Is it just me, or does the 120 size of this film curl like crazy? Maybe the film base is thinner than I'm used to, but I'm having fits with this film. It's too bad, because I really LIKE this emulsion...

I bought 20 rolls, and have shot two so far. The second one came unspooled somehow in the camera and I had to abandon it after about 7 frames (I have it in a bag in the fridge waiting to be developed.) I at least got the first roll through the camera, but my tests had very strange results. I, too, thought that the film was curly and very thin, which had me worried about scratching or breaking the emulsion while loading it, but it turned out OK.

If anyone has some times for Pyrocat-HD for this film, please publish them. I am thinking the ISO is actually very close to 100 based on what I saw with the first roll, but I might have developed it too long. It looked sooty compared to tmax 100 (but I understand that is fairly normal). In the enlarger the times were much shorter for the JandC 100 even though they looked over-developed compared to the roll of tmax 100 I did at the same time, which was very strange to get used to.

I'm think I used pyrocat hd 1:1:150 semi-stand for 14 minutes, but I can't remember for sure.

Thanks,

William
