    Old Film Help - Kodak Portrait Panchromatic Film

    On the weekend I picked up a box of Kodak Portrait Panchromatic Film, expired 1968, cold stored. I haven't been able to find any details online about the speed of the film or developing (short of HC-110 being mentioned on the box). Can anyone here shed some light?

    I probably will try shooting it this coming weekend, probably ASA-25 to test it out.

    Anyone have any old documents on this film?

    Eastman Kodak Portrait Panchromatic had a speed of ISO 50 in Daylight and ISO 32 in Tungsten light. It was only available in Sheet sizes afaik. The Kodak Reference Handbook page 53 and 54 has all the information you need regarding this particular film you can download the Handbook under the following link: https://archive.org/details/KodakReferenceHandbook
    I would use an even lower ISO setting ISO 12 or so good luck.
