Subject: [Leica] Focomat colour exposure changes
From: "Beddoe, Neil" <>

My M6 having failed to turn me into a better photographer (I managed to kid
myself that it would), I've bought a Focomat V35 so that I can fail to turn
myself into a better printer. I've yet to do any printing with it as the
lens is at Leica UK having its internal fungus removed (does every Focotar
have floral display on one of the internal elements?).

I've trawled the web, but I can't find anything about the changes in
exposure required when changing B&W grades using the colour head, I've got
the settings required but no idea of how these will affect exposure.  Does
anyone know where I might get figures for exposure changes using the V35
with Ilford Multigrade IV paper?  I've got the option to buy a multigrade
head and I wanted to know whether it was worth it.


PS.   My spell checker suggests "Forcemeat" instead of "Focomat",  I think I
might start using that instead.
