    Having come back from holiday with a mixture of FP4+, Wephota NP22 sheet and Acros in 120 and Quickload, I thought I'd dev them all in D-76 without problems. Well things have been fine for all except the sheet Acros, where the only time I can find is 5.25mins @24C with stock D-76 (Massive Dev Chart figure) since Fuji don't seem to list sheet data now.

    Given that I'd normally reduce times as I'm using a Paterson Orbital with continuous agitation, that would take the time below 5 mins and I'd prefer not to do that. D-76 at 1+1 for the 120 Acros is 10.5 mins @ 20C, and this would be a better time for me, although I'm taking it that there must be real differences between sheet Acros and the 120? Your thoughts and experiences would be most welcome!

    Thanks Keith, I tried it with the figures for 120 and they have come out pretty well. I might fine tune the times for the future once I've scanned them as the 5x4s are less contrasty than the 120 negs I also did today.

    Thanks again, Peter
