    Two rinses each for how long? Any agitation?

    Oh, myabe 15-30 seconds for the first rinse, 5-10 seconds for the second. I flip the tank over a few times, the idea being to wash the developer off the film.

    When I started using Foma 100 (and my remaining stock of Efke 25), I would occasionally get pinholes on these films when using acid stop bath... I actually then read the instructions and they said plain water stop or a 1 or 3% acid stop... Still got pinholes even with a weak stop, but vanished using plain water... I think they said 3 mins, but I don't remember the details now... Look at their tech sheet...

    I recently have been using just one bath of water for 5 min (as I'm using packaged hypo based fix now cuz I don't have access to my ammonium thiosulfate right now)... I figure that developing might continue through this bath, so I'm waiting for developer exhaustion...

    One interesting thing I noticed was when developing 30 35mm rolls of APX100 in dilute DK-50 recently was that this combination produces great edge effects, but it seemed slightly enhanced when using a long water stop... Have not enlarged these, but when viewing the negs by reflection, the "etch" of the image seem slightly more pronounced (but I could be mistaken)... So maybe something to explore and test...
