    Few months ago i've bought two rolls of this film(expired in 1993).I shot it and now i realise that I have no idea how to develop it.Does anyone have a recipe for it?

    If shot at 64 ISO
    Rodinal 1+25 6.25 min 20c.

    Beware that film that old will have a bit of base fog.

    Try Home - The Film Photography Project . I think I just saw some mention of it in their newsletter (or it could have been it was in stock or something.) You could ask on their message board which is their Flickr group page.

    One guy told me that Svema films are losing ~50% of sensitivity.And I might be wrong,but I think that these parameters are for new film.Anyways,thank you, will experiment

    Could be, Ilford Pan F 50 is like that when it gets old. Good luck.
