    Re: Durst L200 - New to Me - Confused

    With the head you currently have, you'll have to use filters to change contrast. The Ilford MG Head has a computer-controlled filter built in to the head. You basically punch in the contrast number...

    Re: Lets See Your Darkroom

    Gudmundur, what a nice space. What light source is that in place of the condensers in the Durst 184? I saw in another thread it's a cold head, but which kind?

    Very nice work, Andrew. How was Caddo Lake from an LF perspective? I'd like to plan a trip there but it looks like solid ground for tripods is scarce.

    I agree with this assessment, and notice it especially with HP5+ and Tri-X in medium format. They appear very sharp compared to 4x5 HP5 on the same sized papers.
