    Someone said before that FX developers are "ordinary" developers, and theire formulae are public avaliable, so you can make your own FX39, that is to give recepture to some chemist (pharmacy store) to mix FX39 for you... I don't know if this is true, but if it is, Jin, then...

    Not all of the FX series formulas were published. The one for FX-39 was not. However when Paterson discontinued FX-15 (Acutol-S) Crawley disclosed the formula. Maybe they will do that now.

    The numbers are IIRC:
    FX14=ACUTOL
    FX26=UNIVERSAL
    FX39=FX39
    FX44=ACULUX 2
    FX50=FX50

    Hope this helps,

    ACUTOL

    I just switched to Patterson’s high definition non-solvent developer ACUTOL that satisfied my need for high acutance and pictorial gradation … so, now I’m looking for the same chemistry. Or, a developer that will bring me the same great results I’ve been obtaining.

    Recommendations, ideas, or solutions would be appreciated

    I recommend trying Pyrocat P and Pyrocat M. In my experience both of these modified Pyrocat-HD developers deliver high acutance and excellent microcontrast. They are very well suited for Stand and Semi-Stand agitation and also give excellent results with rotational agitation. The formulas for these two developers are posted in APUG and are also available as premixes from several sources.

    I agree--it would be very sporting of Paterson to reveal the formula, if there is no possibility of their making it anymore. They would have nothing to lose and would gain good will.

    I doubt if Paterson will ever reveal their B&W film developer formulae for the public domain.
