Efke 100, Part Two

Yeah, Efke 100, lovely film, as you can see below, even a few years past its best before date, it still sings, especially in Kodak HC110 developer. Now this film needs babying, my processing flow is this, pre soak for a minute or two as I mix up the B dilution, process like I always do. I use a water stop for a minute, then fix for about seven minutes, and then standard rinsing. You have to be careful with Efke as the emulation side is quite delicate, I use my fingers as a squeegee to get rid of excess water.

The film base curls like crazy, and is a dust magnet (more due to the drying environment). As you can see with the portraiture results below. Yes there are dust specs, I know. You have no idea how much I picked off with Adobe Lightroom. But the results...

Camera: Nikon F2 Photomic, Nikkor S 50 f1.4 lens, Nikkor Q 135 f2.8 lens.
Film: Efke 100, HC110 B.
