    A swedish retailer has recently started to sell Efke PL400 (sheet film) claiming it's made in england for Efke and should be developed as HP5+.

    Edit: Oh, I missed that www.Photax.se already had been linked to in this thread

    Efke KB400 is rebranded Ilford HP5. We carry the Ilford films under the Adox brand in both FP4 and HP5 in 35mm and 120.

    We don't list developing times because the times for FP4 and HP5 are well known.

    Jumpin' Jiminy! If Ilford stopped producing, how many different film and paper brands would suddenly dry up?
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    By the way... have you ever seen/tried Svema films? (I think it's Ukrainian) The documentation for those is just perfect. It says: "emulsion number: xxxx; developing time: 7 mins" and nothing else... My friend just finished a roll - we are very curious about the results... :o)
    I've used Svema films I picked up in Moskau in a Zorki III (1955) developed in a kind of Pyrocat HD (added some Vitamin C) diluted 1:1:100 15 mins at 20°C, the 100 speed was sharp but a kind of grainy. You might also try the developer of life (Rodinal) 1:50 at about 9 mins. I was looking for Tasma films, but it seems like the only source for this russian film is Retro in England, I guess Nigel got his from James Bond

    Good luck with your films,

    Colour? We can always use an airbrush later...
