    So using older formulae for enlarging won't really be beneficial. The reverse of the problem is it's very hard to achieve the same qualities from 20's, 30's, 40's negs with modern papers.

    Ah, yes. That makes perfect sense. Hadn't thought of it that way. It explains much really. Thanks.

    OOPS I forgot to mention just in case anyone was thinking of trying the formula, it is supposed to be diluted 1-1. I generally do dilute it but on occasion I use it straight.

    In other words, If I am projection printing a 4x5 negative (not alt process) and am willing to accept some grain, what can I get in return (by using an old formula)?

    I do not know enough about what makes a good neg for scanning. But (to name only one name I can remember) look at the images posted on this site in the past by Brumellisa to see what 4x5 Tri-xP and D76 can look like.

    Thanks John. I use that combo quite often (actually, I prefer d-76 1+1). So would only need to look at the prints in my hallway.

    In my experience Ansco 47 is similar to but slightly contrastier than DK-50 or HC-110. It does nice things with softly lit white background product stuff. It falls into the commercial developer catagory with the aforementioned and D-61a and others.
