A while back I picked up a bottle of FA-1027 from Fine Art Photo Supply.
The advertising for this developer is on the bombastic side, as are their
newsletters, but after developing about 10-15 rolls of TX400 in this stuff,
I'm starting to think that this may actually be a surprisingly good 
Negs seem to have a rather linear response in the middle values and the roll 
off in the highlights is impressive. It also holds good shadow detail Grain
is fine, but not mushy. I found it difficult to overdevelop the negs in 
For some reason this developer reminds me of the results I was getting when I
was playing around with HC-110...

Anyone else use this stuff?
