    Gralab pointed away. I listen for the final 'click' as it stops. Somehow occasionally the buzzer is on and I almost go through the roof.

    Lovely, Tri Tran. I used Sumi ink quite a while ago, but when the bottle ran out, the replacement bottle did not work for me -- images were grainy. I used it with lampblack watercolor to give warmth...

    Re: Starting with ULF

    An important question is 'why?'

    My answer for going 11x14 was simply that I wanted bigger prints (and was up for the challenge). I only contact print using alt processes. This is big enough for...

    Sorry, I have not -- I have used it only with sheet film (FP4+, Tri-x, a few others). Ilford does not recommend it for roll film, probably so people won't complain about the grain.

    Re: Aspect ratio of 10x8 and 5x4?

    One doesn't -- for even tray development, sheet film should be processed in trays at least the next size up. So you can do the 8x10 sheets in a 14x11 tray with no problems.
