Tri-X Exposed at E.I. 80

Hello!

I recently finished a roll of what I thought was Plus-X, only to discover an exposed roll of Tri-X in the camera. The entire roll was exposed at ISO 80. Wonder if people have recommendations for how I can get the best out of this roll when developing. For reference, I typically use D-76 1:1 and occasionally Rodinal 1:50.

Thanks in advance for any input!

Looking at the Massive Developing Chart, at an E.I of 50, you may try 7 minutes D-76 1:1, 68F. At an E.I of 100, 13 minutes D-76 1+3, 68 F.

I did a test with Tri-X developed at full strength shooting it at 400, 200 and 100 ISO. It all came out great! The shadows were a little blocked up at 100, but it also gave a look that I liked.

Try half or slightly less the e.i. 400 development time. You could try D76 1+3 and take a clip and develop that and adjust from there. There are times in the Kodak data sheet for Xtol for e.i. 100, which should be about right for e.i. 80 for that developer.

Developing as per normal might not cause too much difficulty for wet printing, but it will make scanning very difficult.

Mine scanned and darkroom just printed fine. The difference is not that great.

It's Tri-X! I'll look around and see if I still have the test in my files, but I doubt it. Anyway, as I said, I liked the look at 100 (was shot at 50 with a yellow filter).

Tri-X is normally shot at 200-250 anyway, so we're only talking a stop and a little bit over "normal".

It's good to know its legendary exposure latitude extends to another stop when pulled. Agreed on the typical speeds - I shoot it at 200, at least when I'm paying attention!
