I need some input
from you folks if you can.
I bought some un-opened Kodak Panalure II RC 8x10 of an ebayer. Can't remember what the exp. date is on it.
Anyway, I'm rather new to DR printing, but have been kind of holding my own, until today.
I'm using Arista as my developer BTW.
I can't get a good print so far from this paper. I did read on the paperwork that came with it, and it mentioned having a Kodak Yellow Safelight.
But even loading up the paper in pitch black, and a 2 second exposure at f45, it comes out over exposed and/or dark/muddy.
Chemicals were fresh. Just made today.
I stopped until I can figure this out, with some help.
Do I have to have a different type of developer for this paper? The insert within the package also mentioned that developer is also mixed in with the emulsion, if that makes any sense to anyone.
My first test wedge strips came out all black even at 5 second exposures. I did see here on page 2 under light source, http://www.kodak.com/global/en/profe...bs/g27/g27.pdf
that I need tungsten light source, which all I have right now is just a household light bulb. Even my white border around the print is greyish.
Think I just found my answer.
