    Pyrocat-hd or 510-pyro for enlargement and Contact Printing

    Hi!

    I have heard Pyrocat-HD is good for negatives for enlargement on VC paper as well as contact printing. What about 510-Pyro, does it have the same characteristic?

    I have a hard time deciding on which of these two developers to use, and I don't want to do a lot of comparisons test. I use Jobo CPA2 with expert drum for sheet film.

    Thanks,
    Stig

    It possible you'll stir up a small storm with the question. As a user of many different formulas, now using a jobo and Pyrocat hd successfully, I would just say try it. It's not expensive.

    I have to say 510 pyro might be fully the equivalent, I honestly don't know, but Pyrocat is excellent with a jobo.

    Don't do a lot. Do a little

    ... then tell us what you discover.

    Either will do. I could argue about why I think 510-Pyro is better, but in the end, either will do.
