Does any one here have experience with this film, one of the suggested developers is rodinal at 1:12 fro 8 minutets. Other developers listed were hc 110b for 9 and ilfosol s for 8 min.. I would like an idea of what may actually have worked well for some one. Thanks.

Dusty,

I have shot some test rolls last year when the film was released and developed them in Cube XS, a developer offered by Laborpartner (distributed by MACO, too) especially for that film. The film does contain two emulsion layers. One low-speed fined grained and a coarser grained high-speed layer. Development times are quite long with any developer. Inconvenient for manual agitation, IMO. The film base is clear and gray-blue. The base looks like those of x-ray films. The prints do have a certain characteristic (hard to describe). They are sharp and have medium (and sharp) grain. I found out that it couldn’t replace any of my standard films. However, you should try a few rolls and form your own opinion.

MACO offers two different IR-Films: MACO IR 820c and MACO IR 750c. The CUBE 400c has limited IR capabilities, too. Its spectral sensitivity goes down to about 750nm. The big difference between MACO IR films and Kodak HIE is that MACO uses anti-halation dyes that prevent the typical flare HIE is famous for. However, the dyes are washed out during development and the base is clear, too. Try IR 820c with an RG 715 (Wratten #72) filter. It is avaliable in 4x5, too!
