    Shanghai film processing

    Hey everybody,
    I just bought a few packs of 4x5 Shanghai 100 ISO film, and I was wondering if anyone has had any experience processing this film. As for times, I couldn't find anything on Massive Development Chart for this film with HC-110 or D-76, my old standbys.
    Any information would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Ari

    Hi Ari. The film normally comes with instructions for D-76, which is what I use. Otherwise, you can find the developing instuctions in the ebay listing (try this one http://cgi.ebay.com/Shanghai-B-W-Negative-Camera-Sheet-Film-4x5-ISO-100_W0QQitemZ350226581688QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_2?hash=item518b2188b8&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12|66%3A2|39%3A1|72%3A1205|293%3A1|294%3A50).

    For other developers I have used the information for Ilford FP4 with success.

    Best, Tim

    Tim or Ari,

    Since we are on the Shanghai film subject, need your advice.

    I am about to open my very 1st box for loading - how does the film emulsion orientation goes ?

    I have seen the TMX film example which has two notches on the top right-hand so as to have the emulsion facing me.

    thnx,
    Sean

    Hi Sean,

    With the half-circle notch in the upper right corner, the emulsion is facing you. I think it is standard for all sheet film that the notch code for the brand is in the upper right corner.

    I am an election specialist, and it was Anwar's by-election I was down that way for. Then my organization had a meeting in Penang last fall, so I went down for that as well.

    Best, Tim

    Sean,
    What Tim said; I had to look it up too.

    BTW, I got excellent results using the following:
    Shanghai 100 4x5 film
    EI: anywhere from 50 to 100 ISO
    8 minutes in HC-110 (dilution B)
    @ 22C

    This was in a Jobo tank, twelve sheets, with continuous rotation, and a 1 minute pre-soak.

    I'll post some photos next week.
    All the best,
    Ari
