    Film Dev Times (Fill in the blanks)

    Hello guys.
    To simplify my life in the darkroom I have put together a page of the times of the two developers and the films I use. I have binders with all the information I get from the manufacturers' pdfs, film boxes and the Massive Dev Chart but to make it easier for me I put them together in a page a la Ilford.
    The films and E.I.'s I list are the ones I use regularly so far:
    Ilford PanF+, FP4+, HP5+, Delta 100-3200, Kodak Tri-X, T-MAX 100-400 and Agfa's APX 100. Unfortunately films like the Bergger, Fujis, Efkes, etc are not found at all around here (even though I have tried BRF 200).
    I use D-76 for general developing and Rodinal for that extra character. Even those two guys I have to order so I only concentrated on those (around here PQ Universal and Ilfosol S are easily bought in the stores but I don't like them).

    Can you guys help me fill in the blanks?

    For those not already aware of it, try the Massive Dev Chart at DigitalTruth:

    Of course, as always, these are starter times - you will need to tweak them to fit your methods and equipment.


    Cheers, Bob.

    Boy, are you correct, Bob. I relied on that Web site's time recommendation (16 minutes) for developing Acros 100 in Microdol-X diluted 1:3 and my negatives were flat, showing insufficient contrast. I added 4 minutes and finally got great negatives.

    Bob, the Mass Dev Chart is not an answer to everything as it doesn't list -ALL- the possible Film-EI-Developer-Dillution combinations and often skips some importand ones as it is the case with Tri-X 320. I've included all the ones I could find on my sheet if you were carefull to read the introduction and that's why I am trying to "fill in the blanks".

    Just providing the link and a word of warning Aristotelis. Not everyone has heard of it, or knows where to find it.


    Cheers, Bob.

    I apologise if I misinterpret your post and showed a bit of "attitude".

    Cheers indeed!

    I found a strange and wonderful combination for MACO UP 100+: 4 minutes in FX-2, then 6 minutes in Pyrocat-HD 1:1:100. Better shadow definition (well - higher sensitivity, really) from the FX-2, with the enhanced highlight separation of Pyrocat-HD. Nicely stained negatives with a tonal scale long enough for POP, while still great for graded papers. It handled a shadowed mountainside with a sunlit glacier on top - without getting flat midtones. Details were super all across the range (18x24cm film, Symmar 240/420 lens at f:16).
