View Full Version : Neopan 1600 and T-Max developer
In the datasheet for Neopan 1600 the dev. time for NP 1600@ISO 1600 in 20°C is a mere 4,5 minutes. This seems very short to me. Rated @ ISO 3200 the datasheet says 10 minutes, more than twice the time. Could the ISO 1600 time be a misprint? Has anyone tried NP1600 in T-Max developer?
Haven't used it but if you go here: http://digitaltruth.com/devchart.html they say at 1:4 and rated at 1600 the time is 4.5 min. try it and see!
I'm in the process of shooting some film tests with Neopan 1600. I shot the following at 1,000 and developed in D76:
Test 1 - D76 1:3 for 12 minutes agitated every 1 minute. Zones 3-5 looked pretty good, but higher zones blew out.
Test 2 - D76 1:4 for 14 minutes agitaed every 2 minutes. Lower zones looked good, but my zone 10 looked like a zone 7.
Test 3 (pending) - D76 1:4 agitated every 1 minute for 14 minutes. But I won't get that done until late next week.
I've found my normal development time for Nepan 1600. I'm diluting D76 1:4 and developing for 16 minutes with agitation every 1 minute. It looks like a very promising film. I haven't trieed any other developers.
