The Pyrocat-HD and Michael and Paula's Amidol are on their way from Photographer's Formulary so we're getting scarily close to the nut cutting here in the FEMA trailer. I'll be using the new (03/06) Azo grade 2.
Is the current consensus that the new Azo requires a four minute development time as opposed to the one minute for the old? I'm thinking two minutes in amidol and two in the water bath. I plan on using Steve Simmon's exposure calibration process and need to standardize print development right off the bat. Michael Smith says the new Lodima will be like the old Azo.
I also found a local supply for the remaining chemistry and got a great armload of stuff yesterday. Alas, I only got Ilford Rapid Fixer. Will I have staining problems with it? Should I put off starting until I can get some conventional hypo fix?
That's all I can think of right now, but I'm sure other questions will arise. Thanks.
