My friend sent me two rolls of EASTMAN Fine Grain Duplicating Film and I loaded it into 135 cassettes and rated at ISO6. I figured I’d put it in my SRT 101 as at a glance that’s the camera that would actually meter at ISO6, which would make it easier. Besides the fact that I just worked on the camera and needed to test it. I developed it in Rodinal 1+50 Rotary. I think it turned out great, and this roll makes ISO 100 look horrible, as I developed a roll of ISO 100 right after. The film is slightly tricky to shoot and focus, but I like it. There are better shots than these yet, but I just didn’t post them. Film is totally usable for still.

The photo with the airplane is really good and shows off this film well!
Do you recall how long you developed for?
