    HeliH, with FX2 this is what I read. 1:1 stock to water. Stock is 50ml of A & 50ml B plus water to 1 liter. Agitate 60 seconds, leave alone for 45 to 90 minutes for slow to medium speed films at 68deg. Use a water bath if necessary to maintain temp. TFX2 is suppose to work better with the tabular and faster films. Fog is noted to increase when using FX2 with faster films.

    In past stand developing regimes I usually pick a temp that suites me such that it is easy to maintain and not too far off from the darkroom temp. such as 70, 72 or 74-5 and base my times on that. As I shoot LF as well, I was able to pull a neg at whatever time I wanted. Maybe cut your roll and pull a test strip at 45 minutes. If it's not close to what you want add 10 minutes (or multiple) to the time for the next strip. Contrast changes take about 10 minutes.

    I just got my TFX2 and am looking to develop a roll of Tri-X within a night or two.

    Just a quick question! Were these recommendations for 72 or 68F? Thanks!

    FP4+
    high contrast scenes, 25 minutes
    medium contrast scenes, 35 minutes
    low contrast scenes, 50 minutes

    HP5+
    high contrast scenes, 40 minutes
    normal contrast scenes, 50 minutes
    low contrast scenes, 65 minutes

    Times for TRI-X 400 should be very close to those for HP5+, but I have not tested this. I don't have anything for the other films.

    Tom, what EI do you use with this method for TMax 400?

    Many thanks

    Hi everyone, I haven't been online for ages, but now have my lines working again.

    Sandy, thanks a lot for the times, I will try them. I've found Pyrocat working well with HP5 1+1+300, 20 C, abt 50 min (semi-stand). No matter what I've shot, looks just great and is really easy to print.

    I'm printing on Ilford MG RC and also on FB papers.

    All,

    I need some assistance please.

    My stock of pyrocat HD just arrived and I plan to use it on :

    1) HP5+; and
    2) Lucky SHD100

    Both are 35mm film.

    May I know are the times suggested by Sandy below for 35mm film or 120?

    In addition, what should I use as a starting time for Lucky SHD100. Any suggestions?

    Thanks a million!

    This is based on a dilution of Pyrocat-HD of 1:1:150 for semi-stand. That is, initial agitation for 1.5 minutes, and them once again for ten seconds at the 1/2 point of total development time.

    FP4+
    high contrast scenes, 25 minutes
    medium contrast scenes, 35 minutes
    low contrast scenes, 50 minutes

    HP5+
    high contrast scenes, 40 minutes
    normal contrast scenes, 50 minutes
    low contrast scenes, 65 minutes

    Times for TRI-X 400 should be very close to those for HP5+, but I have not tested this. I don't have anything for the other films.
