      Kind of soft - what do you think is the cause?

      Fx4 is an odd formula, on the one hand it is supposed to be high acutance with increased film speed but 100g sodium sulfite dissolves a lot of silver, which seems to oppose that point. I think the images seem to show this conundrum. This may be more of an issue with higher speed films perhaps. I would knock back exposure and/or dev time and see how it looks.

      YES -- thanks for Comment-- I think it is the 1961 Formula I used with more Phenidone and less Hydroquinone ( which is the 'Contrast' developing agent). Next 'Mix' I will try the later version ! ( Keeps me BUSY and mind off Hospital Appointments ! )
    There are no comments to display.
