    When I first started to develop and print my films I used the above mentioned developer, I seem to remember it was capable of some really nice contrasty images reproduction and allowed films to be rated at one stop neither in my case FP4 was rated at 200 ASA Did anyone else use it or know of a similar developer still on the market.

    These days I tend to use either D76 or Ilfosol and get decent results but I thought I would still make this post as there doesn't seem much activity at the moment. Going back to my developing theme and looking back at some of my prints and older neg scans I think I was getting better results back then than I do now!

    Adox FX-39 could be what you are looking for, it's listed on First Call Photographic www.firstcall-photographic.co.uk It is claimed to be close to Acutol in formula and characteristics.
