    Pushing tri-x 2 stops, some advice

    OK so I did low-light shooting indoors and I pushe tri-x in 120 2 stops (ISO 400 to ISO 1600). The lighting was flat so blowing highlights in't an issue and since this is 120 film, grain is less of an issuel.

    I usually just use d76. I've used Rodinal in the past, but I think D76 gives me more speed (which is probably consistent with most people's observations). I've used xtol in the past (but not for pushing) and didn't like the grain, but this was for 35mm film so that experience is less relevant. So I'm thinking of batching up some xtol, microphen, or just sticking with d76. Any thoughts and opinions on the differences in speed, grain, and tonality? I fear that diafine, which I believe gives 1250 or so speed is going to be too flat.

    I do this almost exclusively. Love me some Tri-X at 1600 in rodinal stand. 2hrs 45mins or thereabouts depending on light. Some samples in my gallery.

    what are the advantages for stand development? It is one of those techniques that I've never quite understood. I figured that it is better for high contrast situations like bands/concerts/etc.

    I may see how this thread evolves and test a few rolls playing with 2-3 different techniques.

    I use stand/semi-stand development because I can do other things while it develops, I like the workflow.

    I use Rodinal 1+125 for 1.5 hrs to do a two-stop push. After the first hour I swirl it real gently for fifteen seconds.

    I haven't done any real testing with it myself, my technique comes from here.

    Acufine, Tr X is rated at 1250, add 30 seconds for 1600. HC110 + 100%.
