    I've been having the same issues. I have a much smaller darkroom than I used to, so I had to part with my Jobo, and got a SP-810. I've had nothing but trouble with it so far: Uneven development,...

  3. Re: Epson V850 work-around for scanning 5x7 negatives.

    The final resolution to the lines in the scans issue I was having was that the while lid / transparency scanner needed to be replaced. It works fine now. I still haven't bought Silverfast, but I...

    Thanks for your help!

    I was having some issues at the time with dust (it was 2013), but most of it on this scan was due to running an experiment to get rid of the lines. I placed it on a piece of...

    I'm not sure if this will be very good. The forum limits pictures to 250K unless they're on a server. You can see the lines, though. Thanks!
  10. Re: Epson V850 work-around for scanning 5x7 negatives.

    I'm getting lines in my 5x7 and 8x10 scans that look like they are from the LED's that are used in the scanner. Is this due to laying the film directly onto the scanner glass, and would a film...

    Thanks! I've been thinking seriously about trying Obsidian Aqua. What I like about 510-pyro and Obsidian Aqua is that they eliminate the rapid oxidization that plagues PMK. You can actually tray...

    So, you adjust the dial until the small dot in the center matches the larger dot surrounding it, and that's your density?

    Re: Finally done with PMK. What next?

    The next question, I guess, is: does anyone know how to use a Kodak Model 1 densitometer? I have a very old one. It looks like it is from the 1930's or 1940's.
