    Very nice. Since the old Agfa paper this Adox paper is modeled after recommended using different filtration numbers dialed in from a colour head, maybe you could plot some curves for that. I think most people, at least the ones I know, use the dichro filters in their enlargers to vary their contrast. The only time I use Ilford filters is when I use my condenser enlarger.

    Hi Eric Rose

    Give me a few days and I'll put up the graph for the dichroic filters. My enlarger head is a DE Vere dichroic head. Also I tested the Adox paper for maximum black with selenium toner, which I will write up in a week or two. I wanted to keep the article as simple as possible. Thanks for your quick response.

    Well done....thanks....the BTZS method is one that I always use. However, as Fred would emphasize, one MUST test materials in one's own lab using one's own filters, developer, water, etc., etc. Once again, thanks Fred!!!

    Hi !
    Years ago using Agfa's papers, I was surprised not to be able to get a very hard grade on them.
    A phone call to an Agfa rep gave me the answer : the grade 5 can only been got at by using a very dense magenta filter (the filters Agfa made for their papers are quite different from their Ilford counterpart).
    They guy was kind enough to send me a set of Agfa filters. If you place the #5 Ilford next to the #5 Agfa, the difference is obvious. This may explain the results you've got.
    Just my 2cents

    Thanks and waiting for the film part.

    In fact, if all the demo video of BTZS is up (all tools including even powerdial), it would be helped a lot of us to understand.

    Hi dnf88

    I will be working on it. It's still 102 degrees in Arizona - needs to cool off before I can work on it. Please be patient. You can call me for help 480-767-7105.

    Thanks

    Fred
