    I'll take a look, Thanks! Being in Taipei I'd probably get it a little faster then that, too

    I'm looking more toward one-shot developers for convenience sake

    I shoot Acros at iso 80 and develop in Paterson Aculux 3 for 35mm and Ilford LC29 (1+29) in 120.

    You can make your own "Rodinal" with commonly available chemicals - paracetamol tablets, drain cleaner (sodium hydroxide), sodium sulphite and water. You can find the recipe here.

    acu fx-39 works great. expose at 64 and use the developing time for 100(from the sheet).
    strong, sharp and good for printing.

    I have had great results with ACROS in Rodinal, and now prefer DD-X, exposing the ACROS at EI 200. You may have lots of light there, and find EI 100 to be handy enough. I use the times in digitaltruth.com's Massive Developing Chart. It's wise to test one film through the whole processing/scanning process to see if your exposure settings are suitable. Good luck, it's a superb film in 120 size.

    PS: Ilford's method of re-using one liter of 1+4 diluted DD-X, and adding 10% to the time for each subsequent film works just fine for up to 5 films.

    I didn't know that was possible with DD-X. I used to do it with LC-29 (there are re-use instructions on the bottle for time adjustments for re-using it twice at 1+19) but if I'm not mistaken (too lazy to look at the bottle now) DD-X is one use only?

    I used to use LC-29 quite a bit, especially for PanF and HP5+ but switched to HC-110 a couple years ago. Besides being more economical (not a big deal) it, for me at least, gave me better accuance when streched out.

    Interesting. I thought that HC110 and LC29 were supposed to be pretty much the same. Obviously not.

    Me, too...but when I do longer developments (i.e. LC29 @1+29 and HC-110 @1+64) I get some shadow area definition with HC-110 that I just don't get with LC-29.

    Ilfotec HC is probably a closer comparison to HC-110, but I haven't made a comparison yet as the chems shop I frequent doesn't carry it.
