    Macophot 64C is approx. the same emulsion as the Efke 50 film.
    Development can be done according those specifications.

    Best regards,

    Robert

    Thank you very much - I assume its not available in North America, so little is known here... Thanks again.

    Does anyone have any specific experiences, preferences?

    All Efke films are single layer emulsions. Further the emulsion is rather soft, so sensitive for scratches. It's technology of the 50's (ADOX film).

    Best developers for these kind of film are:

    Neofin Blau (Tetenal) or the almost simmular recept: AM50 (Amaloco), a further development of the AM20 from 1936 is one of the best combinations.
    Rodinal (Agfa) is also a good choice.

    Best regards,

    Robert
