    Rollei RETRO 80S and/or Rollei Superpan 200 in Tetenal Ultrafin, anyone?

    Hi

    Just purchased 5 rolls of each to use for a little of this and that (some IR, some not).
    Currently I have Rodinal dev and a bottle of Tetenal Ultrafin.

    Beacuse the shelf-life of the Tetenal is shorter (and that I am currently experimenting with films and devs), and my later plans are to use these films for IR, I am looking to develop these films in Tetenal Ultrafin.
    - My experience so far, is that Ultrafin makes quite a difference in the grain department, compared to caffenol and Rodinal. (though caffenol-c-l and tetenal ultrafin are similar in grain with ie. Polypan-F).

    Problem:The massive dev chart doesn't have much information regarding these films and Tetenal Ultrafin. Internet search was also more or less fruitless (only found a similar thread in Polish, which stated 1:10 for 9 minutes came out "good").

    Anyone with experience and/or tips on how to approach this? (I'd rather not bungle roll after roll of 120 film due to the expense).

    I've now done a few searches on line and found a few hints on where to place the initial trials for 80s in Tetenal Ultrafin.
    Will post the results from Rollei Retro 80s @ Ei 80, Tetenal Ultrafin 1:20 for 11 minutes @ 20 degrees, once I've tested it.

    Additionally, there exists a datasheet at macodirect, listing several developer-combinations with this film here:
    http://macodirect.de/download/Rollei_RETRO80S_TA_dt.pdf

    I know this thread is indexed by google, so I'll leave any information i find in this thread

    Anyone with more information, feel free to chip in

    Hi,

    I had problem with Retro 80s in Rodinal: shadows details were weak. I guess next time I will expose it at iso 50.

    regards,

    RR80S E.I. 50 in Calbe A49 is pretty good. In CG-512/RLS (24C) also but E.I. 32-40 only. In Rodinal you will have a pronounced S-curve hence the problem in shadows/highlights.
    But the grain is increadible small for this film. In Tetenal Ultrafin, no idea what can come out......

    regards,
    Rollei 80S with a red filter on exposed @64 and put into a semi-stand bath in R09 1:100 for 40 minutes looks like that:
