    Hi Peter,

    Does the name of your developer Prescysol have a specific meaning? Like ID 76 stands for Ilford Developer number 11. Or DiXactol stands for a 2-bath (Di) developer?

    I'm just curious. Maybe you already answered this question on your site, but I haven't found it.

    Sorry, that should be ID 11 ofcourse. I probably thought D 76 and ID 11 to be interchangable. How curious :wink:

    Hi Argentic, no, the name 'Prescysol' doesn't have any specific connotation, other than it gives prescise results, depending on how it is used. I have people mailing me with results of stand development of up to one hour, with fantastic results! The versitility of the developer is amazing even me! Initally, I just thought it sounded like a good, memorable name! Peter.
