    So what does everyone think of the Kodak Tri-X in Paterson FX-39 combination?

    (exposed at ISO 400, 120 film).

    Am torn between developing it in FX-39 (for the first time) or HC-110.

    Would like to hear any thoughts!

    Cheers.

    This is a great combination. Try FX-39 1:9 for 9 minutes at 70 deg. Great tonality, sharp detailed grain, but not offensive. For high contrast scenes, try 1:14 for 12 minutes at the same temp.
