thank you for explaining it. I think I'm getting it.
Do you mean several tests or you just know it and can do it in one attempt?
So you can pick up a brick of unknown Tri-X, develop it "as much as possible"
First time I always do a test of 5 developing 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.

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.
