Re: Anyone tried the new 'Promicrol'?

So sad to read Kenny -- I was an 'only Child' so never knew about Brothers or Sisters -- I was always a bit 'lonely' but got used to it -- lived on my own for 10 years from 1973 -83 when my first marriage broke up -- coming home to a cold dark house with my Chinese Take-away meal --

Re: Finally had it with Pyro.

Kenny E I follow your writings with great interest as i love making up my own developers and have some 'Glycin' in a small bottle in my cupboard in my darkroom so must have a look soon to see what 'colour' it is ! I have also made up Kodak DK50 to the formula and used it 1+1 as I read it has a low ...

Re: FX37 activity

Keith -- Here are some Delta 100 shots from my MINOX 35GT with 7 mins development in FX37 1+3 dilution and they were not so dense -- I have done a 16x12" Exhibition print from this one for my Club. http://www.flickr.com/photos/25850987@N03/8019008437/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/25850987@N03/801900...

Re: FX37 activity

Keith -- you have 'sharp eyes' !! -- but I'm sure it was a typing error as I take 70mls of FX37 and make up to 280mls with water for a 120 film in my Paterson Major II (Old model) -- Peter

FX37 activity

Does the Crawley Formula FX37 INCREASE in activity on storage similar to some other developers ? I mixed up some FX37 some weeks ago and did some 35mm Ilford Delta 100 outdated in it and got some good negs at 7 mins so I used some outadted Delta 100 120 size when we had some heavy frost here in Esse...

Re: developer not listed

Yes, your results are good -- but if it is a 'HOMEBREW SOUP' why is the FORMULA not publshed so we can make it up ourselves instead of having to go to a Spanish site and BUY it ?

Re: Pushing Delta 3200

You had some 'Heavy Water' once in your country made by the Germans -- if you get it out of the lake where it was sunk I bet you could use that to develop your film !

Strange 'micro-bubbles' on film

I developed a Fuji Neopan 400 120 for a friend today; usually I have no trouble with strange things happening in various developers I have used, such as Tetenal Neopress HC 1+31, Promicrol 1+14, and my home-made Acutol S (FX15 Formula) 1+1 or 1+3 but today I used the FX15 1+1 and found the back of t...
