    I'll take a stand on this one...

    NO. It's something you work out for yourself. My experience is with PanF shot normally in the bright California sun, Rodinal 1+200 agitated for the first 30 seconds, stand developed for the next 90 minutes. It gives a very 'graphic' look to the film with no blown highlights, but lacking in most classical midtones.

    Test, test, test.

    You can use the standard dev. time with a film-soup combination and multiply it by the sqare root of two (=1.41) to get a starting point for a stand development time.
    For example, if the normal development time for FP4 in Rodinal 1+100 was 9 minutes, for stand development with the same film and chemical you should start your tests with (9x1.41=) 12.69 = 12.5 minutes.
    Of course, keep in mind that depending on the type of chemical and dilution you use there will be variations of the necessary stand development time, sometimes smaller and sometimes bigger...

    I also use semi-stand development. I use Pyrocat HD for semi-stand development. I realize that Mr king is the father of this devleoper and knows far more than I ever will about it and its usage. I have followed his regimen for semi-stand development as indicated on his unblinkeye website. If you have never visited Mr. King's website, I believe that you will find it to be a real treat.

    Different photographers have different preferences when it comes to developers. I place more value, even though I work in 35mm, on sharpness rather than on the finess of grain. I normally make 6 1/2x 9 3/4 inch enlargements. This is a very economical easy to use developer that provides, in my opinion, the nicest possible results. It works well with normal, semii-stand and stand development. It never fails to delight me.

    I thought Ed Buffalo(SP) was the owner of unblinking eye.

    Maybe you are right

    You know Mark, I am guilty of making an assumption. Maybe Mr. King is not the owner. Mr. Buffaloe, If you are the owner may I tender my apology and congratulate you on your site.

    Whatever the truth of the matter, I have not changed my opinion of neither the website nor Pyrocat HD.

    Yes, the creator and owner of www.unblinkingeye.com is Ed Buffaloe. I just happen to have a few articles there, including one on pyro developers.


    In response to an earlier poster who asked if there are any guide lines for stand development or if there is a stand development massive data sheet the answer is none that I know of. I can, however recommend some experimental times for the procedures that I call minimal and extreme-minimal agitation with Pyrocat-HD. These times are based interpolation of test data using different methods of agitation.

    Minimal agitation – Assuming that you use Pyrocat-HD and find that a time of 12 minutes at the 1:1:100 dilution with normal agitation gives the desired contrast. For minimal agitation multiply this time by 1.35.

    Extreme Minimal – Instead of a dilution of 1:1:100 use 1.5:1:200 and multiply the time by about 4X.

    Semi-Stand – Use 1.5:1:200 dilution and multiply the time by about 6X.

    See my previous message for definition of minimal, extreme minimal and semi-stand agitation.
