I sure could use one or two
Hope I'm not rude in asking!
Nick - you don't have to have the most expensive step wedges; for instance the Stouffer 21 step is cheaper than the the Stouffer wedges with more steps. The Agfa variety is cheaper still.
Not to mention that since most are done on film, they can degrade over time. I have found mine for cheaper than $20, some even as low as $5 US.
I got mine directly from Stouffer http://www.stouffer.net/Productlist.htm
It was the most recommended model: T2115 at only $6 each. I bought half a dozen as they are easy to misplace. The calibrated models are much more expensive and more accurate but not really worth the money for most alt applications.
If you can't afford the step wedges then you can afford to test with them.
I must have my wires crossed as I thought they were much more than that ...
I understand i dont need the full on calibrated ones and was hoping that maybe someone who did had some they thought were no longer accurate/suitable enough for thier particular application ...
at that cost i'll order some direct - yip, I understand that considering the processes i am working in that step wedges are a minimal most compared to the rest of the gear - asking here was done for two reasons ... I'm a little skint at the moment after having bought an 8x10 camera and a truck load of chems and the other reason being I realized i have so much stuff here that I no longer use that i have been passing on to others for little or no cost that maybe i could try a little reverse methodology - still though $6 ...no problem
