As far as I know, this site caters for all aspects of photography whether using colour or B&W silver halide materials or digital imaging.

Hi kcf,

Please let me know the type of information you are looking for about color photography and I will try to add some relevant content.

As Keith correctly says, the Digitaltruth Photo web site is not specifically aimed at any one aspect of photography, although most of the content is for traditional b&w practitioners. We do sell color chemistry, and some of the technical information and links refer to all areas of photography, whether traditional, digital, b&w or color.

One of the reasons that there is more info on black and white is that the practice of color is slightly more limited, as processing tends to be done to specific standards (C-41, E-6, RA4) with less variation. Also, for better or worse, fine art photographers and students tend to work more with b&w, whereas commercial photography is almost exclusively done in color (and digitally).

We are always looking for suggestions and contributions for new content and would be delighted to add more material on color processing.

Well, I'm kinda annoyed because the folks in Europe have resellers for the Novatronic immersable heater/thermostat but us in the US don't. :/

Yeah, but then I have to worry about how you crazy Europeans use 220v/50hz instead of 110v/60hz.

And don't get me started on the metric system. 5,280 feet to the mile and water boiling at 212 F builds CHARACTER! :P

230V/50Hz in the mean time, which means less power loss in the lines.
Most equipment made in Europe has full range voltage conversion 85-250V/50-60Hz in the mean time. :)

Colour Processing: I do my own C41 negative work for urgent or experimental work but use BonusPrint for my holiday snaps when there are lots of films to process. I do not have the Nova heating unit; it is just as good and much cheaper to put plastic pots containing the developer,bleach and fix into a Walls' ice-cream 2 litre plastic container, half fill with almost boiling water to bring up the chemicals to 104oF, then pour developer into tank, agitate and check temperature after 1 minute when you will find the temperature has fallen to 100oF correctly. Then take out of the hot water the other solutions while you get the wash water up to 100oF in a jug.and so on to the end of the process. I use some Fuji stabiliser at the end of the last wash after fixing,. only because I got it FREE-when it has gone probably will not bother with stabiliser, just wetting agent. ( Fairy Liquid)
