    Hi all,

    I've looked and looked but can't seem to find any developing info for this
    combination of film and developer. I've exposed a couple rolls of 120 at
    320 Tri-x pan pro (not regular Tri-X/TX 400) and all I've got on hand is
    Rodinal. Any experience with the combination (and potential push times)
    would be greatly appreciated.

    Rodinal is not a good developer for pushing and in fact will not give you
    an EI 320 with TXP. EI 200 maybe. I'd try 1:50, 12 minutes at 70F.

    For general pic's people, homes neighborhoods, etc. I would recomend shooting
    the TXP @ 250 rather than 320. I normally develop TXP (@250)
    1+85 dilution for 17min @ 68f. I would start with 18min 68f with the first roll
    and see how it comes out. Then procede with the others with corrections to
    your time you may feel necessary.

    I normally prefer TX it seems to handle the highlights better out of doors.

  4. I always use Rodinal at 1:25, and 6min with standard agitation and
    68deg temp will give excellent results.
