    CIAO Stefano,

    Times for 1+100 are going to be in the order or 20 minutes (20C).
    Agitate the first 30 secs and then once every 2 minutes

    Thank you for your advice but this time seems for an E.I. of 400. How much I've to decrease for a E.I. of 200?
    And, again, is the same for 400tx and for 320txp?

    Bye

    Stefano

    Times should be about the same for TX 400 and 320

    The beauty is that you can control contrast with agitation more than anything.
    start with a time of 15 minutes then check to see if the negatives are sufficiently developed
