    Looks like it's document copy microfilm. I've used some but not this one. By itself they have extreme contrast and very high dmax.

    In D76 you'd probably get black shadows, white highlits and little in between. I don't know HC and super prodol but I suppose they are fairly standard developers like D76 while this film needs very compensating developer like Rodinal 1+200. Even using that it still is very contrasty. You might search for ways of developing Tech Pan.

    It doesn't really have ISO/ASA. Because of high contrast EI is very dependent on what you shot, what results you want and development. You might need quite a lot of testing.

    Well, it says ISO 6 on the box and I did not do any testing, the original post was my first ever roll. Of course, feel free to test to your heart's content if you feel so inclined...

    Uh, my mistake. Microfilms usually don't have iso rating and I assumed it is a micro. I've used some of them and they needed testing and give similiar results.

    Thanks for the advice Domin and Dirk-san. I'm keeping it in the freezer for the time being.

    The name and look sounds like Fuji's Microfilm. Simalar to Copex in the Agfa (industrial) line, and the imagecaptue line form Kodak. Bluefire and ADOX.DE both have a developer for full range tones for that class of film. In normal deleloper, it will have VERY narrow range of grey as it is intended to make legible copies of old files.
    (one of my old jobs was shooting a few hundred feet a day of microfilm to replace crumbling paper files.)

    This combo has worked for me. You can see a
    couple of scans at www.flickr.com/colusite.

    Good job! Almost looks too conventional now

    When it comes to agitation, can you provide us with some more details please? The pictures look great!
    - You will develop when you become an analog photographer / Exposed Material / Monochromes

    I presoak for 2 min add the dev and agitate gently for the first 30 sec. I then let the tank stand in a basin of 20c water for 60 min, giving it one gentle turn at the mid point. Then just fix, wash and viola!

    Has anyone found a U.S. retailer for Minicopy, or is importing from Japan the only option?
