    I could find nothing on this site and nothing on massive for this combo. I have a 1L pack of D76 I could mix up but would like to use up my XTOL first. Any help would be great. I emailed utrafine and their reply was that they will not give out any info regarding the film. Do my own searching for the proper times. OK. I Guess they want to keep the real manufacturer a secret. poor customer service if you ask me but hey what can i do.



    thanks

    If a retailer said something like that to me, I'll be sending the product back. Development time for film is a basic information that supposed to come with every film. Not providing is not only a poor customer service, it's well beneath that....

    My best guess is the Ultra fine is Forma, use the time for Forma's verson of Xtol, should work.

    I think that PDH means "FOMA".

    I assume you have seen the chart of development times on Ultrafine's website: http://site.ultrafineonline.com/dev.chart.pdf

    The suggested times there for the Ultrafine Extreme emulsions are fairly close to a number of other films (eg Tri-X 400). If you have X-Tol times for them, those times are probably a good starting point.
