Darkroom was packed up into too many boxes.. started to go thru them a couple of months back.. whistfully.
As aside; (Dunno about later Models).. but F's ..Require a slightly differing Voltage meter battery than what is easily available .
Wrong batteries messed readings and exposures for a while... before I discovered a usable substitute.
Currently only mfg'd in Germany, pricey but essential, I stocked up.
Discovered that Digital Prints (black and white) are basically lifeless imitations.
Sales kids claim otherwise . Bollocks ! Imo they simply don't have any reference points.
Have you found anything even approximating a well printed B&W??
Or If there is anything resembling AGFA paper?
My audio bits: Thorens / diy phono, CD/dvd player(s), diy pre, F6, Tannoy Golds in my boxes / my xovers, and of course all strung together with basic diy Wires
Lots of Cd's, yet more audio files, a couple of hundred semi worn Lps.
