    Re: Pyrocat HD in Glycol shelf life

    I get mine pre-mixed from Bostick and Sullivan and keep it in the bottles they send it in at room temperature. It's perfectly fine for at least a year.

    Re: Contact printing with Lodima

    You're right about one thing. The film isn't "somewhat fogged". It's unbelievably fogged. The base density is something like .5. Michael and Paula now make thinner negatives and just print through...

    Will you be in Easley around the time school starts? I may be down your way then. I'd love to see some of these prints.

    Re: State of 8x10 film production now & future

    I predict that Ilford will be the last manufacturer of 8x10 B&W film. I've already made the switch. It's nice not to have to worry about what Kodak will discontinue next.

    The amidol that Michael Smith uses was bottled in 1903, so I hardly think that freshness is much of a consideration here.
