    LPL 7451 dichroic filter: settings?

    Hi,

    I have a LPL 7451 with dichroic filter system. I'm using the colorsetting to print variable contrast paper. What filtering setting do I need to use? Kodak or Durst?

    Does somebody have the Y en M settings for the 0 to 5 gradation without density loss?

    Kind regards

    Ivo

    You have to calibrate it for each paper you use to your environment. Try this page for a way you can do this.

    Use the Kodak numbers. The datasheets on Ilford's web site has the Y & M filtration settings; http://www.ilfordphoto.com/products/default.asp

    There is no reason to use settings for whole or half grades. Just add magenta for more contrast or yellow for less until you get what you want.

    You might also want to try the "Durst 170" table, since the magenta only goes up to 170 on that head.
