    Anyone develop fuji fillms in D23?

    I'm in love with Neopan 400 and Acros in 120. I just switched to D23 and have my 35mm film speeds all dialed in with it. Since my medium format cameras don't have meters, arriving at a desired developing time is a bit of a long process.
    f/22 and be there.

    I used ID11 which is the opposite side of the same coin. It worked well.

    I like Acros 100 in simple box cameras as it has bags of latitude, and can cope with mega overexposure as well and still get a printable decent negative.

    I think its an often overlooked film that surprises people with its versatility. You have to do something really stupid to get a duff result

    I used XTOL undiluted at 74ºF for 5 minutes and 15 seconds based on 68ºF [20ºC] for 8 minutes.

    Maybe where you live, but I find myself surrounded by Acros lovers who like it more than I do.

    I tried to follow Fuji's recommendations, but as previously mentioned you just can't find Fuji developer easily outside of Japan. Not being keen on breaking into yet another chemical anyway, I used D-76 and was very happy with my results. I generally favor higher contrast negatives, but I keep Acros around for the occasions that call for its mellowness.

    FX39 for me. I'm still fairly new to Fuji BW films, but am loving them.

    A lot of the Fuji materials are available in the UK, and my personal feeling is that as a country the range we get is only second to Japan. Certainly the C41 neopan has been here a lot longer officially than in the US market.

    However, you do have to specifically plan to obtain it, even if that is just ordering it online, and waiting a few days for the post

    If I want a couple of rolls of B&W from the nearest camera store, and I'm not too concerned about brand, the default choice is Ilford, as that is stocked everywhere

    If you can get Super-Prodol it's quite nice: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum37/6...tml#post846389

    I've done it in SP, Microfine, D-76, ID-11 & HC-110 and it's been nice in all of them.

    I've developed the sheet film (4x5 & 8x10) in Pyrocat-HD and liked what I got.

    Two extreme counterparts for developing Fuji Acros 100:

    Rodinal 1+50 (iso 64)
    CG-512 (RLS) 1+4 (iso 50)

    In CG-512 you can't find any grain of the film. It's like an iso 25 film, amazing but iso 50 only.

    In Rodinal the film has high acutance and sharpness. When using it in medium format the grain is also neglectible.
    When you like the sharpness you can also try Beutler A+B, 1+1+10 on box speed. Also a very good combination.
