The time is for 1+1 dilution as in the original posted question.
Sorry, misread that.

Re: Kodak tri-x in d76 wrong time table

For ISO 400, the time of 9 mins 45 seconds is correct at 20C/68F. This is published in most of Kodak's data sheets. If you are using a different time, please explain which data sheet it comes from and whether you have tested it. The time posted in our chart has been widely used by many people over ...

Just get a precision scale. They're easily available.

Again, the term full tonal range. It is generally recognized that this is unachievable when pushing, though I must say that Appleyards photo using diafine was really fine-looking.
That's equivalent to saying you can't push film. It's a myth!

Re: 120 Tri-x @ 1600 in HC-110

I tend to agree with Ornello. Film has only one speed with a given developer. To say I exposed a given film at an EI of 1000 really doesn't tell us much. What light meter was used? To what standard is the meter calibrated? Was it reflected light or incident light that was measured? How reflective w...

Re: Is my Microphen formula correct?

The formula I have seen which seems most authentic was posted by pentaxpete. He said he got it from an Ilford employee just as they closed their plant in Brentwood IIR correctly. Hopefully he will reply here soon. Sodium Tripolyphosphate 3.4g Sodium sulphite 100g Sodium metabisulphite 0.65g Hydroqu...

Re: Is my Microphen formula correct?

I got a copy of the SDS sheet from Digitaltruth. It states that Hydroquinone and Boric Aid are chemicals of the developer of Microphen. This is very strange to me,because the US Military would not use Microphen if its make up was that similar or close to D-76 or D-76d. Because they have tons of D-7...

Re: Is my Microphen formula correct?

I am updating my last post. Here is the defined Ilford formula for Microphen, base on the research so far. Phenidone 0.2-4 grams Sodium Sulfite 90 grams Glycin 5 grams Sodium Carbonate 2.0 grams Borax 2.0 grams Water to make 1 liter I feel two to three week is needed to go through the files at the ...

Re: FX-39/Acros addendum questions

Hello A note attached to one of the FX-39/Acros times takes me to an addendum supplied by Michael Scarpitti with his revised time recommendations. I am new to this and need a few clarifications: 1. No temperatures are listed. May I presume that the temperature for these is 20 degrees C or 68 degree...

Re: FX39

ornello: Our film developing schemes are almost identical. The only part I am ambivalent about is the prewash. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. As I have said before, I shoot mostly 120 as I prefer the bigger viewfinder image. What is your preferred film with this developer? I have been using Ult...

Many thanks! I develop with the intention of scanning the negatives. Should I reduce the development time?
I would not recommend scanning B&W negatives. It doesn't work well.

Thanks for your detailed helpful reply. Have you tested Ilford FP4+?
Not yet, but I would suggest 1+17 for 7 to 7.5 minutes to start.
