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Have tried HC-110 diluted 1:120 on a roll 120 Fomapan 400 that was out of date that I picked out of a pile.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.

Re: voigtlander bessa II

due to the overwhelming response to this thread, I thought I had better give an update. found the rangefinder is indeed off; tried to fix myself, but screw to adjust the horizontal is really locked down. certo6 said he couldn't get to it until March. he is going to move to a new house. anybody have ...

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.

Re: pushing ulterafine extreme 400 to 1600 with a gsd10 st

probably totally unrelated to OP, but have been browsing old copies of "darkroom and creative camera techniques", and in the nov/dec 1989 issue, Phil Davis gives his take on agitation, and what causes streaks and so forth. his desire for even development resulted in his "reinvention" of tube process...

Re: pushing ulterafine extreme 400 to 1600 with a gsd10 st

having pontificated as I did, I decided to check out jay defehr's website re gsd 10. enlightening. first, it is a simple formula to mix. if the picture of the little lady he posted as an example is any indicator, it looks quite good. 2nd, I would try jay's recommendation of 24' to an hour. this is s...

Re: pushing ulterafine extreme 400 to 1600 with a gsd10 st

(yawn) here we go again. If you would like to view a discussion between jay de fehr and ornello, go back aways. they fought stand to a standstill. can't agree with orny on streaking, but I have found inconsistent results with stand. I used hc-110 119 parts water to 1 part syrup. some good, some not ...

voigtlander bessa II

don't see much on this forum about equipment as about cameras, so I thought I would try something in that area. I am certainly no tyro, but not an aficionado, either. as I noted in a thread on rodinal, I had purchased an older folder, a voightlander bessa II, in what looked like very good and lightl...

Re: How to properly make PaRodinal

Well, pan f/rodinal combo was marginally successful; in other words, not so good. thinking about trying another approach to the pan f contrast "problem". went through my developer files looking for a formula for a compensating developer. came across one for xr-1. claims to have some compensating cha...

Re: How to properly make PaRodinal

Printed two 8x10's on Kentmere Select VC. Dektol 1:1. Quite impressive. No noticeable grain, sharp edges. As expected, hilite are a little problematic, but not an insurmountable issue. OK shadow detail, the importance of which is the subject for another post. Overall contrast good. No vc filters use...
