Using a condenser light source. 
Dr. Elliot Puritz  16:11 26 Feb 12 
I have posted the same information on a few of the other forums. Please excuse the redundancy, but I wanted to elicit the maximum number of responses!

I have a considerable number of film curves done with 4x5 sheet film and drawn on plotter assuming that a diffusion light source is used. I have tested my commonly used papers as well, but testing on a step wedge with a diffusion light source. I am curious: Can the same film data be used BUT the parameters in plotter changed so that plotter can furnish reliable exposure and development information for a POINT source ( condenser head )in ExpoDev? Of course, the film has to be developed to a certain, the same question obtains regarding the paper-or will the ES values be so different that the data used for a diffusion head will be unusable? I will pose the same questions on a few other forums. Thanks for helping.

Incidentally, does anyone think that enlarments made with a condenser enlarger ( 4x5 to 8x10 or 11x14-most often the former ) are any "better ( sharper, more contrasty, anything!? ) then those made with the more usual diffusion enlarger?

Unfortunately...little action on the BTZS site....oh well.
