    Favorite Tri-X (120) film-developer combinations

    Hi Everyone,

    I'd like to solicit postings describing your favorite Tri-X (120) film-developer combinations (whether it be 320 or 400), and why. Also, please describe if it's for portraiture, landscape, etc.

    Thanks.

    I use the 400 asa Tri-x and then develop in D76 1/1 for 9min 45 seconds, makes a nice fine grain neg.

    I use Rodinal at 1:50 for both. TXP 320 rated at box speed mainly for portraiture, 400 pushed up to 800 for street work. K

    Could not agree more. Tri-X (400TX) and D-76 is a classic combination. I rate the film at box speed and run it at 75F with a correspondingly shorter development time of around 7' 45". If the light was very flat and dull, I'll add another 30 to 45 seconds. If the light was hard and bright, I'll cut the time back about 1 minute. Agitation is constant for the first 15 seconds, then vigorously for 5 seconds every 30 seconds. Base time is strictly by the book and it works like a charm.

    My EI for TRI-X 400 is ISO 160 and I follow more or less what Frank said for processing. I've got very good results but I mostly shoot landscapes.

    HC-110 dilution H at 11:00 (20 degrees C). I rate it at box speed.

    I like it at box speed in Xtol or D76 at 1+1 in a Jobo (so my times won't help you, as really no one's will). It also looks very nice in TMAX developer at box speed.

    I've never been enamored of it in HC-110, at least in roll-film sizes.

    Tri-X 400/120 EI 400 in Pyro-HD 1:1:100 — 20°C - 15 min — normal agitation, good for objects with lots of structure like trees, stones, tools, buildings/monuments, skin (elderly people) etc...

    Tri-X is probably the most flexible film made. It pushes well and can be develped in just about anything. My faves are Rodinal and D-76, 1+1; although these have a very different look to them.

    I'd like to try it in some of the pyro/cat devs, just to see what's there.

    Tri-X in Rodinal 1:50 just for the honnest grain and the sharpness I get, esp. with 35mm.

    If I need fine grain I use MF anyway or go to LF.
