    120 Acros 100 /developer combination ?

    What developer would you experience folks suggest for Acros 100 120 format.

    I'm just getting started in the darkroom and thinking about using Acros and also testing FP4 soon.

    Thanks!

    I use ADOX ADX (aka Adox A+B)for Neopan Acros and I really really like the combination.

    However, it've also had OK results with Ilford DD-X.

    From my experience, you`ll get nice results with just about any developer with Acros. Just give it enough exposure.

    I'm happy with Perceptol 1+3 for 14 min @ 24C. Agitation 30s initially then 5s every minute.

    But, now that Perceptol (locally) has more than doubled in price (~CDN$8.50/litre), I'm experimenting with Pyrocat HD (1+1+100). The preliminary results look fine (contrast-wise). I will be doing a print comparison for grain/sharpness "soon".

    Another rodinal 1:100 user. I do semi-stand and get nice full shadows at 100.

    I've used Sprint Standard 1:9 for 10 min and Rodinal 1:50 for 11 min, both at 20 Deg.

    I use DiXactol single bath, minimal agitation, and get great results. I just recently switched to Acros from Delta 100 and have not experimented with developers other that HC110, so i can't comment on how it reacts to various developers, just that it works great with DiXactol.
