In Rodinal it is about 125 ASA, like FP4 Plus. What sort of time is best when diluted at 1:50?
Once I got that right I wanted to pull it 1 stop for 60ASA.

It depends on the scene, and on want you want.

8 to 10min, 9min as a good starting point. If you shot it at 125 ASA then pehaps you will end in 8min or less.

See here:


If tried it with R09 and Xtol, I liked it with Xtol because of slightly better shadow detail and smoother grain, but this is only a personal preference.

Just raked through my little black book. I had 10 min 1:50, but that was for 35mm. I just wondered if 4x5 was any different.
I think the Fomapan 200 is about the best film I have at present. The rest of my boxes are various x-ray films From MDC I figure 8 min for flash use to cut contrast.
