Hi Pete,
If you have thin negs at iso64 try shooting at iso32. This should sort out the negative density as the film seems to have lost more than 1 stop of speed in the intervening 25+ years.

That's quite remarkable, Neil.

So, if I understand correctly, by using 1 film with double the volume of developer, this will lead to problems?

So 6ml dev in 500ml of water is not the same as...

When hand processing, I only agitate 2 turns every 30 seconds. I don't know how you can get 5-7 turns in 30 seconds, it certainly seems over zealous by my processing standards!

Have you tried pre-wetting or pre-washing the film?

Regardless of what you might read or hear it could help solve some more of your problem.
I do it especially with large format film.

John. your story relates a lot to what Blakemore seems to do by re-visiting the same locations and scenes year in & out endlessly searching for new interpretations of the familiar.

It's not cheap at £179. I love my Weston Master V but I don't know about attached it'd have to be augmented at that price!

It's almost the same price of a new Sekonic L398A Studio Deluxe III.

Just for clarity.


There's no chance of the film having stuck together at any point during processing?


All of the sheets of film have the same notch code?

Would photography still hold the same pleasure for you without the opportunity to 'wet' print your own work?

I know I could put this into a poll but to be honest, I find "hearing" members comments much more interesting.
