    can't resist this one film

    As I was buying another batch of E6 positive in the ISO100 and 200 range I couldn't resist buying another 2 rolls of expensive provia400X. It's such a lovely thought being able to shoot chromes up to ISO800.

    Do you have an film you can't resist buying although you don't really "need" it?

    I could never resist Kodak Technical Pan, beautiful film! I paid a fortune last year for a long out-of-date box of 5x4, just made me sad for the demise of Kodak's great black and white films....

    I couldn't resist buying Kodachrome when Jessops sold it close-dated at £5 per roll from their rummage boxes. Ah, happy days... :-)
    testing...

    Buying extra film and chemistry is always good. Buying extra lenses and cameras are for discussion. I do both .
    Also spent fortune for 30-40 meters of Technical Pan with technidol on ebay this year

    Together wit films guy was selling Technidol, Spur developer and JOBO dynamic DOKU infrared P3. I was lucky .
    I did not try Spur nor Jobo - I know that technidol is what I need, afraid to play with TP - too valuable for me.

    You know, darkosaric, I process Tech Pan in normal developers. Figure about 3/4 the time used for Pan F. Rate Tech Pan as for Pan F. - David Lyga

    Thanks. I still have 4 bottles of Technidol, but couple of rolls of TP I will be forced to develop in something else. Will keep this in mind.

    So you're saying tech pan in Ilfso 3 would be ok?

    What shoot DD-X? It's made for t grain films so it won't take advantage of that since tech pan is traditional grain, so would Ilfsol 3 be better since its made for low ASA fine grain traditional grain films?
