    More formulae in there than you could ever use. Lots of good info. Very useful addition to a darkroom user's library.

    A must have book for any darkroom user , I consult mine all the time.
    Mixing from scratch will save a bunch of money, plus a lot of formulas for interesting developers that are not readily available commercially.
    You will want to buy a scale.
    Real cameras are measured in inches...
    Not pixels.

    Couldn't agree more with everyone. It's a great reference along with:

    - The Film Developing Cookbook
    - Tim Rudman's The Photographer's Master Printing Course
    - Tim Rudman's The Photographer's Master Toning Course
    - Ansel Adam's The Negative; The Print; The Camera
    - Gordon Hutchings' The Book of Pyro and the PMK Formula

    Have fun!

    Yup, good book!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.
