Caffenol-C-L + high speed film

Recipe and semi-stand development as in former post. 50 minutes at 22 °C. Remember to adjust dev times as usual for differing temperatures.

Neopan 1600 exposed at about EI 1600, difficult to tell with night photography. I'm confident to gain real 3200 with longer development.

Shot with a 35mm SLR and very cheap telezoom lens. Crop 10x10 mm negative size

Caffenol-C-L is a breakthrough with high speed film imho. Very low fog level, sharp, nice and small grain for 1600, very wide tonal range, perfect even development.

I love coffee - Reinhold

Do you keep it at 22 °C by running water on it - or is it simply your room temperature?

Is there a adjustment table you use to adjust dev time for temperature - or do you approximate it?

These are fantastic results...

Hi August, I keep the tanks in a "water jacket" with the temperature I want. I use a correction table from Ilford, you can download on their site as a pdf-document.

Development temperature corrections in °C @ for the needy.

I think it may not be wise to print it directly on your blog Reinhold due to the probable Ilford copyrights.

Thank you, Bo. As a very rough rule of thumb add or distract 10 % for every °C deviation - Reinhold
