    Photographers' Formulary Fixer TF-5

    Does anyone know if this fixer can be used on films BESIDES Tmax films ... as in Tri-X, Delta 100 ...

    everything I can find about it says that it works fine for paper and on Tmax films ... but it says nothing about other films.

    This stuff is eligible for free shipping on Amazon and I'm trying to round out an order, and I need more fixer — and everything I've ever used from PF has been top notch.

    Does anyone know a nicer replacement for the phrase: "Straight from the horse's mouth"?

    Hi Ron:

    How about film that has been developed in one of the staining developers?

    Can TF5 be used with Azo papers developed in Amidol?

    TF5 can be used in all instances where you have used TF4, C41 fix, plain hypo (Sodium or Ammonium) or any other neutral fix.

    So, Drew is right.

    A few months ago when reading the ad in PhotoFormulary.com, I had the same impression. I remember thinking, "Oh, the ad only says Tmax, so it must not be suitable for other films." That's why I did not buy it.

    PE: I suggest changing the wording in ads to not imply that this is a specialised fixer.

    Guys, sorry, I have no control over ads.

    Perhaps Bill and I were not clear in our communications with them.

    Alert them by sending them an e-mail.
