    If the film records what I see to my satisfaction, thats what I'm after.
    I can screw up any shot on any emulsion made.
    The best is what you do, not what you use to do what you do.

    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.

    Cosmic,
    5 rinses in tap water (ours is good and certinaly not acidic). Then a self mixed neutral or alkali fixer. I've conrtacted a virus that has wiped a lot of my stuff but get a copy of The Darkroom Cookbook.

    I've got a box of fomapan-100 ordered and expect to get it in a few days. I'm wondering what people develop it with. I should mention I mix my own developers and I'm not interested in developers I can't mix from scratch.

    Since posting I'm starting think that I'll give fx2 a try. I already use it with Efke-25 and like that combo a lot. My thinking is that both the efke and fomapan are old emulsions and I like the results I'm getting from the efke/fx2 combo.

    I use D76 1+1 rotary 9:00 for that at EI50; comes out lovely. You can DIY D76, right?

    I think I can mix up a little D76! As of right now I'm looking to try D76h, fx37 and fx2. I've done a bit of looking around on google and have seen some (heavily photoshoped I'm sure) scans of fomapan-100 and am looking forward to trying it!

    I can confirm that D-76H diluted 1-1 is great for all the Foma films. I'm lucky enough to have Patterson Orbitals so I use contstant agitation. I wear gloves and do two 2 minute washes with water at the developer temprature before I start, use water stop baths (about 5 at the developer temp0 and finish up with either an alkali of neutral fix.
