    Re: Flood lights for contact printing

    I was at a friend's house printing on Lodima with a 45w bulb. Print times were ~10 seconds with EV 9 showing on the baseboard. I can't remember what type of bulb it was though. I assume it was something MAS approved. I'm getting a contact printing setup for Lodima/Lupex as well so I'll join in. Probably start at 50/100 to see....

    Thanks everyone for your ideas. I'm going to get a selection, cut some of my paper stash (Azo 2,3; Lodima 2,3; and Lupex 3), and see what I can get in terms of times with a selection of bulbs. It's been a long time since I contacted printed on silver chloride (over a decade) but I think that the time as come.
    Hi JM:
    I develop in ABC Pyro with enough density to print on both Lodima 2/3 and for Albumen paper.
