Taking up the 'Old FP3 Challenge'

Post by pentaxpete » Sun Dec 22, 2019 12:48 pm

I was sent a cassette of October 1952 Ilford FP3 to see what I could get out of it. I did a short length test first and found it was 10 ASA. I used Crawley's Formula FX-4 1974 version 1+1 for 9 mins @ 20oC but it was over-developed so CUT time to 7 mins for following tests. I also tried 'Acutol-S FX-15 1+1 Formula' you can see the results and story here :
