Hi Delphine,

You can find Pyrocat-HD developing times for
several films, including FP4+ and BPF 200, at the
end of the article "An Introduction to Pyro
Staining Developers, at

This article was translated into French as
"Introduction aux révélateurs colorants au pyro"
and is in the French language site Galerie-Photo,

That data for FP4+ is very sound and his been
consistent with several different testings of
different emulsions. I can not say the same about
BPF 200, however, as my testing has given some
rather wide variations in results with different
emulsions of this film.

Let me know if you have any questions.
