Developing Kodak Technical Pan

Post by jsngenda »

I've acquired a bulk roll of Kodak tech pan and was wondering if anyone in the forum has any experiencing developing it without the specific kodak developer-- I've picked up some microphen based on the recommendations from the unblinking eye ( ... chpan.html) that I'm going to try and use, but if anyone has any advice to offer, I'd appreciate it.

You can access old data in the chart by using either the Advanced Search, or you via the Discontinued/Unlisted page here: ... scontinued

I was given a load of the 35mm and 120 rolls but only recently got round to using it. I tested the 35mm first as a short length and used my 'Very Old Dark Brown RODINAL' 1+30 for 10 mins @ 20oC and got good negs -- I COULD have rated film at 40 ASA even instead of 25, So I loaded a 120 roll in my 1984 Mamiya C220 and tested it with the same processing and got amazing resolution ! Be Careful though -- MY RODINAL; was NOT 'Fresh' so if you use 'FRESH' it may be too strong at 1+30 with agitation only once per minute.
Got COMPUTERISED and 'slightly Digitised Pentax K10D' but FILM STILL RULES !
