Has anyone experimented with the Fomapan R100 Reversal Bath Formula on R100 film or for reverse processing any other black and white film? The formula is given on the technical data sheet for Fomapan R100 which can be found at the link below
The chemicals appear to be available from Photographers Formulary, although some are apparently known by different names here in the United States. EDTA Disodium Salt sold by PF (Photographers Formulary) appears to be the same as Chelaton III in the Fomapan process? Stannous Chloride sold by PF appears to be the same chemical as Tin Dichloride in the Fomapan process? Finally, Glacial Acetic Acid 99% sold by PF seems the same as Essigsaure 60% (except for the concentration of course).
So has anyone tried home-brewing this formula for use with R 100 or any other B&W film? I have been using re-exposure to light and have read some interesting threads about using Super Iron Out for a reversal bath. Complicated is not always better. Having said that this formula has more components than Super Iron Out and may be more adaptable to different film emulsions. Many experts opine that chemical reversal is superior in terms of consistency and quality compared with re-exposure to light. The Darkroom Cookbook avoids discussing chemical reversal baths and Photographers Formualry was no help with the question. I have not been able to spot another APUG thread that addresses this specific issue. Any shared experience or advice appreciated.
