    Hello everybody,

    Do someone has the values to calibrate the zonemaster II (RH Designs) with the paper Kentmere VC Select.?

    Thank you very much

    OK, these are the values I use. They are for a Kaiser enlarger using their inbuilt colour filters set for the values specified by Kentmere for each grade. So I would use these purely as a starting point and carry out your own tests using the instructions on the rhdesigns website. I think I never did test for grade 00 so probably best to ignore that one!

    Also, I can't seem to insert a table or tabs so apologies for the formatting.

    Grade, Offset, Contrast
    00, -19, 150
    0, -19, 150
    1, -19, 130
    2, -18, 120
    3, -19, 110
    4, -34, 100
    5, -40, 90


    cheers

    Mike
