Hi friends, I just wanted to put this here for the record, for anyone looking to reversal process Fomapan R100. I'm very happy with the results I'm getting, full ISO with good shadow detail, and nice crisp highlights. I basically follow this guy's process to the letter: (make sure you've got subtitles switched on) I even went out and found those 1.5 liter bottles that he uses (not cheap). My one alteration is to use Ilford's PQ Universal developer instead of Dokumol. It is more readily available here in the US, and relatively inexpensive. I also already use it for other photographic processes, so it just means one less thing I have to buy an keep on hand. Note that using distilled water really helps make these solutions last a long time. My solutions are: Developer 1: 200ml PQ Universal + 1300ml distilled water Bleach: 1200ml distilled water + 70ml 50% Sulfuric Acid + 15g potassium dichromate + water to make 1500ml Clearing Bath: 140g Sodium Sulphite + distilled water to make 1500ml Developer 2: 200ml PQ Universal + 1300ml distilled water Fixer: Ilford Rapid Fix My timings are (all at 68 degrees F) Pre-wash 1 minute Dev 1 8 minutes Rinse 30 seconds Bleach 5 minutes Rinse 1 minute Clearing 3 minutes Rinse 30 seconds Re-Exposure 1 minute Dev 2 8 minutes Rinse 1 minute Fix 3 minutes Wash 3 minutes Hypo clear 1 minute Final wash 3 minutes.
