Thanks for the heads up, some concerns though:

 

- Grain: RMS 12. It's not going to be fine grain like Techpan, Acros(RMS 7), Tmax100 (RMS 8). It's going to be a little grainy, something closer to Foma 100(RMS 13.5) which can look as grainy as 400 film imaged under astronomical lowlight conditions.

 

- It recommends developer D96 which I know next to nothing about. I have read it's intended for B&W cine film but from what I can casually glean I think it's in line with traditional B&W film development. It's an open question how it will respond to traditional developers and how that may affect grain further. Microphen and XTOL should be tried.

 

- Limited production run

 

- Reciprocity? I would bet it's typical... bad. If I can get a few rolls I can test it to see if it can be hypered.

On the other hand, it will see above 650nm.

Anyone know the reciprocity failure for Aviphot 80 AKA Rollei Retro 80s, Adox HR-50 etc?

All those Aviphot/Rollei films have among the worst reciprocity and they don't respond to H2 hypering. I haven't tried HR-50 which I think is no longer available and was just another Aviphot film from what I can remember so, it's likely just as worthless.

The Rollei / AGFA Super Pan 200 had a good Ha response but has a bit of grain.

 

Right now I'm waiting for the Wolfen to test with some recently acquired Kodak 2238, both use the D96 developer.
