    It can even get better. There is a soup named Moersch Eco Film Developer. It works extremely well with APX 100 and other low- and medium-speed non-T-grain films.

    I don't have a bigger version of this one online, but it gives an impression of the sharpness - this scan was not sharpened:



    It's a 35mm negative, taken with an old lens that does not render much contrast.

    CMO the print looks very sharp and has good tonality and I was wondering if you knew what devoloping agent was used in the Moersch developer. I just read that it needs an activator but no Info about the developer.
    Thanks

    I have no idea about the ingredients. It's two concentrates, you use them like 1+1+50 (50 is the water) or similar.

    Ok, another developer to try. I had anyway considered ordering some alt process stuff from Moersch.

    To MDR and Chrismat: after reading up on stand development on the forum an elsewhere, how much agitation do you do? I haven't figured out how much that affects the time.

    Dear myosotis

    I agitate 3 times the first time for 30 secs, the second time after 30 mins for 8 secs and the third time just before the hour is over again for 8 secs. I also a presoak the film for 3 mins. If you do a lot of alt processes you might consider using one of the staining developers like Pyrocat HD, Jay de Fehr's Hypercat , Moersch's Tanol or Tanol Speed.

    indeed, Moersch Eco is interesting developer.
    cmo, what scanner was used for that attached photo of Yours?
    If I am not mistaken, the exif says "Model: Canon EOS 5D Mark II" & "Focal Length: 50"
    Thanks,
    G

    This is strictly an analog forum, but I want to reply. I use a high-end DSLR with a bellows and an Olympus 4/80mm bellows head as a scanner, the light source is a very bright LED video light, and I am very happy with the results. I use that camera mostly as a very good negative scanner The analog print looks very similar, but I don't have it here.

    But not today, I just have break from a long darkroom session, I prepare an exhibition, and this monitor is too bright for me now.

    BTT:

    I am currently experimenting with Moersch's efd and Efke 50 and Orwo UN54 and N74 film. So far I can say that Efke 50 and efd is a very good match, like APX 100/Rollei retro 100, and both Orwos like Xtol. As soon as I have more time I will show the results on apug in a separate thread.
