Dev Party – The Panatomic Brain

On this episode of Dev Party, both Eric and Vania develop some very expired Panatomic X! What is Panatomic X? This legendary emulsion of old was once the most beloved black & white film of professional photographers of decades past.

Vania’s Panatomic X expired in November of 1982, while Eric’s went “bad” a few months earlier in June of 1982 (the same month Duran Duran’s “Hungry Like a Wolf” was released).

While developing, Eric regales us with a short and quick history of Kodak Panatomic emulsion, starting in 1933, and going up to 1987 (or 1989)!

Both developed in HC-110 (technically LegacyPro L110, but same thing).

Vania devved in HC-110, dilution B for 6mins. And here are a few of her shots:

Eric also devved in HC-110, dilution H for 9mins. Here are some of his:
