    John,

    That's what I like about you. That you are multitalented as well as being ambidextrous...whatta guy!!! One of these days I want to be just like you...Is that possible, do you think?

    Thanks for this reference. I had a look and it seems a pretty good instrument. I had a look at the website but no mention of price that I could find and I note that you suggest it is more like variable contrast flashing than actual burning.

    I, for one, would like to hear more from you on your experiences of using it. Example of your prints and how they were achieved would be even better.

    I had a very difficult to print from a neg of my wife walking through a shady wood. I could get her in full detail but only at the expense of underexposing the trees and sky. Dodging her image precisely while exposing the rest correctly was near impossible.

    It seems that the dauxLite II could cope with this but looking at the website didn't give me a feel for how.

    I have written to dauxLite II for more information about stockists, price etc but anything else you can say will be very gratefully received.

    Thanks

    Don,
    The directions for use of the "Complicated Card" seems incomplete.

    Ahh a where do the batteries go? ;-)

    The bottom line is that it will let you get that last 10% what you want out of a print. I don't think it will pull off what you are describing.

    The "Order" link on the Dauxlite web page lists US stocking dealers. Calumet is one: http://www.calumetphoto.com/ctl?&ac....6;022;486;608;
    The price there is US$179.

    Thanks for that. There was a reply waiting for me today from the "contact us" on the website. I was amazed until I realised that it was still Saturday afternoon to where I sent the e-mail. Mind you that's still pretty good. I can think of a lot of U.K. sites that would have waited until Monday morning at that time on a Saturday.

    Anyway the quote was $165 u.s. but reduced to $150 u.s. if ordering more than one. Plus postage and packing for overseas of course.

    Good question. I have an old model that has a cord to plug into the timer.
    But the cord rotted and I can't figure out how to replace it, so I just wave the durn thing around regardless.

    I hear an English outfit is making one with Split Fingered L.E.D.s or something. It's all carbon-fiber and stuff.

    I'll see if one comes up on Ebay.

    I know I am sounding like a trouble maker, but I am under the impression that the Comishioner of Base Ball has outlawed Split Fingered L.E.D.s

    I PRESUME you're talking about contact printing - and not enlarging... otherwise what you're talking about is fogging... not burning in.

    The one I really like is making a reduced photocopy of the contact and cutting it out to make a really selective burn or dodge mask and then float it axially in the light 'beam' going up and down repeatedly so that the area of changed density is really diffuse. It's very accurate too. I use black spray paint to keep the mask opaque (and a bit more rigid too).
