ID11 v LC29 for FP4 plus

Post by Marty007 »

My long time standard is ID-11 for this films with stock concentration and recommended development times. Been happy with results for decades!

Tried LC29 (1+19 standard with dev.time) but the negatives are more grainy looking. Inspection with a magnifiers and enlargements of the scanned negative showed LC29 grain while similar in size to that produced by ID-11 were more clumped together. Thus the more grainy look.

I have seen no reference to this in any publications.

I turned to LC29 more for convenience with one shot fresh solutions

May have to go back to ID-11.

Any observations?
