    Marc,
    the so called white specks are from unfiltered water.
    Everything should be crystal clear with filtered tap water or even better - distilled water.

    Not having a spectral sensitivity curve here to compare, I cannot say. Sorry.

    I can show the figure below. It is typical of Kodak sensitizations and naming.

    Thanks again. That looks to be close to normal panchromatic sensitization. The pan curve I show is closer to a daylight sensitization whereas the Tech Pan is rather poor IMHO. But, people loved it so who is to complain? Right?

    I confess - I love Technical Pan!
    Here are 2 shots from the autumn of 2010, shot on a 35mm Technical Pan roll expired in 1985 (black colored canister, yellow lettering)
    I used russian Zorki 1 rangefinder, 20mm wide angle lens, orange filter.
    The roll was shot as 50 ASA, developed in Rodinal 1:100 for 15 min

    This one is from the same day, same place but on Adox CMS 20, shot as 10 or 12 ASA, again Rodinal 1:100, 15 min.
    camera was Fed nkvd with its matching original uncoated lens 50mm f/3,5 closed just a single stop from wide open, light yellow filter

    What is a shame is that I won't get a chance to see whether I like or hate Technical Pan...

    I've added some Adox films to my list, along with that specialized developer for the CMS 20. In the meantime, I decided to try the Plus-X emulsion first, and then move on to the Efke after that.

    Trying Plus-X emulsion first, and then move on to the Efke after that sounds like a wise decision, imho..
    The slow speed Efke, 50 asa and 25 asa are silver rich, boutique grade films. I can't comment on Kodak Plus-X in its current state, I hope it didn't turned out into one of those t-grain silver economy wonders.
    Of course, one should respect the work of Kodak B&W film teams and I am sure the workers there put their hearts into making those products.
    Kodak stopped manufacturing most of the films I liked... HIE, Technical Pan.

    btw: Efke/Rollei/Maco have alternatives to:
    HIE ~ Rollei Infrared 400, Efke IR 820, Efke IR 820 AURA
    Technical Pan ~ Rollei ATP 1.1
    Also, from slow speed pov and interesting look Rollei RETRO 80S is quite a ride.
    I might scan some shots from those this coming week

    Someone mentioned seeing Plus-X on the Freestyle clearance page, but I couldn't find that. Was that a mistake, or is this just Freestyle's re-badged Arista Premium?

    I know someone else a few weeks ago commented that Kodak had moved it from their main B&W films to "alternative" B&W film.

    Anyone got anything besides rumors. The last thing we need is a bunch more rumors. Unfortunately you can't trust anything Kodak says about availability.

    Looks like Plus-X its still where it should
    A friend in the states mentioned that freestylephoto clear old batches sometimes, so I hope that was the case.
    Its says Limited offer @ http://www.freestylephoto.biz/clearance.php
    No worries!
