    another quick question; do you develop your first development as you normally would a negative, or do you add extra time for development?
    I'm nailing the development times down using the paper developer Rollei RPN. I use milliliters versus the notation 1+n just because it's more scientific and practical to me.
    The last trial tonight was 40ml Rollei RPN plus 260ml water. All other parameters were left untouched. I agitate like this: 1 inversion every 15 seconds (except the bleach where I use 1 inversion every 5 seconds). The aim is 12 minutes in the first developer. With this configuration the frame exposed at 200 iso is just perfect.
    To get the frame exposed at 100 iso perfect too I guess I've to diluite more or less minutes.

    My Foma 100 from 35mm bulk rolls has a very faint grey coloured base. My 120 roll film on the other hand has a really really blue base. The Foma 100 120 while processes well for me as reversal, it views and projects poorly because of its base colour.

    ..all foma film except fomaR, 200T 35mm & 800T [now discontinued] are poor films for reversal processing - reasons are too long to even post. Use the ILFORD or ROLLEI or ADOX-SILVERMAX films. Time is better spent elsewhere.

    How does the Foma R100 compare with Adox Silvermax ? Both rich in silver, both on transparent support...

    If Adox Silvermax is similar to Apx100 all I can say is that you'll get very good slides using it.

    Some samples are available (Fomapan 100 classic). I'm against posting them on the net 'cause looking at a scan is not the proper way to appreciate or criticize a slide.
    Samples are available by traditional mail upon request (for free).

    A strange thing happens: around highlights, where there's a strong transition from white to black, there's a slight white halo. Is there anyone that can explain this?
