The coated paper can be stored for a while, although like most things Ďphotographicí, indefinitely is probably a bit optimistic. Iíve certainly used paper that was coated months before exposure. I...

Thanks Colin. I donít recall seeing those images back in 2018. They are very nice. Why do you use 1+2+50? Had you tried 1+2+100 and found it unsuitable?
Thanks ,
Alex.

Rollei IR400 and PMK 1+2+100

Has anyone tried this combination? I have a 35mm film to develop, and thought this might be an interesting combination. It was exposed at 12 and 6 ASA.
