I have now processed six sheets of Fomapan 100 in Pyrocat HD at the times and speed used by Ian given in a previous post. I have to say they are bang on giving negatives that are easy to print on grade 2 - 2.5 in a diffuser enlarger.
Sadly 5 out of six of the shots have negative defects. I have heard about variable quality with Fomapan 400 but I did not know that the 100 was susceptible as well. I would be grateful if anyone using this combo had had to take any special precautions other than careful consistent technique. Ilford negatives processed on the same day did not exhibit any defects. I should point out that I use distilled water when formulating the stock solution but make up the working solution using tap water.
