    I normally use TMX developed in MICROPHEN 1+3. For various reasons i
    develop it at 28°C for to obtain the best density in shadows for may film!
    [i have tested at 20°C and 24°C compensating time with different result]
    But this procedure produces too high fog [i haven't a densitometer but i
    see it by too long time exposure of prints].
    I have thought to reduce fog adding benzotriazole to solution!
    Which could be the effects? has someone tested it?

    The second question is:
    Has someone tried formulas FX37 and FX15 (acutol S) with t and d-grain
    films? I thought to use one of the two diluted 1:3 for portaits with delta

    thanks to all in advance (sorry for my english)!
