My HC110 developing time chart for various films
Note: some times shown were established for older versions of films, and they may have changed. Use this chart as a starting point for your own investigations. It should be accurate for 35mm Tri-X shot at ISO 200 which I use regularly. If you're not familiar with the Zone System, use the N column for your developing times. The N+ times will increase contrast for use with overcast days, etc, and the N- times will reduce negative contrast to handle high-contrast scene lighting.

My XTOL developing time
I have used XTOL only with 35mm Tri-X shot at ISO 200. The developing time that works for me is 7 minutes at 68 degrees using XTOL diluted 1:1. Note that this is SUBSTANTIALLY shorter than Kodak's recommended time.
