    Efke KB-400

    Hi,

    Does anybody know how long the Efke KB-400 (135) should be developed in TMax 1+4 at 20C?

    Many thanks,
    - Lajos

    I find it odd that j&c sells this stuff, but does not even list a time/dev on their site. You could go to jandcphoto.com and then email them to find a time for T-Max dev.

    Does J&C sell KB400? I thought KB100 was the fastest Efke film they handled.
    Film is cheap. Opportunities are priceless.

    Whoa -- when did Efke start making a 400 speed?! I need to get out more...
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    A quick Google search revealed this page with development times (including T-Max at 1+4) for Efke KB400:

    I don't even see KB400 on JandC's page. Where is it?

    Efke does not make a 400 speed film. I believe that Efke KB400 is rebranded HP5.

    Thanks for the answers; the 6.5mins sounds right.
    The truth is here: http://www.digitaltruth.com/chart/unlisted.html (Efke KB-400 = Ilford HP5+)
    I have just developed that roll (4.5 mins, 21C), it looks pretty nice.
    I don't know where it can be obtained in the States, my source is the Erod Foto store in Budapest, Hungary. The price is about $3 per roll, but the darkroom features are just great! eg. the casette can be opened with nails and so on.
    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)

    It's listed on their site. I'll check again, however.
