Hi I thought I would share this in case there's any people out there interested in using 35mm Kodak Vision 3 Stock in a SLR.
The test photo's were taken under fairly low light.
Rated at:
ASA:500
T:1/4
F:5.6

taken at:
4 sec, 2 sec, 1 sec, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/15

I used ILFORD ILFOSOL 3 for 10:30 at 20 degrees.
It's easier then people make it out to be the only problem is the remjet backing, i use bicarbonate powder in water around 27 degrees for a minute to remove the remjet.

Also please not that I locked the exposure for a overall scan, but I played around with the RAW files of the over exposed images and was surprised how much detail I could still retain.

Hi There-

Is the bicarbonate powder just baking soda or something else? Where do you get it? Agitation or just let it sit?

I occasionally do slop tests of ECN in HC110 and would love to have an easier way to remove the rem-jet!

Hi Patrick,
I just use baking soda from the shops, I agitate it for the first min then for 10 secs every minute after. You can do stand developments to really help mask any grain if you like.
I'll be doing ecn-2 devs in a few weeks and once i get that down i'll make a post for that as well.
