New Delta in Patterson FX39 : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

Does anyone have any dev times for new Ilford Delta 400 (120 rollfilm) in Patterson FX39 developer? I have them for the old Delta, but am not sure if they are different for the new emulsion.

Many thanks.

Ed: I don't have the times for FX39, but in my developer, Delta 400 (new) requires considerably less than 400 Delta (old). The reduction in time is about 25%. I can also add that Delta 400, for me, requires slightly less time than Delta 100--9 min vs. 9.5 min. Hope this helps.

Thanks for that, Ted. I've found a similar thing for my regular developer. It would be interesting to know what the advised times are for FX39 and the new film...
