    Has anyone ever tried developing Fomapan 200 in Diafine? If you did, what was the effective film speed increase you saw? I have briefly googled this and have found nothing, apart from a reference that rating it at 200 in Diafine resulted in negs that were almost too thick to scan.

    I will be unable to get near a darkroom until the end of next month so all information would be much appreciated!

    Lachlan -- I found that there was about one stop extra "speed" (basing it on the midtones here) for the 35mm stuff, but that the 120 material, strangely, didn't get as much of a boost. Just my experience, of course.
