John Higbie Invents! Watch This (Pt/Pd laser printer)

  12. Re: John Higbie Invents! Watch This (Pt/Pd laser printer)

    My guess is that since he started out with the idea of using silver gelatin paper, he saw that it was already done, and switched to pt/pd to produce something new. In theory, it should work for most...
  13. Re: John Higbie Invents! Watch This (Pt/Pd laser printer)

    One could think of them as very stable inkjet prints, I suppose. I wonder if they'll have the same banding issues. Also, a price comparison per square inch for the cost of the pt/pd vs the ink would...
  14. Re: Please help me identify the source of this light leak on my negatives.

    Rebates are fogged...so the fogging happened when the film was not in the holders.
    Developing tanks changed with no difference. Film in box okay.
    Fogging therefore occurs while handling film while...

    Re: Photo Flo In Presoak OK for PMK?

    I thought I read that one of the reasons Ilford does not suggest a pre-soak is that their film's emulsion already has a surfacant in it to aid an even reception of the developer into dry emulsion.

    No issue if you plan on focusing using the ground glass.

    If you plan on using different focal length lenses, then the rangefinder is not as useful as it will not be calibrated to those lenses..
