little help: agfa apx 25 development

Discussion in 'Darkroom Developing and Printing' started by Stefano Bramato, Mar 13, 2005.

  1. Hallo ineed just a litle help or some suggestions.
    I need to develop an agfa apx 25 and my soups are Hc110, Xtol, id11 and
    Someone can help me in some starting point for developing or I've to use
    Rodinal as datasheets? (But i don't like rodinal in 35mm format)

    I suppose to start with my usual starting point: 8 min in ID11 @24°C but ehm

    Every help or suggestion is very appreciated.

    Here's a site with some information:

    They've got times for XTOL, ID11, and Microphen data, but not HC110
    (unless something else there is an HC110 clone). I can't vouch for any of
    that information, though, as I've never used APX 25.

    That sounds much too short for D-76 to me - 13 minutes at 1:1/20°C is
    what I always used to use.

    That´s far less than the recomended time at digitaltruth for the stock

    The times shown are WAY too long.

  8. Forse forse il Newsgroup serve bene e Andrew Price oggi dice che...

    Maybe this is stock solution.
    BTw i'm trying with 9 minutes id11 @24 °C and seems right but i need more try.

    Hallo guys!
    I found with some experiments my times for the APX 25.
    It took just two rolls and four pieces but the satisfaction is great---

    I someone is interested can read below.

    I found APX 25 a meaty negative and I like so ooooo much.
    I undervaluated and don't used since now, but now i think is a very very good
    Just a little contrasty (but ok for my Durst M605 diffused light) for my
    personal choice but a very nice tones and grain.

    So for my diffusion enalrger i found this times very satisfacting:

    Microphen type developer 1:1,
    (recipe as suggested by mr Knoppow for id68 found now my personal standard)
    9 1/2 minutes @ 24 °C

    HC110 B
    7 minutes @ 20 °C

    D76/ID11 type 1:1
    14 1/2 minutes @ 20 °C
    or 10 1/2 minutes @ 24 °C

    ciao guys!!
