Nikkormat FT2, NIKKOR-S.C 50mm f/1.4, 1/125, f16 – Ansco/Gaf Hypan 320 rated at ISO 200
Developed in Ilford Ilfotec DD-X at 1:4, 10 mins at 20°c.

A couple of years ago, as part of the Emulsive Secret Santa, I was sent a roll of 35mm film labelled ‘Hypan 320’ and I finally decided to shoot it on Expired Film Day last week.

I haven’t been able to find much out about this film other than it was likely to have been from a bulk roll of 1960s vintage, with the only exposure and developing advice I found suggesting exposing at ISO 200 and developing as per Ilford FP4 Plus and this is exactly what I did.

The development advice was spot on but the roll could’ve done with at least another stop of exposure… I’m pleased to get any image at all out of a roll of film so old though!

Digitised using Nikon D5500 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8, pixl-latr and Negative Lab Pro plugin with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

Nikkormat FT2, NIKKOR-S.C 50mm f/1.4, 1/125, f5.6 – Kodak Tri-X rated at ISO 200
Developed in Adox Rodinal at 1:25, 7 mins at 20°c.

Another image from a roll that’s been sitting in a camera for months!

As an afterthought the last thing I packed for my trip to the Isle of Whithorn in October 2019 was an untested Nikkormat FT2 loaded with a roll of Kodak Tri-X (rated at ISO 200 by mistake).

When it came to (finally) developing the film I thought ‘in for a penny, in for a pound’ and decided to use Adox Rodinal, a developer I’d never used before (a couple of people have expressed surprise at that fact!)

I’ve not shot much Tri-X so making comparisons is difficult but at first look I’m rather pleased with how this roll has turned out, with just the right amount of contrast and pleasant grain. It’ll be interesting to see how the roll of Tri-X (rated at ISO 400 this time) I’ve just finished compares…
