    Efke 50 (@50) reversal preliminary results

    As usual I get much better results from the reversal process than from the normal one (negative).
    The grain is much finer, the tonality is wonderful (for a 35mm frame) and scanning is easier (although it doesn't make justice to it).

    The procedure seems to be the SAME irrespective of the emulsion type: that is 12min in D-19 + 2g hypo per 250ml, @18°C. The remaining steps are the same (the second developer type must be any strong developer you have handy - this time I deviated from plain D-19 and used Rodinal).
    I get little emulsion damage near sprocket holes with Efke film and permanganate bleach but I suspect it's due to friction inside the camera or possibly a film defect.

    Here's the examples:

    EFKE 50 is a great film for reversal processing. We get much of it!
