Topic: Eric's E-61 temp adaptor > was: Flush-n-go vs flush-n-wait (38 lines)
1) From: Frank Cascarano
I have been waiting on getting Eric's E-61 temp adaptor due to aesthetics (I
didn't want wires hanging from the front of my nice machine).  Is there a
better option now or is the convenience and control worth it?
Thanks,
Frank

Having used a Silvia sans PID for 2&1/2 years then another year with PID
before upgrading IF surf and wait was the only viable HX temp management
method I NEVER would have gotten the Bricoletta. No way in Hades was I
reverting to counting and waiting to pull shots EVER again!!! 
OTH flush-n-go method is quite different than having to sit and up count
waiting to pull a shot every time. IE flush to end of flash which will be
about 206f then addition one one-thousand count(s) each lowering ~1f to
desired temp and immediately lock and pull. This is after HX cooling flush
from idle, but only when from idle. Doing a series of shots simply
flush-n-go for each shot after the first. Oh, and with Eric's E-61 temp
adapter no longer even have to listen for the flash or count so no longer a
hassle entertaining and talking and pulling shots and attempting to
simultaneously listen to the flash then count, just flush watching the
displayed temp lock and pull.
