After I finish restoring my view camera, I needed an inexpensive way to check it out. I bought, Some 4x5 Arista EDU 100 ASA film. A bottle of mono developer. I have taken a number of photos and I am relearning light meter reading and such. To print the negatives I use the scanner portion of my HP Photosmart printer with an exterior light source. Then post process them with Gimp and have made a few decent B&W photo. I am please to say my 1910 camera does it part. However, the histograms of the negatives show very little tonal range latitude, this is also true with some older negatives I had prior to digital cameras. That said, the histograms of the digital photos I shoot on the monochrome setting have much more tonal latitude and require less post processing. So the question is, does film have less tonal range than digital or am I suffering the effects of the digital to film conversion? Here are a couple of my first 4x5 photo process as mentioned above.
