I did not obtain this book yet (due to costs), but reading other books by Hunt had made me place this one on my wish list.
It would be great if it revealed more than what presented here so far.
I've posted this before, but perhaps it was overlooked.
The entire composition of a color negative film is disclosed in USP 5,302,499.
It includes structures of couplers, amounts, the works!
I tried in vain to read the full text at google, did not show up...
Will it reveal why each layer is placed where it is, and its function?
For learning purposes it will be far more informative to get to know what intention is behind any structure rather than just getting to know how something is structured.
This patent gives no tutorial. It assumes you 'know' things and are 'skilled in the art'. Sorry.
That is where I got my copy.
thankyou so much for the summaries and book references!
I've got a basic description in a book at home (Australia) but I'm sort of just pondering a few things and thought I'd like to munch on a discussion of the details.
Such things as (if I recall right) the arrangement of layers not being optimal for the spectral spread and how each layer interferes with the next.
Certainly this stuff is the result of extraordinary thinking and research.
sadly I do 90% of my own work in black and white so I miss out on the advantages ;-)
: you understand why it should work but it doesn't
: it works but you have no idea how
Here theory and practice meet, things don't work and I don't know why
