    Since grain is a problem with the new APX400 I'd give it a shot in Microphen.
    DDX 1+4 for 16 minutes gave me good results, and IIRC that is almost equivalent to Mirophen 1+1
    So Microphen 1+1 for 16 minutes should be in the ballpark
    Mama took my APX away.....

    I know my response will not help in the situation present. Also, I realize that it is bad form to answer a question with a question. Still, if asa 800 is required why not use Delta or Kodak 3200 which has an honest rating of 800?

    A friend of mine works at a professional lab doing nothing but developing film. They use Xtol at full strength. He tells me their dip&dunk system has a seasoned tank, which depleats the strength of the Xtol a little bit, due to residue from film, and other factors. They basically keep replenishing it.

    In the case of APX400 at EI800, they normally run at 7min10s. He estimated about 6 to 6-1/2 minute with freshly mixed Xtol at full strength, developed in normal daylight tank with normal agitation patterns.

    Hope that helps,

    - Thomas

    You can try the times listed here for Rodinal. It's in Finnish, but the times are easy enough to read :-)

    Ah, so I am not going nuts - the new APX400 is a bit of a beast compared to the old! I thought maybe I was just seeing old prints through rose cooured glasses!

    If you've got one chance to do it, try D-76 1+1, 18 minutes @ 68. Agitate once a minute.

    If you've got a second roll, PPPLEASE shoot it at 800, and cut a strip off and try the development.

    good luck
