    The smallest Jobo reel (System 1500) needs 140ml for rotational and 250ml for inverted processing.

    That's good, but without the need to use a dark bag - ie: cartridge in -> negatives out, it's a really efficient and cost effective process with my Agfa.

    Wow. I just stumbled across this long running thread and was surprised to find nobody mention that the lack of anti-halation layer gives it a look similar to Kodak's HIE. I LOVE HIE. I only wish I got into MF before Kodak discontinued it.

    Anyway, if I was to use this film I would be polishing up my pressure plate real good !

    Yeah I considered that but wondered if it might not give TOO much halation and really wash out the image, anyway worth experimenting as the film is so cheap.

    I have shot about 25 , 24 frame rolls of this film. I shot it from 25 to 400 apeed. All were developed in D76 1 to 1 at around 72 degrees for 8 minutes for the slower speeds and up to 12 minutes for the faster speeds. I got my best results at asa 50. Negatives at 400 were thin although more developing time might fix that. If you shoot anything bright white or light in color in direct sunlight, the white will flare out. I've had very good results shooting it on overcast days. I like using this film. J.

    Really nice results for a cheap film.... This flare in highlights remember me the Lucky 100 and may be useful for high key prints...
