    d76 processing

    I recently started processing at home and mixing my own chemicals, I mixed .9 lbs of powder with 1 gallon of water, but am unsure of the processing time...is it 1:1 with water after this initial mixing at 10 minutes, or 10 minutes as is?


    also, can either xtol or dektol be used for paper developing?

    Processing time depends on dilution, processing temperature and film, among other things.

    Check out this Kodak web site for more info specific to D76:

    Hope that helps,

    It depends on the film. I use 1+1 all the time and 10 min. should be pretty close with almost any standard film.

    It also depends on what type of tank you are using for processing; with rotary processors the required times will be shorter than for inversion processors. It is worthwhile doing at least a film speed test, and probably a test to determine normal development time, which will also give you N+ and N- times for use with the zone system.

    Your tri-x time and temp. should be close, using 1:1 you may extend development times a couple of minutes depending on the density of the negative you prefer printing.

    Dektol is the Kodak standard for paper processing, also diluted with water.
