    Thanks for the development tips folks.

    Jan what is the scene exposure range for your standard development of APX25? I shot the last test roll at ISO 12 but in fact I may have been compensating for bellows draw (75mm close proximity subject) and other less calibrated factors such as my meter which is a Soligar spot meter. One thing for sure this last roll is absolutely gorgeous. I did a N, N+1, N-1 exposure with N-2 development and the exposure and development are spot on.

    Well we had a storm clearing so I headed to one of my favorite vistas. I used Jan's recipe except for ISO 12. Had a small glitch when I got distracted away from the development after the 3rd minute and didn't get back until 20 minutes elapsed! It still worked and scanned well. I was amazed. The linked image is a lowly 1800 pixel test scan in sepia. I scanned a version at 3600 and the grain was minimal. This was shot with a 210 Sironar-S on a Shen-Hao 6x17 camera. The image is protected by DigiMarc.



    The original image I thought made it through the 10 stops doesn't scan well since the mud is still in the mud. Bummer.

    Off to Big Sur for a couple of days.

    Nice pano!!

    I came across some old Agfapan 25, the predecessor of the APX25. Still shoots beautifully:

    A fellow shooter from over yonder. The detail in that shot is outrageous. Same with tone. Wow.

    That's a great camera system. I have never shot 6x6 but perhaps some day I will bite the bullet. I love the view from the top into the frame.

    If you wet print the mud neg, you might be able to control the local contrast better since optically enlarging seems to always play the nicest with the neg.

    I have about a hundred rolls of it in 120, awesome film:

    Yeah that is definitely where this one is heading. Wow you are sitting pretty with the film and I bet you got it for a song comparatively speaking. I need to get a subscription so I can take in the eye candy!

    Long exposures at Point Lobos last Thursday. I am certainly liking APX25. This roll I used a ISO 20.
