    Time for a new thread.

    I have only tried this film once, although I have a few rolls. I was advised to expose at 250 ISO rather than the box speed as it is supposed to over expose at 320 ISO. I'll have to give it a go at box though, just to see how it turns out. Grainy and soft and the first two not taken in ideal conditions but interesting results.

    CANON EOS 1n-1000468.

    CANON EOS 1n-1000463.

    CANON EOS 1n-1000481.

    EOS 1n, first 2 with a 1.8/50 and the last one with a 28-70, Ilfosol 3 1:14

    I have the same film and developer. Can you tell me the times you used with this developer?

    Thank you for your kind comments.

    This was the first time I have used this film and when when developing a new film for the first time I usually follow the Massive Dev chart as a starting point. Unfortunately there is no listing for this film and developer combination so having exposed it at 250 rather than box I plumped for the Fomapan 200/Ilfosol 3 directions, which is 6 minutes at 20 C. I don't use Ilfosol 3 very often as I prefer to stand develop in Rodinal. I've got another few rolls of this film and I'm looking forward to seeing how they come out with this combo.

    Hope that's helpful.
