    FX2 and Pyrocat HD developing times (semi-stand or stand)

    Hi people!

    Does anyone have good times for Pyrocat HD for semi-stand (or stand) developing? I use mainly Ilford PanF, FP4, HP5, Delta 3200 and TriX 400. What about Delta 3200 in normat development?

    I myself have tried Delta 3200 and if I remember right, it was 1+1+300, 20 Celcius, 60 min. I think that was nice combination for that film.

    I tried to search but the search gave so much to read that I decided to ask .

    Also the same for FX2?

    The product information sheet here might help.
    You might also try the Massive Dev Chart.

    FX-2, half strength, agitate first minute, then after 30 minutes, total 90 minutes. Seems to work for me.

    Thanks a lot for the links, but neither of those doesn't help me as I'm looking dilutions and developing times for semi-stand and stand. I know Massive DevChart but this other link was new for me. So thanks anyway!

    Ole, for what film?

    I'm new with this Pyrocat HD but already have found it to be probably my new fav for developing films. My second is naturally Rodinal .

    EFKE 50, EFKE 100, Pan-F Plus, FP4+, APX100 and Delta 3200 are the ones I've tried so far. They all came out fine, even if the exposure was all over the place (low light photography without a lightmeter is when I turn to stand developing)!

    One of the more interesting things I've seen with stand development is that most films work with the same amount of development time. I usually stay between 1 hour and 1.5 hours and get nice results with Pan F and FP4+.

    With Efke 100, I use the 1+1+100 dilution of Pyrocat-HD (or Pyrocat-MC) and develop semi-stand for 16 minutes at 21C.

    With Kodak TMax 400, I use the 1+1+100 dilution of Pyrocat-HD (or Pyrocat-MC) and develop semi-stand for 18 minutes at 21C.

    My version of semi-stand:

    1. Water Presoak film for 2-5 minutes then drain.

    2. Pour in developer and agitate gently for 20 to 30 seconds.

    3. Stand without agitation for half the total development time.

    4. Agitate gently for 10 seconds.

    5. Stand without agitation for the remainder of the development time.

    Heli,

    I can give you times for semi-stand development with Pyrocat-HD for FP4+, TMAX-400, Efke PL100, and I believe, TRI-320 and HP5+. Nothing oin Delta 3200 or TRI-X 400.

    However, contrast does increase with time of development so if I am going to give you good advice I need to know how you will be printing. Graded or VC silver papers? Pt./Pd? POP? For best results one size does not fit all.
