    Developer for TXP320 in 4x5

    17 Jan 2007

    I was sorry to see TX400 disappear in 4x5. In order to find a repacement I have tried some TXP320. I find that they are indeed VERY different films. I have two questions.

    1. I have developed TXP320 in D76(1:1) and Perceptol (1:1) with unsatisfactory results. I have rated the film at EI200 and EI160 respectively (from film testing experiments), and the overall density of the negatives looks good. The problem is that when I print them everyting looks flat by 1 to 1.5 paper grades. Can anyone suggest a developer that might give me a greater gamma without "blocking-up" the highlights?

    2. Should I abandon this film and look for another? If so, what would you suggest?

    Regards,
    Darwin

    I really would simply try a longer dev time in D76 before I did anything else. Keeping all other parameters the same, I would try a 10% increase first and see how you like the results.

    I have always liked D-76 straight for TXP320. Used to keep a 3.5 gallon deep tank, and replenish as needed.

    I only use TXP320 in 120/220 format, but I always develop in Calbe A49 (or Ber49 it's the same) 1+1 10 minutes à 24°C. Wonderful!

    HC110 works for me - I dilute 1:12, develop for 7 minutes (N). This is for sheet film, hangers and tanks.
    Cheers!

    I love it in X-tol, semi-stand for portraits.

    As Suzanne i have used X-tol and also HC110. Best results with X-tol perhaps because i have used it more, still need to work with the HC110 to get it right.

    With Tri-X 320 with a non-staining developer, I use either XTOL or Jordan's Instant Mytol (see the APUG Chemical Recipes).

    Tri-X 320 with a staining developer, I use Pyrocat-MC

    Thanks to all for the suggestions. Since I am most familiar with D76 I will start there and see if the tresults are satisfactory. If not, move on to the other possibilities.
