Is there a good one-shot fine -grain developer for FP4?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
Is there a good one-shot fine-grain developer for FP4? I've been using Rodinal but find it a bit too grainy. As I don't do a lot of work, a diluted developer sitting around will end up down the drain. Thanks in advance Yaakov Asher Sinclair

Ilfosol-S works very nicely with this film. It's my usual, but usually with HP5.
Microphen is very nice also.
I print on a diffusion enlarger and usually find I have to develop about 15% longer than Ilford recomends. (Relatively soft lighting situations)

PMK is very good, and the concentrate will keep for over a year. Pat

This is a bit late, but try Ilfospeed diluted at 1-100 for approx 12 minutes or at 1-60 for 8 or so, you may prefer to add a couple of minutes to these times if you prefer.
