    No problem, Andy. And, I didn't mean to sound as if I was getting on your case. I certainly agree with the need for calibration by some means. I simply wanted to point out that aspects of the Zone System come in different "strengths" - something that can benefit those who may be satisfied by something less than "industrial strength".

    I started off using FP4 but transitioned over to HP5 after about a year. It Zones very nicely and I like the additional speed. (I do 2x enlargements of 4x5 negs and no noticable difference in grain on my prints.) Of course, my HP5 suggestion does you no good if its on back-order too, but if its available its worth a shot.

    Developer: I now use DD-X, but D-76 is good with FP4 and HP5. I used it mostly 1+3 with FP4 (N = 12 minutes for MGIV w/#2.5 filter) and 1+2 with HP5 (N = 11 minutes ?).

    Chris - I like DD-X, too, both for its properties and its convenience as a liquid concentrate. I'm curious about the dillutions and times that work for you, however, as the dillutions are "hotter" and the times longer than those often recommended as a starting point. Any thoughts about what in your environment or workflow that relate to this?
