Agfa APX100 pushed to 400 in d76

Post by Neopras »

Hi guys,
I accidentally left my camera iso setting on 400 while shooting a roll of agfa 100...

I'm planning on developping it in d76 (only dev i have) and since there are no dev times posted, i'll use the digitaltruth rule of thumb of "two stops over = time x 2.25" which gives me 25 minutes in this case.

Does anybody have any suggestions or has anybody already tried this before?

Before Ornie jumps in to tell you to throw your film away, it's ruined, film cannot be "pushed", I would suggest that you do either a clip test or shoot another roll at same ei. I can't remember ever using Apx 100, though others could probably give you more advice on this. Is your plan to use D-76 undiluted or diluted?

2 stops is quite a bit, but you can try D-76; I can't give you a starting time, tho'. You could try Acufine, which gives a time of 9 min. for EI 400. This would be rather expensive to do just one for of film. Can you re-take these photos at the paper setting?
