    I think you came to the same conclusion as recommended in the paper's instructions and posts 12 & 24.

    EI 3 + Zone III pre-exposure to control contrast.

    The unprocessed paper has a pink emulsion.

    Yep...but I don't like it much, because you don't get a black :-(

    I'm noticing exactly what others have said about the Efke paper and short exposure reciprocity. Anything shorter than 1 seconds is useless. I'm also noticing an inconsistency in shots using the same light conditions, exposure, development routine etc. It's a tricky beast for sure.

    If you are using the fibre version, the necessary washing time will take care of the pink. The washing time in the technical data for the RC paper is 2 mins. For me - that left the prints a bit pink, still. Maybe it is my water or something, but it was too short a wash...

    I got a grade 2, a Dmin of 0.06 and a Dmax of 1.96. That's pretty black.

    Nice to know it is achievable, then

    What was your exposure time?

    This seems to be crucial.

    I've never seen the paper unprocessed so didn't know it was pink, but I can say that after 30 seconds fixing, my paper was pure white. I havent seen any pink on it at all, perhaps you need to strengthen your fix?

    I set the incident meter to EI 3 and exposed for the recommended reading. EI 3 works for me for indoors without filter. Outdoors, I used EI 3 as well but used a yellow filter.

    Do not dilute the developer too much if you're after Dmax. I used Agfa Neutol WA at 1+15 for 2 minutes. A selenium toner will increase Dmax to about 2.0.

    I do! I did actually, and started drawing up the plans for it. Now for sure I do.
    I love the wilderness and I love my trail cameras, all Fuji's! :) GA645, GW690 III, and the X100 which I think is the best trail camera ever invented (to date).

    I've been wondering if it were possible modify a box brownie to use this paper? I am a beginner (have only developed - haven't tried any printing yet!) so not sure where to start. If it is possible - any suggestions on where I could find some info to get me started? Many thanks.
