I have a few rolls of 120 and maybe 35mm Tech Pan in the freezer. Wonder if their value will likewise increase. :0 Might be a better investment than a stock portolio.
Michael, no sure if you are joking or not. I shot Tech Pan for years and had it developed in Technidol with great results. Tech Pan takes time to learn because of its charactor. I killed more than a few rolls before my developer and I figured out what subject matter it works well with and learn how to get teh right results with the developer. After some months just using it, it became my main film for some years. Then we experimented and developed it as a transparency and learned to get a smooth continious tonal range out of it and that was it. Jaw dropping to see it as a mf transpareny. It drew me away from Kodachrome as my stock tranparency film. It was like losing my favorite friend when it was discontinued. I've never found an emulsion I liked as well. Pan F is okay but still not Tech Pan.
