    Does anyone know what kind of results happen when using a Jobo processor?

    I use a Jobo tank by hand. HC-110 can be very firey if over shaken. I do 5 initial inversions and then only 2 inversions at 4 minutes and 2 at 8 minutes and pour out at 12 minutes. Continuous agitation would loose some of the advantages of the minimal agitation approach. ie regular grain, boosted shadows and tamed highlights.

    Where did the Dilution H come from, Kodak only shows up to Dilution F?

    It is "unofficial," that is, not from Kodak -- I think an outgrowth of the information at the Covington website. I use it all the time as a one-shot process.

    ColColt if you're interested in HC-110 dilutions I have been using this method from JBrunner and love it:

    I've never tried it as a concentrate"straight from the bottle". I've always went by mixing a stock solution 1:3 and drawing my working solution from there, in most cases that's been Dilution B. Developing times are short-about 5 1/2 minutes. Much more and they come out too contrasty or at least they use to. Using a scanner instead of the sane way to make prints is a little different I've discovered. For one thing the quality just doesn't look the same as when I made prints from Tri-X.

    After looking at my best attempt to get these negatives flat and try another scan they still don't look as good and sharp as my old 20-30 year old Trix-X negatives.

    HC-110 was designed to replace a number of other developers in commercial applications. The idea was that it could be used at different dilutions, with each different dilution being similar to the commercial developer (D76, etc.) that it was replacing. If you use it with a different dilution, it will behave very similarly to dilution B, except for the development time.

    You don't need a syringe to measure 6 ml - just use a small graduated cylinder (35 ml) and pour enough concentrate to raise the level of water in it by 6 ml.

    I have two Pipettes that will hold 45ml so that would work well. I also have a syringe that will hold about 1 3/4 ounces I've used to measure such developers and Photoflo.

    Col colt, i recall someone from a german photo magazine recently making the case that wet prints with top-of-the line enlarging lenses outperform even the best scans.

    If you search for "Rollei RPX 25: Grain and Resolution" you will find some info there. Henning talks mainly about the different films and their resolution figures, but i think he mentions the superiority of the wet prints vs. scans somewhere.

    That's better phrasing than a similar version I heard a long time ago:
