    Back in the 80', at university, I shoot a lot of 35mm ORWO NP55 and NP7 movie film stock. NP55 was similar to NP20/22 (their still photography film), but with different base. NP7 was totally different than NP27 (their high speed still photography film). It had 2 layers of emulsion and it wasn't as sharp or fine grained as NP27 film. But it was dirt cheap and I used both films a lot in movie & still cameras. Recently I saw that they have North American agent but I hesitated to call him and order few 400' rolls. If we can (APUG group) order few cans I will be very interested! In that case we can have nice order quantity.

    I contacted them and received ultra fast friendly reply. They also have in stock 100' rolls of their BW negative films!!!

    In the meanwhile I have some results, and I am pleasantly surprised. I processed these films in XTol 1:1. That seems to be a good combo. The results are better than I had expected.

    Hi CMO,
    Great! What emulsion did you use?

    N74plus @400 and UN54 @100. I think I can scan the examples and publish the dev times in a few days, they were pretty normal ( I guessed them).

    Where did you see the 100' rolls? I only see the 400' on their website.

    Hi M. Lointain,
    I send them email last morning telling them (ORWO NA) that shorter rolls (less than 400') are better and cheaper for testing of brand new film on the market.
    George Campbell, ORWO North America replied: "I have 100ft rolls. I was just about to put them up on the site now".
    Well, I hope they will do it!

    Wow, their 16mm and 35mm is the same price?! That's crazy. But crazy GOOD if you're shooting 35mm 'cause the 16mm price is about the same as Kodak's price for Double-X, which means the 35mm is half the price! I might have to try some of that...

    $75 for 400 ft? That doesn't seem too bad.

    It looks like $138.30 plus $10.00 shipping for 35mm/400ft.

    --------
    Here are my preliminary times for XTol 1:1, 'Kodak agitation':

    UN54 7-8 min.

    N74 11-13 min.


    Diafine:

    UN54 3+3 - 4+4 min.

    N74 3+3 - 4+4 min.


    These times are for rotation development, not from me but tested:

    D76 1+1, 20°C Rotation, 5:00, 7:00, 9:00, 12:00

    CI UN54: 0.50, 0.60, 0.66, 0.79
    CI N74: 0.43, 0.52, 0.56, 0.63

    DS-10 1+1, 24°C (!) Rotation, 5:00, 7:00, 9:00, 12:00

    CI UN54: 0.38, 0.58, 0.65, 0.84
    CI N74: 0.46, 0.56, 0.67, 0.86
