    When mixed up it is a pale orange/yellow, when oxidized it is a dark dirty orange.

    I think it could be one of two things.

    Either too much carryover of developer into the fix or retention of some of the dyes in the film which then wash out in the fix.

    Some of the dyes used in films, change color when alkaline. They might be blue or purple in the film, but orange in the alkaline fix.

    These are both just guesses.

    Sorry Tim,

    I was doing a little research back here and realized I never saw your question. It is in Arches in Utah, right over by the Parade of Elephants.

    I get a tinge in the fix when using Ilford Rapid Fix/Hypam. It seems to disappear on sitting as the fix loses the color in a couple days. I've always figured it was a dye from the film that was coming out in the fix, and that the hypo or sulfite in the fix that was breaking down the dye.

    Since I OPed this thread about a year ago I have been using the same things. The fixer still turns orange, but I can find no lack of performance or ill effects. I am, however, thinking of going back to PMK but increasing Sol A for rolling development, or trying Rollo-Pyro. IDK, but I'm out of developer, so a decision must be made.

    "Use the pyrocat, Luke..."

    I would certainly give formulary's pyrocat-hd in glycol a try, if you're thinking about changing something. It will open up a whole new world for you with minimal agitation or semi-stand development. I think it is worth using with the roller, but slow development is where it really shines. There's plenty of information available now to get a starting number or two and see how you like it. tim

    Are you still using J&C 100 - or are you using another film with the same orange color? I always saw a lot of dye when using J&C 100 - in the presoak, the developer, the stop and the fix, although I don't use WD2D nor TF-4, so I didn't see orange. As PE said, could be the dye.

    Orange, to greater or lesser degrees. Orange with FP4, HP5, & J&C100. Pre-soaked or not.
