    Re: Experiences on ADOX CHS ii speeds (4x5)?

    Here is one shot I took with CHS II (at box speed). This was a negative scan though I do hope to print it in the darkroom soon:

    I've printed CHS II in the darkroom before with lovely...

    Experiences on ADOX CHS ii speeds (4x5)?

    First of all, I love the new CHS ii! Really beautiful film! I process it in XTOL Replenishment in a rotary and have settled on 9:30 at 20C for developing time. This seems to provide good density for...

    Re: AC, Venting, ideas for a Darkroom Shed?

    Ah that's good to know, thanks! Yep the AC is going to be a hard requirement for the warm months (of which there are quite a few here in Texas). My non-AC season is slightly longer since I do most of...

    Yep that was my plan, though I am going to try to do it in waves as best I can. On the mini-split, does it control temperature well? I've heard with some of those models since they use a heat pump...

    Re: Wanting to try ADOX MCC 110 - any advice?

    In the US actually. It ended up being cheaper to go with Fotoimpex or at least the same price and at the time US places were out of stock of either the MCC 110 paper in the sizes I wanted or the CHS...

    Boy it sure is snazzy on the inside! Very nice setup! I actually hadn't though about having the enlarger on more of a mobile table, so that's a thought. I priced out the raw materials...

    OOOH yeah I forgot about the constant control that split-ACs can do. Interesting that central HVACs for homes don't do that. That's likely worth the cost and electricity premium since I can keep my...
