Norm, make that another Yes from me. I have a little Sekonic spot meter with EV scales. I use it all the time to check brightness range. Very easy way to figure out correct exposure. I also have...

I agree. The Reveni one looks crude and simple by comparison. I like the design of the KEKS one much better. Very clean.

Great concept though. Having a shoe-mounted meter appeals for things...

KEKS shoe-mount light meter

Similar to the little Reveni light meter that was introduced a short time ago (thread about that one here: http://www.film-and-darkroom-user.org.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=13053) the KEKS meter is...

George,
If it's fine grain you're after and softer contrast then Microphen might be just the ticket. Others can confirm or refute this, but it's worth checking out. Also, Perceptol would be ideal...

George,

If you like the look of DDX, and you value a film speed increase (or at least no decrease), then you might look at Ilford Microphen. It is a phenidone-hydroquinone developer like DDX, and...

Richard,
It seems your Minolta is able to compensate for the higher voltage in a linear way by adjusting the ISO. Lucky you :). I had a chat a while back with a camera repair guy who said some...

Robot-Berning model II, Biotar lens

I have inherited my father's little German-made Robot-Berning model II camera that he used from the '50s through the '70s. If you're familiar with this camera, it shoots 24x24mm frames on 135 film,...

...or 1/10th the price of the camera at the present market value :D, depending on your perspective. Either way, 45 total investment in a 35T is still a heck of a deal. :)

This is an excellent little camera with a very sharp, contrasty Tessar lens. No need to bin it or sell it. As Nick said, it's all-mechanical, manual exposure, match needle metering. There are no...

Rob,
Try PanF at 25 in Perceptol 1+1. Some of my best images have been with this combination. Being in Canada, I shoot a lot in winter, and I have no hesitation using this combo on a sunny, snowy...

Interesting is right :)

From the weighing of your spoon measures it looks like everything is about 20% shy of the grams recipe, except for borax which is +50%. That's a pretty significant...
