    Adox/Efke 820 and Xtol

    Hi all,
    I'm about to give my first rolls of ADOX/EFKE 820 a go since the end of my stocks of Kodak HIE. I'm shotting 120 format using a 89b filter and exposing at around ISO 3 (incident reading) with +1 and +2 stops bracketing. I'm intending to process in Xtol stock, any suggestions for a starting development time? I'm thinking around the 12 minute mark as I've seen a few suggestions on the net that this is about right. Does anyone have experience of this film in Xtol?

    The data sheet sez X-Tol 1:2 for 16 minutes at 20C. (You have read the data sheet, haven't you?) With that, you can make a decent guess as to what the time will be using the stock straight.

    Aha! The datasheet I saw made no mention of Xtol, just a rather strange set of developers I'd never heard of, and part of it was in Croatian too. 16 minutes is a good start, thanks for that.
