    Works just great for me! ISO 100 and developing by inspection gives nice results - no danger of blown highlights

    Just got a box of Efke PL100 and was thinking of using Pyrocat-HD instead of ABC.

    Any ball-park times? When do you start looking?

    Thanks

    Since I mostly develop by inspection and don't use a timer, I have no precise times...

    However, I did two batches in JOBO tank (inversion, 1.5liter solution): The first, at 9 minutes, was too thin for my taste; the second was a bit too much at 12 minutes. Somewhere around 10.5 minutes seems to be right.

    When I develop in trays, I can usually see the negative (poor light-proofing) after about 6 minutes. Four more minutes sounds right(ish), but this is (more or less) continuous agitation.

    I don't use any kind of safelight for this, just my sloppy lightproofing. I have not seen any tendency to fog on any of the film I have used so far, but I did fog one when I tried with a dark green safelight after 8 minutes development...
