    I develop Acros in Rodinal and in Pyrocat...different results, but both lovely. Acros is a wonderful film, and as mentioned above has fantastic recipricatory characteristics. It's my favorite of the "differently-grained" films; personally I'll take over Delta or TMAX any day.

    I wish Fuji would do two things: One: import it into the US in sheet film sizes but not in Quickloads. (You can buy it from a few places that import it themselves, but the price seems out of line.) Two: stop punching the little hole in the corner of the 4x5 film. I know someone, somewhere loves to use that little hole to hang their film to dry, but the *%$&^ hole is in the image area...and that's just wrong.
    Film is cheap. Opportunities are priceless.

    I like Acros - particularly when I want to use Quickloads. I tray develop it in Ilford DD-X, 1:4, for about 8 ½ minutes.

    I have only tried this film in quickload and 120, but it's a great film for night shots. I used one of these negs for my print exchange.

    I do love to use that little hole to hang my film to dry.

    I'm very happy for you Diane...but the little hole still sucks. (Why, oh why, couldn't they have put it closer to the edge? It's not like wet film weighs that much.)

    Yes the hole is in a bad place, I agree.

    I have been using it for a year now and I am fairly happy with it in Tmax developer 1:4. Does anyone have alternative developing info for using Tmax at a weaker dilution or any experience souping this film in Rodinal or Rodinal Special? (apart from Digitaltruth.com)

    ACROS has replaced Delta 100 in my medium speed film arsenal. I love the creamy tones and fine grain. I develop it in my Phenidone/Vitamin C/Carbonate homebrew (see elsewhere in this forum for formulas that I've posted) for 7 minutes at 72 degrees or 7:30 at 70. I don't agree that it lacks accutance. I think the developer you use makes a difference.

    This thread inspired me to shoot a roll of Acros 100 that a shop owner gave me. I filled it with some outdoor portraits of my daughter. I developed it last night in Rodinal 1:50, 20c, 11.5min. They turned out well with an exceptionally clear film base compared to the Deltas and Tmax. Is this normal? Does it affect printing or contrast in printing?

    I've been using Acros since it became available and it's predecessor Fuji SS
    100 which you could only buy at Silverprint in the UK, imported from USA I
    think. I am also long time Rodinal user, it's my favorite general dev and you will good results with Acros.
    But if you want to see best Acros can do, have go with DiXactol Ultra
    using partial stand one bath method. The Negs are superb using DiXactol Ultra.
    Regards JON

    Yep, that's pretty normal. It should not affect things in the darkroom. You will have to do test strips, of course (or whatever method you use to determine exposurte). But print them up...it will be worthwhile to hear your feelings on it!

    I think all the info we can get Peter, the better off we all are!
