    Current options for tech pan development?

    Ideally would like a technidol substitute for 0.5 to 0.6 contrast index times/etc. ISO 16-32.

    Must either be something off the shelf from the follow:

    Current Kodak (excluding HC-110) or Ilford developers, Rodinal, Adotech II, LP Docufine

    Or something mixed up. Have phenidone, metol, hydroquinone, the usual.



    Must give times, must have even development without issue (pre-soak no pre-soak?).

    No test roll to run through, only a single roll.


    edit: Just found the info sheet for the LP Docufine, which has times for Tech Pan at different ISOs and gives the gamma for each one, so this is probably the choice for now (iirc its the same developer as Rollei RLC?)

    I did some many years ago in Rodinal 1+100 that came out nice. I forget the developing time though. It was almost 20 yrs ago.

    I'm with Chris on the Rodinal, but other will chime in and some will even advice against Rodinal for another developer. I think the shoots Chris has up speak for themselves. Years ago it was Rodinal 1:200 for me and I've heard of folks even going to 1:300(tried it too) for TechPan. I know the 1:200 worked fine for me, but you have to make sure you use enough volume/concentrate of developer since your diluting it down so much. I have a box of the liquid technidol packets that I'm saving just in case I run into some TechPan, but I'd have no problem using Rodinal if I didn't have it. JohnW

    Dear Athril,

    I use C-41 developer for 8-1/2 minutes in my Jobo (10 minutes using Kodak normal agitation technique). This was stolen from an old Photo Techniques Mastering Black-And-White Photography Vol 1 and it works wonderfully.

    Would the Bluefire police developer sold by Frugal Photographer work?

    There's a time and dilution Kodak used to publish for XTOL that was glorious on Technidol. However... EI 6.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    This seems the obvious answer. From Photographer's Formulary.

    Sorry, my calibrations for TP are for T/O XDR-1, from the Darkoom Cookbook. Basically 1g of metol per liter and very little else. Notes are at home, but I can gather if you express an interest.
    I bought a 25 sheet box of 8x10 hard stored TP. I cut it to 4x5 - one of these quadrants has had the gelatine thinned by having a hard object press on it. These sheets are used as 'guinea pigs' - the sheets to determine CI's etc.
    my real name, imagine that.

    For only one roll, I'd get some Technidol from Ebay in the foil packets. It should still be fine.
