    Rollei Pan 25 - what developer ?

    Hi all,

    I have a few rolls of Rollei Pan 25/120 but don't know what developer to use. I've used D-76/Delta 100 for years but not sure if D-76 would be a good fit with the Rollei. I also have some Blazinol I've never tried (Rodinal replacement), and the Maco website suggests Rollei RLS which I don't have...

    Any recommendations ? If I use the Blazinal, 1:25 or 1:50?

    Thanks

    Paul

    Rollei Pan 25 (v2) after approx. 2009 is equal to Efke 25 film. So you can use succesfully Rodinal, Tetenal Neofin Blue, Beutler or FX-1 for this slow speed film.

    Rodinal. RODINAL. Or Adonal. Or any other Rodinal clone.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    Rollei Pan 25 (v1), introduced approx. in 2005/2006 was a modified NP15 emulsion from OrWo Filmotec. This version was a little bit less grainy and the film could be succesfully developed in any Pyrocatechine developer. Here an example (35mm) in AM50, a Pyrocatechine non-staining developer of Amaloco.

    The Rollei Pan 25 I purchased and tried just last year was definitely not Efke 25; but I did use both
    on the same trip, and developed both in my usual PMK pyro with excellent results.

    I used Adotech with great success but it has since been reformulated.

    Rodinal / R09 o.s. 1+50 and Efke 25 / Rollei Pan 25 (v2) is around 8 minutes while the Rollei Pan 25 (v1) is around 11 minutes. So using the new version (2) on the old Rollei Pan 25 data sheet you will have as result a severe over-developed film.

    So 8 minutes at 20C ?

    And why 1:50 instead of 1:25 ?!
