Those of you familiar with the use of Pyrocat HD: for significant minus developemnt, e.g. -5, what works best: shortening the develoment time, using less of the B solution, or reducing the agitation to only every second or even 3d minute? Do you recommend (and why?)any or all or a combination of the above?
As bonus question(answer): which film in your experience works "better" with strong minus development, HP5+ or Tri-X (or whatever it is called now).
I should mention that I am interested in this info related to printing (enlarging) on V.C paper, not for an alternative printing process. I develop my 4x5 sheetfilm in a manual inversion JOBO (antique!) tank, with the film on a reel.
Fred P. would say "try it yourself" and I appreciate that point of view, however your comments will probably get me on the right track a little quicker, and as a result I can spend more time on fine-tuning my chosen method.
