I am down to my last roll of APX-100.
I sure am going to miss this film. It has been a favorite of mine for years, specially when developed in D-23 with a Borax after bath.

Could you elaborate; you use Borax (Arm&Hammer, Kodalk???) as a stop..... dilution?

Thanks.

Cheers,

I have tried Ilford Delta-100, Arista, Fuji Across, and T-Max 100. None of them are the same, to me, as the old APX-100. APX just fit for me, and could count on it every time.

Anyone have any suggestions?


No, it is used as an accelerator. It is a split (two bath) developer. The D23 is absorbed into the emulsion and the borax solution acts as the alkali.
