    Fuji Acros and Neofin Blue

    I just thought I'd put into the record that you can successfully develop Fuji Acros 100 in Neofin Blue. I ran some Acros 120 exposed at EI 100 in Neofin Blue, one small bottle plus enough filtered water to make 500 ml, spiral tank, temperature at pour-in 66 degrees F. Agitation first 15 seconds, then for 5 seconds every minute. Total time beginning from pour-in 9 minutes 45 seconds. Nice negatives, almost invisible grain.

    Well, as I can't have a wet darkroom in my Paris apartment, I'm evaluating these negs by scanning on an Epson flatbed scanner at 400 dpi and zooming in to examine the image. Even at high mag rates, the image is degrading into pixels before the grain (which is very smooth) becomes anything more than mildy visible.

    400 dpi is not enough resolution to image the grain. 4000 dpi would, though. Is that a typo in your post?

    I use a four power Nikon magnifier. I know if can go four
    diameters and see no grain then I'm good for grainless
    8x10s. Dan
