    Are you using graded paper? Did you leave a filter in the filter drawer?

    No I don't think so. The Oriental and Ilford both take about the same exposure and developing time in the Arista Premium developer. Only had the difficulty with the Cold Tone developer.

    16 seconds at 5.6 on FB is not that long, especially with a dense neg.

    1) That's actually not a lot of light at all. Like I mentioned, some of my medium format negs take 90 seconds to print on 11x14. If you're printing 35mm on to 8x10 thats an 8x enlargement. Not insignificant.
    2) I would not give up on the neg. Try reducing it. It has worked wonders on some of my overexposed/overdeveloped negs. Decide on cutting or proportional reduction. If the overall neg is just way too thick, go for cutting reduction. Plain Hypo and Ferri. And a bright light to keep tabs on the neg as it's reducing.
