Has anyone heard of this Film before? How about this film developer,
I'v been using hc110 for years with consistent results,but I started wandering what other products are out there, so I just ordered his print, neg developer, and fixer. Hope I don"t regret it.L Gebhardt said:The film is rebranded FP4+. They hint at this, but I am sure they are not allowed to outright say so. The developer is one that I have tested, though I am not sure I see anything great about it. It has a very lumpy curve, which I find odd. The actual images I made with it were not bad, but I could not see anything exceptional either. Given the shape of the curve I am worried that I will get strange results at certain times.

David A. Goldfarb said:I asked Anthony about the fixer a while back, and he acknowledged that there might be no significant difference between their alkaline fixer and TF-4, but they are about the same price ($9.54/gal Artfix, $9.95/gal TF-4), and Artfix comes in a powder instead of a liquid, which makes it cheaper to ship. I can buy TF-4 off the shelf from B&H at the Formulary price, and since FAPS and B&H are both in New York state, I have to pay sales tax either way, so I use TF-4. If I were ordering by mail, though, I'd probably use Artfix or just mix my own TF-3.
If you want to get off-label film, the best bet is J&C as far as I can determine. They are honest about what they have, and whatever is available, they have.
Photo Engineer said:Reading between the lines, I would assume that Bill has no objections to the Formulary continuing to produce products using his developer formulas.
