    Uh, ALL modern b/w films (with the exception of Efke/Adox) are multi-layer emulsions, certainly Tri-x and T-max films, all of Ilfords b/w films, Fuji Neopan films, Acros, etc., they are all multi-layer films, and all of these do just fine in Pyro type of developer solutions. I know, I have processed most of them myself in my own darkroom. Why would the Rollei R3 be any different in its reaction to Pyro? I can't see it. While one may need to use "special" developers to gain some of the "features" advertised for the R3 film, the fact is, if it is a silver-based emulsion it will work with Pyro.

    IMHO, when you're buying a roll of R3 you're paying for a lot more than you can get out of it with pyro. I don't think that you can get a dense negative with it, if it is what you're looking for, and my own tests with this developer didn't lead to anything useful, althought it was useable.

    About that layer issue: A third party photochemist was asked about the usefullness of one of his developers (which worked very well on those films Phototone mentioned above) on the R3 and he replied that the layer structure of the R3 makes it different from other films regarding suitable developers.
