    Panatomic-X Development

    Hey Y'all !!

    Any suggestions for developing Kodak Panatomic-X ?

    There is no listing in either side (current film or unlisted data) of the MDC. No luck in finding a tech bulletin from Kodak either.

    Any and all ideas would be appreciated.

    Kodak's Data Sheet for Panatomic X recommends D76 1:1 for 7 minutes at 68F in a small tank. Best bet is to do a clip test just to make sure that the time is correct due to the age of the film. Being a slow film there should not be to much loss of speed in the ASA/ISO.

    Best I've found is Microdol-X 1:0, shot at 25 or so. Yeah, its slower, but you really really must try it. Like they were Made for each other.

    Second the recommendation. They were indeed made for each other.

    As well the closest I've found to that Pan-X/MDX look is Tmax 100 at 64, in MDX 1:0, just like Kodak said. Not exact. But close.

    Timely thread as I have recently picked up a 70mm roll and a 100ft bulk roll. Though I don't think I have any Microdol-x.

    After checking with my 1974 Kodak darkroom dataguide, you have your choice
    Microdol-x 1:3 12 mins @ 68deg. F
    Microdol x or D-76 1:1 7 mins @ 68deg. F
    HC-110 dil B 4m 15s @ 68deg F
    Of course, there are adjustments to be made for enlarger type, lens flare, paper type,etc you know-- all the usual factors that Kodak wants us to think about .
    Hope this helps.
