    I'm starting to shoot a few sheets of Gevaert Gevapan 33 (have 100 of them) and need a starting time for development in HC110, I was thinking 8 minutes, but wanted to hear what others thought.

    Thanks

    I saw that link last year, and I have used HC110 before, its not my first time using it, so it doesn't help me at all. I just need a starting time for this film in HC110 from someone who has shot this film and developed it in the developer.

    I was curious, and did some looking around.

    The only info I can find for the film gives times for acutol and roll films: http://www.photomemorabilia.co.uk/Paterson/Paterson_Acu_Range.html

    That gives times of 11 minutes for 35mm and 12 minutes for 120.

    If you look up Acutol on the Massive Development chart, it recommends a bunch of times, but they include 12 minutes for both FP4+ and T-Max 400.

    What HC110 times do you use for FP4+ and T-Max 400? I would probably start out with the FP4+ time.
