    Rafal - just a thought - if you're planning on doing some sensitometer-based film testing or BTZS type stuff, you might want to consider Fred Newman's testing service at View Camera Store. He'll expose sheets/rolls of film with a calibrated sensitometer. Unless contact testing is something you're going to do all the time, do you really need to invest in one of these things?

    Hi Michael,

    I guess it depends on the price of an EG&G. If I could get one for a good price, I would love to do my own sensitometry exposures, as it agrees with my way of thinking. The results is important, but the journey towards it, with a better inner understanding of the intricacies of the material, too. I wouldn't be doing photographic darkroom all those years if I did not have a weakness for the beauty of the process, I suppose...
