Re: measuring spoon method

Keith:
You are probably right; I do like to dable now and then, but I have found few formulae to be as consistently "right" as D-76. So, I did go with D-76 spooned.
Thanx

Re: measuring spoon method

could you suggest one? I have an electric, but it doesn't measure fractions of grams.

measuring spoon method

Occasionally, I will mix my own film developers, not that I can't afford to by ready-mixed, but because I enjoy doing it, and it adds to the personal involvement in the production of the end product, the photograph. I have a formula for Adox borax MQ developer. I would like to mix up this concoction...

Re: Is my Microphen formula correct?

not that it is relevant at this point, but I went back through my collection of formulas, and I found a page that I had torn out of Peterson's Photographic, Feb. 1976, "Technical Index Sheet," by Perry C. Yob. He gives what he calls a substitute formula for Microphen, and also a replenisher. His for...

Re: Agfa APX100 pushed to 400 in d76

Before Ornie jumps in to tell you to throw your film away, it's ruined, film cannot be "pushed", I would suggest that you do either a clip test or shoot another roll at same ei. I can't remember ever using Apx 100, though others could probably give you more advice on this. Is your plan to use D-76 u...

Ornie (rodeo joe?):
Yet to read your response to the technical quality of Mr. Appleyard's photo. You seem to be avoiding responding to the term "usable" photograph, or satisfactory results, in the eyes of the photographer, or intended user of same. Why is this?

Re: 120 Tri-x @ 1600 in HC-110

Again, the term full tonal range. It is generally recognized that this is unachievable when pushing, though I must say that Appleyards photo using diafine was really fine-looking.

Re: FX39

ornello: Our film developing schemes are almost identical. The only part I am ambivalent about is the prewash. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. As I have said before, I shoot mostly 120 as I prefer the bigger viewfinder image. What is your preferred film with this developer? I have been using Ultr...

Re: 120 Tri-x @ 1600 in HC-110

Jim: Excellent result with Diafine. Much better than I was ever able to get with the stuff. Had good results with Acufine, though. All I can think of is that Orny must not have been using a developer suitable to push with, or something else with his technique. Again, very nice pic with the Diafine. ...

Re: Developing B&W film

ornello:
my eyes glazed over before I finished the article, but aren't these procedures geared more for the lab(commercial) people? I'm sorry, maybe I zonked out before I got to the part about condenser/diffusion enlargers. also, I have not seen test strips for amateur bw use before.

Re: FX39

Ornello
Many folks are hung up about grain in the print. My personal favorite sizes are 5x7 and 11x14. Though I tend to shoot more 120 than 35mm, what can I expect from 400-speed traditional film in either format?
TIA

Jim Appleyard: I don't think Ornello really believes what he is saying here. There is obviously too much evidence to the contrary concerning pushing film two stops and beyond. Either he is having fun by provoking an argument or he simply refuses to look at prints and negs that are produced by filmth...

Re: FX39

FX-39 seems to be appearing more often on some forums as developer of choice. Curious to read what you think of it.
