  1. Re: Tetenal E6 processing time with Fuji films

    I would be very careful with 1st developer times. 6min and 30 seconds works great for me with 3 bath or six bath with my Jobo CPP3, and also my Jobo Duolab. When I tried 7'30" reading this same OLD...

    I would say that the high praise for Goerz Lenses is well deserved. I have a Red Dot Artar that was rescued from a Robertson process camera. I had a Packard shutter, it's setup for my 11x14 studio...
