Cracked open a box of Luminos Flexicon Doubleweight FB and am looking at the data sheet. . .

Washing
The fixed prints should be washed in running water for 3-4 minutes.

? Did they accidently print the back side of the sheet with the RC paper data or something? I've never read of any fiber base paper stating less then 20 minutes of wash, let alone 3.

Easily done but can you get auto focus for a 4x5 Format? LOL :D

Well. Wash time that quick isn't all the special anyways. I just throw them in when ready, and come back later after makeing more prints to remove them so they'll get 20 minutes+ of wash regardless.

However, part of why I thought maybe they half printed (actually, looks more photocopied) the datasheet, was that it said typical development times are 60-90 seconds. The Luminos RC that took 90-135 seconds when I used it, and all the other fiber I ever used was only starting to show an image after 60-90 seconds. But alas, I'm finding that 60-90 seconds in the same Ethol LPD 1:4 that I've always been using is giving me fully developed very nice looking images, and that makes me happpy. I like this stuff. :smile:
