Arrrghhh...exactly, you develop for the type of enlarger, all current commercial densitometers are of the diffuse type, they all measure diffuse light. Again, if you want a densitometer that will measure specular light similar to a collimated condenser enlarger you would have to MAKE one.......I never said you have to adjust developing time to a densitometer, I said there are no densitometers which measure specular light similar to a condenser enlarger.
