Developer- film combination

  1. I use an agitation scheme that is close to what Ilford specifies, 4 inversions of my SS tank in 10 seconds per cycle. I perform one agitation cycle immediately after the developer is added, then 2 additional cycles each 30 seconds, after that one cycle each 60 seconds. I also run my chemistry @ 72F/22C (adjusting time according), and tend to overexpose about a half stop. I tend to get reasonably contrasty negatives with Ilfosol 1:19 and HP5+, so it seems one or more of my practices here are helping to that effect.
  2. I've used TriX 100 in Ilford DDX stand developed for 45mins @20c in a Patterson tank. Only agitation is 10 times at the start of the process then that's it. Mixture ratio is 1:9.
    I agree it's not a cheap developer but it works great. Grain is minimal and has good contrast. scan greenwich 002.jpg

  3. Where are you getting that TriX 100?
  4. Perhaps it's meant to be "T-Max" 100
  5. The edge markings certainly look like TMX 100, but where's the '5052' marking?
