    Re: Homebrewed Film Developer Formulas

    I like PC-TEA: 3-4 ingredients, less toxic than most, long lasting, and you can vary the dilution if necessary.

    500ml - Triethanolamine (TEA)
    45g - Ascorbic Acid
    1.25g - Phenidone
    1g -...

    I think typically people use PayPal when buying and selling. I would certainly be very wary of taking a personal check. It always helps to check the age of the account/post history and there is the...

    Re: To buy or not to buy

    I don’t think there is much better for the price than the Epson scanners when it comes to large format. I wasn’t so happy with the performance for medium format but it is excellent for 8x10.

    I also have hard water with 13.5 grains of hardness which isn’t as much of an issue as the high iron content. So I only use distilled water when mixing chemicals that aren’t one shot. I always use...

    Re: Canon pro 1000 for digital negatives

    It is possible to make digital negatives with the Canon Pro-1000, speaking from direct experience. I have settled on using black inks as i haven’t been able to find a color that blocks UV well enough...
  12. Re: Printing editions with Pictorico digital negatives

    I think some of the accelerated tests show those Epson inks lasting 200+ years depending on paper selection so a couple hours of exposure time isn’t anything to worry about.
