    Kodak technical Pan

    Just got 50 sheets of Kodak technical Pan. Kodak say develop 8 mins in Technadol, which I don't have and i don't think is made anymore.
    Any suggestions, I presently use Perceptol and ADOX R 09 (more or less Rodinal)

    It's a high contrast film, and Technidol brings it down to normal contrast. Don't use Rodinal. You might give Perceptol, maybe 1:3, minimal agitation, a try, since you have it on hand, but you're probably better off with something like POTA or SPUR.

    David, I'm curious about the 'No Rodinal' comment. Altho it is not what I've used, I've seen a couple of photogs use it successfully.

    Personally, I like Tech Pan for its ability to make N+4 or more and for its red sensitivity. I used a POTA-like developer that was so weak it wouldn't image any film except TP. I think developing TP for normal development is a waste. YMMV.

    You need a low contrast developer for this film. These have either Phenidone used alone or with a small amount of hydroquinone. Ordinary developers will not work as the contrast is too high. Google on the following formulas; Burton, Collins, Delagi, H&W Control, HFD-301, Hodes Low Gamma, Kodak D-78 Modified, Perfection XR-1, POTA Extended Range, SD-2415, T/O XDR-4, TDLC-3.

    I suppose in some situations Rodinal might work with Tech Pan, maybe 1:100 stand development, but unless one has a particular addiction to Rodinal, it's not exactly a compensating developer of the sort that makes it easy to get normal contrast with Tech Pan.

    The Formulary (www.photoformulary.com) has the answers you are looking for. Don't waste precious film (!!!), time and images barking around in the dark (well...) when they have you covered on this. Plus they know a hell of a lot, might have some ideas you haven't thought of and are really friendly people to boot!

    Last year I came into some Tech Pan in 120 format. I sold off a bunch of it and before selling it I tested a roll to make sure it was good. I developed it in D23, but to the D23, I added some Borax (I forget how much, but it wasn't much). The photos turned out very nice with good shadow detail, good sharpness and not too contrasty.

    cheers

    I recently developed a roll of the microfilm Adox CMS 20 exposed at EI 12 in Rodinal 1:100 10min 68F.It was a little underexposed but printed well on grade 3.
    As a first test for Tech Pan in RO9 I suggest EI 10 and 12min in the 1:100 68F.

    We still have a couple of bulk rolls of TP & you can still buy the Technidol developer at:
