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

Thanks. Diafine is pretty easy, but I don't get quite the 1600 EI with TX that they recommend, more like 1000. I've never been able to get the lifespan out of mine that some folks do. It was recommended on APUG that I use a pre-soak for all divided devs. I have started to use that and so far, so goo...

You have under-exposed your film. Nothing can be done.

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

Tri-X (TX) is a 400 speed film. This has been set by Kodak. TX likes to be exposed at or near 400, depending on lighting conditions and personal taste. When you expose TX at an EI other than 400, (EI is exposure index, not the same as ISO. If you have your meter set at 400, but shoot TX at another s...

Re: Increasing Exposure Latitude in B&W 35mm film

You can use Rodinal, thousands of other photographer do. You can dilute it up to 1+300, but 1+50 to 1+100 are the most common. It can give you great negatives...if you know what you're doing. You can also use a staining developer like Pyrocat HD or WD2D. Yes, the negs come out stained. This stain he...

Re: Acufine as one shot: dilution? time?

A good place to start for times is right here at DT; just go to the Massive Dev Chart. Acufine can be used at stock or 1+1. Grain will be increased, as will contrast, but it may allow you to get a photo when you couldn't otherwise. Most of my Acufine images look "pushed", especially going to 3200. T...
