    APX100 - 120 developer recommends?

    Looking to see what you folks are using for developing APX100-120 film. Currently using PMK but the results are not too satifactory. I use PMK with APX100 4x5 and Delta 100 and the results are great. 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 get good results with both Agfa Rodinal (1:25) and Paterson FX-39 (1:9).

    Rodinal. Can't recommend time\dilution since I think everyone has to test fot themselves, but 1:50 for 12-13 minutes is about right.

    Second Rodinal 1+50 (use 25% less than the time reccomended in the Rodinal bottle)
    I have also used DDX, FG7, and IlfosolS with very good results.

    I had good results with Suzuki's DS-12, a thin acutance developer containing ascorbic acid. This gives excellent, very sharp negs. The grain however isn't the smallest you've ever seen, I use a homebrew-version of Perceptol 1+3 for studio portraiture. Slow at 40 ASA, but sharp and very fine grain. I reported my recipes here, it should be easy to find.

    I used to use PMK with my apx100

    But I seem to like it better with 1:50 and sometimes 1:100 Rodinol
