    Darkest 120 paper markings?

    As the recent purchaser of a wooden 120 pinhole camera, this is the first time I have been faced with looking through the red window on the back of the camera to see the markings on 120 backing paper. It seems to me that Ilford markings are not bold enough for my eyesight and I was wondering if other films have stronger markings?

    Thanks Peter

    I just had a quick check. Ilford numbers are grey, for sure. Fuji numbers are black, so they should work better for you.

    Thanks Kevin, I have plenty Acros available and it was going to be my next attempt due to better reciprocity figures than FP4+/HP5+, so I'm pleased to know it wiill make life easier!

    All the best, Peter

    No problem, Peter. Actually I was surprised the Ilford numbers are grey. I assumed they would be black.

    Try T-MAX, Dark numbers on a white background. Reciprocity is excellent

    Fomapan numbers are bright white on a black background and I find them very easy to see in any of my Red window cameras
