    Can anyone recommend a web site or resource where I could find all Geoff. Crawleys published fx developer formulas? Or would you care to post the ones you have on apug?Thanks in advance.

    British Journal of Photography Annual (approx 1950 through the 1970s)

    I've posted several of Crawleys FX recipes on APUG in the past.

    Interesting site. The term legacy-photo is a bit depressing though.
    Does it mean "Film's but a walking shadow, a poor player..." ?
    Hope not !

    Cheers,

    Steve Anchells' Film Developing Cookbook is probably the most definitive collection of the Crawley developers including the FX series

    Yes, my copy gets loads of use (and spatters of developer LOL). FX15 is my favourite-beautiful midtones and recommended by Barry Thornton in 'Elements'.

    Try The British Journal of Photography Annual, edited by Geoffrey Crawley (approx 1950 through the 1970s).

    I have the original papers from '61-'62. I pdf'd them for some APUGers some time back and they are on the HD now. Each issue (8 IIRC) is separate so if you only have dialup I can send them once a day, all the lot in one hit.
    It seems there was some 'revision' of some of the formulae later but that is a separate issue :smile:

    It`s a good start, but there are errors for some of the formulas such as FX-37 and the BJP dilute DK-50 developers.

    I was looking after these FX-recipes, especially the FX15. Are the definitely removed from the APUG-Forum??

    The articles section is being revamped, so they should be back.

    A note of caution many of the formulae posted at the website bogeyes mentioned "www.legacy-photo.com" under Darkroom Stuff are incorrect. Same goes for the www.darkroompro.com website.

    I noticed this incorrectness also this morning when I'am on the search for it.

    Hopefully Sean will set back again these threads on the APUG.
