T-Max Film Zone System Calibration Update

greenspun.com : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread


I have done a Zone System calibration on TMX and TMY with D-76 (1:1) developer. I am still working on this test and will post more density data if available.

Please come and have a look and give your suggestion.

Why waste so much time on something that has been done over and over again by so many others. Do your calibrations if you believe they help you. Others have different water for mixing chemicals, different cameras & lenses. Your calibration info is only good for you and your darkroom and unless you are accurate to an extreme degree the results are only general guidelines for others. We have those at every turn and a whole raft of B&W shooters who rely on this type of thing from others and are continually looking because they won't do the basic testing on their own. If you got good and repeatable results, great. But for the most part few others will be getting the same results.

It's nice to see someone else's datapoints, but that website is way too busy.
