    anyone used this combo?
    I've read the results with chs and efke,
    but not with this specific one.
    If so, can you please share the dilution/times/ei used?
    135 and 120, but more interested in the first at the moment.
    Thanks a zillion in advance!

    Yeah, thanks: saw that as well.
    But there are some negative comments here on that, so I thought I might ask of anyone actually having used the combo before I stick my neck out on some cms20...
    :wink:

    Pity the Adox developer ain't easy to find here...
    Still: got some efke 25 coming in, might try first on that one. Seems to have a larger range of options for Rodinal in the MDC.

    I’m sorry for posting the obvious. I have never tried any on the extreme high resolution films, but a friend has shown some interest in these products so I have done some reading on the subject.

    Since you don’t have access to Adox proprietary developer, one option you might consider is to mix you own POTA developer, either the original or the modified POTA (www.photoformulary.com/uploads/01-0075.pdf).

    Nuno,

    You also could get in contact with a fellow member of us who got this webshop

    http://shop.fotohuisrovo.nl/index.php?language=en

    He has not the apt developer for this film in stock, which is SPUR Orthopan Nanospeed UR, but he has in stock other developers of SPUR and might get you that very one too.

    I did some shooting with the time given on the chart. It's very very very high contrast if you develop it as they suggest in digitaltruth. Barely printable.

    OTOH, fun to scan.

    Thnaks for the feedback, folks.
    I'll look up the alternative sources for adox developer.
    I'm curious about the "fun to scan" comment: in what way?
