    Maybe do some 35mm for a week or two. Then your 120 results will be seen in a new light.

    I had abandoned Xtol because of its habit of sudden death, until I printed an FP4 35mm negative which enlarged to 11x14 with virtually no grain. When I checked my records it was developed in Xtol.
    I recently took many rolls of APX 100 120 in the Bright light in Barbados and developed in Xtol 1:1. The tonality is simply beautiful. The one possible negative is the almost total lack of any edge effects.

    Rodinal for a classic look. FX-39 is great as well...just did a roll of 135 in the 1:9 dilution with excellent results.

Just can't seem to get the same results in the 120 size, The prints are rather lifeless looking but bumping up the paper grade tends to burn out the highlites. TIme to experiment thus goes out my feelers into this great cyber info space
    I have had great success developing APX100 in D23 diluted 1:1. I have a couple of 16x20 shots of Eucalytus trees in fog and the tonality is wonderful, lots of detail and extremely fine grain.

    Our Canadian buddy of Hey Lloyd fame turned me on to this combination. He has a good set of articles on his web site.
