Unlike Harry, I'm a strong proponent of using HCA for film. It cuts washing time, and it makes it much more likely that washing will be complete.

Greg Davis did a bunch of tests on the variables and posted the results in this very long thread:

If nothing else, I think that his results show that it makes sense to use HCA with film.

To the OP: feel free to contact me if you would like to talk about this stuff.
