AFAIK the two are much the same, although I've always used HC 110. So use the times Ilford say, see how you go, and if you need any more look at the HC 110 times.

It is a good developer and I used it for years but switched to HC110 which I still use. Going from memory you can use the HC110 dilutions, but do a check before doing so.

The old Foma did lith and bromoil very well, it was also a great paper for toning / straight printing. However, the emulsion was changed a few years ago and the new papers were not the same.

Good to hear those who tuned in enjoyed the program. We also thoroughly enjoyed it and there was a lot to take in I feel. So much so we shall probably re-watch it in about 6 weeks time.
