    Double X and Ilsofol S

    Hi,

    I have a few double X rolls to develop and unfortunately i only got ilfosol S here in iran. i searched digitaltruth and the net for proper developing times but i can't find any info for ilfosol S. digitaltruth only has dev times for Ilfotec DD-X.

    anyone can help me out?

    Look at other films with Ilfosol-S and extrapolate from there.

    really, though, you just can't go wrong. A little over or underdevelopment here or there will not kill you, especially if you use a scanner. Go with 6 minutes @ 20c and you should be ok.

    Pushing a 200-250 speed film to 3200 is a 4 stop push you might not get anything useable. The most I have done up to is 1600, and I didnt have good results and that was with Xtol and Rodinal semi-stand.

    I dont have much experience with Ilsofol, but I dont think it is a high speed developer intended for this application of such a push. You can try adding 20% more time for each push you do and work it from there.

    Good luck.

    You may find that info here:

    http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru...highlight=5222

    http://www.project-double-x.org/devdata.html though isnt listed, may led you to an approximate time as well.

    I am working my way though 1000ft of this, and so far my favorite combo is to do 1:100 in rodinal semi-stand, for 1hr- 1hr30min, 2-3 flips at the halfway mark and to say a small prayer to the film gods when I open it up. been working so far quite well.

    thanks for the links. i know that site. i went there already and found nothing for the film.

    i wish i could be able to get double X again since these rolls are my last in my stash.

    hopefully i could be able to get some other developer next time. maybe should try to make parodinal but not sure where to get chems here in our city.

    Nothing special there. Just Paracetamol tablets and caustic soda (drain cleaner) and sodium sulphite which you might be able to find sold as a dried fruit preservative.
