    Again, looking for experiences with this film / dev combo. Just got my first batch of the film, and am looking for something "not too exotic" to soup it in while I try it out.

    Brian, all my experience with this film is with Pyrocat-HD. I would expect it to work ok with D76, but without the ablility to build contrast that a staining developer provides.

    Tom, do you use it in a jobo with pyrocat? if so, do you have a starting time / temp? Do you use the time listed on J&C's site?

    Brian, I use a SS tank with 120 rollfilm and I tray develop the sheet film. The J&C recommendation is 13 minutes at 68F in Pyrocat HD (2:2:100). That is within a minute of my develop time for the 2:2:100 dilution with 5 seconds of gentle agitation per minute. I will check my notes (they are not here with me) for semi-stand dilutions and times.
