    Anyone have a time for this combo? There's nothing at MDC and I'd like to give it a try.

    OR...what is your fave for this film?

    I use pyrocat HD 1:100 or a little bit stronger (1:75-1:100 -my measurements arn't precise) for 20 minutes at room temp. It works really well for me at this. I also use d-76 (1:1) or x-tol (1:1) with this film and it also works really well. There seems to be only a minor difference with x-tol and d-76 (A little more contrast with x-tol).

    I use 2:2:100 for about 6 min, or 1.5:1.5:100 for 8 or 9 min depending on the subject.
    I tend toward "punchy" negatives, a lot of folks use 1:1:100 for something like 10 or 12 min, near as I remember


    I shoot this film at 200. All sheet film. dunno about roll.

    I develop it in a Jobo, with continuous agitation. I use a 2:2:100 dilution. I expose for lots of shadow detail and develop for 7 to 9 minutes depending on scene contrast. Pyrocat is great for this film in that it provides beautiful negative with printable highlights. The highlights can get away from you with a normal developer.

    Take care,
    Tom
