  1. Re: Durst L1840 Enlarger 8x10 10x10--Everything you wanted to know...

    I see that Drew got some new enlarger glass recently and I'm considering the same this winter.

    One carrier is AN + Plain, the other is Plain + Plain.

    I see Drew recommends AN + AN.

    So, the old turret contained:

    Componon 150mm
    Componon 210mm
    Componon-S 240mm with some scratches



    New turret:

    Here is my silver Componon 360mm. This is after cleaning. It still has a little haze, but nothing that makes me want to replace it at this time. It is not nearly as bad as the other silver ones I...

    Comparison of new-to-me lens and the older silver barrel lens.
    Of course the rear-lighting exaggerates the poor condition of the coating. If you hold the lens away from a light source and just look...

    The upgrade was more for lens surface quality.
    The new lenses were pretty clean from the start:

    Re: New to this world, looking for advice.

    Re: Chamonix vs. Xxxxx?

    When the Shen-Hao 8x10 first came on the market, it was about $1000 less than the Chamonix, so I went that route. Though now I see they are priced about the same. Either way, you might check out the...

    The condenser head should come off with the thumb-screws. Use SAE tools to remove the column from the baseboard and I think that is all you need. That is the sequence I used to get both my Omega...

  21. Re: Test Targets for Dialing in B&W Development

    When I first did this in the 1970s, I went hog-wild with minimum exposure for maximum black and wound up with negatives developed to way too high gamma. In real life, you can probably go with the...
  22. Re: Test Targets for Dialing in B&W Development

    To be exact, ASA specified development to achieve a specific point on an H&D curve. But for first time testing, consider that development has minimal effect on Zone I.
    So, set your exposure index...

    Placing a diffusion sheet on the inside of a window works. If you move in close to frame it make sure the lens stays on infinity.

    Meters are calibrated to give an exposure to the film so the darkest parts of an excellent print have a slope on the H&D curve of three-tenths the slope of the straight portion of the curve. A super...
