    Tri-X in Xtol 1:1 (LF)

    Hi,

    I'd like to get a starting point for processing Tri-X (5x7) in xtol (1:1). Shuffling 4-6 sheets in a tray.

    I've done a bit of research and have found ratings of 160-640 but nothing was specific to tray processing.

    If you can throw me a starting point I'd appreciate it.


    Best
    T

    Care to expand?

    Why do you like replenished xtol?
    What do you rate your film at?

    Dear T,

    Download the Xtol data sheet. It has the information you need.

    How you process the film -- tray or tank -- doesn't usually affect the developing time. If you were rotary processing, however, you'd subtract about 15% to compensate for the continuous agitation.

    XTOL does, indeed, raise film speed. I used to rate HP5+ at EI 200 when I used to develop in D76. I now shoot at EI 400 and develop in 1:2 XTOL.
