Tech Pan- DX Coded?

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by Martin Francis, Jul 13, 2004.

  1. Pretty self-explanatory, really- I was thinking of taking some slow B&W film
    on holiday with me to put in my Mju II which, of course, doesn't have manual
    ISO setting. Is Technical Pan DX-coded, and if so is it coded for ISO25?

  2. Since it has no "speed" as such, I don't believe it was ever DX coded.
    You can buy stickers for those cameras that lack the ability to manually set
    a speed.

    It is not coded and the speed you set should be related to the developer you
    use. I found 64 good for development in Rodinal. There was no speed I liked
    in Technidol.

    Why would anyone buy a camera that needs DX coding to function? I'd
    drill some holes in it and use it for a saltwater fishing lure. God,
    manufacturers should have their ass paddled for that.

    I knew a guy who was given a Rolleimagic as a gift years ago. It was
    not manually usable-if the meter died you went nowhere. He had it set
    in a block of Castolite plastic, which was really a cool thing to
    do,except that the plastic didn't get in there all the way and there
    are bubbles in the plastic. This is the cool solution for these
    cameras, but I'd drill a few discreet holes and then use a vacuum
    chamber so the air comes out while the plastic is fully liquid.

  5. Why would people use film in the first place? Carving things into rock
    worked just fine! No need to develop the rock, either.

  6. And none of those archival processing failure horror stories either.

    not just that - rock is much better when you need to hit trolls with
    it than film ;-)

  8. Indeed. You can even carve a personalized message into it.
