That's right, they do use ABC pyro. I watched Paula develop film this way and I've dabbled in it myself. Never noticed any fogging that seemed different than what I'm used to... by eye anyway. I've never measured it with a densitometer. My understanding is that there is only a SLIGHT increase if done properly.

I'm just curious about what is actually happening. I would LOVE to get some nice IR googles, glass trays with an IR light source underneath them some day.
