Fuji Neopan 400

greenspun.com : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

I have just purchased a couple of boxes of this film in 4x5 sheets, and would appreciate comments from those who have used it (probably in 35mm or 120, as the sheets are only available in Japan). I was thinking of developing in Microphen, and rating at something like 640, or in D76, at a rating of something like 250 - 320. Any other ideas?

I do mine [35 mm] in Sprint or Rodinal and like it just fine - rated @400.

I did mine in Ilford ID-11 1:1 @ ISO 400 with good results. I used Fuji's standard recommendation for D-76 as ID-11 and D-76 are very similar to each other.

According to my own experience the best developer for this film is X-tol, stock dilution.
