Re: Ultrafine Extreme 400

Why am I using an off-brand film. Possibly because some of us retired fixed income folk have to make some compromises if we want to continue our distractions. It is very reasonably priced, it isn't that bad a product, and other shooters have had a good experience with it. Any film is usable if you g...

Re: Ultrafine Extreme 400

I should have said "resembles" Ilford product. Maybe Ilford had a hand in coating and / or packaging this film.

Ultrafine Extreme 400

Has anyone analyzed this film to determine who the manufacturer might be? Been using the 120 with so-so success. the backing paper sure says Ilford.

Re: How to properly make PaRodinal

Kenny: My wife and I may try to get up to Holland and Traverse City this summer, but I just dropped a boat load of funds remodeling a bathroom. My wife has excellent (and expensive) taste. I need to order some sodium sulfite to make up some developers. I did buy a bottle of that drain opener that yo...

I have a 400 ws 3 light system now that I havn't used much the last several years. If I need a quick light set-up, I usually use a Sunpak 611 and an umbrella.

Moersch Photochemie

Moersch seems to be gaining some traction here in the States. Wondering if anybody here has some hands-on experience with Moersch developers and/or toners. The website galleries have some really beautiful examples. Robert Vonk, anything to contribute on this subject?
Thanx

Kenny and Ornello: This is probably an old saw but: Are the people who sit in positions of power today, as socially conscious today as those of, say, twenty or thirty years ago.

Re: New Ilford Papers.

I wonder if this was necessitated by Adox' successful mcp and mcc papers that were introduced some years ago.

Re: Photographers as characters in film

How about Fred Astaire playing a character based on Richard Avedon, in the movie "Funny Face"?

Re: How to properly make PaRodinal

Kenny:
Your getting a little more complex than I would go, but I did consider adding a little sea salt to the basic formula. Have you tried combining parodinal with xtol yet? This mixture seems to be popular in some quarters

How long a shelf-life do you give this combo? My last batch, with crystals, lasted about a year.

Kenny:
does the cloudinesss impair the mixture, cause it to change its performance in any way, or is it just a cosmetic thing?

Re: How to properly make PaRodinal

Kenny:
I noticed that your formula calls for 15 tablets of "tylonal", whereas the formula listed on digital truth calls for twice as many, at 30. Is 15 correct with the use of a different type of hydroxide?

Re: 620 Roll Film for the Masses

KennyE: while 620 would certainly be a boon to those who still use the old Kodak Medalists and folders, the way things are going we should be happy we still have 120 available to us. 620 cameras are really getting on in the years. I recently received an Argoflex 40 from a friend, and it has proved t...
