    12-13 minutes for diffusion enlarger printing, agitating every 2 minutes.
    This is good for TMax 100 too.
    Xtol 1+1 at 68 degrees.

    That's nearly exactly what i take for 100 ASA with ACROS.... 2 inversions every minute though.

    I do ten minutes for EI 100. But it is up to each and everyone to test. There will be variations in lighting conditions, meter accuracy, shutter accuracy, water quality, on and on and on - variables that affect the outcome.

    Do your testing.

    thats the solution. Testing. Measuring between spot and integral meter often differs 1 stop in my situation. So with spot i use IE50 and with an integral meter IE100. My Time for across is 12min (with 1:1:100 pyrocat hd).

    Sorry, may be a little late. You can find HP5+ in Bangkok.

    I accidentally shot a roll of 120 acros when I thought I had a roll of Tri-X in the camera. I developed in Diafine and the pictures turned out, with an expected lack of shadow detail but otherwise attractive grain and tonality.
    f/22 and be there.

    Thanks everyone.

    Hopefully I won't have to do it, as photographing interiors is a big no-no here in Bhutan, and it's super sunny every day. But it's good to know I have the option.

    Personally, I have no problems pushing Acros to 400.
    I do *cough*scan*cough* these mostly though, and they look very normal.

    To get this photo this gritty and contrasty, I really had to alter the curve after scanning, because I did have details in the shadows and the highlights and it was much flatter looking

    This is 35mm

    I used HC-110, Dilution B for 10 minutes for this, I've also tried dilution H for 20 minutes with 120 and those also came out very nice.
    Negatives to look a tad overdeveloped though (a bit thick), so maybe 8-9 and 16-18 minutes respectively is better.

    If you look furter in the album, you'll see how foma creative 200 asa fared (ei 200), much much darker for some reason (HC-110 dil. B for 3.5 minutes as per MDC)
