Looks somewhat grainy to me. Probably characteristic of the film.

Re: maximum sharpnes

What combination of film and developer should I choose, to get maximum sharpnes. I've used agfa apx 100 and rodinal 1+100 and was pretty much sattisfied. Apx films are lately very hard to get so i'm thinging of getting something new. Long tonal scale is allso very important to me, fine grain too. W...

If it works, it's Foma 200 developed in the MC 2-bath formula posted earlier in this thread.
I see nothing.

Re: testing

Mike, There is nothing magical about phenidone, metol or hydroquinone in themselves, and nothing that can't be duplicated using other compounds. Pyrogallol, catechol and other staining developers work in a different way from non-staining agents, and if one knows how to exploit their characteristics...

Re: 2-bath

Keith, you're mistaken on several counts. First, not all 2-bath developer work the same way; some allow for contrast conrol, others do not. Second, there is no "inevitable" compression in midtones with all 2-bath developers. Perhaps your experience with 2-bath developers is limited to a f...

Re: testing

Mike, is it possible you're confusing glycin's traditional use in stand development with 2-bath development? I'm not at all surprised that your glycin-carbonate developers were unsatisfactory. Why would you choose that approach instead of using a proven formula, like Stoeckler's? What literature ha...

Re: 2-bath

Keith, Mike, A few failed experiments on the part of a single worker of dubious technical knowledge do not form the basis for a reliable conclusion. I will not argue that MQ or PQ developers used with standard intermittnet agitation can be perfectly adequate for the needs of most users, but I will ...

Re: mythology

The idea that 2-bath development is inherently better or worse than single bath development is pure mythology. Either approach is capable of the same results, and each has strenghths and weaknesses. If one doesn't know how to use either approach, results are sure to disappoint. Jay As you already k...

Re: Ilfosol S is stripping my film

When I develop film everything is being stripped off the film; image, manufacturer marking, I cant even see the grain. This had happened to me before and I replaced all of my chemistry (after stripping 4 rolls of vacation pics!) and development worked just fine. When it started happening again I tr...

Re: XTOL or Non-Kodak and other higher-silver content films

I teach at The School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. We have been using XTOL since the word came down about the KODAK films a year-and-a-half to two years ago. At this time I seem to recall a list of those films that did not reduce the silver content. Does anyone know where I could find such a list? ...
