    Do you mean several tests or you just know it and can do it in one attempt?
    First time I always do a test of 5 developing times.

    Test exposures on different sheets or few inches apart on roll film and cut them apart for different development times.

    Later, as I go along, I just include a test exposure in with regular runs and "double check" what I was aiming for versus what I got.

    I'm going to do tests using flash at full power to lower flash duration + gel to bring color temperature to 4500K. Film I'm going to test will be Fuji Neopan 100 Acros (120). I have 3 developers available xtol, hc-110, id-11. I 'm not sure which one I will use yet. Any suggestions are very welcome.

    I will post results here early next week.

    thank you very much for all input and help !

    This is result of my test. I finished last night.

    film used: Fujifilm Neopan Acros 120
    developer: HC-110 1+63
    temperature 21 C
    light source electronic flash Yongnuo YN-560 II with 1/4 CTO to convert to 4500K (attached pdf with flash power vs. flash duration test) - I used 1/125s shutter speed to photograph step tablet.

    I have no previous experience with film testing - any advice, suggestions would be most welcome.

    If test data looks all right I will do the last test to determine normal EI.

    thank you

    That data appears fine Tomasz. You have a good portion of the toe for each curve which is something I failed to achieve during my film testing (I had to extrapolate the toe area on my 5 curves and enter 'dummy' data).

    thank you Peter,

    I will use N development time from this test to perform the last test to determine normal EI.
