Hey folks, I'm about to develop a couple of the View Camera Store film tests in a Jobo 3006, using Ilford DD-X for the first time. I'm trying the DD-X on Fred's recommendation and the test specifies a 1:6 dilution which makes me nervous because I don't know what is the minimum amount of stock solution necessary per 4x5 sheet.
The Ilford tech pub for DD-X says at 1:4 1 litre of stock should be good for 16 rolls 35mm, 36 exp. I think 1 roll of 35mm is about the same area as one sheet of 8x10, so... It seems to say that 1 litre of stock should do 64 sheets of 4x5 or that I should need just about 16ml per sheet.
Do any of you have experience using DD-X at 1:6 in an expert drum and, if so, how much solution do you use per sheet?
