    Odourless Fixer - is there a demand??

    Hi all:

    Ilford has odourless stop bath (citric acid based). That leaves fixer as the only really smelly chemical. Unfortunately, it is getting harder to find such formulations (e.g. based on F-6 formula).

    Just out of curiosity, are there others out there who would appreciate the availability of odourless fixer by someone such as Ilford (i.e. so it is easier to get worldwide).

    Thanks!

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    I've only used Zonal Pro (Alta) rapid fixer. I'm not sure how smelly it is. Basically, my goal is always to find the cheapest non-hardening rapid fixer around and just use it.
