    Welcome to APUG Seadebris!

    I live in Japan but unfortunately I don't read or speak Japanese well so I've been avoiding the Fuji developers...still stick with Kodak and Ilford (mostly because I like them). There are a few other Apuggers in Japan however, so maybe one of them will chime in with more specifics.

    Edit: a quick search on google revealed some info, here's one link to try: click

    Another here on APUG: click

    Massive Development Chart: click

    (Seriously, check out the Massive Development Chart at Digitaltruth -- put in your film and developer combination and you should get some good starting points).

    I use Super-Prodol every so often. It's quite simple to use - what kind of trouble were you having?
    Those who know, shoot film

    I've seen some nice examples as well -- I may start experimenting more in the future when my current stock of D-76, Xtol, and Rodinal run out.

    I think it would probably help to say which films you intend on using with it.

    The only place I have seen it advertised is a outfit called "Japan Exposures"
    http://www.japanexposures.com/

    It is very hard to even find any Black and white info on the various Fuji Sites.

    On possible lead is it is mentioned on the various Fuji Film datasheets (Neopan 400 etc.)

    Fuji's datasheet for Neopan Acros 100 is available on the web. Here is the link:

    http://www.fujifilmusa.com/shared/bi...anAcros100.pdf

    This gives development times for Acros in Microfine - don't remember if it lists Prodol. It took my a long time to find this link, but didn't do me any good since Microfine doesn't seem to be available here in the USA
