Recipe & dev times for Ilford FP4+ 125 at 200 in Kodak XTOL 1:1


Kodak XTOL 1:1


Large Format


9 minutes, 30 seconds at 20°C/68.0°F

Recipe Id



The FP4+ have a real boxspeed of ISO200 when used with Xtol.Turn the tank one time at first, and then agitate by holding the tank and make a figure eight when holding it. Then agitate every minute. When I agitate every minute after the first time, I just tip the tank gently head down so all fluid get to the lid, and then turn it back again.

Nice work, beautiful results. Thanks for tip on ISO and agitation. I had never been able to get results with FP4 in XTol. Will give this a try.

So do you shoot the film as ISO 125 or ISO 200? Thanks.

Nice work. I've also gotten good results with XTOL and FP4+ (and HP5).
