    Re: Focusing loup

    The carson loupes are fine -- if they have the clear base put some black electrical tape around it. Check the focus on the glass without a lens as other articles have mentioned.

    Re: More 510-Pyro Adventures!

    I have not tried 510. For Pyrocat M I am beginning to extend my time for 5x12 negatives to get slightly more contrast. Subjective to scene contrasts.

    Re: More 510-Pyro Adventures!

    Good stuff. I like TF5 because it has less odor and has a great shelf life.

    One other experiment you might try - Bleach a PRINT completely and redevelop with 510 (normal dilution) to see what...

    Re: 4x5 B&W development - no processor

    Or take the opposite approach - One sheet at a time to control the variables for each shot. It will change how and what you shoot once your get in the LF sheet mindset.

    Re: 8x20 daylight processing tank

    Question- in tray development does a single sheet of film tend to float or sink? In a tube it tends to float up when washing. Or is that variable by film stock?

    And why is photo paper 11 x 14? when cameras are commonly 8x10 or 4x5. And why aren't frames sold in 10x12 or 11x13 so that 8x10 can have equal dimensions on all sides when matted? I use the extra...
