    Hi all

    I've got hold of a handful of rolls of 1991-expired FP4. Unfortunately the original packing only specifies times for the film in Perceptol, ID-11, Microphen, and Ilfosol 3, whereas given the age of the film Ilfotec HC makes the most sense.

    Searching the net isn't of any help either because all the results are for FP4 Plus.

    Would anybody happen to have the original times handy, or any experience or recommendations?

    Cheers.

    As a starting point I'd shoot a roll at 64, use FP4+ times, adjust from there. More depends on how it's been stored than the age.
