Concern about the effect of increased radiation levels on photographic image quality and the stability of film was voiced in Minneapolis last June at the Society of Photographic Scientists and Engineers' 39th annual meeting. In response to questions about potential harm to European film manufacturing from April’s Chernobyl nuclear accident, A.F. Sowinski of Kodak said, "We can anticipate enhanced rates of film aging in Europe.

You’ve just come back from a trip abroad, carrying some off-brand color film, and you don't know who can process it. Vexing, isn’t it? Had you saved the mailers that accompany film purchased with processing included, or saved the boxes and instruction sheets from film bought without processing, you would not need to read this opus.

Carl Purcell
The world is a new and wonderful place when seen from above, and some photographers even make their careers as aerial specialists. But picture taking from the air does not require professional knowledge and equipment—in fact, standard 35-mm SLR can produce outstanding aerial views when used carefully and correctly.

Don't stop with "standard" stabilization processing—try these oddball ideas
One great idea: Try regular fiber-base enlarging papers for stabilization
STABILIZATION WITH FIBER-BASE PAPERS
On, now, to another oddball approach: use of two activators in the machine
Other points worth mentioning:

Cora Wright Kennedy
Did I lure you last month? Were you entranced by the idea of almost-instant printing, where a damp-dry, black-and-white print (up to 11×14) emerges from a stabilization processor in 30 seconds or less? Or have you already tried stabilization processing and now find yourself eager to explore further?

Many contemporary photographers seem to view the world as raw material that can be manipulated to produce expressions of their individual personalities. Photographers of the 19th century would scarcely understand this goal—their concern was to show what things actually looked like, which is ambition enough given the newness of the medium and its myriad difficulties.

Howard Chapnick
Harvey Stein is not the only master of photojournalistic portraiture. But his latest book, Artists Observed, published this year by Harry N. Abrams, shows us the very finest work possible in that genre. Stein’s unique synthesis of the craft of photojournalism and the art of portraiture provides rare and revealing insights into the world of the contemporary American artist.

The shape and feel of the Canon T90 impressed me: Its contoured grip seemed to snuggle into my right hand, and the controls in back proved easy to reach and operate. (At least that was the case for right-handed people; some lefties may find this camera difficult to grasp.)

This lens is a one-touch zoom that uses 14 elements in 11 groups that are divided into four sections. In optical power, the sections are (from front to rear) positive, negative, positive, and negative. While zooming, the first and third sections move in tandem, with linear forward motion to increase focal length.

Russell Hart
Among the arsenal of special effects available to black-and-white printers is solarization, a technique that yields prints with reversed tones, glowing outlines of form, and a mysterious, even surreal sense of time and place. In fact, Man Ray, a French photographer well known for his involvement with the Surrealist movement early in this century, used solarization to produce striking portraits of his fellow artists and made studies in which his subjects were described by bold outlines emerging from a dreamlike fog.

Two new black-and-white films not yet announced to the public exploit technology derived from color film to provide significant gains in brilliance, grain, gradation, and sharpness. It is expected that these films will soon replace the current Tri-X and Plus-X, and possibly lead to the demise of Panatomic-X.

Beseler 8×10 drum
$26.50
Beseler’s drum processors are smaller in diameter than most, and as a result they require less chemicals per print (1.5 ounces per 8×10 print). A nice feature of the Beseler drum is that both the top and bottom can be removed to allow for better cleaning; however, the top cap doesn’t come apart completely. A long chemical trough in the bottom cap holds the chemicals away from the paper until you start the agitation cycle. This design helps to prevent staining and streaking on prints. The Beseler Deluxe Motor Base rotates in both directions. It is the onlymodel with a built-in leveling foot, which makes it easy to keep a necessary even keel on any surface. The Beseler 8×10 drum is priced at $26.50, the Deluxe Motor Base at $108.50. (Note: These and all other prices in this column are suggested retail price.) For more information, contact: Beseler Photo Marketing Co., Inc., 8 Fernwood Rd., Florham Park, NJ 07932.

Ilford’s motor base
$19.25
Ilford’s Cibachrome Processing Drum system consists of a 4×5, 8×10, 11×14, and 16×20 drum. The 4×5 size can be used for test prints (as well as small prints), but I have found that for critical work with any processor it’s best to do tests in the same size drum in which you make the final print. Ilford drums are designed to be held vertically when the chemicals are poured in. The end cap forms a funnel, and a built-in cup holds chemicals away from the paper until the drum is turned to a horizontal position. Old chemicals drain out the bottom cap while you pour the new ones into the top. Ilford’s motor base is a low-voltage unit with longer accessory rods available to handle even the largest drums. The 8×10 Ilford drum, which works with three ounces of chemicals, costs $19.25; the motor base costs $69.95. Information: Ilford, Inc., W. 70 Century Rd., Paramus, NJ 07653.
Beseler Photo Marketing Co., Inc.
CPE 2 starter system
$385
This complete processing system consists of a temperature-controlled water bath, a dual-speed reversing motorized agitator, and a Model 1526 dual-purpose film and print processing drum. The temperature-control bath keeps the temperature of the drum constant and maintains the temperature of the chemicals in their storage bottles. The four print drums, ranging in size from 3.5×5 to 11×14, use Jobo’s new cap locking system—the best I’ve used. The 8×10 drum requires 1.7 ounces of chemicals for each step. The Jobo motorized agitation system is unique. A large magnet, built into the drum base, works in conjunction with a corresponding magnet driven by an electric motor—this effectively locks the drum to the motor. In addition to the CPE 2, Jobo makes the CPA 2 and CPP 2 processors. Both models will handle prints up to 20×24. The main difference between the two is the sophistication of their temperature-control systems. The CPP 2 has a digital display of the actual processing temperature, while the CPA 2 allows you to set the desired temperature and then check it with a separate thermometer. All Jobo processors utilize a "Lift" system—with the lift in place, all filling and draining of solutions can be done without touching the drums. While the drum rotates, chemicals are poured into the lifts and then automatically flow into the drum. At the end of each processing step, you pull a lever, the drum rises, and the chemicals drain into a storage container or down the drain. The 8×10 Jobo drum costs $29.95 (which includes one film-processing reel); a complete CPE 2 starter system is $385. A CPP 2 without accessories is $1,045. Information: Jobo Fototechnic, Inc., 416 W. Huron St., Ann Arbor, MI 48103.

Paterson Auto Colortherm
$375
The Paterson Auto Colortherm is sold as a complete color and black-and-white processing system. It consists of a temperature-controlled water bath with a built-in motorized agitator, and 8×10 and 12×16 print-processing tubes. The 8×10 drum uses 2.5 ounces of chemicals. The drums rotate in one direction at a single speed. A removable funnel makes it possible to pour the processing chemicals into the drum while it’s rotating. Film processing can also be done easily with this system. However, agitation is manual (as with most brands of film processing drums), although you can use the system’s water bath for temperature control. The Paterson Auto Colortherm is sold only as a complete unit with a suggested retail price of $375. Information: GMI Photographic, Inc., 1776 New Highway, Farmingdale, NY 11735. Next month, I’ll take a look at five of the more unusual color print processors as we continue our survey of drums, trays, and tubes.
Larry Sribnick
Last month I covered questions you might ask when considering a color-print processing system. Let’s take a look at some of the systems on the market today.

Norman Goldberg
One of our routine camera tests is the measurement of time lag, that is, the interval between the first pressure on the trip button and the beginning of exposure. I've been studying this camera characteristic for quite a while and am sad to report that time lag has been increasing as cameras get more sophisticated.
