Which "Salt or Pot ash" to use

Momme Andresen's writings are all over the place, as well as those persons that came with him and after him, on the subject of "Rodinal". I want to make an A-B film developer using the following developing agents- 4-Aminophenol HCI and Pyro. These two agents- do well with sodium sulfite. But my conc...

Re: Remembering a Kodak Christmas

Ornello:

I purchased a "Ikoflex 1a" locally here in Michigan. It cost $45.00 dollars. I will obtain it tomorrow. I saved $80.00 dollars for film.


Thank You

Re: Remembering a Kodak Christmas

I open a case against the seller at E-bay, and the a-hole is refunding me the money. He chose to keep the camera, and re-auction it off again, since he did not get the amount he wanted for it. So in effect, I have discovered that E-bay is indeed not a true auction. I feel that $126.78, is a good pri...

Re: Remembering a Kodak Christmas

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. People of my parent's era (the thirties, forties)probably said the same thing about the younger generations. But who can ...

Re: Remembering a Kodak Christmas

Yes Ornello, I know. I sent an email to the seller, asking about my purchase, and he stated that he was snowed in and could not ship it. It is now 5 days since the auction, which I paid right away. And even still, it is not shipped. Tomorrow if it is not shipped by 12 noon, I will flash an email off...

Re: Remembering a Kodak Christmas

Ornello...,

I won the auction on E-bay, and now the seller does not want to ship the camera. He is upset that he did not get a higher price. I am dealing with E-bay on the issue.

Re: Remembering a Kodak Christmas

I must agree Ornello, I must agree. Sometimes, I wish I could be a fly on the wall in some of the board rooms in America, to listen and hear some of the stupid ideas and plans that comes out of meetings. One such place is Capitol Hill. When you submarine our own bread, butter, and money making produ...

Remembering a Kodak Christmas

When I was a child, I would always see ads for Kodak products around the Christmas holidays. Disneyland and Kodak, was a theme that I will never forget, as well as all the Christmas Specials that we would view and watch on television, sponsored by Kodak. And I could not wait to see the new Christmas...

Re: Rodinal, its true story and formula.

Keith, hello and how are you? After re-reading my post, I discovered where I had made it confusing to understand my actions and ideas. What I did was to take 1 oz. of my home brewed Rodinal and diluted it 1:80, and to it, I added the concentrated amounts of Pyro and Borax. What I had was an A, B, C ...

Re: Rodinal, its true story and formula.

Ornello is correct, that people think that Rodinal is better than it exactly is. That is because it is. I was doing some testing of a few old developers in my lab, that I was thinking about trashing. So I pulled out my listing on these samples and began to look at them closely. Pyro and Pyrocat will...

Re: Playing around with a Microdol- X Substitute

For along time now; since, Ian made the statement that Microdol-X was a super or an extra fine grain developer, I have check with other sources and even Kodak themselves to see if they felt that Microdol-X was in the category stated by Ian, and they stated themselves that Microdol-X was and is a fin...

Re: How to properly make PaRodinal

No not yet, thou I have seen and have spoken to those that do develop that way. They use Rodinal, basically the same thing I suppose. There are some good examples posted on Flickr. What gets me to worry about Flickr is that some photos state that they use Microdol-X to develop a negative, and I see ...

Re: How to properly make PaRodinal

Its hard to say Jim, because people behave differently in the care of their equipment. I would say 4 months to be on the safe side of things. But there are those persons like yourself, who take care of their items; so it may last longer. I am still using the batch I made up in May of this year, so i...
