    Nice shot sly, I have been considering using Selectol Soft developer for the DPP to control the contrast of unflashed paper.

    It was used in the past to give about a half grade reduction in contrast. The DPP is suppose to be about grade 3, so 2 1/2 may be ok.

    Well I've experimented with preflashing DPP. I printed old lantern slides on it last winter, and had done lots of testing to find a preflash that brought down the contrast just enough. My first test was grossly over-exposed, so more testing gave me an ISO of 12 to work with. Didn't get anything I was happy about. High contrast sunny scenes were still lacking detail in the high and low values, while scenes with lower contrast just turned out muddy. I like the idea of DPP, as life has been giving me only snippets of time for photography lately. Expose, run the paper quickly through developer, stop, fix, and wash - ta da! Finished print! Quick, but not so great if I can't get something I want to keep. I'm sure with more experimentation and lots more time, I could get there, but I'm too busy and impatient (and almost out of DPP). I shot a few negs and developed today. I've posted a flatbed scan of one in the gallery. There's more detail in the highlights than the scan will pick up, and I'm excited about printing it, when time allows.
    I've got a few days off coming up, so I'll have a bit more time for photography play. I'll try to ignore the garden -it's been screaming for attention for weeks now.

    Other options for the titan 4x5

    Simon,
    I sent a query to Ilford about the longer 110 and 150 cones. No reply. Are they for sale yet?

    BTW, I love the little beasty, took some HP5 exposures of the famous Taos N. M. church Adams and Strand photographed years ago. Still need to develop them.

    Thanks,
    Howard

    I ordered the 110 cone some months ago, and finally took delivery 2 weeks ago, so they are available. I do like the perspective, wide but not too wide. Great to have a choice.

    a couple of cyanotypes from negatives, which I have made using the 8x10 Titan. Film was FP4+, exposures in the 30-45s range.

    Especially like the first one, Fred!

    Not using mine right now. Will get back to it when my cast comes off in September.

    thanks, I also like it myself, I thought it was a need trick, in that there is no trace if the tripod and camera itself in the picture, though its a glass and steel building façade.

    Hi FredW,

    Nice work with the 8x10 camera, I just wanted to say something about your cyanotype negatives: I think your negatives are a little thin for cyanotype, because the contrast is somehow lower than what you should normally get. What film / developer / development time combination was that? Cyanotype usually needs something like 1.5-2x the development time compared standard silver gelatin...

    Regards,
    Loris.
