    Hello,

    I use ID-11 in a 1:1 solution and have a boatload of Fuji Acros 100 film to develop but I am having difficulty finding timings for it.

    digitaltruth has a timing for stock of 6.75 minutes but not 1:1.

    I am not keen on the idea of using stock as it will use up my ID-11 too quickly.

    Does anyone have a 1:1 timing??

    Cheers and thanks in advance,

    Ant

    Does DigitalTruth have a time for 1:1 D-76? ID-11 is essentially the same.

    Failing that, I'd suggest checking Fuji's PDF on Acros.

    The last roll I did was ID-11 1:1 for 10 minutes @ 20C..... Looking again at the negs... you might want to start with 9 minutes as my are a little too done.:tongue:

    The Fuji site lists D-76 1:1 @ 10.5min @ 20C. this works well for me.

    Across 100, 1:3 will make your stock last.
    I'd likely go 1:7 but do not use ID-11. D-23,
    which I do use works well at 1:7; 500ml,
    1, 120 roll. Dan

    If you look at Fujifilm's data sheet, you'll notice that the ID11 times are a bit shorter than the D76 times, a little less than 10% shorter. So you might try the D76 1:1 times minus a bit.

    However, I must say that I've not been happy rating Acros at E.I. 100. I've been using it in D76 1:1 lately, but rating it lower (and am experimenting rating it at 50 and pulling the time) and am liking it more that way.

    Hmm, I googled my little conundrum and found some notes here and there. There were a couple that suggested 8.25 mins so I tried this however I think this maybe underdone for the following reasons....

    The fixer had a slight pink cast to it after use in the Acros 100. The washaid was totally pink too.

    After squeegeeing (sp?) the film I always run the film between my (clean) fingers and it felt very sticky.

    I think I will try a film at 9 mins and see how that works.

    I had a quick look before drying and the negs look okay but I will do a scan of some negs to be sure!!

    Comments please....and thanks for all the responses so far, very much appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Ant

    the fixer and wash aid should have some pink in them but the film should come out of the wash with a grey base when done. I can't comment on the sticky quality when wet.
