    Updated time for Foma 100 - 510 Pyro 1:500

    There seems to be a growing group of 510-Pyro users out and about, so for those who care (or have cared, or will care, or are within 5 degrees of separation from caring) here are my updated times for developing Foma 100 (Arista.EDU Ultra 100) in 510-Pyro 1:500.

    Most of the film I shot in Japan was in overcast/very flat light, and the negs are turning out very good with this time (very good "local contrast", but less blowing of the highlights than in the last times I used).

    Anyway here's the time for roll film (120) in a tank:

    Develop for 1 hour, with 3 gentle inversions at the start, and 3 gentle inversions every 15 minutes (4 total inversion cycles).

    My contact sheets so far show extremely good results, though the negs look a bit denser than what I usually get with 510-Pyro. I might have to dial down the contrast a bit on some prints, but overall I'm pleased.

    Please excuse the randomness of this post; I'm still jetlagged from the trip to Japan (woke up at 3 in the morning today, did some studying, read the newspaper, cooked breakfast, and though "what the hell, I'll go post on APUG").

    How are you rating the film? I've always gotten woefully thin Tmax negatives using this developer with any dilution greater than 1:200.

    I rate the film at box speed, so e.i. 100 . I've found that 510-Pyro negs can look thin, but print well; but at any rate, these negs look good by the usual standards (and SHARP!).

    I've noticed this too. It's amazing. I think it's because of the heavy stain.
