Re: Infrared film

The Rollei 820/400 IR film you can just use handheld. At least in my Yashica Mat 124-G and in my M7 (Leica). Use the film with a Hoya 72R or Heliopan RG 715 IR filter.
E.I. around 12.

Re: 'Outdated Film' developer

Here the receipt for the Beutler A+B developer. Box speed, high acutance and very suitable for the Efke/Adox 25-50 and 100 single layer films. It's one of the easiest developers for DIY: You only need 3 components were the Sodiumcabonate Na2CO3 can be often replaced by household soda. In Europe it's...

Re: Agfa MCC and Rollei Vintage

Rollei Vintage is Foma paper and the Fomabrom Variant (2005) has been made on the MCC layer which comes from Agfa Photo. Well in fact from the same supplier (Schöller) in Osnabrück but Foma got the material very cheap because Agfa Photo was in bankruptcy. Rollei-Maco bought in 2005 the whole APX100/...

Rodinal in 1+150 for 6:30min. will give reasonable results. Agitation first 30S continuous then every 30S 1x slowly. However the speed is going down to iso 12-15. Even with 1+150 the film tends to a steep developing curve. With ATP-DC and RLC the curve is bended down but if you have no alternative d...

ATP-DC is optimized for Rollei ATP film (Advanced Technical Pan) and is therefore a low contrast document developer. It will give reasonable results with other high contrast films (micro films or ortho films). I think it's a waste of time and material to use it on a regular medium speed panchromatic...

With an 89B or 88A IR filter this film is around iso 1-3.
These are 695nm resp. 715nm "black" infra red filters. Without filter the film is iso 100. Some data:

Yes, Kaiser is also an option, like the Durst M805 (6x9) and Laborator L1200 (4x5".) However the Durst are more difficult to build over for Split Grade. The V35, Dunco, Kaiser and Kienzle are more modular based and easier (=cheaper) to adapt.

If you stay with 35mm: Leitz Focomat V35. If you planned to go in MF: Dunco II 67 or Kienzle 67 or 69 Best lenses: Rodenstock or Schneider although El-Nikkor can be also very good. The V35 has a WA 40mm Focotar and is also auto focus. I am working with 35mm, 6x4,5 and 6x6 and panorama 24x65mm so I w...

All three developers are OK with Neoapn 400. But with Rodinal the E.I. must be around iso 250. If you want full box speed for the Neopan 400 film: Use Xtol/Excel W27. Neopan is more flexible with the E.I. compared with Delta or Tmax but gives slightly more grain. If you're talking about 35mm you cou...

Yes, you can E.I. 100 in Rodinal 1+50. It looks like an APX 100 then but a waste of money for such an expensive B&W slide film.
