    The first few rolls of Tri-X 320 I developed have a clear base. The last roll has a very light grey maybe a little pinkish tint. I'm wondering what the causes could be. I been developing and washing the same way. D76 1:1 12.5 minutes. Acid stop bath. Kodak rapid fixer for 10 minutes constant agitation. 3 minutes in HCA with constant agitation. And wash for 5 minutes.

    Thanks
    Chris

    I've been using the 4x5 version of TX320 for 70 sheets now. I had one run of six sheets that was a bit pink, did not really see it until I pulled them out of the dry area. i've rewet, refixed and rewashed again, they look better. Might be worth doing. To my fault, I stretch my fixer way to long, until I see something like this, then I do a new batch.

    I second Lee's comment.

    Pink negs = not enough fixer. I get that with TMax films, which I've found need double the 'normal' fixing time (YMMV)
