    Centennial POP, and when I have to the last of my Azo.

    I have not had any luck with Kentona; too contrasty for my negatives. I also had a bunch of it turn a nasty yellowish brown last time I used it.

    I am using Oriental seagull with Ansco 130. I also use Azo F2 (for my 8x20's)with different dilutions of Ansco 130. Stock usually makes the print too contrasty so I dilute to get the contrast to what I want. I'm also Pd/Pt printing again and find the paper problem exist there too. So I have plenty of avenues to go till Michael can work things out. Remember he has to make a living too. So taking time for this paper has to take a back seat sometimes.

    Yellow happened to me too, it was truly disheartening after a lot of darkroom work. You can dilute your developer to achieve a lower contrast in the paper, however, or use water bath. I use Ansco-130 at 1+2 for normal contrast and 1+3 for lower contrast and slightly warmer. Works well.

    500+500+500+500+500=2500 sheets of Azo left, a special project or save for later, eBay or waste off? 2500 sheets would be equal to how many 4x5 or 5x7 contact prints? What about wallet size? It would be a good way to waste off the Amidol that I have been hoarding too.

    Good luck Michael with the new paper.

    Ebay - take the money, put it in the bank, and retire early.

    I can tell you from direct first hand experience that Michael always finds time to keep advancing Project Lomida concurrent with his regular work load. Technological advances such as mobile phones and portable computers assisgn greatly in this regard wherever their travels may take them.

    It is a very complex logistically challenging endevor, but I like his chances.

    Cheers!

    I think it is great what Michael is doing and don't know him at all, but do know how dedicated he is from his forum and books of his I've seen. I assume he will succeed and we will have a new contact printing paper that exceeds our expectations!
