There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Provide for ES values of up 2.4 for alt pro work.

    My current cyanotype sensitizer has an ES of 1.9

      The base ES value that shows in ExpoDev is actually set by the film test analysis in Plotter. In Plotter you can set ES values up to 2.0. In order for them to show in ExpoDev, you then need to export that film test and load it into ExpoDev. Ideally you would have separate film profiles in ExpoDev for the different ranges of papers you wish to print on.

      Occasionally I notice typos in my records once they have been saved but there is no way to reopen the record to make changes and edit.

      • Allow multiple filters to be entered, such as a #12 plus a polarizer, combining their filter factors.

        To do this currently one has to create a fake filter that has a filter factor combining the two.

        • Attach iPhone photo of scene to record to allow easier referencing of exposure data back to the processed negative

          While notes are great for describing the image and exposure, an iPhone photo would be additionally help. This is especially useful for a newbie like me in learning what I may have done wrong.

          • Lumu and/or Luxi Support

            Add support for either of two incident light meter attachments available for the iPhone (Luxi now shipping and Lumu with 1272 Kickstarter backers.) It would be amazing if the Lo EV and Hi EV auto filled from the meter so users don't have to toggle between two applications.
            I think it would truly be the first BTZS light meter. Phil Davis wouldn't believe how far the community has taken all his hard work and made it so user friendly.

            • Phone goes to sleep with long timed exposures

              When using the timer for very long exposures, the phone can go to sleep if I don't occasionally touch the screen to keep it awake. If possible it would be useful to block the sleep function when using the timer.

              • EV Data

                Have the EV reading from the last entry stay when opening a new exposure instead of starting at zero. Under the same lighting conditions this would speed up multiple exposure recording.

                      Something will happen on this front but I am planning on an online backup solution like Dropbox/SkyDrive/GDrive rather than email. This way exposure records can be backed up, archived, re-loaded, etc… it would also facilitate future off-device PC/Mac viewing & printing.

                        • A way to create new exposures using the last used values

                          This would be a quick way to make a similar or duplicate exposures

                            • Expanded exposure record notes

                              It would be cool to be able to take scene reference pictures and metering point notes. Perhaps you could even place spot metering annotations directly on the reference pictures.

                              • A companion app to manage darkroom development timing

                                It would be cool to have an app that could read ExpoDev's exposure records and function as a multi-timer for negative development.
