    Has anyone developed Arista EDU 100 in DD-X? This film & developer combo isn't listed on the massive dev chart. I have two sheets of 5x7 I want to develop today and I'm out of everything except DD-X.

    it is, but no on that site. Looks like 1+4, 20C @7:30. I'll give it a shot. I didn't know it was the same thing.

    That didn't work at all. Negatives where VERY dark with a faint image. Need to test this further.

    I just recently tried Arista/Foma 100 in Ilford DD-X with beautiful sharp results and a full range of tones. Use the develop times printed on the Arista box for TMax 1+4. I prefer DD-X at 1+9. Simply double the DD-X 1+4 time. And as always, your results may vary so don't try this with anything important yet.
    I use it at box speed. DD-X at 1+4 is too hot.
