Updates to three of my B&W – Capture One -styles: DoubleA, DoubleX and Panchromatic 2238 film

I really hate to see mistakes I have made in my styles. These corrections concern certain gradations that weren’t working right in my previous versions. But the problems I later found are now corrected in these iterations. The corrections do change the luminosity of certain colors more unintentionally than on purpose, but without these changes the gradations would not work smoothly.

First correction was made to my Eastman DoubleX Capture style. This style is mimicking the look of Eastman DoubleX B&W cinema film. There are some compromises in the luminosity of the colors and the overall look including contrast is based most closely with the examples I have seen developed with D96 developer. You can download the corrected style here.

Second one to get similar correction was the DoubleA -style, that is more analogous looking version of DoubleX. Between these looks I usually like this style more than the DoubleX, but the looks are actually quite different and I see them both in their own ways very tempting to use. You can download the corrected style here.

Third B&W style that I decided to update at the same time is the style based on the Kodak Panchromatic Color Separation 2238 film. This style deviates quite a lot from the DoubleX and DoubleA. This has been more of a study for me than a useful style, but it never is bad to have choices available. You can download the corrected style here.
