Is there a specific niche that this film fills? I tried to look it up but I'm not seeing much. It looks interesting though, definitely looking forward to see what you can make of it.

It's supposed to have high contrast and good sharpness, will see. I keep going
back to this guy's work, my nick there is funrazor:

Yes, an M6 and Summilux, but love the contrast and acutance. He wouldn't say
what he used to dev these, only that it smelled, and cheap as chips Lucky 400 film.
Thinking he might have used a Pyro of some sort.

Anyhoo, his results are my ideal when it comes to processing, be it 35 or 120.

I have Ilford Pan, but find it much too grey and dull.
Rollei Pan 25/EFKE 25 for me, was a much better film.
They have stronger contrast, and are orthopanchromatically sensitised.
Best developed with compensating developers to tame the contrast a bit.

Thanks, Martin, I do have Diafine and Thornton's 2-bath I could try.

Never tried those developers...I realise now I have been a total tool - why was I thinking of Ilford Pan-F? :frown: Sorry. Ignore my post, as I clearly didnt have coffee this morning yet.
