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

this has been ornello's mantra for years, and fortunately, not everybody has bought into it. true, you may lose some "shadow detail" but so what. you probably didn't want to take a picture of shadows anyway. anyway, yes, the syrup is mixed with the final volume of water. for example, my current pref...

Re: bergger pancro 400 120

just finished second roll of the bergger. since this is an entirely subjective review, take it for what it is worth. the first roll was developed in d-76 1:1 for 17'. thought this was rather long, but that is what the instructions say. fix for 6'. again, for rapid fixer, a long time. negs a little g...

Re: bergger pancro 400 120

developed first roll today, D-76 1:1, for 17' @68 degrees f. This is Bergger's recommended time for this combo. I thought it a bit long, but figured, oh well. Negs came out perfect, by my estimation. Previewed them on V500. How they wet print may be a different story. A few observations: the backing...

Re: Mixing Eco Pro Developer - what kinda water"

dfbldwn: what kind of water to use may depend on what is in your tap water. it is my understanding that most photo chemicals today contain an ingredient to combat some hard water contaminants. if you think it is pretty free of rust, or other impurities, tap water is the way to go. if you think it is...

Re: Rodinal digitaltruth´s formula not working !? HELP

andre':

never used this formula, but have used formula for parodinal. much simpler, works about the same, I guess. Another alternative would be Kenny's version. See previous posts.

Re: Minox Compact Camera.

as I seem to recall, though, some of the issues with the minox are fairly easy fixes. I saved a thread on that some time back when I thought about buying one off the 'bay. not too sure I have it anymore. they do look like nifty little pocket cameras.

Re: How to properly make PaRodinal

Mixing rodinal and xtol probably did not work out in the long run. Haven't seen anything about it lately on photo.net or apug.

Re: Pan F+ in HC 110

Have tried HC-110 diluted 1:120 on a roll 120 Fomapan 400 that was out of date that I picked out of a pile. Exposed at 200, stand developed for an hour. Yankee plastic reel tank. One hour was probably a bit too long. Negs did print ok wet print. NO bromide drag or other problems. Believe St. Ansel u...

Re: Pan F+ in HC 110

Ornello:
What times would you suggest, and dilution? I have found Pan F+ to be a hassle, but I am stubborn, sort of. Might like to try it again.

Re: Minox Compact Camera.

ricoh and chinon made similar cameras. I wonder if they suffered the same reliability issues as minox? in fact, they look so similar, I wonder if they aren't the same camera. aside from the reliability thing, I understand the lenses were excellent.

Ornello:
I assume this is the fx-39 you referred to in you January post last year. I am guessing that you are finding it meets your standards vis a vis other developers.
