    I have a scanned copy of an Agfa-Ansco formula booklet from 1941. It's 5megabytes. Is it appropriate to upload it to APUG either in this thread or elsewhere?

    It's already online

    Not sure how you could upload to APUG, presumably it's a PDF. An older copy is also online.

    Agfa 17 seems to be recommended by Agfa:

    It's quite likely Agfa 17 gives finer grain, & better sharpness as well as tonality than D76, it's closer to Adox Borax MQ, it was also commercially available as a pakaged developer.

    Ian what modern developer is similar to Agfa 17? was it similar to Studional? Also am I correct that D76 wasn't available commercially until 1938?
    thanks

    Mark, I'm not sure about the German Aga commercial film devs, there was also Agfa 19 which is D76 with a small amount of Bromide.

    Kodak were still researching D76 variants in 1935 & beyond, it may not have been on general sale until 1938, no Kodak chemistry is listed in the 1935 BJP Amanacsadverts I have, in fact on the page of "Supplies for the Photo-Finishing Trade" there's every thing except chemistry. There's separate adverts for Kodak Australia/New Zealand again no chemistry. No Kodak chemistry in New Products either.

    Maybe Kodak didn't make chemistry until 1938, at least in the UK/Australia.

    Agfa 17 is a fine developer. I use it 1+1 for many films. Pan F+, Tri-X, Efke...

    Mark, Studional is a PQ developer and also quite different to Agfa 17, it's not a PQ version.
