    In a similar vein i've got a pack of 12 Perutz Peromnia Rapid (red label) 13x18cm glass plates, which have been in cold storage for at least 50 years.

    I'll try one first with a lens with an actual shutter before using the rest with the Aplanat casket set

    I have a Nikor tank and considered doing them that way, but I don't have that much pack film, and I've got it adjusted perfectly for 4x5", so I'm hesitant to change it.

    I used Royal Pan rated at ASA 200 (reg 400) for newspaper work for several years developed in exotic DK50. Prints made a great half tones with 130 line screens. Royal X Pan was actually to grainey for good night football photos, the grain really messed up when 130 line screens were used, worked and looked much better with 85 line. I was shooting 4x5 with Ascor 200 ws strobes and I guarantee when the Great Yellow God discontinued it it was no loss to me. Liked Royal Pan very much, then they introduced TriX and I never looked back!

    Royal Pan, though is/was a very lovely film, with an un-ending straight line.

    Replaced by TMY, witht the same charecteristics, and the improvement was welcomed !

    I still have ... a LOT..of 8x10 Royal in the freezer....and it's just lovely. Especially because it was about a penny per sheet. Yippee.

    I have some royal pan also. Exp date 1994. Shot at 400 and developed in d76 1:1 there is more fog than I like but is still usable. (worth shooting, but not anything important) I don't think it would do very good in my standard pyrocat. Next outing will be at 200 and 100 with some benzo in the developer. I also have some tri-x in film packs to try. I'll develop them at the same time. ( love DBI with night vision goggles, any film any developer any temp, make some gumbo)

    royal pan

    I used it in the 50's- made a great portrait film. I seem to remember D76 as
    the developer, but the mind is not clear at that distance. It would be fun to
    fool around with it again, kinda like going home.

    processing times for royal pan?

    i have a box of 5x7 that i got for free, expired in 1971 i think (on vacation at the moment).
    does anyone have times for say, d76?
    its a box of 100, i'll be willing to try other developers if needed.
