Studiocarter,
I will process them in a spiral tank and would like to do reversal to positive. I understand that leaving it negative can be more successful with very old film.
I watched a lot of your Utube samples. Interesting and detailed. Your projector is quite noisy though.
When you say D-76 gives soft reverses, do you mean low contrast or low picture sharpness?
D-76 is lower contrast unless measures are taken, heat, agitation... Reversing gives the greater sharpness, though with old film it might be harder to do? I use new film now.
Michael
