    All you young whippersnappers with too much money! What's wrong the good old hourglass? 0 carbon footprint, doesn't break down, somewhat reliable, depending on humidity etc., and they come in unlimited sizes and colors!

    I like that idea! (For now)

    Are they available in f-stop increments.

    Hourglass?! You techno-freak! Use a stick and a few marks on the ground and go solar! A sun dial is all you need!

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I use the table on Ralph Lambrecht's wonderful website and book, and appreciate it greatly. I think that if you start using that, and find that it suits your approach, that you will likely really benefit from an f/stop timer (either brand)

    I was looking at buying a DA timer rather than an RH Designs product (due to shipping costs, initial price, and similar financial concerns), but I ended up picking up an Omega D6 enlarger with an Ilford Multigrade 400 head and controller from Craigslist instead. I sure wish there was an interface or adapter.

    I don't think it can because the light source has to be turned on by the integrated controller/timer in a closed loop process.

    A vote for RH Designs Ilford 500 timer, but I DO use Ralph's tables for split grade printing when using the same head and the Ilford controller for contact printing only, which makes for a fairly simple roundabout f- stop procedure, however one which usually costs more paper than the RH Analyser Pro for projection printing.

    A marginal thought: when I purchased the RH Analyser Pro I had some thought of the possibility of the Ilford controller deciding to die one day and leave the whole setup useless.

    Regards - Ross

    Goodness gracious, people. The light source comes from above through the hole you've cut in the ceiling! As for the 'darkroom' aspect of which Richard speaks, I understand there is a period during rotation when the sun is not visible. For those overdeveloped negatives moonlight is the perfect source!

    On the topic of modern conveniences, I'll observe that Google does conversions as well. e.g. try searching for "10 GBP in USD". For Firefox users, know that you can jump straight to the search box via Ctrl-k (win)/Cmd-k (mac).
