    Beseler dichroic head for VC printing

    Does any one have the conversion info (IE X amount of yellow plus X amount of magenta to make the different grades) for a Beseler dichroic head?

    I only split grade print with mine, but I think each paper has a different response and comes with a sheet giving values for the head your using.

    I admit I'm fuzzy on this.

    I know I have seen the charts before showing different paper/enlarger combos but I can't find anything right now. I didn't think of looking in a new box of paper. Thanks.

    The forum does not support tables, so everything is shifted a little over to the left. These are the equivalencies for the Ilford filter types and their series of VC papers. Use them as if you were using the Ilford filters.



    MULTIGRADE EQUIVALENCIES
    GRADE SINGLE DUAL
    00 200Y 200Y/0M (162)
    0 90Y 90Y/0M
    ½ 70Y 78Y/5M
    1 50Y 68Y/10M
    1 ½ 30Y 49Y/23M
    2 0 41Y/32M
    2 ½ 5M 32Y/42M
    3 25M 23Y/56M
    3 ½ 50M 15Y/75M
    4 80M 6Y/102M
    4 ½ 140M 0Y/140M (150)
    5 200M 0Y/200M
    Cheers,

    Patrick

    The Ilford tables work well for me with Ilford MG papers. Here is a popular link to making your own table if the pre-packaged table is not working out. http://www.butzi.net/articles/vcce.htm

    Each package of paper should, on it's included data sheet, include a chart for filter equivalencies.
