    Hey guys, the Kodak Plus-X info sheet only gives regular development time and 1 or 2 stop push times.

    I am looking to PULL it down to 80 (I have already shot 2 rolls at 80).
    OR at least some kind of math needed to pull 125 to 80. It's like ~1 stop? A little less I think.
    I do believe there should be a % decrease of development time. There SHOULD be some kind of formula?

    Cheers,
    - Matt

    well, the rule of thumb is about 15% less;however, many folks just use the standard times for pulling. It depends on how much testing you have done to determine how your equipment is working with the box speeds.

    If this is a seriously critical roll, shoot another and do a clip test.

    what developer, don't get below 5 minutes or you risk the chance of uneven development

    Hey,

    D-76. I usually go 1+1 but if it's shorter than 6 minutes I'll just dilute to 1+3.
    Thanks for the note though :)

    I'd go D 76 1:1 for 6 minutes. But that's just me.

    Use Diafine, it has just almost fixed time, so about 6 minutes or 8 minutes whatever ISO film speed you use.

    No. It's toxic and I'm strongly against it.

    I'm going to do some test rolls in D76 and Rodinal and decide. I have both developers on hand.

    I have Plus-X waiting for developing, and i will use D-76 as well, i still didn't open that Diafine box yet, but i think i will not push/pull this film, i shot it at normal box speed, so do your test and show us.

    D76 and Rodinal are also toxic. Virtually all commercially available developers
    are. And, so are many household cleaning products and other stuff around the
    house and garage.

    I'm aware. However I use doth my developers 1-shot and Diafine are exceptionally horrible for the environment.
