    Clayton F-76+ works very well with HP-5+ when diluted 1:19. I souped some 35mm last night exposed at ISO 800 and results were great. Plenty of shadow detail. Can't comment on the grain until I enlarge them, but that should be no problem with your 120 film. You can get F-76+ in various sizes from digitaltruth.com. It's pretty close to my favorite devolper, Ilford DD-X, but a fraction of the cost.

    Does PC-TEA compare to XTol in regards to the easy push you can get to 800 with Xtol and HP5?

    Rodinal is my standard developer for HP5+. It responds well to the higher dilutions and I use sodium sulfite to reduce grain a bit. HP5+ also does well in D76 diluted 1:3 but the processing times are a bit long for me. I've also used FG7 at their standard recommended dilution (can't remember what it is right now) and it works well too.

    For HP5+ shot at 400 ISO I like to use HC-110 dillution H (1:63) at 68 deg.F with 5 sec adjatation every 30 seconds. For N+1/2 I do 11 min and N+1 12:30. I don't shoot at 800 ISO much but I think 12:30 would get you normal development. I used to use dillution B or D but the times were too short.
