    Re: Taking film in and out of the freezer

    Ben, how long do you expect it to take you to use the film? What is the normal ambient temperature in your house? Just asking because it might not be necessary to freeze it and risk ruining it.
  4. Re: Arista EDU and Foma 400 - Are you using them in spite of .... ??

    It is difficult to assign a speed to Foma 400 because it is not clear how they determine speed. If we assume an average gradient on their graphs it appears to be somewhere around EI 200 (using their...

    Music is my primary thing but I don’t really ever mix artforms in that way. I’ve always found that sort of thing artificial/forced. It’s easy to draw whatever parallels one wants, but I don’t see...

    I’ve never used Foma films, but out of curiosity had a look at Foma’s tech sheet for the 400 film. I would have to agree with the responses above suggesting it is not an ISO 400 film. The data/graphs...

    Most medium speed or high speed films will get pretty contrasty if you develop enough but I'm not sure specifically what type of density range is typical for this process. Some suggestions:

  13. Re: Tech Pan 8x10 in a Jobo - Looking for Info

    That’s just the point. Use a film for its inherent qualities.
  14. Re: Tech Pan 8x10 in a Jobo - Looking for Info

    Did Kodak actually ever say that? I'd be surprised. It was never really intended to be used as a general purpose film with a long scale. Overall I agree with you that it is generally best to play to...

    As always, you'd have to define "better", but overall the answer is no.

    The emulsion side of Delta 100 shouldn’t normally form Newton rings. The TMax films and to some degree Fuji Acros can be quite problematic on the emulsion side. Certain types of optically coated...
