When you push or pull reversal film (E.g. Tri-x) can anyone tell me which developer do you perform the actual push/ pull process? For negatives it only goes through the developer once. But reversal you use the developer, then bleach then develop again. Which one do you alter the time/ temperature process? Or is it both?

Hi Philip,

it is the first developer only that needs to be adjusted.  Indeed, in the entire reversal process, only the first developer is time critical - everything else is 'to completion'.

good luck

Thank you!

 

....Now I'm curious if diafine will work in a reversal process.....that would perhaps allow an additional stop or 2 without must increase in grain theoretically.

I tried it -- Diafine is too soft as first developer. Use a paper developer in lower dilution for pushing. I prefer Tetenal Dokumol in 1+6 or 1+7.

The Dr5 Chrome lab say they can push process tri-x 2  stops.
