  3. Something new. I have noticed that my favorite source of 120 films seems to be lagging as to restocking their wares, so I have begun a "search" for new emulsions should they bale from the business.
    CatLabs has REALLY bombarded the media about their latest product, so I ordered 2k20-072-010 ces13 bc bm.jpg a single roll of 120 material to "test drive". Here is a frame from that roll, used in my Agfa Isolette 3 (85mm Apotar). G filter with +1.5 f stop compensation. Weston 853 meter was set for 80 asa per CatLabs. Developing was with 3.0ml of Hypercat in a 450ml Nikor tank for 13 minutes. V600 scan. I found this single roll a bit thin in the shadow areas but believe with a little more exposure and reducing the development, my negs will fall right into my Zone System values. More to follow. Aloha, Bill

  4. Next on the test list was a 120 roll of Arista.EDU, 100asa material. Again, the Agfa 3, W853 (@80asa) & Hypercat developing for 13m. Exposure was right on but a multitude of emulsion defects that require a heavy dose of editing 2k20-073-003 ces13 x bc bm.jpg will keep this film out of the "bucket" list. I have tested this emulsion offering yearly and still find the same manufacturing defects unchanged. Rolls of the 200 and 400 material still await testing.
    Aloha, Bill

    Hasselblad 501CM. Looking at the shots on this thread, there is something compelling there that just isn't there in digital work. Wish I still had that camera!
  7. Thanks, Peter!

    Indeed. When I saw those photographs I thought it was something out of the props for Saving Private Ryan, until I Googled the place and... well, I have no words as to the horror — quite jarring and a ghastly reminder of the brutality of war long ago.

  16. During my film tests, I tend to use the same "subjects". Here the house across the street, which also appears in the top of this thread. This time I am using Arista EDU 200 material. Same Isolette 3, Weston 853 meter (asa @ 160 ) and a G filter with + 1.5f compensation. The developer has been changed to Pyrocat HDC from the Hypercat. . . that bottle ran dry. V600 scan. Film densities came out spot on for my Zone System type of work.This film had a few emulsion "defects", but nothing on the order of the EDU 100 material from the previous posting.
