    i'm thinking of trying a low iso black and white film. has anyone used rollei pan 25? is there anything that prevents it from being processed? i'm also planning on trying ilford pan f, there seems to be a lot of people using this type.

    any other options or input?

    i generally shoot in bright daylight and would be using a tripod. if i'm missing any other parts of the equation let me know.

    thanks

    I love Ilford Pan F.

    I think the Rollie 25 is similar (or the same) as Agfa APX 25.

    Are you processing the film yourself or through a Lab ?

    lab for now, i'm just getting back into it and am not to the point of self development. i have a lab near by that seems to do all the less common processes, but i guess i'll check before i assume.

    is there a noticeable difference in grain from 50 to 25?

    Yeah I know. I was sad when that happened ... that's when I switched primarily to Ilford Pan F.

    Agfa Pan + Agfa Rodinal developer was a great combo.
    Ilford Pan F + Rodinal wasn't bad either.

    Both are very low grain film.
    I did a 16x20 with Agfa 25 one time ... and I was very impressed.
