I'm about to develop my very first roll, a 35mm Foma 100 in R09 One Shot.
Just wanted to check with you guys:
1+50 dilution for a 290ml tank would mean 5.7ml R09 + 284.3ml water.
Film was shot at iso 100, light measured with a Minolta light meter, so exposure should be spot on.
9 minutes in developer, with agitation first 30 seconds then 4 times each minute. (massive dev chart + bottle gives 8-9 minutes, "film dev times" app and other online guys - 10:30 minutes)
No stop bath, perhaps some vinegar?
Fixer - Fomafix, 3 minutes (prepare just 290ml and use it for just 3 rolls in 1-2 months or do the whole bottle - 3 litre working solution and use it for 30 rolls as per instructions, but 30 rolls would mean more than a year for me as I shot mostly color)
Tank would be a Paterson system 3, that comes with agitation rod, should I use inverse mode agitation, or stick to the agitation rod?
Increasing developing times means overexposure and shorter dev times - underexposure.
More agitation - more contrast and shorter dev times, less agitation - less contrast and longer dev times.
Do I have it right?
