    Can anyone recommend a starting time for this combo? I am curious about 35mm and 120. I've seen times for sheet film but not roll film. I print with the newer cold light head from Arista and use mainly graded (#2 and #3) Forte Fortezo. Thanks heaps!

    Hi Mike ... I am developing for about 15 mins using the partial stand method with FP4, but this is for a "normal" condensor enlarger, and with my own Pyrocat mix which probably isnt as exact as the ready mixed versions.

    hope that helps?

    I just went thru this about 3 weeks ago and we had a thread on the forum. My time for 125 asa is 11.5 minutes, 1:1:100.

    Of course your reuslts will vary and require testing, but for me 9min, 1:1:100 @ 68 degrees, agitation 10 seconds every 60, with an E.I. of 64. I've been using alot of roll film lately, nearly all this film and developer, and I'm quit fond of it in 120 now in addition to 4x5. Hope that helps for an idea of were to start, and good luck!
