Interesting.. If I waited until I had 35 8x10 negs, I'd be waiting a LONG time to print. It's hard for me to get out and shoot a bunch of negatives in one day around here, I've simply lost interest in this area. I use amidol for prints myself, but sadly I'm all out of AZO.. I like the idea of proofing, then taking an extended break before trying to get a real fine print, although I would say that I have never gotten one of those myself.. Really interesting guys, thanks for your responses.
