Until Oriental Seagull was no longer available, I settled on developing 120 FP4 or HP5 in PMK Pyro and printing on Seagull VC. For the past 10 years I have been printing digitally and where from negatives have used Colour Negs processed at a lab and then scanned on a Polaroid Sprintscan. However I also scanned in most of my Pyro developed B&W negs and have successfully printed these digitally.
I have now resurrected my darkroom and have shot a lot of FP4. I am wondering however whether PMK is the best way to go if you are going to scan the negatives. I normally scan at 16 bit RGB, and colour casts etc. can be easily eliminated. As far as I can tell the resulting images seem extremely good to me. However would a developer that produces no stain result in a better scanned file than one that does stain? I appreciate that probably I shall have to test, but the pain of working out new times etc. with a new developer film combination is something I do not look forward to. So I wondered if anyone here had any thoughts on the effect of the Pyro stain in the context of scanning.
