only lengthy stays and greater volume. As well, 7
trays in my compact lab?
I use 2 trays, one for processing a second for hold. The
2 together are used for alternate tray washes. Very
dilute solutions make good use of the chemistry.
Similar to one-shot rotary processing.
Proofing is an exception to split processing. This evening
I'll proof a negative full frame 2up on 5x7, two sheets, then
print 1up 5x7, two sheets. Exposure will be determined using
the four 2up test exposures.
After that and an evaluation of the two 5x7s four more
5x7s will be made for day after processing. If the negative
is good to go larger that will follow. I use an EM-10 for
same exposure with change in size. The EM-10 value
is determined at the 5x7 size. Dan
