    I placed my first order

    Developer: ADOX ATOMAL 49 2x1 Liter / 2x10 Filme (ATM 49)
    StopBath: ADOLUX ADOSTOP Stoppbad 60% geruchlos mit Indicator 1000 ml
    Fixer: ADOLUX ADOFIX Expressfixierer hohe Konz. 1Liter

    ...and some other stuff as starter kit.

    I would like to have your opinion about this developer for slow films like ILFord PanF 50?

    baachitraka:

    Good luck in getting your question answered. I personally have had no experience with either your film or chemistry choices.

    I do have one suggestion though - you might get better responses if you used a different thread title. If the title was something like "Slow films in ADOX Atomal 49 - good choice?" you would be much more likely to attract the attention of someone who does have experience with the combination.

    I will not worry much, since I would like to start with the cheap stuff to gain some experience and move on to more professional stuff.

    By the way, Is Xtol, such a great developer? They promise good shadow detail, fine grain and sharpness...

    Xtol is a very good developer, and it has a relatively benign environmental "footprint".

    The only downside (for me) is that the mixing directions require you to mix up 5 liters at a time.

    Personally, I use HC-110 one-shot, mixed directly from the thick (North American) concentrate to dilution E (1 + 47).

    That being said, I'm sure that you will get at least reasonable results from the ATM 49 developer you have ordered.

    Yes, when I was ordering I saw the Xtol for 5 liters. I felt it is little too much for a beginner.

    Off topic: Are there any alchemist who mix diff developers(A+B), for developing film?

    ATOMAL 49 is excellent for slow films. I have used almost all the a49 incarnations.. Agfa, ORWO etc etc.
    However, I haven't tried it with any of the Ilford emulsions. Its should be good match thou.

    Atomal 49 (Agfa version), now Adox 49 (just a name change), is quite a professional developer. Was one of the standard fine grained developers when it 1st came out. Ilford films certainly these days can not be considered "cheap" either.

    I had used X-tol when I worked in NYC, because at the time, it was available in 1L packages. Interesting results at the time with Tri-X, but Studional gave much better results overall.

    Good luck with your 1st order. Mirko is a good guy.
    If the lens doesn't read "ZEISS", then it just isn't.

    Okay, I just got it. Very curious to prepare the stock solution. But, I am trying to find Studional in adox.de, but there is no such product in their web-page.
