Re: Kodak BW400CN.

I have used XP2 Super before out of curiosity, but it's not to my liking. There are some people who like it though.

I much prefer regular films like FP4, HP5 and Tri-X.

No they are not the same, DV10 is for developing papers and FD10 is for developing films.

Re: Acid type Rapid Fixers - request recommendation

Any rapid-fixer from a renowned manufacturer will do, eg; Ilford Hypam/Rapid Fixer, or Kodak equivalent.

The Wellington Photographic Handbook

Here is a link to a handbook which contains a Borax MQ developer formula that predates Kodak D-76 and it's many copies and variants.
Those who like to experiment with photographic developers may find this publication of interest.

When is the product to be available? I don't see it on the Adox web site.

Re: Adox FX-39

Perhaps Adox will market this product better than Paterson. You may also find the Spur range of developers of interest as well. These like the Paterson developers appear to be somewhat more specialized than the regular general use fine-grain developers like D-76/ID-11. Have a look at Bruce Robbins s...

Re: Rollie IR400 Reciprocity

It's something you will have to experiment with and bracket the exposures to find out.
I have never heard of the developer. Sorry if that's not much help.
