If you order APHS for your 4X5 DON'T order the 4X5 film. It won't fit your holder. Instead order the 3.9X4.9 size. It fits like a glove.
Also, their fixing notes recommend a much longer fix time than Formulary recommends on the bottle of TF4 that I generally use. Which should I follow?
I was going to create my own thread earlier this morning but I may get my answer here
I bought some Kodalith
I tried a few sheets in Dektol around 1:9 and at ASA 3-5
It's coming along ok, I guess
The negative comes out Brown&White as opposed to Black&White
I've used the Adox and the Maco Ortho films in 35mm, and in Rodinal 1+100, 11' for an exposure index of 25 was pretty good. I think they are the same film, but from what I've read the Rollei ortho is a different one.
At any rate, the advantages of true ortho films over pan+filter is that you get the extra-fine grain of ortho (always finer than Pan of the same speed) and the ability to develop under red safelight.
I sure thought I was fixing properly. I fix Tmax the same way and see no brown coloring. I've heard of dichroic fog but that sounds like it's more metallic
I'll just attach a negative. This one isn't my best test shot/development but it's all I have scanned and is very representative
Anything? It still prints the same
when using orthochromatic material what filters can one use?
Obviously orange and red are out
Blue would only lighten the sky even more, right?
Green would perhaps darken the sky a little and whiten greens?
Any way to create a cloud filter?
I was thinking of trying multigrade filters. Maybe a 4 filter
Does it work like that? More magenta=darkening blue sky with red component but keep the light visible due to the blue base of magenta and thus differentiate clouds
It seem since you can use these filters on orthochromatic papers they must have some effect on film
