    I recently purchased some freestyle edu ultra [foma]. Need to have starting times in pyrocat for the 100 and 400 speeds. Iwill probably use a rotery processor. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I have only times available for Tanol (staining developer 1+1+100) from Moersch.

    All on 24 degrees C.

    Fomapan 100 iso 64 11:00 min.
    Fomapan 200 iso 125 12:30 min.

    The effective E.I. rate of the Fomapan 400 in Tanol is very low and not for practical use.

    Hopefully this helps a bit.

    Best regards,

    Robert

    Why keep us in the dark? Let's hear about it! I ordered the same film [I'm a cheapskate] . Loved PMK, but love pyrocat more. I'm just an old retired fart that fell in love with photography around the age of 8 or 9. Wow!! I remembered something!
