    Hi, Everyone is very sharing with the process times, dilutions, likes, dislikes, but is anyone getting a true 100 speed? I know it is better downrated, and in 5X7 I could care less if I rate it at 32. However, I am going to try it in 120 format handheld and my max aperture on mamiya 645 150mm is 3.5. So I am hoping there is a suitable soup to match the box rating, that won't detract from the inherent beauty of this much touted product. Anyone happily shooting at 100-125? Thanks in advance. Dave O'Connor

    Hi,

    FWIW, we're shooting acros roll film all the time. We don't have a darkroom, so the local lab develops for us. I assume they develop this film as a 100ASA, running it through a standard Fuji developing machine. Until now, we've been quite happy with the results. That is: I would not expose at 125 ASA and develop as 100ASA. Last week we forgot to reset the dial of our Profisix and exposed the film at 160ASA (duh...) and now we're having a bit of trouble getting anything decent from the overexposed negs. This depends if it's the shadowy details that are over-exposed or the overall image. - Shooting with the sun in your back makes it worse, but if there is lots of shadow in your image, it's still doable. Hope this makes sense to you.

    You mean underexposed, not overexposed......

    Check out the Massive Dev Chart at DigitalTruth...it looks like there are a number of combinations that will give you 100 with Acros. I know from recent experience that Acros in Diafine will give you 100 with no problem...and very nice negatives at that.
    Film is cheap. Opportunities are priceless.

    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)

    Because a fellow photographer (that is a good friend) recommended Acros, I just ordered some. He uses Xtol 1:1 because he has found that he can use full rated ASA (100 vs. ASA 64 as most use).
