    FP4, PyroCat, Extreme Minimal Agitation Times

    Hello Everyone,

    I've searched and searched but have found few threads with any development times and dilutions for FP4, Pyrocat HD, and Extreme Minimal Agitation in tubes. I'm developing for both silver gelatin and Azo contact printing.

    Thanks in advance,

    Are you looking to prnt on AZO 2 or AZO 3? We can match VC silver paper to AZO 3, but AZO 2 has such a long ES it has to be treated differently.

    Alex,
    I shot about 75 sheets of FP4+ in 4x5 and developed it with this method for contact printing on graded paper. Unfortuneatly I can't find the notebook I used. I'll make a real effort to find it this weekend and post the times. I'm the type of person that would loose my ass if it wasn't attached so I wouldn't get my hopes up. Best. Shawn

    Grade 3 please Sandy. Also, is 1:1:150 the dilution to use or is it something else?

    Alex,

    For VC silver papers and AZO 3 here is what I would suggest for extreme minimal agitation with FP4+. Dilution of 1.5:1:200 at 72F, four agitation cycles.

    SBR 8 25 minutes
    SBR 7 35 minutes
    SBR 6 60 minutes

    Digging up an old one.

    Sandy, do you still recommend the same for Pyrocat MC today? Do you have comparable recommendations for HP5?

    I don't think Sandy King is around here any more. I'd suggest trying to contact him through his photography website.

    How does minimal agitation in tubes work? Do you fill the tubes up to the top?
