Development Chart 7 - Verichrome Pan : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

I'm now collecting developing times for Kodak Verichrome Pan.

I remember an old photographer telling me VP has a double emulsion, so I decided to do a web search and came up with this link:

I shot quite a few rolls of Verichrome Pan when I went to the Four Corners area last year and was very pleased with the results. I developed in PMK and Pyrocat-HD.

Please include: developer, dilution, time, temperature, agitation method, comments, etc. Unless otherwise specified, I will assume you are using the manufacturer's recommended speed rating.

I'm using the time from your website of 9 minutes for PMK, Ed, and find it to be right on. The Film Development Cookbook recommends 11 minutes, which results in very dense negatives. Good luck with your project.

Try this film in D-76, straight, @ 20C, which gives some beautiful tones ; N+1 ; EI 250 ; 10 minutes

N ; EI 125 ; 7 minutes

N-1 ; EI 80 ; 6 minutes

Agitation ; constant for the first 30s, then 10s every 30s thereafter.

in Rodinal 1:50, 10 min @72 deg continuous for 30 sec, 5 sec every 30 seconds (two inversions), EI 80

in PMK 1:2:100, 7 min at 74 deg, continuous for 30 sec and one vigorous inversion every 15 sec (see Gordon's PMK book), EI 80

I can't get the link to the VP site to work.

Here it is. If you have to type it, remember it is case sensitive.

-- Ed Buffaloe (, April 11, 2001.

a little late I know but if anyone is interested... EI 80. HC110 diluted 1:14 for 8 minutes. Aggitate for the first 30 secs and twice every thirty seconds afterwards.

beautiful stuff.
