    Anyone know where I can get development times for this BW film for 25, 100, and 400?
    I want to try it at home and have been looking for the Nikkor reels.
    Thanks

    Do you mean the pre-packaged "Minopan?"

    I use 6.5 minutes for the ISO 100 film in a modified JOBO reel, rotary processed in T-max developer at 24 degrees C.

    I believe the Minopan is Agfa APX. I use the developing times for that and have had good results. I'm currently using Ilford Perceptol and really like it.

    I found a couple of Nikkor Minox-size S/S reels on Ebay a few years ago. I recall they were a bit pricey, but s/h Minox prices have come down a lot in the last few years since then.
