    I'd suggest not boxing yourself in too much with things like MTMB, which is a difficult thing to get right anyway. Depending on what kind of contrast you are aiming for in an image, you may choose give extra exposure to the negative, etc.

    Why ask a question like yours on a forum devoted to film photography?

    How about a Beseler C23 III with color dichronic head.

    As I remember the numbers for Magenta and Yellow were in the 60-80 range. Cyan 0. It's been a while though. Age and use affect filters so that doesn't mean you'll be close with these. My Saunders is set at Cyan 0, Magenta 125, Yellow 160 right now.

    The numbers are also affected by the film stock you use and any developing idiosyncrasies you may have. You'll have numbers for each film you use when you are done.

    I use a standard sun-lit scene as my baseline. You need to find numbers that get you a "fully corrected" print once.

    Google - beseler subtractive color - these "calculators" are a good tool for finding baseline correction numbers and exposure times within a couple test prints. Generally available on E-bay.

    Also http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from...lter+&_sacat=0

    Once you find your baseline it's not as hard as it sounds and close is good enough for a proof.

    Waste of time in my opinion. On supreme advantage of film over digital is the fact that the interim process has a clearly visible image. A light source and magnifier are the gold standard of negative analysis.

    Why convert your film to an arbitrarily ordered series of charges, invisible to the human eye, and then convert that into some colored lights or spraypaint in order to see it.
