    Safelight for Emaks.

    I have just bought some Emaks to try, and noticed that it requires a red safelight. I use an Ilford 902 at the moment, but also have a 906 which I use for Ortho stuff, really dark though.
    I guess my question is, can you get away with the 902, or do I need to use the 906 with this paper?
    Thanks
    Tony

    Do a test Tony but I'm sure you'll get away with a 902. It is very, very slow. 4 minute exposures at F11 are not uncommon for me.

    Emaks does NOT require a red safelight. Ditto Slavich.
    I and others this NG will attest to that. I've found that
    the usual Graded paper safelights work well without
    any problem. For myself that is yellow-ish orange.
    My darkroom has a very high level of lighting.
    Both are Graded papers. Dan

    Thanks guys, I will test with my 902, which is a great relief because I can't see a danged thing with the red.
