These days I just determine exposure time via testing the digital negative, with no reference to an analog step wedge. However, if I were to do adjustments based on the UV transmission of Pictorico the correction would be closer to a full stop than 1/2 stop. A full stop would be log 0.30, about what you should measure with a UV densitometer with either the regular Pictorico or the Ultra Premium. As you can see, the measurement of about 0.25 for Pictorico (regular and same measure about the same here) is very close to one full stop.

I don't use, nor feel the need to, buy the Ultra Premium (is that the black label one?) but I do use the regular Pictorico and add 1/2 stop (by dividing the final printing time by .707). WIth your logs if I read logs correctly you are adding less than I, correct? I don't have a UV densitometer and just do it all by math and the Stouffers.

I have measured Pictorico with both an X-Rite 361T and a Gretage D200II so I am confident the density readings are reliable.
