    Adox 25 and 50 in D76 ? Or which one better?

    Both will be exposed at their standard ISO in a first test, at 25 and 50.
    In a second run at 20 and 40, on 35mm film

    I would expect them to go quite good with D76, or are there better ideas ?
    I love a large range of noble greys, and for the purpose I bought them contrast is not a prio.

    Thanks !

    Seems a waste of their sharpness to develop them in D-76 unless you intend to dilute it 1+3.

    both films should be fine, but I would use a more dilute developer ratio. Efke films get crispy real quick. I have never used d76 and efke so I can't tell witch ratio/time/agitation would be best.
    art is about managing compromise

    I agree with Gerald, Adox 25 is the one film that I still process in Rodinal. You can also try HC 110 or DDX.

    I'm starting to feel like a broken record but I've had good luck with tfx-2 and efke-25. I use a semi-stand development @73F for 20min.

    Shall try it with D76 1:3 first, buy a bottle of Rodinal probably if the result is not what I need.

    Thanks !
