    Delta 400 and Pyrocat

    I'm shooting 120 and looking for any times and dilutions. Based on some info I have read, I'll probably start with a 2:2:100 dilution as I am alt printing Ziatypes. I use the sodium based "B" solution.

    Is this Delta 400 sheet film? If so I was not aware it was still available.

    Sorry I can not read.The 120 is plain as day. Just thought if you were contact printing ziatypes you might be be using sheet film.

    Yes I will be contacting Ziatypes, but off of film enlargements to Bergger BPFB19, again developed in Pyrocat. Right now an 8x10 camera is out of the question. Beside, I think that I'd rather have a 11x14 when funds are available.

    In that case you have considerable latitude in developing the in-camera film since you will be able to expand or contract contrast in making the enlarged negative. I would just develop the 120 Delta 400 for a time that should produce a negative that would print well on silver, and then expand the contrast when making the enlarged negative. Try about 12 minutes with the 1:1:100 dilution of Pyrocat-HD for scenes of normal contrast.
