    Hey,

    When I shoot a Trix400 at ISO2400, dev charts shows:

    Tri-X 400 HC-110 B 2400 16 20C

    I was thinking to use the same agitation scheme I use for stand dev in HC110.

    So the first 4 minutes every 30seconds agitation for 15sec and then every 3min agitation for 15sec.

    Or do I have to agitate differently when I shoot TriX400 way over boxspeed? Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    Yes, I have shot testpics. But I thought when there is some agitation scheme that must be followed like constant agitation, than I know my scheme will not work. Anyways, I'll give it a go and post my results.

    Thanks!
