    Help with film...

    I recently was gifted with a 150 foot roll of Kodak Pan 2484, and don't have a clue where to start with it.Anyone know what speed it is, is it high speed recording film? I've tried looking it up on the net and couldn't find anything on it, even at Kodak. Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance..

    Thank you Christopher, the tech sheet is exactly what I need. I shot a few frames last night, iso 160 and developed in D-76 1+1 for 13 minutes at 20c. The negatives are dense and a tad difficult to print, loads of base fog and somewhat gritty. I think this will be fun to experiment with, but I'm not trusting it to anything important.

    I only had time to make one 5x7 enlargment, after an hour of running test strips on the frames I shot. Had to go to grade 4 to get decent contrast enlarging through the base fog. I'll shoot some more and develope with a restrainer and cold temp to try to keep fog to a minimum.
    This is iso 160, flash-1/60 f11, D-76 1+1/13 mins @20c., with 3 min presoak, stop and three min fix.(clip test cleared 55 secs)

    I start exposing unknown or long expired bulk film stocks by shooting a reflective b&w target found in old Kodak dataguides.

    I light it evenly, and use the grey card on the facing page to establish a metered vaule for an assumed speed. If it is thought to be say, 400, I will shoot it at 50, 100, 200, and 400. I have never found old film to gain speed.

    I shoot three sequences this way, and snip the shot film off the camera in the darkroom and load to a reel each time I shoot a sequence.

    Then I have three short reels to fiddle developing times with.

    If fog is huge, I will add benzotriazole as a restrainer, and then re-shoot, because it will change the effective speed of the film.

    Hope this generic method helps.

    Might not have an anti halation backing? The glow on the white hand in the sample image seems a bit pronounced.

    Then again if it was CRT recording film, it would not be built to see and record anything all too bright in the first place.

    From what I can see, it's a fairly decent film with a bunch of grain. I'm assuming her hand picked up a lot of the flash but it's strange that it had no more affect than that.

    It had alot more glow than that, I did a burn in to tame it some. There isn't an AH coating and the flash really made her hand pop out. I have some Benzotriazole, am going to use it next batch.

    It looks like I might have to send the other roll to you.
