    Arista APHS Film

    I've read some posts on using this film. I know that Jim Galli has a Rodinal developer formula to use but has anyone developed this film in Pyrocat-HD? Also, not knowing much about this film other than it is high contrast and slow do you have to worry about reciprocity and if so how do you figure it? Considering getting some to try for the 8x10 and eventually the 11x14. Thanks.

    APHS; Arista Process Half tone Supreme. IIRC. My semi-
    educated guess; constant speed +/- some little out to
    a minute or more. Dan

    Dan, thanks. I've never used it so it is nice to ask questions.

    I found Dave Soemarko's LC-1 developer formula fantastic with APHS, giving me tons of control over contrast and tonal range. Details are given in Chris James "Book of Alternative Photographic Processes." I haven't done any real calculations on reciprocity effects, but I haven't run afoul of the "law" with exposures over a minute.
