  1. Re: What will happen to your negatives in "the end"?

    i am in the process of beginning to shred beginning with the newest ones. Those over 75 years old may end up with my children.

    Re: Some JOBO CPA questions

    The water in the Jobo base slightly floats the drum easing the load on the motor, as well as helping to maintain a constant temperature.

    These processes were in their prime before Panchromatic films were in theirs. Orthochromatic films were used for a great number of these and other alternative process methods. I still have an ortho...

  7. Re: How To Create Dense & Contrasty Film Negs For Alt Prints?

    If you decide to use ortho-litho films, don't use paper developers which will increase the contrast range to essentially unusable.
  8. Re: How To Create Dense & Contrasty Film Negs For Alt Prints?

    I have been making salt prints for about 25 years. They do not require a "dense" negative. They require a negative with a very long scale, which means the highlights require significantly more...

    Re: Stearman developing Issue

    I have only had a darkroom since about 1938 and have used many systems, but not the Stearman. I am perfectly satisfied with several of the systems I currently have available.

    That's good to know, about the Glycin that is.
  11. Re: Grayish whites and other problems in my new darkroom

    Each of these could be causing your problem. Together, there is no doubt in my mind they are the cause. You need to work at preventing all of them.

    Re: Stearman developing Issue

    At the high cost of film these days it is difficult for me to understand why people continue to use a somewhat questionable container, and unproven developers.

    Re: Processing 510 Pyro & 100TMX with Jobo CPP-2

    I never use the Jobo with 510 Pyro. In my mind, it works better in a tray. If you want to try a pyro based developer in a Jobo, look at Pyrocat HD or one of its derivatives.

    It is interesting that no one so far has mentioned PRINTS!
    After all, they are usually our goal. No matter how your negatives look, make prints and see what pleases you.
  17. Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    I don't know what you mean by "quite a bit", but most people I know use it at 1:3. Since I develop everything by inspection, i can't suggest times.

    Exposure with electronic flash depends on the unit. They put out different amounts of blue and UV which are important to the x-ray film. I wonder if adding a blue gel would help decrease the amount...

    a tray is superior to a Stearman for film development. Another choice is a round tank, Jobo or otherwise.
