    HP5 can be used for alt processes, as long as you develop it in a high contrast developer like D-19, or DK-50 (thanks to Vaughn's suggestion several years ago). I've tested it in both and was able to...

    Re: Wanderlust 4x5 Travelwide

    The focusing on mine was tight at first, but eventually quite smooth. Too much back and forth focusing did it in, I guess. I do like it as a pinhole. I got a .4 on it which renders quite sharp...

  16. Re: X-ray Film example and comparison.

    Smooth, flat-bottomed trays are perfectly safe with double-sided films. I got rid of my hangers (for 8x10), as way too much solutions were required to process. Gentle agitation is key. Since...

    Re: Three stops overexposed FP4+

    I would as suggested, develop as you intended. The shadow area(s) (without me knowing what they are), will be quite buoyant... Pyrocat-HD is great at taming high values.
