    Martin – check out the Massive Dev Chart application at http://www.digitaltruth.com/devchart.php It is a great app for calculating different times and dilutions.

      Hi Tony,

      Wow! That’s witchcraft!! 🙂

      It looks very interesting, and probably great if just developing the film is the goal. Personally, I wanted to learn how to do this, and so I’ll stick with my current process for a while. Monobath looks so easy it would take much of the “fun” out of the process for me at this point. 🙂

      Thanks for sharing the links though. I’ll keep this in mind for the future, and I’m sure it will be useful for others too.

      Cheers,
      Martin.

        Yes, I see your point. The process is almost meditative….also comes with great satisfaction. I haven’t processed film in 35 years or so…unfortunately I only have around 5 or 6 prints from that time. Misplaced all the negatives. I am still checking for a used Bronica or Mamiya.

        Take Care

        Tony
