    Re: 5x7/13x18 daylight processing

    Bounet makes a 5x7 Paterson “B’s” insert. Not sure if it’s too expensive but just letting OP know it’s out there.

    Fear not. Rodinal separates highlights as well as pyro, catechol, D-76, D-23 etc. whatever else.

    Re: What's With the Rodinal? Can't Find Any

    It’s identical to Adox Adonal, said to be different and “finer grained” than R09. The differences are probably not photographically significant (especially in large format). Enjoy!
  5. AgX Imaging (film processing, scanning)

    Anyone know of/have any experience with this lab? Located in Sault Ste Marie (MI).

    The website only really mentions E-6 processing specifically (up to 8x10).

    As far as alkalinity/acidity goes, no problem. Water pH is is a non-issue.
  23. Re: Old Distilled Water in Half Empty Bottle...Acidic?

    It doesn't matter.

    Water has virtually no buffering capacity. For example water might come out of a tap at pH 8 (weakly alkaline) and then fairly quickly go down to pH 6 (weakly acidic) in open...
