    Been fun developing roll film at using Jason Brunner's Kodak HC-110 made simple instructions (http://www.jasonbrunner.com/hc110.html).

    Does anyone have developing times for Tri-X 400 @ ISO 200 and APX 100 @ ISO 100 using Jason's dilution and developing directions?

    Thanks,

    Jay

    Dil E (1:47) on the TriX rated at 200 is around six and a half minutes according to the Massive Dev Chart. Nothing for the APX100 at 1:49. However at Dil B (1:31) it recommends seven minutes. So you might be running somewhere in the ballpark of nine or more at 1:49.

    I have used 400TX rated at 200asa and developed in 1:50 HC110 @ 20 deg.C. Agitation was 30 sec. continuous initial and one inversion per minute after, using a small tank. I print with a cold light source and on graded paper so my set-up may not match yours. This maybe a ball park figure for you. Have not used APX100.
