    Just remember, 3 quarts water, dissolve powder, top off to one gallon. Works for D-76, Fix, and whatever else you use like Stop Bath. Please also get some PhotoFlo and some sleep.

    Unfortunately the Agfa Ansco (GAF) developer nomenclature isn't the same as the main Agfa - Germany (and later Orwo) one I think only one (possibly two) dev is the same number for number. Other formulae are vere similar except the Anhydrous/monohydrate conversions's been done incorrectly for the Sulphite

    So when the site you link to says Agfa/Ansco that seems to indicate Agfa and Ansco as seperate companies. Antony and Scoville (Ansco) did become Agfa Ansco whioch is when the formulae were published.

    Unfortunately Agfa Ansco call the formula Agfa 125 and it's a very different developer to Agfa (Germany) 125

    Can be confusing as we don't know whatpeople are referring to at times

    Back in my newspaper days I was working in the darkroom of a little valley paper and a call came on the scanner of some local deputies who were chasing a man who had a gun. It was hot, wicked hot, the kind of hot that makes people do crazy stuff. He raised his gun. The deputies fired. I raced out with my cameras. Soon as I left, the drunk society editor went into the darkroom. I shot some powerful stuff. I went back to the darkroom on deadline and poured D76 in the tank and developed my film. It came out like cr@p. It wasn't long until I found out who had been in the lab. I hauled him into the lab and asked him what he did. Yup, he poured used Dektol in a jug labeled D76.

    Well... its amazing what proper chemistry can achieve? LOL!

    After buying some D76 and properly mixing the stock solution, as well as a new batch of fixer, I got a second roll developed nicely. I had some 4x6 proofs made at the camera store on Saturday. Its B&W photos on color paper, printed with a one hour machine, but hey... I got proofs.

    I found out two things, as I intended to do - A.) I still know how to develop film, but need to brush up on my skills, and B.) my $64 Nikon FM ebay find works very well, without any light leaks.
