    What are you useing for Tech Pan Dev.

    For those who still have and are shooting Kodak Technical Pan film,what are you using for your developer?Im happy with what i came up with but am interested in more ideas..here is my formula ,it works for me for now and has similar results to Technidol .ideas,comments,revisions are welcome.
    -5 Grams Metol
    -20 Grams Sodium Sulfite
    -25 Grams Sodium Carbonate
    -water to make 946 ml
    - for use ,dilution 1:16 at 20 c degrees
    ( this is basically Beutler 105 only less Sodium Sulfite and a different dilution)
    I shoot the film at ISO 20

    more incite to this film development is welcome,and /or comments on this film,what has worked for you ?
    thanks

    Re: What are you useing for Tech Pan Dev.

    If your preference is for a High-Definition Developer...
    I would start with something similar to the following:

    Beutler (Per L of Working Solution).
    Metol 1.0 g
    Sodium Sulfite 5.0 g
    *Sodium Carbonate 5.0 g

    FX1 (Per L of Working Solution).
    Metol 0.5 g
    Sodium Sulfite 5.0 g
    *Sodium Carbonate 2.5 g

    *Then, I would reduce and/or change my Accelerator accordingly.
    Thank-you. -Tim.

    I've had good results with 510-Pyro,1:300, semi-stand development for 20 mins at 70F (continuous agitation for the first minute, and 15 secs at 10 min mark.) EI 32.

    Good luck!

    For most subjects I prefer ordinary continuous tone film in standard developers. Tech Pan was saved for high contrast images, and developed in Dektol. It also solarizes nicely in Solarol developer.

    brian kosoff processed his in c41 developer. I've read a little about it but have yet to try it myself. I don't have that much tech pan left but man, I love the stuff.

    iso 200, dektol ( 1:3 ) ( or sprint paper developer ( 1:9 )) - 3 mins
    i don't recommend shaking it like a paint can, unless it is roll film
    there is a thread about that burried in the site archives

    I did some developing of tech pan in C41 developer. It's a bit on the high contrast/low film speed scale. Things improved with TD-3.
    May tomorrow be a better day.

    Is there a market for a long roll of 'load your own' Tech Pan? Kept cool in the refrigerator, not in the freezer. Have been meaning to use it but realize it isn't going to happen.
