With that knowledge I also know there is NO reason that the final consumer cannot do just that as well. Measure out a volume of mixed powder and then mix it with water to make the developing solution.
Yep, that works fine as long as the powder is well mixed before you sample. (The heavier components tend to settle to the bottom.) Once the original envelope is opened, the challenge is to protect the powder from moisture between sessions.

If you really want to do one-shot, mixed at time of use, I suggest HC-110 using a small syringe to measure.

Nice! I saw an Ultron 28mm in LTM for sale the other day ago and was curious about performance. Now I know

A pic of my Oly 35RC, shot on paper negative, with two flash bursts with my Burke&James 2x3 press camera.

The LTM and M Ultrons aren't quite the same, although I've heard great things about the screw-mount version!

Some photos of the Halifax-Dartmouth Ferry. These were shot with either an MX or a Super program with either CV 40 f2, smc-m 20 f4 or an smc-m 50 f1.7

Brings back memories. I used to live in Halifax and (briefly) in Dartmouth. Is that the Bluenose II through the window?

Really miss my FA*24...

Here's a snap from the M20/4:


Very nice. I just picked the M20/4 up a couple months back and haven't put it through too many paces yet, though happy with the few I've shot. I should get it out.

No, the tall ship through the window is the Mar or the Silva, one of the tour boats. It usually 'sails' around the harbour with its sails down on motor power. I did not make it down to see the Bluenose II when it came to Halifax.

As for the 20 f4 I am still on the fence about how wide it is. I feel that it is too wide for me and that I might prefer a 24 or a 28mm instead, but I have decided I need to give it some time and see if grows on me. It is certainly cool to have such a wide lens for certain shots.

Shot and processed today with Burke&James 2x3 Press with a schneider 135mm f:16 1/8 sec on Arista EDU 100 cut from 4x5 sheet.
Processed in D-76 1+4 (approx) for 18 minutes.



What I found amazing is that the first film was horrendously over exposed. I left the lens open after focusing and pulled the dark slide, the aperture was at f16, and the exposure was likely 4 - 6 seconds before I got the shutter closed.
In the 1+4 soup, I got an image.

Was my thinking as well for quite some time. I just sold my Soligor 20/2.8 to another forum member. The M20/4 is certainly not as fast but sharper and lighter/smaller (and the Soligor I would already consider small and light).... So small that I don't think much about tossing it in a bag just in case, and really, when I'm shooting that wide, fast isn't something I find I care too much about. Definitely a lot of lens in such a tiny package.

The M20 certainly is pretty incredible given its size. When I think about it, I do enjoy many of the photos I have taken with it on film. I am not wild about it on a digital camera though. Not sure why. I think it may be the short focus throw for the equivalent 30 mm focal length. I have just finished a roll where I forced myself to use only the 20 mm. Hopefully I will get it developped soon.

Here are some pictures of the bridge that spans Dartmouth to Halifax. I used to bike across for work but now they are redoing the decking and they have removed the bike lane for 18 months. These were shot with either an MX and FP4 or a super program and HP5. As for lenses the CV 40 f2 and maybe the M50 f1.7.
