Andre R. de Avillez said:this film gets more and more interesting the more I hear about it.
I wonder how Rollei R3 (and for that matter, it's cousin Maco Cube) would perform in Diafine...
Flotsam said:I get a bit nervous when I hear about "one speed fits all" films. Even with two developers, there must be an optimum exposure/dev time for the best shadow to highlight range and the rest is just under/over exposing and over/under developing.
I'm looking forward to a very interesting and informative R cubed thread on APUG when people start using and testing it in their own darkrooms.

After all, we stuck with film because of image quality. If we just wanted convenience we could have gone digital.
T-Max, Delta, Tri-X, HP5+, Bergger, Efke...
We choose based on image personallity, that's why we want them to survive not just to have something to throw in chemicals.
A new film, with unique characteristics and new technology is always a very welcome surprise in this day and age, but what about image quality, grain, latitude, things that really matter?
Andre R. de Avillez said:I don't see why loading and unloading would be much different from Efke's R25 and R50, both of which have extended red sensitivity. In anycase, loading any 120 film in the sun is asking for trouble, and using your own shadow is common practice (at least for me).
In that case, replace Efke with Ilford SFX and re-ask the question...Brac said:I may be wrong but I thought these two films had reduced red sensitivity and that's why they are described as orthopanchromatic?
