Paterson FX-50 : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

Has anyone seen any reports or tests or is able to comment on availablity of a new Paterson developer, FX-50? It appeared in literature earlier this yaer but I haven't seen any reference in photo magazines. Apparently it is a two bath formula and is meant to be more environmentally friendly.

I guess nobody heard you Nigel. I check here often, because I too am curious. I suppose time will tell..

Noticed a Paterson ad in the Jan/Feb 2002 issue of Photo Techniques that arrived yesterday. It included FX-50, a Web site and a US (Georgia) address. B&H still doesn't list FX-50, so I went to the Paterson site. This page:

indicates that FX-50 will be available next Spring. Wait and see.
