Has anyone used this film? I'm being given 400' of the stuff which has been stored in a freezer. Any thoughts on how good the film is? Contrast? Resolution? Highlights and shadow effects? Any thoughts on this somewhat older style film? Thanks......David Strachan

Unless there was a change, I thought that Pan X referred to Panatomic X, the fine grain film that was rated about 32 ASA. Plus X is a ASA 125 film. I think they quit making Panatomic some time ago, which may be the reason for the cold storage.

I would guess that if you give it good exposure for the shadows and test a couple of rolls to get the development for the highlights, you ought to be OK.

Looking around, I guess that is a new film that I am not familiar with. sorry I cant help you. Let me know what you come up with. I may want to try some.

If there's no mistake with the ISO rating or name of this film, it's likely that this is motion picture stock, especially as it's in a 400' length. It's useable, but your on your own as far as developing technique is concerned.
