A Zorki-6 and I-50 back from refurbishment.

Real nice camera this second Z-6 body:



I loaded the camera from bulk, the NEW Retropan 320 Soft film. I did some shots on E.I. 320 and development in Rollei Supergrain 1+9.



First impression:

1. This is a real grainy film, even a bit more then Foma Fomapan 400 film.
2. The film is drying absolute flat.
3. Effective film speed around iso 320-400, a push development is possible but not much higher then iso 640-800.
4. There are no markers or index on the film strip. It is completely blanc. This is from a bulk 30,5m/100ft film.
5. This emulsion looks like the in 2001 discontinued Fomapan T800 film. I have to dig up that data from 1997-2001 but at that time I had no densitometer.

Next developer: HC-110 dilution B (1+31). Retropan exposed on E.I. 320 again.

A new test strip is hanging to dry. I took 8:30 minutes (20C) because I am printing in Split Grade with a combination of a diffusion box and a condensor enlarging system (Dunco II 67 120 Pro). In optimum preformance the highlights are around 1,25 logD with the densitometer.

Control strip on zone V. Should be around 0,72 logD.

Just for a practical impression of the wet strip: Pretty good now.

Another interesting thing is the very fast Clear time of this film. In a regular Acid type fixer (RXA) 1+4 less then 30 seconds. So the minimum recommended fix time of 3 minutes is possible without any problem.
