Hi Aram,

I usually shoot D3200 at 1600 and develop it in XTOL stock for 7 minutes at 20
degrees or XTOL 1+1 at 9 minutes/20 degrees. These times are in a Jobo
processor, i.e. continuous agitation. Your mileage may vary. If you do not want
to buy a package of XTOL, then I would suggest using the D-76.
