emofin with HP5+ and FP4+

greenspun.com : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

I'm trying to get my EI and development time for HP5+ and FP4+ in emofin. So far it looks like HP5+ is somewhere close to 1600 with 4 1/2 minutes in my jobo. Does this make sense? What's going on here that's making the speed increase? What is it giving up to get the increase? Does anybody else have experience with emofin and these films? Thanks in advance...

I did not like HP5+ in Emofin as I like Tri-X in it. I use it (Tri-x) at 800 asa and develop it during 6,5 minutes at 20C. The tetenal data sheets are very good starting points. Are you using emofin from powder or a liquid concentrate ? I use the powder. The advantage of powder is that it is 100% fresh when you mix it and you know it for sure.

Yeah, now I've got different data... I used a densitometer and got that it's 320iso for 3 1/2 minutes at 20 degrees in the jobo.
