I am currently undertaking a photo course during which we have been using Acros film as the main medium and developing it in either a 2 bath staining or Pyro Cat.

However, one of the other tutors I know is very much against using staining/tanning developers with Acros as they may damage the emulsion.

I have alot of respect for both tutors and so don't want to start a 'He said this, but he said this....type argument'.

I am therefore looking for some guidance, and preferably documented evidence, to allow me to make an informed choice - and live with it!

Many Thanks for your anticipated help in this matter.
