    PYROCAT-HD Starting Times (APX100, SFX200, FORTEPAN200, anything else)

    Due to my lack of ready cash (limiting my ability to waste film on lots of testing) and preference to stand on the shoulders of giants: In my mind not Adams or Brandt but all of you who contribute to forums such as this, I would like people to contribute Pyrocat-HD starting times for films that are not covered on Unblinking Eye, the Digital Truth Massive Dev Chart or other online sources.

    My first requirements are for APX100, SFX200 and FORTEPAN200 times. These are films that I regularly use but I would also like to see other films such as HIE, NEOPAN100, NEOPAN1600 etcetera covered.

    So then, can people please contribute to this thread with ALL times that HAVE or HAVE NOT worked with Pyrocat-HD for all films?
    Mr King has provided a great tool for us, lets get together and make it more useful.

    SFX is a no go. it is a C-41 fikm. drop it at your local processor.

    I'm not sure but I think is not a C-41 film.

    SFX is a b/w extended-red film, thus the "special effects" name.

    You are thinking of XP2. So many films (still), so little time to test them all...

    If you search under pyrocat you will find lots of times and comments come up. I tend to soup for longer than most and find that at 1:1:100, APX100 is pretty good for 16ish mins at 20 degs C. Will give decent negs (I rated at ei of 64).

    Thanks Tom, I devved the APX100 (EI80) for 8:15 @ 24degC and the SFX200 (EI200) for 10:00 @ 24degC. The APX100 is OK but some of the high contrast scenes look too contrasty. The SFX200 was way overdevved.

    If you will let me know what kind of process,(s) you use to print I will provide some recommended development times for Fortepan 200, which I have tested and used. Unfortunately, I have no experience with Neopan or with APX10o or SFX200.

    Pyrocat times

    Hi, I find HP-5+ at asa 250 comes out about right at 9-10 mins 24c in a CombiPlan tank and intermittent ( 6 lifts per minute)Agitation. Depends on the scene contrast levels. In Albany ( Western Australia ) at the moment it is continuous rain, so I'd be increasing the development times. PC-HD is great for holding back those harsh Oz highlights in summer. Welcome to LF addiction.Where in Australia are you?
