Just shot and developed my first roll of Rollie Pan 25 yesterday. I rated it at ISO25, souped it in D-76 for 5 minutes. These pics won't win any awards, but it's a good starting point for me toabout the film. I think with the almost complete lack of grain, I could go for a 1:1 dilution to try to get a little more contrast.
The film has some serious curl, but also some serious dynamic range. The first shot below I wanted the weed in the foreground as a silhouette, so the was based on the train in the background. The weed was in a semi enclosed shed. I was amazed to find full shadow detail on the plant! I'm going to shoot another roll or two this week, but so far so good. Pity it was so windy yesterday, as I had to use some fairly slow speeds.
The straight scan came out fairly flat/gray, so I had to tweak the curves more than I normally would with Tri-X or similar. Scanned with 8800f, but can't wait to throw them in the Durst tonight and get some prints.
