    Poll: Re: Poll: most used ULF formats

    Thank you very much to all of those who took the time to answer the poll. I will keep the forum posted about the development of this tank.
    Happy holidays!
  2. Re: Heiland densitometer for ULF negatives

    I am going to go that way too. I just bought a used Minolta spotmeter to dedicate to the BTZS solution. Yes, fine grain accuracy will be so-so, but I think I can live with that. I did not understand...
  3. Re: Heiland densitometer for ULF negatives

    I decided to contact them a couple of weeks ago. I asked them (in German) if it were possible to have a longer arm or a detachable sensor.

    They have not replied.

    Poll: Re: Poll: most used ULF formats

    30x40cm ............ o 12x16in? You'd be the first one!

    Actually, the second one, I do 12"x16" in-camera photography (Harman, Imago and Ilfochrome back-then); this is the reason why I put it...
  5. Re: Heiland densitometer for ULF negatives

    I am afraid that a one-off version of the densitometer may result in a price way beyond my $$$ possibilities (and the Heiland as it is is already way up there for me ...). Anyway, if I decide to...
  6. Heiland densitometer for ULF negatives

    Hi all,

    I am tempted to pull the trigger and buy a Heiland densitometer, probably the TRD 4. In spite of receiving excellent reviews, what makes me still reluctant to invest that much money is...

    Poll: Poll: most used ULF formats

    Hi all,

    a friend is designing and building an innovative tank for the development of ULF films. It would be quite helpful if he could have an idea of the most popular ULF formats because he must...
  8. Re: any proxy for Cibachrome P-30 chemicals

    The last ilfochrome I developed was three years ago. The paper - always kept refrigerated - was about eight years old. The chemistry was five years old. The result was pleasing, no significant color...
  9. Re: Once again: streaks when developing *some* fiber based paper in Jobo 3063

    It's a Jobo CPP2. I agree with you that having water in the tempering trough is not that important for paper development, considering the fact that my room temperature is always between 19C and 20C...
  10. Re: Once again: streaks when developing *some* fiber based paper in Jobo 3063

    After a few developments that worked just fine I concluded that it must have been too much water in the tempering trough and the drum was floating. The switch to a different paper coincided with the...
  11. Re: Once again: streaks when developing *some* fiber based paper in Jobo 3063

    I had something else to take care so I was not able to develop any print. But I will do it this weekend and keep you posted.

    I will work first under the assumption that the problem has something...
  12. Re: Once again: streaks when developing *some* fiber based paper in Jobo 3063

    That may be the case. Which means that 500mL are not enough for 16x20 fiber-based Ilford Multigrade but 300mL are just fine for the tens of fiber-based Fomabrom 16x20 Variant 111 prints I made...
  13. Re: Once again: streaks when developing *some* fiber based paper in Jobo 3063

    I always use the liquid once, but I would not mind to throw a liter away if that solved my problem. I do not print a lot.

    I am a bit concerned about using one liter for other reasons. I develop my...
  14. Re: Once again: streaks when developing *some* fiber based paper in Jobo 3063

    Yes.
  15. Re: Once again: streaks when developing *some* fiber based paper in Jobo 3063

    Yes, it does automatic reversal of rotation during processing.
  16. Re: Once again: streaks when developing *some* fiber based paper in Jobo 3063

    The two prints - one screwed up, the other just fine - have been exposed and developed within 30 minutes from each other with the same, "identical" procedure. Clearly it was *not* identical,...

  19. Once again: streaks when developing *some* fiber based paper in Jobo 3063

    Really frustrating. I read all the old posts on the subject, I am aware that Jobo and fiber paper are not a happy couple, and yet I cannot figure out what's going wrong.

  21. Suggestion on macro lens for 14x17

    Hi all,

    I will soon be starting a series of projects that will keep me busy for the next three or four years, so it makes sense for me to invest in the best possible lens for these projects.

    Re: From Compur 5FS to Compound V ?

    Thanks, that’s what I had done already but the numbers from three different lenses seem to be quite different, a +/- 5% that does not help if one wants to buy a Compound V without trying it out first...

    Re: From Compur 5FS to Compound V ?

    Ok, I did my homework and failed.

    Is there anybody out there who owns an Apo-Lanthar 300/4.5 mounted on a Compound V shutter who can take a couple of measures for me pleeeeease?

    The Apo-Lanthar...
  24. Re: Compur electronic 5FS shutter's measures

  25. Compur electronic 5FS shutter's measures

    Looking to replace my Compur electronic 5FS with a Compound V I checked the measures of the former.

    First the front and rear inside diameters _are_ different. While the rear is more or less 82.5mm...

    I have a lens mounted on a Compur Electronic 5FS and I am considering buying a Compound V to mount the lens on it. Neither shutter is very popular, but the little info I found seems to indicate that...
  27. Re: Attention Please: Lotus LF & ULF users

    You seem to imply that my camera is older than pierre506's 12x20. Is this the case? Lotus was producing 12x20's well before 2007.



    I use a 10lb APO-Ronar 1000mm f/16 on my Lotus. In this case I...
  28. Re: Attention Please: Lotus LF & ULF users

    My Lotus 14in x 17in has a tripod plate that was mounted in a very different - and far sturdier - way. It's vintage 2007 if my memory serves me well. There are four screws and the plate is actually...
  29. Re: What lens for 2x - 3x macro photography for my Lotus 14x17?

    Lots of comments and suggestion to think about. Right now I am between studios, and the new one will not be operational for another month. So, it may take a while before I can make some experiments....
  30. Re: What lens for 2x - 3x macro photography for my Lotus 14x17?

    Thanks Dan!

    I do not understand why this thread has been moved from ULF to the "lenses" section. My camera is a 14" x 17" camera, it is as ULF as it gets, the question was ULF-specific and I...
  31. What lens for 2x - 3x macro photography for my Lotus 14x17?

    Hi all,
    I would like to start some serious work on this kind of photography, i.e., macro still life in the range 2x - 4x life size with my 14x17 Lotus camera. I would shoot of course black and white...
  32. Re: High end scanner options - What's out there?

    I scanned my 6x17 film by inserting it in one of the plastic frames of an Epson flatbed scanner. The frame is attached to one of the standards of my sinar P2 with duct tape. It sounds ugly but in...

    Pierre, thank you for your kind words.
