    2481 film processing

    I have a long-frozen 100' roll of Kodak 2481 (infrared/Estar base) that I plan to play with in the near future. Kodak processing was for the ancient Versamat B&W processor with Versaflo developer and wonder if anybody has a formula, or suitable replacement for it for processing in Nikkor tanks.

    The usual starting place is of course D76 1:1 and also D19/4 min for higher contrast. I imagine I will find quite a high fog level in this old film, and am open to apug suggestions.

    Thanks!

    2481 is just HIE (High Speed Infrared). See Kodak's F-13 datasheet.

    Expect base fog. Also, don't expect a lot of remaining IR sensitivity, the IR sensitizing dye isn't stable.

    Thanks for the reference. As I recall, base fog was high when this film was new. We'll see how much if any IR sensitivity remains.

    You still there? Since this is an old post, I'm not going to bother with it unless someone's listening.

    Yes, still here, but film remains in the freezer because I have not found time to play with it.
