    HCA saves time and water, and helps ensure archival washing.

    It isn't the only way to get an archival result, but it is one good way.

    If you want to read lots of interesting information about washing film, including the role that HCA may play, you might want to read through this sticky thread: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum37/8...hing-test.html

    Thanks for the link, Matt! I'm using a hardening fixer (Kodafix), so it looks like HCA was a good idea, as I did get some slightly yellowish spots on my first rolls after 20 minutes of washing.

    They're not snake oil. Use them, and you can use a shorter wash. Don't use them, and you need to use a longer wash. That's all there is.

    They are of minimal utility if you use an alkaline fixing bath, but few people use one (and not many more are even that familiar with them). With acid fixes, they save a lot of time and water.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?
