    You might save the Tech Pan for those shots where you want to boost the contrast without the shortcomings of pushing normal film. Developed for high contrast (I usually use print developer) it is great for photographing clouds and other low contrast subjects.

    Like others have said, many developers will work with TP. I personally like Rodinal but then I like Rodinal for everything. What has always shocked me is people looking for a developer to reduce contrast with TP. What is the point of shooting it if you don't want a high contrast film?

    I got the film for this very reason (and it was only a fiver for 50 sheets!) so I think I will stick with the Rodinal and take some pictures of clouds!!!
    Hope the sky is interesting tommorrow.

    I've processed Tech Pan in Rodinal at 1:300 for 13 1/2 minutes at 70F. The first roll looked good, but the negatives were thin on the second roll.

    I think I underagitated the second roll, so I'll keep that in mind for my next roll.

    I shoot TP when I want high contrast, non-existent grain and very high acutance.

    If I want normal pictorial contrast, fine grain and high acutance I generally shoot TMax-100.

    By all means use Technidol. As noted, B&H still stock it, and you will never duplicate the results. That film is pure perfection. Five dollars for 50 sheets? The seller must be deep in the ether.
