Kodak Super XX Film Info Needed

Post by pzo » Sat Apr 18, 2015 2:02 am

I've searched the intertubes high and low, and tried a lot of searches on this forum, but I've not found anything on shooting and processing that ancient, venerable Kodak Super-XX film. Quite a bit for 35mm, but not 16mm reversal. Kodak, in their save every penny bankruptcy mode, doesn't even have information on their website. If it isn't current, it never existed.

Overlooking the age factor, I need the original ASA and development times in (I presume) D-96.

Thanks!

Hi , If you can find the 35mm reversal xx film details on processing / then 16mm would be around the same time as it's the same film , so won't be much in it ? also being and old film ,you always going to have a risk factor , just less chemicals , what bleach would you be using ? that's the key .

just going on my year's of darkroom cooking ?

I have a box of 4x5 sheets with the spec sheet which says it's ASA 200. I shoot it at ASA 25 and Semi-Stand develop it in Rodinal 1-100 for 1 hour, but that's for negative, not reversal. It expired around 1980.

I bought a 1952 Kodak Movie Dataguide on eBay for $7, just got it. It rates Super XX as ASA 100.

No, I've not found anything helpful regardless of the format, 16mm or 35mm. I think I shot some of the 35mm XX WAY back, from Freestyle.

Isn't this stuff the same as Tri-X but rated at 200asa. It is while since I used it but i just developed it to a negative and reversed after videoing it!

I just used a basic developer, probably Paterson or Ilford. Anyhow it worked. Bit grainy though.
