Re: Adox ORT 25 developer

Since when does any artist use anything solely in the way it was made to be used?

Re: Adox ORT 25 developer

I seldom use roll film. I shoot mostly sheet film these days. If I shoot roll film, I tens to do it when such adjustments aren't necessary.

Re: Adox ORT 25 developer

Yes, and no. Moden films are made with a certain more uniform contrast in mind, but they still need some tweaking to get the best out of them. You can still get more punch in a low contrast scene with expansion, and you can keep your highlights in check with contraction, just not as much. I find tha...

Re: Adox ORT 25 developer

Interestingly enough, the POTA worked just fine with Ilford Ortho +. I haven't shot the Adox yet. Soon, though.

According to the Film Developing Cookbook, POTA was developed to photograph nuclear blasts. Egad!

I just bought a box of 4x5. I'm working my way through a box of 8x10. I have to special order it.

Re: Adox ORT 25 developer

"Gary, why an awful-chromatic, (I mean ortho-chromatic) film instead of panchromatic? (Sorry, couldn't resist)." Different film sees the world in different ways. Half of the fun of photography for me is experimentation. Sure, I produce fewer usable images than I would like, but there are plenty of p...

Adox ORT 25 developer

I just started using Adox ORT 25, and I was wondering what developer is best to use with it. I've heard that paper developers will work with ortho films, and that standard film developers will give too much contrast. I want pictorial tones. Anyone have experience with this?

Thanks!

Re: Negatives from digital files

Let's not eat our young, here. I think that dr5chrome's quip wasn't representative of the quality of their product. I've heard many good things about dr5chrome, and although I haven't used their services yet, I may in the future.

Absolutely cool. I'm still waiting for color print film in 5x7, though.

Re: Fujifilm discontinue Quickloads.

I wouldn`t sell your LF Cameras, but you might find the photographs of the late James Ravilious of interest. They are interesting, considering that I've been moving away from uncoated optics. Occasionally, I do have need of a 35mm camera for more "candid" images, where mirror slap would be a proble...
