I use Ilford HP5+ for my pinholes. I rate it at iso 200 and dev in xtol or id11.
ID11 seems to produce the better negs for print for 4x5 pinholes. My times in ID-11 are 1+3 for 13 mins. NOTE: I only ever shoot pinholes in bright light. At F132 which is near F150 this gives me an exposure time of between 1 and 10 seconds but its normally 4 seconds (these times include reciprocity failure). My two reasons for using HP5+ are that its available in Gunns at a good price and it also has lots of exposure latitude

Have fun


That's very useful information about the film.

I don't want you to go to too much trouble on the exposure calculator but if you feel that you could put something together for me I would be eternally grateful.

I'm looking forward to this now!
