    I searched the forums for a bit more info, but didn't come up with much.

    Last time I ordered from Freestyle, I ordered a few rolls of ADOX Ortho25 in 120 because it sounded interesting AND it came with its own cannister! :lol: Now that I have it, I realize that I have NO idea what to use it for. Suggestions?

    I've used it before but can't remember and dont have my notes to hand, I think it was for copying artwork/prints/negs though. H

    Shoot whatever you like with it.

    Develop it by inspection under a red safelight in HC-110 (1:100 from concentrate) or I've heard but not yet tried Rodinal (1:200 from concentrate). Yank it out after about 5 minutes and hold it up in front of the safelight. Pull when the highlights are where you want them. Reading the highlights takes a little getting used to...I would err on the side of overdevelopment, at least at first. I use a very slow/gentle developing scheme to draw out as much tone variation as possible. My times for Kodak Ortho are 10-12 minutes at room temp, agitate 5-10 sec every minute. The developer is so dilute that it's hard to really over-develop anyway. Do not use an acid stop bath, just water.

    Shoot a roll at 25, and one at 12.

    Shot a few rolls couple years ago back at the Joshua tree meet-up and way back in school. I have only developed in dektol or A&B (negative to burn offset printing plates). The last time used dektol also developed to inspection , recall it being about 4-5 minutes

    Loaded a roll in my A1 back in August, but have only taken a few shots, now I need to shot more Ortho because I mistakenly ordered 4 roll from Freestyle and I have some ice too

    That brick in the wall shot is positively rad (did I just say rad?)
