I bought a short bulk roll of a film I haven’t tried before, so short it could hardly be called bulk. The tin that arrived was smaller than any other I have tried as there was no spool inside. I haven’t seen the film advertised anywhere but on eBay where the description said…EXETER PAN ml X 100 iso MULTI LATITUDE (50iso-250iso).
I got about 5 rolls of 27-ish exposures from the tin, which wasn’t bad for £18. I also had enough left for a very short test roll to figure out the development times.
I shot the film at 100asa and once finished I wandered home and tried to figure out how to develop it. Again, the eBay listing said…
“STANDARD DEVELOPING TIMES DEVELOP AS FOMAPAN 100 PLEASE USE EITHER KODAK/ILFORD CHEMISTRY FOR BEST RESULTS. IF IN DOUBT DEVELOP AS DOUBLE X OR ILFORD HP5”
I used the Fomapan times and Fomadon at 1:50 dilution, 23degrees, agitating every minute. That gave a development time of 7:45 minutes.
Here are the results.
They came out ok, I will definitely buy some more of this film at some point.
