    Does anyone have suggestions as to an ideal pyro formulation for medium format negatives? I have all the chemicals for ABC Pyro, but I heard that there can be a problem with grain in non-LF negs. I'll more than likely still try it, just to see what I get, but I was wondering what other formulations were out there that may be better. Thanks for any help you can offer!

    For negatives to be enlarged (4x5" and smaller), I use PMK. For 8x10" and larger, I use ABC.

    I concur with David's assessments of PMK and ABC.
