    I completely disagree with this statement, on two levels. First of all, I don't see how you come to the conclusion that it is not a medium. If you're looking for a physical substrate to make it a...

    Re: Bergger Film Developer?

    One thing about the Bergger Panchro 100 is that it requires a pre-rinse. I have discovered that about half a teaspoon of baking soda into the pre-rinse reduces the base-fog density a bit. I've tried...
