A couple of months ago I decided to try Efke-25 developed with TFX-2. I decided on a semi stand development meaning I aggitate for the first 30sec and 5sec every 3min after that the development time is a painfull 20min. For the most part I love the results I'm getting. When printing the 4x5 negatives on 11x14 paper the detail is almost painful!! I also love the highlight compensation that I'm getting. The only problem I'm having is that every now and then when I take the negative out of the combiplan tank there is a brown film on the emulsion side of the negative. If I "scrub" the negative while it's still wet I can get the film off of the negative. If I let it dry I might be able to get it off by sandblasting the negative but I wouldn't count on it. Even when I get the film off of the negative they still have a metallic look to them. Does anyone know what the film is, how it's formed and more importantly how to prevent it from forming in the first place? If it makes any difference I use a water stop for 1min and hardening fixer.
