    I’ll be expending a couple of days in Orlando (business not pleasure) and I was wondering if any of you has a recommendation on pulling Delta 400 in Aculux since I have plenty of it. I presume that rating @ EI 200 will be enough to tame the contrast.

    Thanks

    One of my favourite combinations - EI 250, 8.5 minutes in Aculux2 @ 20 degrees C. I find it practically grainless up to 12 x 9.5 inches and it has a wonderful tonality (nothing like the stereotyped modern look). I recommend it strongly.

    My metering was averged from the foreground and my enlarger is a colour head so take these factors in to account too.

    There are a couple of pictures in my gallery from this combo (of the river Thames in London) to give you a sense of what it looks like.

    Have fun

    Thanks Paul, I've got your recommendation from a previous thread. I'll try that
