i usually use my 130 1: 5 or 1:6sh when i shuffle sheets of film ..
Tom Hoskinson has experimented with 130 a bit too, and he
suggested i dilute the developer 1:10 .. i am just spreading the joy

4. Ilford HP5 5x7
The negs all look much better than I had hoped. If I have time tonight when I return home I will scan them to see if my first visual impression is right.
I diluted 1+4 and the full cycle was between 3 and 5 minutes. Next time I'll try 1+10 upon John Nanian's advice. Slow it down a bit, avoid uneven development.
