Filtration

Taking Ilford at their word, I have no reason to believe otherwise that upwards from Gd 4 there will be change of sensitivity, This was certainly the case with MG4. However as I said before, going...

Filters

I now always use the B&W enlarger with below the lens filters, but the grading of the paper is such I have never had to use a Gd3. My exposures are usually from 2 downwards. Once the exposure is set...

Colour Neg Film

Just what are Kodak and Fuji playing at? I have checked all the usual suppliers for Kodak and Fuji 200ISO film and there is simply none to be had.

I can get Fuji 400 Superia which is too fast for...

Contrast

As I find it easier to print using separate filters rather dialling in the colour I think I may continue to use the M60. than I think I may have to modify my processing. I am thinking of reducing...

Snow scene

There is another problem in this image which may or may not be apparent in the print and that is directly above each of the fence posts there is a increase of negative contrast. This film was...

More on MG5

A few months ago, I was given an old Durst M60 B&W enlarger and I used it for the 1st time today. The contrast with the condensers was higher than I remembered and almost too much to handle....
