Kodak Panchromatic Separation 2238

Postby jrletranc » Wed Apr 13, 2016 9:27 am

Hi everyone! I'm searching dev times for Kodak Panchromatic Separation (ISO 25) 2238 film, but i can't find it (the Kodak page only show information of how develop this film with machine), does any one has developed this film in D-76 (stock)?

In this site i found that someone developer with D-76 (1:1) for 10 minutes, but I usually dev in stock It's more contrasty
My last resourse is try to guess the dev time by cutting some strips of the film and develop (with light on) in intervals of 1 minute and guess the best time (this method is the same as i used to guess the dev time in very expired old film, check the link below 8) )
¡If you have any idea please let me know!

This film is for making separations from color originals. I doubt it's worth messing with. Why doesn't anyone want to use conventional materials? They will give better results with less effort. Manufacturers spend millions of dollars on research and making the best products for specific applications. The characteristics of the material are optimised for separation work, not pictorial photography. It has a clear base, not a grey base, and so it would suffer more from halation.
