I am a beginning photographer and need help. I pushed Ilford 125 FP5+ to 1600. Can anyone tell me either a developer that will work and if possible, point me towards a chart or give me a time and dilution for using HC-110 developer?

Thank you

If you go to our main page at and follow the link to the Massive Dev Chart, you will find a push processing chart listed in the menu on the left-hand side.

You will get some negatives from this roll, but pushing a medium speed film this far will not produce a great result.

In my opinion, HC110 Developer, is too high in contrast to do a good job of pushing that film that far.
I recommend Clayton F 76plus to do that job. I can give you the times and temps if you contact me.
