    Best Tech Pan gallery?

    I want to see what is possible with this film. I shot a couple rolls like...15 years ago and liked what I got.

    Who's the best "Techy"??

    Yes, I know it is dicontinued. I bought the last 4 bulk rolls from B&H. Have about 4 more coming from another source.

    Excellent film, in my opinion. Super sharp! Very contrasty, however when developed in Technidol developer. I would use 80% of the time recommended by Kodak and rate the film at EI = 32.

    Agitation is stricky ... follow Kodak's directions carefully.

    Hope this helps.

    Here's one of mine, circa 1985. The scan isn't so great, but the detail in the print is pretty remarkable. As with K-25, I eventually gave it up when I learned it was easier to get just better results by using a bigger camera. Of course, if I were really obsessive, I could use Tech Pan in 4x5" or 8x10" (which is really expensive compared to other kinds of sheet film), but I don't really make huge enlargements, so I can select a film more on the basis of tonality than issues like grain or the resolution of the film.

    I think I've got a three-pack of Technidol lying around somewhere that I don't need. PM me your mailing address, and I can send it to you.

    If you 'google' search the name Hugh Milsom, he is a photographer who uses Infra-red and Tech.Pan films.

    My good friend, Phil:

    From 35mm:

    I've seen the actual print and you can clearly read the small text off the charts.
