    Been shooting alot of Arista EDU Ultra 100 and 400, both 120 and 35mm. It's cheap and I absolutely love the look of the stuff.

    Your film should have come with a chart of regular developers listed with times. And if not, the data sheets for the developers should list some times, and check the massive dev chart, all available online with an easy google search.

    Shoot, Claudia, the Rodinal 1:50 for FOMA 200 is 10:00

    HC-110(B) is 3:30 but again too short....

    Microphen stock is 5 minutes and 1+3 is 12:00

    Sorry for miss reading your original post
    You're right, I could have easily searched with Google and looked at the massive dev chart, but while I was here, I thought it'd be interesting to hear other users' experiences, since I think that Apug is a community full of incredibly experienced and talented film photographers.

    No problem about the misunderstanding xx

    I actually prefer D-76 or a derivitaive for Fomapan.

    My other tip with Fomapan is to use a water stop or very dilute. I have had pinholes show up on 120 Fomapan with too-strong acidic stop bath. Now I only use water.

    Thanks for the tips, much appreciated

    I'm not familiar with this developer, I guess you have to mix it yourself and I have never done it before, but thanks for the imput

    Claudia-the formula will definitely be on a site somewhere. It's in his book Edge of Darkness [Argentum Press]. Also see the Film Developing Cookbook [Anchell and Troop].

    More lovely XP2 for me.

    This week it was homemade dry-plates in 8x10. In a couple days and weather permitting I hope to produce some plates in 5x7 for another camera. I still have a gob of dry-plates that I made for half-pate & 5x4 that I need to burn through. I have yet to try indoor still-life using these, something I wanted to do for quite a while now. Ultimately I would like to try my hand printing these on hand-coated paper.

    I've used Fomapan 200 in 35mm roll film, shot in low contrast lighting I exposed at EI 200 (in normal contrast EI 160, and high contrast 100).

    The low contrast neg received HC-110 Dilution H, for 14 minutes, which was probably about 2 minutes too much. I would recommend 12 minutes.

    For normal contrast I developed for 10 minutes using Dilution H, and high contrast 8 minutes. I normally don't cut development short for high contrast scenes, but the Foma films build contrast so quickly that highlights are quickly blocked up if proper care is not taken.

    Hope that helps. It's a wonderful film with great texture, beautiful tonality, and a nice grain.

    I'm using a lot of GP3 at the moment, and I shot another roll today in a Horseman 6x7 back on my 4x5 ZeroImage
    I'm not sure I will buy more. It's good stuff, prints well, has nice grain, but the curl makes it almost impossible for me to handle without damaging it; Contacting it is almost beyond my patience

    I shot my first few sheets of Ektar and waiting for it to stop snowing so I can stop plowing and shoveling (3 days now) and develop them!

    I also shot some FP100C.

    Shot some Acros100 in my new 6x12 pano back today for the "transportation MSA" just 3 "bracketed" exposures, so I'll have to shoot something else. I hardly ever bracket anything ESPECIALLY Acros100 in LF $$$ but since it's 120 and it was a long exposure with light I'm not familiar with, I decided it would be interesting to get both the shadows in one shot and the subdued highlights from another to see how both would look.

    Developing this weekend yes!
